Suzanne L. Childress is a passionate attorney dedicated to helping Mississippians who have been injured as a result of an accident or another party’s negligence. She is located at Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz’s office in the heart of downtown Tupelo, Mississippi, serving the northern portion of the state. In 2004, Ms. Childress earned her Bachelor of Science and Business Administration with an emphasis in Management and Marketing from the University of Southern Mississippi. After graduation, she worked as a sales professional in the pharmaceutical industry and thereafter, decided to pursue her career in the legal field.

Ms. Childress earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. While in law school, she received the American Jurisprudence Award for Academic Excellence in Pre-Trial Practice. She also served as a member of the Dean’s Leadership Council and was chosen to compete in the National Health Law Transactional Competition in 2012 at Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois. In addition, she was also involved in the Student Health Law Association and the Elder Law Clinic, where she assisted elderly citizens in the community with estate planning matters. Prior to joining Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, Ms. Childress worked with another large law firm and in private practice. During this time, she focused on insurance bad faith, workers’ compensation, and medical malpractice. At Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz, she handles a variety of personal injury cases, including automobile accidents, premises liability, workers’ compensation, and medical malpractice.

Personal injury cases such as automobile accidents and trucking accidents are brought on a theory of negligence. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses arising from the injury. If this has happened to you, it is important to be vigilant in consulting with a skilled attorney specializing in personal injury. This is particularly vital since under Mississippi law, if a defendant is a governmental entity, the statute of limitations may be reduced to only one year from the date of incident. One of the biggest mistakes people can make is waiting until it is too late to assert their rights for recovery.

The atmosphere at NST is one that emphasizes communication and collaboration. With over 30 attorneys and over 100 support staff team members, NST has the resources needed to provide clients with the representation they need during some of the most trying times in their lives. Ms. Childress works diligently to recover the compensation her clients deserve. If you are in the Tupelo area and you or a loved one has been injured, Ms. Childress would be glad to meet with you for a free consultation to evaluate whether NST would be able to assist in seeking compensation for your case.

Ms. Childress is a member of the Mississippi Bar Association and is admitted to the United States District Courts for the Northern and Southern Districts of Mississippi and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. She is originally from Ridgeland, Mississippi, and currently resides in Oxford, Mississippi with her husband, Justin, and their two beloved West Highland terriers. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, exercising, volunteering, and spending time with her family and friends. She and her husband attend Orchard Oxford United Methodist Church.
