​The Experience To Help

For over 30 years, I have helped attorneys, individuals, businesses, professionals, and insurers with claims analysis and processing, litigation, and as a Mediator and Arbitrator.

At my law office, Philip W. Gaines, Attorney at Law, a key tenet for my practice is that knowing and preparing for what is most likely to occur at trial is also one of the best ways to get a case fairly resolved prior to trial.

Vigorous and reasonable advocacy, coupled with the knowledge and respect that comes with three decades of trial and claim experience, allows me to protect your legal interests and achieve your goals in a timely and cost-effective manner.

I work closely with each client to understand their objectives, concerns, and priorities, and I have the experience and creativity to know how to timely move to the resolution of clients’ disputes with your interests in mind.

Skill, Knowledge, And Respect Mean Effective Litigation And Claim Results

My skills, reputation, and knowledge are known throughout Mississippi. I try cases and am known for doing so effectively. I have considerable expertise when dealing with the minefields of insurance claim processing and litigation.

I have been hired by and litigated against many of Mississippi’s best attorneys and served as counsel and as an expert for a diverse group of clients, from disempowered individuals to multi-billion dollar companies.

I know the varied nuances and particularities of Mississippi’s State and Federal Courts, and I know how to present your case in the most effective manner. The respect I have gained in my field also means that your case is negotiated, prior to or during litigation, from a position of strength and reasonableness.

More Than Three Decades In Alternative Dispute Resolution

I have been an advocate and leader in the field of Mediation since the mid-1980’s. From its initial academic context, to its adoption for use for resolving insurance claims, to its current status as an integral part of Mississippi litigation, I have been involved as an educator, advocate, trainer, and effective neutral.

Because of my experience and insight, I am also frequently retained by attorneys and their clients to provide independent analysis and evaluation of disputed claims that will be presented in either formal litigation or ADR settings. Those cases vary from summary analyses to fuller and more complex mock presentations and evaluations.
