LaToya T. Jeter

LaToya Jeter is a co-founding partner of Brown Bass & Jeter, PLLC. She has represented clients in a wide variety of personal injury cases, most notable premises liability, wrongful death, car accidents, and civil rights. She is also uniquely qualified to help individuals who are struggling financially and need to file bankruptcy.

At an early age, LaToya knew she wanted to be lawyer because she enjoyed being the voice for someone who could not be heard. As a child, she was frequently chosen by her friends and family to speak on their behalf when they simply did not know how to do so. As a lawyer, LaToya took her voice and passion to the courtroom and is described in the legal community as a fierce advocate for her clients.

LaToya prides herself on client satisfaction. She understands that the legal process is overwhelming for most clients, so she always takes the time to talk to her clients and gives them an honest assessment of where things stand.

LaToya represents the interests of her clients with passion and vigor, routinely appearing before both state and federal courts throughout the state. Through her client-centered approach to winning numerous cases and achieving favorable results for the families of injury victims, she has established herself in the legal community. Above all, she gets results through detail-oriented case work. LaToya will not allow her clients to be taken advantage of.

When your loved one has been injured or even killed at the hands of a negligent party, no one understands the need for answers or the need for justice like the victim’s family. LaToya understands that feeling firsthand, having lost a family member at the hands of a negligent party. While LaToya understands that there is no way to reverse the damage done by a third party, she works tirelessly to obtain justice for the victim and the family with the hopes of providing some closure to a horrific situation.

Prior to co-founding Brown Bass & Jeter, PLLC LaToya practiced at two large metro-area law firms, and prior to that, she clerked with the Honorable James E. Graves, Jr. on the Mississippi Supreme Court.

LaToya is actively involved in her community and enjoys mentoring youth. She is married and has two wonderful children.
