Wilkins Patterson launched as a new law firm specializing in litigation on January 1, 2013. Although we are a new firm, our partners have practiced together in Jackson, Mississippi for decades. The new firm was formed to strengthen our commitment to longstanding clients and to offer this renewed commitment to new clients throughout the state of Mississippi. Joseph T. Wilkins, III, is recognized as a leader in Mississippi in the areas of insurance defense and workers compensation, two areas of the law in which he has specialized since the 1970's. He co-founded the law firm of McCoy Wilkins which focused on these practice areas. Mr. Wilkins was joined by Leland Smith and Bill Patterson in 1985. Mr. Smith is a graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law, and Mr. Patterson received his law degree from Emory University. Mr. Smith and Mr. Patterson have been partners with Mr. Wilkins since the 1980's and have worked together representing insurance companies and corporations from around the country which were faced with litigation in Mississippi. Diane Pradat Pumphrey joined her partners in 1991 following a career as a registered nurse. Ms. Pradat Pumphrey's background has strengthened the firm's representation of health care providers in medical malpractice litigation and is a valuable resource in any case involving complex medical issues. The remaining partner with Wilkins Patterson is Bobby Stephenson. Mr. Stephenson has been licensed since 1997, and joined his partners' practice in 2004 after practicing with other defense firms in Mississippi.
