Notable practitioners

David Marchetti offers high net worth individuals assistance with trust and estate planning, and is especially well known among sources for his ability to handle contentious matters. "I think his core strength is that he not only does trusts and estates planning, but he will do trial work. So if a matter maybe turns into a dispute, he can handle this as well. This is unique in this field. He's a tough negotiator for the clients," a commentator says. "I would refer client work to him," says another, explaining: "He is a fierce advocate for his clients and I absolutely mean this as a compliment. His demeanour is refreshing in this field. I love to work with him. He comes at things with a different perspective and it's excellent. I have sent him work and my clients have always been happy. I think a lot of him."

James Young is described by sources as having a "good reputation" in Mississippi. He advises on estate planning and probate, as well as business succession plans and elder law matters. "I think he has years and years of experience," says a source, who adds: "He's very well respected and has a great client base. Clients love to work with him."
