COVID-19 Update: How We Are Serving and Protecting Our Clients

We are closely tracking the rapidly evolving public health and community concerns related to the new coronavirus or COVID-19. Rest assured that we are taking all available steps to remain accessible to our clients as we continue to act in accordance with their best interests during this difficult time.

Please see below for answers to some frequently asked questions, and feel free to reach out to us any time at or 601-607-5055 for assistance with your legal matter.

Is your office currently open during normal business hours?

We are working normal business hours from a remote location. We are still available to discuss your case and assist you with questions or concerns. We can also meet with you via video conferencing such as Skype, Google Hangouts and Zoom.

When and how can I contact you?

You can still call us on our 601-607-5055 number, email us at, and or text us at 601-212-9724.

What video chat platforms do you offer for clients?

Google Hangouts, Zoom, and Skpye.

Are you accepting new clients?

Yes. We are still accepting clients for divorce , DUI, family law, and criminal defense in Madison, Rankin, Hinds, Holmes, Yazoo and Leake Counties. We are continuing to serve the residence of Mississippi in this time of need and are here to assist you when necessary.

How can I get updates regarding the status of my case or legal matter?

You can get updates on your case at any time. Just call or email for an update.

Are courts of law still open in my area?

Yes. Most courts are still open while they are taking safety precautions. In Mississippi we can still file pleadings in person and use MEC. However, most civil and criminal matters set for hearing have been temporarily reset and/or continued due to COVID-19 unless the relief sought involves an emergency. We anticipate that this will continue through April and/or May of 2020 depending on the circumstances. We are continuing to monitor this situation closely and will notify you if something occurs in your case.

Will my court date be rescheduled?

Some, but not all, hearings in your case may be continued due to COVID-19. Most common, a hearing in your case may be temporarily continued during this time unless the relief sought in the hearing involves an emergency. However, this does not preclude telephonic conferences set by any court to resolve a matter. Moreover, a judge can consider a civil or criminal motion in a case without oral argument or a court appearance. Some types of cases can even be settled and finalized without the need for the parties to appear in court. If your case is one of these, the current situation may have little impact on your case. You can contact our office for specific information relating to your case.

What if I can't come to court because I'm sick or quarantined?

If you are sick or quarantined, contact us and we will request that the matter is rescheduled or “continued”.

Will scheduled depositions, mediation, arbitration, or settlement negotiations occur as planned?

Most telephonic settlement negotiations can occur as planned. Scheduled depositions, mediation, and arbitrations may need to be reset due to COVID-19 and we will make this decision with the client on a case by case basis.

Again, please stay safe and feel free to reach out to us with questions at any time, and see the following links below for CDC, state, and/or local updates regarding public health orders, court operations, and other information.





Client Reviews
Devin handled my case with the attention and compassion you need when going through tough times in life. I always felt he had my back and fought for my best interests at all times throughout the ordeal. I would recommend Devin to anyone in need of an attorney. In fact, I already have! Keith C.
From the first time that I met Devin he was very friendly, courteous and passionate of being the Attorney that he would want serving him. He spent countless hours working to ensure that fair treatment was being delivered to me and my family. Very organized, timely, response to all my request. I had a very complicated case that extended longer than anticipated and he stayed on task, very optimistic, very driven for results and was able to deliver what I was seeking out for from the first meeting that I had with him. He never mislead me or promised me the world. He was very objective and realistic in what he felt he could deliver. I appreciate all that he did for me during this time and I will continue to use him for all of my future needs. If you family ever needs honorable, competent, caring representation in a case, then Devin Whitt is the Attorney you will be pleased with. Michael D.
Devin Whitt was very helpful and successful on achieving the desired results for my case! My case was over a year long, and Devin sought additional ways needed to solve my legal issues. He could’ve quit and said, “That’s the way it is”, but he continued to go to bat for me until he hit the HOMERUN. Even after the successful case, Devin called to check on me to ensure that I knew the additional steps needed to completely clear my name. Devin was prompt when returning phone calls. I have recommended Devin once and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone regardless of their legal issues. If you want to be successful in your case, don’t look any farther. Pick up the phone and call Devin! Immediately!! Parker R.
My experience with Mr. Whitt was positive from the first moment I consulted with him. I can't think Mr. Whitt enough for his help with my custody case. He was attentive, thorough, and helpful throughout a difficult time for me. He always kept me updated with the progress of my case and made me feel as if we were working together as a team. He was always available to me when I had questions pertaining to the matter, and he was always willing to take the extra time to make sure I understood everything in the process. I highly recommend Devin Whitt! Jennifer N.
Attorney Devin Whitt is awesome! He told me that he was going to do his best, and his best exceeded my expectations! For excellent representation, I highly recommend Attorney Whitt! Althea S.
Devin Whitt is absolutely the person you need to call when needing representation in a divorce case! He is the reason today that i have full custody of my 3 boys. Devin fought when nobody else gave me any hope. These days when many attorneys will concede children over to alcoholic and drug addicted mothers Devin said NO! He stood up and fought for me and my boys and we won. Thanks to Devin they are now in a stable home with me and their step mother, doing well in school and bright futures ahead. The alternative would have been living with an alcoholic and drug addicted mother and boyfriend. Thank you Devin for all you have done for me and my boys! Do not hesitate, CALL Devin Whitt today and be represented by the best!. David A.
