  • Thank you Mark for everything you have done for me and my children!
    Read More

    “I hired Mark Chinn during my extremely complicated divorce. I initially looked into hiring him due to his experience and reputation in town, but it was a single statement from him that told me he was the right one to use. That statement basically said that while the marriage may have failed, the family could be preserved. This was extremely important to me because I understood that children need both parents, and the better the relationship between the divorced parents, the better the children will do. Mark helped me navigate the various aspects of my particular case. He drafted language that would help me protect my children from potential endangerment if my ex-wife relapsed (alcohol), as well as putting requirements for continued treatment, random testing if needed, breathalyzer on car, etc. We worked with US state department to protect kids from being moved to another country, which was a huge concern for me (ex-wife was from another country and still has family there). We also structured child support in a manner where the majority of support was directed to kids (health insurance, sports/activities, etc) and a small sum to ex-wife for clothing, food, etc. I felt this was important as I know others who pay large sums of money to their ex's and the money generally doesn't really benefit the children. My ex-wife hired a "bulldog" for an attorney who attempted to smear me with untrue claims. Mark fought for me and helped put an end to the defamation. Custody was a little complicated arranging, but it has served us well. My children are with both parents throughout the week and they have done amazing with this structuring. I have had teachers tell me that the issues they see in children that have divorced parents are not present in my kids, and whatever we are doing, we are doing right. Overall, I don't know of one thing that could be better for the outcome. Things have gone very well. I think one thing you may not see with other attorneys is the follow up. I get an email periodically from Mark to check in and see how things are going and asking if any issues need to be addressed. It has been 3 years since my divorce now and he continues to do this. It really shows that he cares not only for immediate result but also for the long-term success of his clients. Thank you Mark for everything you have done for me and my children!”

  • Mark Chinn is thoughtful, empathetic, and possesses emotional intelligence
    Read More

    “Mark Chinn and Chinn & Associates is in my opinion the premier family law attorney in Jackson, Mississippi, and the South. Mark Chinn and Chinn & Associates represented me in my divorce and child custody case. Mark Chinn is thoughtful, empathetic, and possesses emotional intelligence second to none. I hired an attorney and made a true friend and confidant in the process. Divorce is painful but Mark and Chinn & Associates will carry you until you can walk again and cheer you when you find your legs again. I would not have survived without Mark and Chinn & Associates. I have since moved to New Orleans but Mark still checks on me and my daughter from time to time.”

  • Mark was it for me.
    Read More

    “My divorce was about four years ago but Mark still checks on me from time to time to see how I’m doing and if he can help me with anything that may have changed with my situation. From my first meeting with him, he was kind and informative. There were tense times with my ex-husband during all of that but Mark gave me a sense of feeling he had my back if I needed him but he also encouraged me to come up with a fair settlement proposal (he gave good feedback and input there) and to try to work things out as peacefully as possible which ultimately was the best thing for my son and also my mental health. He even encouraged me to go to a counselor and to take care of my physical health the best I could during that time. This has proven to be good advice that continues to help me move forward in life since that time. Going through a divorce is traumatic enough without having to worry if you have made a good choice for your legal representation. Mark was it for me.”

    “I was sued for divorce. My wife already had a lawyer and had done her homework. This was a second divorce for both of us. We also had a pre nuptual agreement. Mark has an expertice in pre-nuptual agreements. I found out that very few lawyers had ever handled a case involing a pre-nuptual.There was never an ugly word said and all was transparent. The divorce was finalized in only 5 months. I strongly recommend Mark Chinn in a divorce situation.”

    “I felt very comfortable talking with Mark about my case. I thought he was honest, ethical, and actually wanted what was best for my family. He does not sugar coat things, but gives an honest assessment of your case given his years of experience. I felt that Mark handled himself in a very calm and confident manner in the court room. He legitimately worked towards a peaceful resolution and was not just trying to pick a fight. This was a direct contrast to the opposing counsel and I feel that it helped me win my case.”

    “When my husband told me he wanted a divorce and had hired a lawyer, I didn't know where to turn or what to do. Mark was recommended to me and I am so thankful because he was a godsend! His associate, Janeah was extremely supportive and knowledgeable as well and both were always there for me. He found the perfect mediator for my case and helped me to get the alimony I deserved and custody arrangement. He said I got this at the first meeting and he delivered on it! Mark is holistic in his approach, caring, creative and coached me through one of the toughest times of my life, I am forever grateful that I hired him.”

    “Hands down the absolute very best in the business. Mark and his staff are the most professional yet personable people in their field. Maintaining stability and ensuring my children's future was secure was first priority with him. Throughout my divorce, he enabled me to see things through my children's eyes and helped me focus on the priorities of my divorce, my children. I strongly recommend his firm. Great morals and values are a bonus.”

  • Hands down THE BEST in the business.
    Read More

    “Mark Chinn is the absolute finest of attorneys. When I began the painful process of divorce, I had no clue where to turn. While I was initially shocked at the fee I was told would be required up front, Mark explained in detail exactly how his billing process works and laid the fee schedule out in a way that I could understand. While it was difficult for me to come up with the money required to continue my case, I blame that on an absolute wreck of an ex who refused to mediate, and drug our divorce out over three long years. His payment structure allowed me the confidence and freedom to recognize how much my divorce would cost without the worry of unexpected fees and charges. Mark is a man of his word and stood by me throughout the darkest days of my life. While, Mark's objective is always to work with opposing counsel and to help reach a resolution without the pain and expense of trial, that is simply not possible in every situation. However, I cannot imagine having to face the fear and stress of a high-conflict divorce trial without Mark Chinn. Messy does not even begin to explain my divorce. Parental alienation, false allegations, lack of financial support, abuse, private investigators, hired and fired lawyers, cancelled court dates, guardian ad litem, four full days of trial, custody battles, contempt motions, ex serving jail time...You name it, it was part of my divorce. And through it all, Mark was incredible. Mark is present, honest, fair, consistent, patient, and incredibly professional. He is calm, cool and collected at all times and has a way of just comforting your spirit when seemingly surrounded by chaos. His associate, Janeah is nothing but a total bonus! She is a smart, savvy, articulate, patient and incredibly gifted attorney. They always responded to me quickly and completely and kept me abreast of each and every agonizing step of my divorce. I cannot imagine having gone through the past three years of my life without Mark and Janeah by my side. Mark and his entire staff maintained my privacy, showed me nothing but respect and kindness and worked diligently and effectively to help me close a chapter of uncertainty and pain and begin on a new journey of hope and happiness. I thank God every day for bringing Mark into my broken life. He and Janeah never failed to provide the most intelligent, professional and attentive legal representation I could have imagined.”

  • If the circumstances dictate the need for a team of dedicated professionals, experts in their specific disciplines, to expedite solutions then choose Chinn and Associates.

    “Hi Mark, I hope all is well and your family and business are doing terrifically. The way I happened upon you was by asking around through various friends who asked further various friends and the only name which appeared on every list was yours. It seemed axiomatic that I consult the contention. As far as my impressions of the “Chinn Experience” I would offer that if someone needs an attorney they should solicit one, however, if the circumstances dictate the need for a team of dedicated professionals, experts in their specific disciplines, to expedite solutions then choose Chinn and Associates. Moreover, it was to my astonishment that both parties could find accommodation in divorce yet that is what happened. I was counseled to do the best thing for all concerned, including me, and the process was investigated and resolved on time. I was helped to accept my responsibilities, given options, and encouraged with empathy along the way to a mutually satisfying resolve with no regrets.”

  • Put his team on your sideline!
    Read More

    “I hired Mark Chinn and Associates in February 2003 as my attorney in my divorce. Although I had a vindictive soon-to-be Ex who’s only goal was to punish and attempt to embarrass me, Chinn and Associates never stopped believing in me and worked hard to win my case for almost two years. Mark may assign one attorney as your primary representative, in my case the lovely Patricia Williams, but the entire “Chinn Team” was fully aware of the proceedings and willing to provide assistance at any time. I never dreamed a group of attorneys and office staff could be so caring, supportive, and hard working for someone they just met. Anyone needing a divorce attorney would be extremely wise to sit down with Mark and give him a chance to “Put his team on your sideline!””

  • I was particularly moved and surprised by this aspect of Chinn care.
    Read More

    “Dear Chinn & Associates, No matter how necessary the termination of marriage might become, I learned from personal experience how devastating and frightening it is to face that reality when ending my marriage. Ironically, this may have been more pronounced for me, since I am an experienced lawyer who has worked on divorce cases as a lawyer. When I chose Chinn and Associates as the firm to help me deal with the legal process, I expected the utmost in professionalism, and my expectations were met. What I grew to learn during this process was that the firm would be wonderfully supportive for me on an emotional level as well. Again, since I am a lawyer, I was particularly moved and surprised by this aspect of Chinn care. Every person in the firm was accessible to me, listened to me and took my concerns seriously as we approached the process as a team striving for the optimal outcome. When asked by others of my opinion of the firm’s representation of me I always say “it was all about me” as I felt each person I came in contact with at Chinn truly did have my best interest at heart, from both a legal and personal standpoint. I have since referred others to the firm with no hesitation whatsoever.”

    “Dear Mark & Patricia, During the course of our careers we encounter varying personalities, degrees of behavior and intelligence, some we want to forget and others we cherish, when working with professionals in accomplishing the job at hand. The experiences I have had with Patricia and to a lesser extent with Mark during this process have convinced me that this particular engagement will without a doubt qualify as one to be cherished. It is a pleasure to work with individuals who approach problems with such a high level of dignity, professional behavior and expertise. I hope to work with you again in the future.”

    “Dear Mark, I don’t even know where to start! From the moment I called and spoke with Judy until the day you called me personally to tell me my divorce was final I knew I was in good hands. At a time in my life where everything was falling apart, especially my children, you and your team stepped in and took all the fear and worry away from a terrible situation. There was not a day that went by that someone from your firm didn’t either call or e-mail me just to see how things were going. Not to mention the letters, and cards that kept appearing in my mailbox. To someone going through a divorce in a town far away from their family, you have no idea how those things would actually get me through the day! I was such a nervous wreck the first day I came to your office, full of uncertainty and questions about what the future would hold for me and my children. The moment I opened the door and walked in a complete sense of peace fell over me, and never left! I will forever be indebted to you and the wonderful people at Chinn and Associates. Thanks for making not only my life better, but my childrens’ as well.”

    “Mark, I would imagine Chad and Matthew have reported to you that everything went fine yesterday. Took a little longer than I think they expected, but of course, I had no idea about a time frame going into the meeting. I appreciated Matthew’s interest and committment to represent my best interest yesterday. He was very concise and to the point, yet he made me feel at ease . I trusted his knowledge and my representation. I want to say a special word about Chad. He has been exceptional in his ability to work each one of my concerns and sort through even the smallest details. I also appreciate his patience and kindness through this entire process. He showed great empathy for my situation (even from our first meeting) all the while maintaining the highest professionalism. Yesterday was no exception. He was patient, followed through on each concern, and was continually concerned about my emotional well being during the process. I know the importance of having competent, caring people working around you and I know you are thankful to have him on your team. Thank you again for your committment to make this as smooth as it can be…if it can be.”

  • They were upfront of the cost and what it included so there were no surprises.
    Read More

    “Mark, Chinn and his associate, Thompson, were my second attorneys in my divorce after my first attorney botched my case and left me in a volatile/desperate position. Chinn is who I recommend to everyone now. He is incredible as an attorney and it was fascinating watching him work the attorney crowd in the hallways before, during, and after the trial. Just like the legal research done before trial, you have to know your judge and environment as well. He also sat in on a similar trial just prior to mine and was able to use the judge’s response he observed from that to help with a decision the judge was making on mine. I felt he truly cared not only about me and my future, but also the long term effect on my kids as well. True to his word, I was not “dismissed” after the divorce papers were signed, but they have guided me step by step through the aftermath of the process. As far as price, you get what you pay for. They were upfront of the cost and what it included so there were no surprises. I can’t say that about my prior attorney. I wish I had known about him first, but I am so blessed to have learned about him when I did. Because of Chinn and Associates, I found….. hope.”

    “Mark is not only a wonderful lawyer, but he is an honest, Christian man with strong principles. If you want things done the right way, this is who you go to. Divorce is a catastrophic event to a family, but having the right attorney can make it significantly easier. I can assure you there are many divorce attorneys in this town who only have the objective of draining you of your money and coming in with guns blazing. Mark comes in with guns blazing if necessary, but in a steady and Godly way that puts you and your families best interest first, not his own. You don’t find that much these days. He has 35 years of experience and listening to him is the best thing you’ll ever do. Also, the way he charges is modern and you won’t be surprised by your bill.”

    “My former wife and I are both happily divorced thanks to Mark Chinn. Although I was Mark’s client, he very clearly indicated to me that he was interested in helping me set and reach goals that were best for the entire family, not just for me. This strategy allowed for a very amicable settlement which left both parties financially and emotionally whole. We remain very good friends today, and our family recognizes and appreciates both of our efforts as well as the efforts of both attorneys to “do the right thing” by one another and not simply “win the case.” Although divorce is painful, Mark’s experience and expertise in family law proved invaluable throughout my experience. I’ve worked with many attorneys over the years for a variety of personal and business reasons but have never worked with one as competent, capable and caring as Mark.”

  • Nice underlying ethics, very strategic, and extremely strong if (or when) you need to fight.
    Read More

    “I had researched and met with several lawyers in Atlanta, GA. but I also needed a lawyer in Jackson, MS. After speaking with Mr. Chinn for approximately 30 minutes, he had already provided an extremely well thought out strategy that highlighted my options, how they related to each other, and the best starting point{s). This plan and route is something that no other lawyer or legal team was able to layout. This alone was an incredible difference. As I compare notes with others who had been through similar ordeals, I was amazed that no one has received the “big picture view”. In addition, even though this may be less important to a subset of people, with kids in the equation, I wanted to 1) take the high·road and 2) investigate the potential of working through the issues with my spouse. Without my pointing this out, this was where Mr Chinn started his options and he raised the positives of reconciling several times. I could not reconcile and he won in my favor. So … nice underlying ethics, very strategic, and extremely strong if (or when) you need to fight.”

  • I was extremely lucky to find Mark Chinn
    Read More

    “I was extremely lucky to find Mark Chinn (Chinn and Associates in Jackson, Mississippi), after suffering through eighteen months of ZERO progress with a “bargain lawyer”. During my initial meeting with Mr. Chinn, he spent all the time necessary to get a thorough understanding of my case. He described various ways to immediately begin seeking a favorable resolution. He also presented different pricing options, including the option to pay an all-inclusive fee upfront. That gave me substantial control over my legal expenses… I didn’t have to worry about the uncertainty of “pay as you go” pricing. Mr. Chinn’s staff is exceptional. Everyone is highly knowledgeable, yet attentive and responsive to the clients’ needs. The entire staff, including Mr. Chinn, are available at all hours to respond to unexpected or emergency developments. They kept me well informed of each and every aspect of my case. In summary, most of the time there are no “do-overs” or “second-chances” in court. Chinn and Associates achieved a successful outcome in my case, the very first time. That’s the REAL bargain!”
