Back in the day, a small-town lawyer was the person who handled all your legal needs. Whatever challenge you faced, you could always call your attorney for help.
I'm attorney Gene Barton. I think that's the way legal representation should be, so that's what I have been providing to my clients in the Tupelo area for more than 35 years. My law firm handles a wide range of legal issues so my clients don't have to go to other lawyers they don't know or trust. They can come to me, knowing they won't be judged and that all their legal needs can be met. When you are my client, I will stand by you no matter what.
I am the attorney who truly cares about my clients.

Fighting For Justice | Fighting For You
In all areas of my legal practice*, I am a bulldog, fighting for you and fighting for justice. I handle cases involving:
- Personal injury
- Criminal defense
- Family law
- Additional areas, including bankruptcy and disability claims
I Can Represent You In Any Trial Court In Mississippi
I am admitted to practice and represent clients in every state and federal court in Mississippi. I am admitted to practice in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and I am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
My slogan is never give up. I sued a bank for wrongful repossession of a car in the Tupelo area. The jury found the bank guilty and ordered it to pay. The local judge threw out the jury's decision. I fought the case all the way to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court reinstated the jury award. (Black v. Peoples Bank and Trust Co.)
