Gary Jones is a senior attorney in the Jackson office of the firm and previously served as Chair of the firm's Workers’ Compensation practice group for over 13 years.  He has been involved in the Workers’ Compensation practice for over 35 years and has served as a mediator in hundreds of cases over the past 15 years.

When asked about the practice of law, Gary says, “Wise counsel is what you get with Daniel Coker attorneys.  Our job is to tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear.  Dogmatism for the sake of dogmatism is not productive.  Instead, we seek effective, practical solutions to your litigation needs.”

Gary was named a Fellow of the Mississippi Bar Foundation and was inducted in July 2020 at the Foundation's Annual Meeting and Fellows Induction Ceremony held virtually.
