Below, you can learn about our history and what we have to offer as a law firm.


Mitchell McNutt & Sams lawyers approach every task we are asked to address by trying first to understand the concerns, the financial limitations and the ultimate goals and aspirations of our clients.

This dedication to client service is the reason Mitchell McNutt & Sams grew in our first hundred years from a sole practice in a small town into one of Mississippi’s largest and most highly respected law firms. We serve banks, manufacturers, health care providers, governments, insurance companies, developers, utilities, transportation systems and individuals in our region and throughout the United States. Our clients depend on us to help them in almost every area of the law. Our lawyers work in teams carefully selected to focus experience, knowledge and skill on the task at hand.  Whether the client is a Silicon Valley-based green-tech start-up, a comprehensive hospital system we have represented for three-quarters of a century or a teenage defendant in a car wreck case — whether we are closing a loan, probating your loved one’s estate or handling the formation of a business entity — our focus is the same:  meeting client needs by providing high quality legal services efficiently and with minimal disruption to the client.

During this period of rapid and dramatic change in the legal profession, Mitchell McNutt & Sams lawyers know that advancing the client’s interest is their most important work.



Mitchell, McNutt & Sams traces its origins to 1904 when Guy Mitchell began practicing law in Lee County, Mississippi. In the 1970’s, the firm enjoyed growth and expansion that has steadily continued through present day.
