Gerald Gaggini 
Attorney at Law

 Always putting the client's interests first.

Business Formation 
Which is better?  A corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or simple sole proprietorship?  The legal form of your business makes a difference in the taxes you pay and your exposure to other potential liabilities.  I can help you select the business structure that best fits your needs and future plans.  
Business Planning
What are your plans for the future? Do you have children who will run your business some day?  Do you plan to grow through acquisition of other companies? I have successgully guided many through these processes.  It makes sense to hire professionals with experience. 
Experience you can trust
Experienced legal counsel you can trust.   
Gerald (Jerry) Gaggini -
After graduating with honors (cum laude) from Mississippi College School of Law, Mr. Gaggini began practicing law and has successfully defended, represented, or otherwise counseled many a variety of clients.  Over the years his practice areas have included significant litigation experience in Mississippi's county and circuit courts.  Mr. Gaggini has been retained by various insurors to defend their insureds and has served as Moller counsel. 
Healthcare Experience
In 2007, when Belhaven University began its degree program in healthcare administration it called on Mr. Gaggini to set up the coursework and teach healthcare law and ethics.  Since then he has taught hundreds of students in Belhaven's online program.  Additionally, Mr. Gaggini teaches healthcare policy and law at the doctoral level at A.T. Still University (School of Osteopathic Medicine).
Potential lawsuits can come from employees, customers, franchise relations, and other claimants.  When you need effective representation in any of these areas I am prepared to vigorously defend your interests.
Conflicts Counsel

In the course of a lawsuit, a conflict of interest may arise between defendants or between a defendant and his or her employer.  In such cases, under Mississippi law, the insurer is required to inform the defendant, allow the defendant to select his or her own attorney and pay the bill.  Mr. Gaggini can provide such counsel, as needed.

“…Freedom of religion; freedom of the press, and freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus, and trial by juries impartially selected. These principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation. The wisdom of our sages and the blood of our heros have been devoted to their attainment. They should be the creed of our political faith.”
– Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address (1801)
