Owen & Owen: A Premier Litigation Firm In Southern Mississippi

A Lawyer is a representative of clients, an officer
of the legal system, and a public citizen having special
responsibility for the quality of justice.
— from Preamble: A Lawyer’s Responsibilities


Founded in 1982, the law firm of Owen & Galloway, has built an outstanding reputation for legal excellence, dedicated client service and high ethical standards, both among our peers in the profession and throughout our home community of Gulfport, Mississippi.

As a full-service law firm, our southern Mississippi lawyers represent clients of all incomes, ranging from individuals to large corporations such as Georgia-Pacific and Chiquita International.

A Partnership Committed To Legal Excellence

Attorney Joe Sam Owen has over 40 years of experience representing clients in the Gulf Coast region of Mississippi. He has been honored by his peers with the distinction of a Martindale-Hubbell AV Rating,* which is uncommon if not unique among plaintiff firms in southeast Mississippi. He is routinely listed in Who’s Who and Best Lawyers in America in the areas of personal injury and medical malpractice.

Many of our cases are referred to us from other attorneys who are familiar with our body of work and professionalism. Former clients, too, have honored us by frequently referring their friends, family and neighbors in need of quality legal counsel.

Our areas of practice cover a broad and diverse range of legal fields. The majority of our practice is devoted to litigation and appeals, with a substantial focus in personal injury cases involving medical negligence, auto accidents and products liability. In the past few years we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of hurricane-related lawsuits, including bad faith insurance denials and negligence claims stemming from hurricane clean-up injuries. We also practice in contract law, probate disputes, white collar criminal defense and DUI criminal defense.

Our Services Are Available To Other Law Firms

In recognition of our integrity, legal acumen and demonstrated trial advocacy, our attorneys are frequently sought as co-counsel or local counsel in litigation and appellate work, and we welcome such inquiries or case referrals from attorneys statewide or beyond Mississippi.
