Jay Foster Law
Jay Foster is a native of Biloxi, Mississippi and graduated from Biloxi High School. He attended undergraduate school at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Subsequently, he attended law school at Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, Mississippi. While in law school he interned with former Circuit Court Judge James E. Thomas. As an intern, he assisted Judge Thomas in preparation for multiple trials and motions ranging from Mississippi car wrecks to Mississippi residents injured on the job.
After graduating law school, Jay accepted a Judicial Clerkship with Justice James Roberts of the Mississippi Supreme Court. As a Judicial Clerk, he assisted Justice Roberts in numerous appeals involving all types of issues raised at the trial court level. After completing his clerkship with Justice Roberts, Jay accepted a Judicial Clerkship with Presiding Judge James E. Thomas on the Mississippi Court of Appeals. The experience on the Appellate Court as a Judicial Clerk was similar to the Supreme Court as countless issues raised at the trial court level were decided.
Subsequently, Jay was employed with various law firms in Mississippi which specialized in personal injury and insurance defense litigation. Jay has now established his own private law practice in Mississippi. He specializes in personal injury litigation, including wrecks involving 18 Wheelers, car wrecks, workers’ compensation, Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Injuries, dog bites, and nursing home injuries.
His hobbies include the New Orleans Saints, and yes, despite their sometimes poor play, Jay Foster remains a devoted New Orleans Saints fan. He is also a lifetime member of the United States Judo Association. If you are interested in participating in Judo, please call Jay Foster’s Office or Jim Hunt at 228-806-8125.
