Firm Summary

Injured persons who are under financial hardship due to an injury caused by another person or business may have a case to obtain financial compensation for their injuries. The insurance company, however, is not always interested in providing personal injury victims with sufficient money to cover all expenses from the accident, attempting to minimize how much they pay to avoid reducing their profits. If you’ve been injured in Gulfport or Biloxi, ensure you have a local, experienced personal injury attorney on your case. Your attorney will help you get the compensation you need to cover medical expenses and time out of work. There are no better attorneys at work than Wetzel Law Firm to help you get back on your feet with the medical care you need. ​

The Wetzel Law Firm was founded in 1979 by Jim Wetzel. He created the firm to help the community he grew up in and to help represent those who suffered injuries because of another person or a business. In 2012, his son, Garner Wetzel, joined the firm as well. Father and son attorneys-at-law now work hard to help those who have suffered from any of the many different types of personal injuries in Gulfport and Biloxi.

A 1979 graduate of the Mississippi College School of Law, Jim Wetzel decided to open his own law firm so he could serve his community. His goal was to help those who were wronged and who needed assistance obtaining financial compensation for their injuries. Mr. Wetzel has been named in the top 100 trial lawyers in Mississippi along with the top 100 litigation lawyers in Mississippi and has been recognized with other honors as well. He has spent 37 years as an active trial litigator and has focused primarily in state and federal courts for Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama.
