Chancery Practice

Mississippi’s unique Chancery Court calls for counsel with substantial experience and reputations. Heidelberg Steinberger represents clients for routine and contested estates and conservatorships; as well as real estate litigation on behalf of title insurance companies, developers, and individuals.

This firm also has extensive experience in family and domestic law matters, especially adoptions and contested custody matters. Recognizing the delicate nature of such proceedings, the firm focuses on resolving such matters with skill and sensitivity, whether negotiating resolutions or litigating the merits.

Finally, Chancery Court, like in Delaware, is the home for almost any and every dispute regarding corporations, limited liability companies and other legal entities (see our “Commerical Litigation” page).

Our experence includes:

  • Serving as counsel for multi-million dollar estates.
  • Successfully representing clients in having the Mississippi Supreme Court overturn a Chancellor’s decision in a boundary line dispute.
  • Frequent appointments by Chancellors to serve as guardians ad litem for minors to represent their interests.
