Marcie Fyke Baria – Attorney, Gulf Coast MS

My job is to help people who have been wronged.

My job is to help people and privately owned businesses who have been wronged. Sometimes the wrongdoer is a CEO who sexually harassed a co-worker or a trusted adult who abused a child. Other times, the wrongdoer may be an insurance company who refuses to pay a legitimate loss, or a builder or design professional responsible for defective construction, or a partner whose trying to take advantage of his other partners, or a professional who breached the trust of his clients. In my over 20 years of practice, I’ve helped hundreds of clients successfully resolve their legal disputes.

I grew up in Jackson in a large family. I have always been inspired to “make it better from within” and, for me, being a lawyer for people who have been wronged is the way to do that.

When I graduated from Ole Miss School of Law, I married my husband, David. In 2004, after 12 years of practicing in Jackson, we moved to Bay St. Louis on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Fourteen months later, Hurricane Katrina devastated the city and surrounding areas.

Like many coastal families, we lost everything during Katrina. All that remains of our family home is the concrete driveway leading to where our garage used to stand. Everything else is simply gone. That kind of devastation really changes your perspective in life. It has made me appreciate, even more, the most important thing in life…my family.

David and I have four children, Darden (deceased in 2005), Merritt, Bess and Max. Both Bess and Merritt play a lot of soccer and Max can’t wait until it’s his turn to hit all the sports fields.

I am admitted to practice in all Mississippi federal and state courts. I was recently appointed to the Mississippi Board of Bar Admissions. For detailed background information about me, please visit my profile at Martindale-Hubbell
