Attorney John C. Leggett has been practicing law for 24 years, since receiving his Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law in 1990. After being in private practice for many years, John was unanimously appointed by the Superior Court Judges of the Cherokee Judicial District to fill the unexpired term of the late Chief Magistrate Judge. At the end of that term in the fall of 2012, John joined with Attorney Barry Benton in anticipation of Mr. Benton’s imminent retirement and John’s return to private practice. John C.

In addition, the firm’s probate practice includes representation of estates, establishment of guardianships, and various related matters.
