Founded in 1982, the law firm of Owen, Galloway & Myers, 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
Attorneys Joe Sam Owen and Ben F. Galloway each have over 35 years of experience representing clients in the Gulf Coast region of Mississippi. Robert P. Myers, Jr., who became a partner in the firm in 2000, has 18 years of legal experience. All three partners have been honored by their peers with the distinction of a Martindale-Hubbell AV Rating,* which is uncommon if not unique among plaintiff firms in southeast Mississippi. Our attorneys are 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 practice areas 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 and product 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 and white collar 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.
