About this Firm

Carr Allison is one of the fastest growing firms in the Southeast. Why? Our clients tell us the fact that we have lawyers with a lifetime of ties in the seven cities in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi where our offices are located is the primary reason they come to us for legal problems in those areas. In Mississippi, we provide litigation services to national clients in the southern part of Mississippi from our office in Gulfport.

When clients face litigation exposure in Mississippi they often hear the horror stories involving the imposition of punitive damages. We like to think we “wrote the book” on the subject of punitive damages in Mississippi.

Senior partner Doug Bagwell has been very active in the bench and bar community of the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and has tried more than 100 cases to a conclusion.

With the resources of more than 150 lawyers in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi behind it, the Carr Allison office in Gulfport, Mississippi stands ready to serve the national and international client faced with legal exposure in southern Mississippi.
