A little history…

Stone and Hayes was founded in 1947 by the late, Douglas C. Stone.  It has been serving individuals and businesses in Mississippi for over five decades.  Mr. Stone’s practice was a general practice with a special emphasis on representing the insurance industry and their insureds.  Since that time, the firm has evolved, but has continued its emphasis on insurance defense.  In addition, the firm now enjoys a practice related to real estate closing services for both individual and commercial transactions.

Jack H. Hayes, Jr., of Stone and Hayes, began the practice of law in 1980.  He joined with the late, Douglas C. Stone, in a firm that eventually became known as Stone and Hayes.

Mr. Hayes’ primary practice involves litigation matters in representing both corporations and the insurance industry.  He handles a variety of such cases, including construction litigation, insurance defense, corporate defense, professional malpractice defense, and general insurance defense.  He practices in the Circuit and County Courts throughout North Mississippi and in the Federal District Courts within the State of Mississippi.

In addition, the law firm of Stone and Hayes has an active real estate closing department.  The firm is an agent for The Security Title Guarantee Corporation of Baltimore.  The firm is also an approved attorney for many banks in Columbus, Mississippi and throughout North Mississippi.  As such, the firm is known for prompt and effective services, including title examination and closings.  These services are provided throughout the Golden Triangle region of North Mississippi, including Lowndes County, Clay County, Noxubee County and Monroe County.
