Founding Attorney, Becky Mae Allen Farrell, has practiced law on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for 17 years. Her local roots run deep. Becky was raised in New Orleans and like so many others, she spent the weekends, summers and holidays at her family’s vacation home in Pearlington, MS. As a young mother, she and her young children moved to the Gulf Coast in 1996. Mrs. Farrell has been practicing law since 2001, and opened her firm in 2003. This has proven to be a valuable advantage to law firms outside of Mississippi seeking Mrs. Farrell for local counsel or co-counsel.

The firm practices general law and also handles pre-marital planning, divorce, guardianships/conservatorships, mental illness and alcohol and drug dependency commitments, post-conviction relief issues, estate planning, probate, muniment of title, and preparing advanced medical directives, wills, deeds, and other types of document drafting. We also represent small businesses, people with land boundary disputes, and students with bullying and other school related issues.
Becky Farrell is active in the legal community! Her professional organizations include the MS Bar Assc, the Hancock County Bar Assc, regular participation in a local Lawyers and Judges Support Group, and the National Trial Lawyers Assc. She is a fierce advocate for those in the profession struggling with depression.
