Experience with practical insight sets my law practice apart from others. I have been practicing for more than 35 years and I am rated AV® PREEMINENT™ through Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ For Ethical Standards and Legal Ability™. I was selected by the Mississippi Business Journal as one of Mississippi’s 50 Leading Attorneys for 2010.

My practice is limited to specific areas. I handle real estate sales and loans and I help homeowners acquire their first home. I handle all types of real estate litigation involving commercial real estate and residential real estate, for example:

  • Boundary line disputes
  • Real estate contract disputes
  • Real estate commission disputes
  • Zoning changes
  • Partitions of real property
  • Quiet title suits
  • Suits to remedy the defective construction of a home

I also help administer estates and conservatorships. I advise families on estate planning and business succession. I handle court cases in all these same areas including will contests and trust litigation.

If you are in the market to buy or sell commercial or residential real estate, it is important that you take measures to protect your interests. Making yourself aware of your rights and obligations in both buy and sale agreements is the first step, which can be made easier with the help of a knowledgeable Jackson real estate attorney. At Shows Law Firm PLLC, we can help guide you towards making the best real estate decisions.

Commercial Real Estate

Any commercial real estate transaction is a major investment, therefore it is important that you do everything you can to protect yourself and your finances. At Shows Law Firm PLLC, our Jackson commercial real estate lawyers represent a wide range of clients throughout Mississippi. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, or negotiate a commercial lease, we can give you the sound advice and guidance you need.

Our knowledge in local real estate laws, regulations, and development can only prove to benefit your investments and sales. We know which real estate locations are seeing an increase in development, how local contractors work, and how to successfully handle very visible, high-profile commercial real estate projects.

The size of our firm and the experience of our legal team allows us to provide you with the dedicated personal service you deserve. Our legal team has the experience and resources to handle commercial real estate litigation should disputes arise.

Residential Real Estate

Purchasing a new home or selling your home is a big step and a house for you and your family is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. There are many complex laws and important elements to consider when you are buying or selling a home, or when contracting to build your home. Our experienced Jackson real estate lawyers at Shows Law Firm PLLC can work with you to make sure that your investment is protected.

At our firm, we have more than 70 years of experience helping homeowners and buyers to avoid common pitfalls that can come with residential real estate sales and purchases. If you are interested in buying a new home or selling your current home, we can help you through the process. Our top priority is to ensure your best interests are considered and that any potential grounds for disputes are handled before they require litigation.

At Shows Law Firm, we represent real people with real problems. We form personal relationships with our clients, some of whom we have worked with for more than thirty-five years. Each relationship is built on a foundation of trust and getting their legal matters handled in a timely manner.

Our clients know they have a place to turn for all their real estate, estate planning, and family law concerns. Our divorce attorneys have more than 70 years of combined legal experience and are ready to put our knowledge and skills to work on your behalf. Practicing since 1970, Attorney John Howard Shows founded his law firm in 1996.

When it comes to finding the right legal counsel, the most common complaint from people is that their lawyer does not communicate with them. At Shows Law Firm PLLC our goal is regular, consistent communication. We work as hard as we can for our clients and stay in constant contact with them.

From families to growing businesses, both here in Jackson and throughout Mississippi, our attorneys represent a diverse set of clients with a wide range of legal concerns. Whether you are going through a divorce, selling your house, or developing an estate plan, you need someone you trust to represent you. We represent people, not big businesses. We will always have your best interests at heart. From the moment you walk into our office, you will have our undivided attention. By providing straight and honest answers, you will know exactly what to expect from your case.

You do not need to go through a real estate agency to sell your home or to buy a new one. If you are interested in a home that is for sale by owner, our Jackson residential real estate attorneys can help you through every step in the process. Whether you need to facilitate a title transfer or you are involved in a dispute, we can help you with all your residential real estate needs.
