Rocky Wilkins (Morgan & Morgan)

Home / People / Best Personal Injury Attorney / Rocky Wilkins (Morgan & Morgan)


Law is in Rocky Wilkins’ blood. His father, Samuel Wilkins, was a well-known criminal-defense attorney in Jackson. Wilkins, like most little boys, grew up following his father everywhere he went. From getting his coffee as a child, driving him to the courthouse as a teenager, carrying his briefcase as a college student, and trying several high profile murder cases with him after earning his law degree, those early days solidified Wilkins path in the field of law.

“I used to follow my dad over to the Hinds County Courthouse to try cases when I was a little kid,” Wilkins says. “That’s really all I’ve ever wanted to do in my life is to be a trial lawyer.”

After running his own firm for nearly 15 years, he joined Morgan and Morgan in May of 2017 as the trial counsel for the state of Mississippi and became managing partner later the same year. In his role, he participates in every case that goes to trial from the Jackson office.

Wilkins says he decided to move out of the realm of criminal defense into an area where he feels he can make a larger impact in his community.

“For me, it was more about helping people and having a bigger impact on the community here in Jackson and here in Hinds County. To help somebody put their life back together is probably the most important part of my job because I always think about what I would want in a lawyer if I were in their shoes.” – Torsheta Jackson
