The Story Of Our Beginning

Gilder & Howell, Attorneys PLLC, is a law firm which was founded in July 2000, by Jefferson D. Gilder and Jamie W. Howell Jr. Upon graduation from law school in 1988, Mr. Howell began practicing law at the Gilder Law Firm, which was founded and headed by Robert G. Gilder, the legendary Midsouth trial lawyer. Jefferson D. Gilder joined his father's firm in 1990, where he and Howell worked together for three years and were tutored by the master trial tactician, Robert Gilder.

In 1993, Mr. Howell left Gilder Law Firm to begin a solo practice while Jefferson D. Gilder stayed on as a partner for 10 years. In June 2000, the two were reunited when Jefferson D. Gilder joined the firm after the passing of his father.

Our Beliefs And Commitments

Today, we carry on the legal ideals, ethical priorities and strong work ethic laid down by Robert Gilder in every personal injury case, workers' compensation, or Social Security Disability case we handle.

We believe that there is something more important than political correctness, and that is moral correctness.

We believe that all constitutional and human rights are essential and of importance, which is why we strive to protect individuals and small businesses from those who might attempt to take advantage of them.

We believe our clients are always our top priority and that they always deserve the best counsel and resolution possible.

We believe in our justice system and that, in some cases, getting your case before a jury is the best way to ensure your injuries are assessed fairly and that you are getting the compensation you need to move on with your life.

We believe in treating you with respect — not like a second-class citizen or just another number. We're here to serve you, and we're pleased to do it.
