What Makes Attorney Carolyn McAlister Uniquely Qualified To Represent You?

At the McAlister Law Firm, LLC, I take the time to understand each distinctive matter presented to me by a client in need of assistance. I make certain that my clients understand their options and can make informed decisions regarding the progress of their case. I represent clients both legally and in a personal manner – whether it is a high stakes divorce, or a family estate plan.

I have Twenty-one (21) years experience in litigation. I have worked for two (2) years behind the scenes as a Staff Attorney for Judges, so I know and appreciate how the process works. With several years experience as an insurance defense attorney, I can better represent those clients who have a personal injury claim, because I know how insurance companies work and think. Since leaving the big law firms, I have worked as a General Litigation Attorney, which consists of the areas of Family Law (Divorce, Custody, and Adoptions), Criminal Defense, Wills and Estate Planning, and Appellate Law. During this time, I had my own law firm, “McAlister Law Firm”, for several years in Florence, Alabama. After leaving Florence, Alabama, I moved to South Mississippi, where I was the Regional Manager for Mississippi Center for Legal Services, Corporation for several years, where the focus of my practice was Family Law.

On a personal note, I live in Gulfport, Mississippi with my husband, Mikey Davis, and my son, James. We attend Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Biloxi, Mississippi. I also teach First Grade Catechism at CCD at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church every Sunday.

In 2019, I was selected by the National Family Law Attorneys, Inc. to receive the prestigious Top 10 Attorney Award for the state of Mississippi.
