The City of Byram, MS is the newest city of Hinds County. Byram was officially incorporated in 2009 after a lengthy legal battle with the City of Jackson over annexation and incorporation. With approximately 11,500 residents, Byram rests comfortably to the south of Jackson, Mississippi. Byram has been referred to as a smaller suburb nestled to the west of the Pearl River, which ultimately feeds into the Mississippi River.
Between 2000 and 2010 the population of Byram grew by nearly 5,000 residents as citizens of Jackson and other surrounding communities made their way to a newly thriving area. Numerous local and national businesses make their home in Byram. The City of Byram sends its children to schools run by the Hinds County Public School District.
Byram is currently home to various small businesses, and if you have not driven through Byram in the last 6 months, you may not recognize parts of the city. Siwell Road is now the home to shopping centers, restaurants, and more neighborhoods than ever before. Byram continues its instant growth with new businesses expanding along Interstate 55, including Southpointe Drive.
The Byram Municipal Court, Byram Police Department, and other City Services are located at 5901 Terry Road, directly across from the Byram Baptist Church. The Honorable Dale Schwindaman sits as the presiding Municipal Court Judge in Byram. John Scanlon serves as the City Prosecutor. Byram's public defender is Coxwell & Associate's own Eric Brown.
In March of 2011 Eric Brown had the privilege of being the first attorney to represent a criminal defendant in the Byram Municipal Court. As a member of Coxwell & Associates, Eric is just one of the attorneys there who are absolutely dedicated to the practice of law. The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates consider the practice of law as a constant career and not just a 9 to 5 job. Each of the attorneys is a resident of Mississippi, and all are devoted and interested in helping each and every client that is accepted by the firm. Coxwell & Associates is not a general law practice. Each attorney has had a diverse career and over the years each attorney has developed areas of practice. Though the attorneys at Coxwell & Associates will not accept every case, they do take the time to assist each and every person who makes contact with the office. Coxwell & Associates has a reputation of being truthful to clients, even if that truth is not what a particular client wants to hear.
From Byram the easiest way to reach Coxwell & Associates is to get on Interstate 55 North, headed North. You will come into Jackson and take the High Street Exit. High Street is one of the two exits used by most people when they come to the Mississippi Fairgrounds and the State Fair. After taking the High Street Exit go to the left and continue up the hill on High Street until you come to State Street. Turn left, and begin looking to your left after only a few hundred feet. There you will see the Historic Clifton-Burwell House, the office of Coxwell & Associates. The yard of the office is typically heavily planted with seasonal flowers and there is a black and white sign out front. As you come to the Coxwell & Associates office turn left on College Street. You will be able to park in the rear of the office. The entrance to the law firm is in the rear. Go up the steps and ring the bell. Our receptionist will allow you to enter and let the attorney know you are present for the appointment. If this is your first appointment you will be asked to fill out a brief information sheet.
