Jackson made its name as a railroad depot during the Civil War. Fittingly, one its most well known residents also made his name thanks to train travel. Casey Jones, the train engineer immortalized in famous rock & roll songs bearing his name, heroically sacrificed his own life to avoid a collision with another train stalled on the tracks.
Jackson lawyers can assist you in criminal law, personal injury law, bankruptcy, wills and trusts, and any other legal issue you may have. Attorneys in Jackson are familiar with courts in the 26th Judicial District. Within Jackson, attorneys practice in the city’s Circuit Court and its Chancery Court. Due to Jackson’s relatively close proximity to the city of Memphis, many Memphis lawyers will not hesitate to refer a case to a Jackson attorney for the client’s convenience if that case is being tried in Jackson and not Memphis.
Jackson’s Chancery Court and its statewide counterparts are unique. Traditionally, Chancery Courts were those courts which only heard cases in equity, or cases where there was no money involved. Modern United States court systems have almost done away with these courts, instead opting to include equity cases in regular civil court houses. Tennessee, however, maintains this distinction with its Chancery Court.
