Most state law claims against Mississippi governmental bodies must be brought under the Mississippi Tort Claims Action (“MTCA”), which codifies the common law principle of governmental immunity and provides a limited waiver of that immunity.  Daniel Coker was at the forefront of litigating MTCA cases from the inception of Tort Claims Act in the early 1990’s, and the positive results for our clients continues through the present. Daniel Coker also has experience defending clients in claims filed under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.  Our clients include:

  • Correctional Facilities
  • Counties
  • Development Authorities
  • Law Enforcement Agencies
  • Municipalities
  • School Districts
  • State of Mississippi
  • State Agencies

We represent the interests of governmental entities throughout the state of Mississippi.
