When you have a trial by jury, you face a jury of your peers. This selected group of individuals will sit, listen to the story, the facts, and the evidence presented, and will finally render their decision. And the decision they make as a group will dictate the future course of your life. This means that your life, in no uncertain terms, depends on the decision that jury makes.
Not a day goes by that a client doesn’t ask me what is going to happen in a deposition. I give my clients the simple truth about the nature of a deposition: it is a glorified question and answer session. Unlike the violent, outburst-filled depositions you may have seen on TV, most real-life depositions are pleasant, non-combative exchanges of information between opposing parties in a legal case. But whether your case is one of personal injury or criminal defense, you need to have the right lawyer to defend you. There are things that can happen in a deposition which could create serious problems for your case in the long run.
The first step in criminal proceedings is called the arraignment. This is when you are brought in front of the court to hear the charges against you and enter a plea. As a defendant who has been falsely charged with a crime, this is your first chance to state your innocence in front of a judge. There are different procedures that happen depending on whether you are in state court or federal court, but once you have completed this first step, the real work of defending your case begins.
There is one big question criminal lawyers hear again and again from clients who have been arrested: Should I talk to the police? If you interviewed every respectable criminal defense attorney in the United States, you would likely hear the same answer from all of them: No, and absolutely not alone. No matter what you may believe or have heard to the contrary, it is never wise to talk to the police before speaking with your attorney.
State laws change with the times for a number of reasons. Technology, community values, and community awareness are just some of the reasons why we see law changes happening in Mississippi. As technology progresses, community values change, and state residents become more informed with relevant issues that impact the masses, state legislators need to ensure the existing laws are changed as needed and that new laws are enacted to protect people and their rights.
If you reside in Mississippi, it’s important to have a comprehensive understanding of the laws that impact your everyday life and the lives of those around you. In the coming year, you can expect changes regarding prohibition, medical marijuana, and the state flag. Let’s take a look at what’s likely to happen.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many unexpected challenges into the world. Other than the health challenges that many people have been facing, businesses have been facing economic hardships since many have been forced to close indefinitely. As a business owner, you might be using this time to plan your recovery from the pandemic.
Even with your emergency response and business continuity plans, you still might have trouble recovering financially through this time. If your business has been harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be interested in filing an insurance claim. Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law can help you if your insurance company denies your claim. Aside from a case, you’ll want to take steps to attempt to recover your business from this pandemic in other ways.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on the news, you’re likely aware that our state will embrace some new laws in 2020. While more laws will be implemented as the year progresses, there are definitive changes being made in January. For example, the Mississippi bar exam rules are changing. And while no official decisions have been made, the state is looking into the implications of county redistricting and the possibility of legalizing medical marijuana. Let’s take a look at what law changes are coming in 2020 to Mississippi.
When you’re on vacation, you might expect to spend more money than you planned, or to go out to eat more often than not. But the last thing you expect to happen is an accident that leaves you seriously injured. If you’re vacationing out of state, that could make your personal injury claim even trickier.
Laws can be changed and updated, and new ones can be introduced. As a citizen of Mississippi, it’s a good idea to stay on top of what’s happening so you know your rights and the laws of your state. Staying on top of possible law changes allows you to be an engaged citizen.
Corban Gunn, Attorney at Law closely follows possible changes to personal injury law. We pride ourselves in giving our clients the best representation possible. To do that, we have to be experts on the law. Since the law is subject to change, we’re always aware of the bills that could be passed into law that would affect our work and our clients.
Though we’re only a portion of the way through 2018, there have been a small handful of fairly major bills and acts that have passed in Mississippi during the year. Mississippi’s three-month legislative season, which just came to a close in March, was unfortunately rather lackluster in regard to the passing of new bills and laws, however.
Below you’ll find a brief summary of just a few of the major bills and acts that have passed in the first quarter of 2018:
15-Week Abortion Ban: As of March 2018, Mississippi almost became the state with the earliest abortion ban in the nation. Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1510 which prevents women from getting an abortion after the 15th week of their pregnancy. Almost immediately following this, a judge signed a temporary restraining order on the ban, however. The case and ban are awaiting litigation.

Corban represented my wife and I in a personal injury case. He briefed us at the very beginning as to what to expect and lived up to all of our expectationsHe proved to be expeditious and thorough throughout the whole process. We highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.
I highly recommend Corban Gunn. I am from Chicago and I while I was vacationing in Biloxi, I had an injury to my foot. I needed an attorney to assist with getting the medical bills paid, and a friend of mine, suggested I contact Corban Gunn.I contacted Corban and he was immediately responsive and opened a case on my behalf regarding my claim. Corban and his paralegal, updated me frequently with the case status. I never needed to worry about my case falling through the cracks. They were in full control, very attentive and it was a smooth process. I attended a deposition with Corban, and he was very polite, not just to me but opposing counsel too. It was a very comfortable setting, Corban spent time with me the day before prepping me with questions that may be asked by opposing counsel. The deposition was stress free and nothing to be nervous about.Corban was able to reach a fair settlement on my behalf.
Mr. Corban Gunn really helped my husband and family! He was very informative, easy to work with, and on top of everything! He kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Corban is an outstanding lawyer with extensive experience and knowledge of personal injury. Our case was complicated, but he was committed to our case and worked through the fine details. He helped us move forward from the accident and gave us a positive outcome.
I was home bound after a car accident and Mr. Gunn made a house call to meet with me. When another attorney turned me down, Mr. Gunn gave me hope when he agreed to represent me. It was a long process but Mr. Gunn and Brandi kept me apprised of my case. Down to earth, fair, fought for me when I was being unfairly blamed. Highly recommend their services.
Demonstrating true integrity and compassion for the circumstances, Mr. Gunn did an excellent job handling a complex and lengthy case for our family. He and his office staff are extremely professional, knowledgeable, diligent, and dedicated to obtaining optimum results, which he most certainly did for us. Definitely five plus stars! Thank you!
Excellent negotiator...had to turn to my own uninsured motor vehicle coverage when I was injured by an uninsured, impaired driver...my own insurance company ignored me...Corban did a good job...I did not get a lot because of the $25K limit on my coverage, and I had to repay Medicare...but what I got was better than nothing.
Mr Gunn is the best. My wife was hit by a Truck in August 2017 and we hired Mr Gunn to represent us. We were more then satisfied with the settlement Mr Gunn got us and the deep concern he had for my wife and me. I would recommend Mr Gunn to anyone that needs a great lawyer to represent them.
Mr. W. C. Gunn was the most helpful attorney and provided the best information to me in order to understand the knowledge about each step i should take. Unfortunately, does not represent the type of legal services i am needing, however, this very intelligent attorney went above and beyond to inform me of each step to take including a next day trial without any legal representing me yet and gave me step by step to inform judge. Then Mr Gunn, took more time out of his own day to locate and send me his personal reference in the correct attorney that would do me the best! To top it off, wow how genuine, he even followed up with me. Now that a true genuine and absolute amazing lawyer and friend who my case has nothing to benifit him. You honestly dont see that very much!!! Thank you, Mr Gunn!!
I asked Mr. Gunn to represent me in an aviation case. Though the case meandered along for quite a while due to the other party's actions - or lack of actions, Mr. Gunn represented my interests well, updated me of progress along the way, and was professional during all aspects of the case. I would hire Mr. Gunn again if the need were to arise.
