If you are from Mississippi You Want This DBA Attorney for Your Defense Base Act Case

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”

– Oscar Wilde



Why You Want the Turley and Mara Law Firm to Fight for You

You want my firm to be on your side for two simple reasons: We have the experience and we have the knowledge that is going to win your case.


We have been handling Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act cases since 1987. So when civilian contractors were bring injured overseas they were sent to us for representation as soon as they came home. This is because the Defense Base Act is an extension of the Longshore Act. It’s the same game and we’ve been playing this game the longest.

Now we are one of the top two Defense Base Act Law Firms in the world, representing thousands of severely injured workers from all over the world.


We know what is at stake here with your DBA case. If you don’t win you and your family’s future and financial security are both at stake. It isn’t important that you win your case, it is necessary.

Knowing this we have to make sure you are prepared, prepared to win with the truth. Something we have also learned from all of the folks we have represented in the past is that DBA cases are won with the complete and honest truth. It is extremely important that you tell the whole truth to everyone when it comes to your case, down to the tiniest details.

We have learned that this might be harder than it sounds. DBA insurance companies will dissect your case in order to find the smallest detail to trip you up and make you out to be a liar in front of the judge. They do it time and time again.

To avoid this you have to be prepared. You have to know your case backwards and front, you have to know the DBA, you have to know what the DBA insurance companies are going to do, you have to know how to talk to certain people related with your case, etc.

So, to make sure our clients are as prepared as possible we educate them on these things. Our book, Win Your Defense Base Act Case, is a great starting point so that you know can learn everything you need to know about the DBA law system in a couple of hours. You can order it here for FREE.

The Turley and Mara website is also a good start, especially if you’re just looking for the straight-forward basics of the DBA.


“That’s all great, but you’re in California how are you going to represent me all the way in Mississippi?”

Good question. The Defense Base Act is under federal law which means that anyone from anywhere in the United States can represent you. But hey, I get it.  You want someone you know and trust to be in charge of your DBA case and that person is going to be from your home state. How can you be as honest as possible if you don’t trust your lawyer?

Know this: You need the most experienced and skillful DBA lawyer to go up against those DBA insurance lawyers. They know what to do, they know how to beat your case. So you need to have someone on your side that is just as informed and just as confident as them. Or you will lose, I promise you that.

If you can find a DBA specialized lawyer with this kind of experience and skillset in Gulfport, Jackson, Southaven, Meridian or Biloxi then hire them. Right now. But if you can’t look out of your state and find the best. Make sure that the representation you hire is someone you can trust. Someone that will be honest with you even if things aren’t looking so bright. Someone that wants to win your case with the truth and will win it with integrity.
