Ingram│Wilkinson got its start when Carroll H. Ingram began his private practice of law in 1967. For the first years of his practice, he was part of a Hattiesburg general litigation firm as an associate, and in 1975 he ventured out on his own to establish his own general practice law firm. He served in the Mississippi Senate during his early years of law practice, representing his home district for two consecutive terms. It was during this time in the Mississippi Senate that he forged an alliance and business relationship with then Lieutenant Governor Evelyn Gandy, Mississippi’s first female Lieutenant Governor. Upon Governor Gandy’s completion of her formal public service years, she returned to Hattiesburg in 1980 to join Mr. Ingram’s law practice. She remained with the firm until her death on December 23, 2007.
From the time that Mr. Ingram opened his own firm in 1975, the firm steadily grew over the next several years. At one point the firm employed 17 attorneys and a large support staff. Then, in 1990, Mr. Ingram had an opportunity to pursue groundbreaking telecommunications work in Central and Eastern Europe, specifically Budapest, Hungary. Upon completion of his work in Europe in 1994, he reorganized his law practice to handle major civil litigation in association with attorneys from across the nation. The goal of this association was to bring the skills and resources of other lawyers and firms to the legal team for the benefit of the client. In 1998 after Jennifer Ingram Wilkinson earned her Juris Doctorate Degree in Louisville, Kentucky, she returned to Mississippi to join Mr. Ingram’s practice, and the Ingram│Wilkinson partnership was born.
Today Ingram│Wilkinson is a civil litigation firm mostly limited to prosecuting major litigation claims in various fields of the law, such as catastrophic personal injury, medical negligence, pharmaceutical injury litigation, fraud, maritime, and business destruction. Ingram│Wilkinson is a Martindale Hubble AV rated firm, and enjoys a respected reputation among the members of the Mississippi Bar, American Bar, and the Federal and State Judiciary.

Starting a Lawsuit: Filing Papers — The first step in filing a lawsuit begins with a case consultation and evaluation with our personal injury attorneys, after which our firm will file the necessary paperwork in court. These pleadings include the complaint (or petition) which outlines the victim’s case against the defendant. A summons is then issued to the defendant, who is required to submit an answer. Our personal injury attorneys ensure that these complicated papers comply with all legal requirements, are correctly completed, and all deadlines are met.
Discovery: Fact finding and Investigation — During this methodical process, our personal injury attorneys will gather relevant information to support your lawsuit. This essential stage in the litigation process is where many claims are won or lost. At the firm of Ingram│Wilkinson, our personal injury attorneys meticulously research each client’s claim and prepare extensively for every case.
Resolution before Trial: Settlements — Many personal injury claims are resolved before ever reaching a courtroom through a negotiated settlement among the parties involved. In such settlements, the defendant agrees to compensate the victim for damages; in return, the plaintiff agrees to abandon any further legal action. Our personal injury attorneys carefully weigh the pros and cons of any settlement with the client and will advise the best course of action.
Trial — If a settlement cannot be reached, our personal injury attorneys will take your claim to trial. We will represent your case and allow a judge and/or jury to determine whether the defendant is liable for the injury, and therefore responsible for any losses you incurred as a result. If successful, the initial litigation process is complete upon payment of the judgment, unless the defendant appeals the verdict. If the verdict is appealed, our attorneys will be happy to discuss options with you concerning representation at the appellate level.
Most of our fees are contingent upon obtaining compensation on the client's behalf, which means, If we do not obtain a favorable verdict or settlement, we will not charge legal fees. Consultations with prospective clients or their attorneys are offered free of charge. If we take your case, we will handle all the investigations necessary, at no cost to you. If you would like our personal injury lawyers to evaluate your claim, contact our Hattiesburg office. Serving Hattiesburg, Jackson, Tupelo, Gulfport, and all of Mississippi, our personal injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
