What Others Say About Tannehill, Carmean & McKenzie
At Tannehill, Carmean & McKenzie, we maintain professional relationships and strive to sustain happy clients. Given the nature of some of our practice areas, not every situation can have a happy ending. However, we do work towards the best possible outcome for every situation. We also provide our clients with reasonable expectations and do everything possible to keep our clients informed.
Having a child in college, far away from home and needing an attorney, I was refereed to Rhea Tannehill. It didn’t take more than five minutes of conversation to realize I had made the absolute right decision. Rhea was very easy to talk to and NEVER, not once, was he judgmental. Instead, he embraced my child more like a relative than a client. He secured an outcome for us that will not leave a scar on the student’s record. I could go on and on about Rhea’s legal work, which was superb, but just as important, was his very easy going, very honest, “down to earth” attitude. I consider Rhea a good friend and a good man. If I were asked to give a recommendation for an attorney in the Oxford MS area, without hesitation, Rhea Tannehill would be #1 on my list. And to top it off, his staff was absolutely the most professional and kind I have ever come across.
Matt – my family and myself want to express our thanks to you and your staff for helping us complete the land sale. We really appreciate all you did to expedite the process in a professional and reassuring manner. Steven’s recommendation of you was spot on and we couldn’t be more pleased. Oxford seems like a totally different place than it did a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully this virus will subside soon and we can all resume our normal lives and enjoying all the great things that Oxford provides. Hotty Toddy! Go Rebs! & THANK YOU!
When I was facing a DUI charge in Oxford I really didn’t like the circumstances of the whole night. I was left with another bad taste in my mouth about the police. They had wrongfully charged me with DUI and I wasn’t drunk/high. A friend referred me to Jay and it was the best thing I could have done considering what I was facing. The first time I spoke with Jay I was immediately at ease about the situation. He explained himself very well and I trusted he knew what he was doing. Long story short the charges were dismissed. One thing I can say is that Jay is a man of his word.
Rhea Tannehill is the person to go to if your college student gets into some trouble. He has a personal approach that insures your child will understand the seriousness of his situation. My son truly grew from his meeting with Mr. Tannehill. I am very grateful for the time he took with us. Mr. Tannehill was able to get my sons charges expunged. This mom is forever thankful. I highly recommend Rhea Tannehill.
Absolutely amazing! If you happen to need a firm, this is the one that you want. Jay was incredibly professional and went above and beyond for me. In my case I was able to not stress as much as I have in the past with other firms. I really did not have to worry about anything. Worth every penny for the peace of mind and outcome I received. Best in Oxford for sure!
There are no words to describe the gratitude I feel for Jay Carmean and his team. My son was in serious trouble and his bright future at stake. Jay worked with us long distance to achieve what I feel to be the best possible outcome we realistically could hope for. What I appreciate most about Carmean is that he gave a lot of thought to his strategy for providing the best possible representation of my son. He was up front about expectations and did not make any false promises. He invested his energy into helping my son and sacrificed time with his own family to do so. He really listened and showed a lot of compassion for our family. Jay maximized his relationships and reputation to create opportunities to defend my son as a good person who made a mistake during a heart-wrenching time in a young mans life. My son lost his grandfather and great-grandmother the same week his parents got divorced and moved out of the only family home he had ever known. He had just purchased a used car (which was seized) with hard-earned dishwashing money and drove to Mississippi on Spring break to get a way from all of the loss at home. Unfortunately he brought with him marijuana and was pulled over after driving 13 hours straight. Charged with a non-expungable felony with intent, he ended up with a reduction in the felony and 1 year in a prison rehab. My son does not deserve to be in jail 650 miles away from home, but the charges he was facing were life-wrecking and Jay helped turned an absolute nightmare into a bad dream. The Mississippi system is vastly different than Michigan and Jay did a great job navigating us through the lengthy process. Now that my son is behind bars, Jay is still there for me and my son. I just received my son’s tennis shoes in the mail after Jay went to the jail to retrieve them. I asked if he can take him some earplugs to help give him some basic comfort against belligerent cell mates who blare the television and yell constantly. He said of course. For a mother to be separated from her beloved son like this, it is comforting to have lawyer who goes above and beyond. Jay Carmean is my hero. Someone needs to get that man a cape!
Rhea Tannehill was hired to represent my daughter concerning DUI charges. Rhea is very knowledgeable and professional. He handled our case with great respect. High regards go to his Paralegal, Angie Allen. She helped us navigate through a most difficult time and was always available. Angie stayed on top of our case through the end. We truly appreciate Rhea and Angie for getting this unfortunate incident resolved.
It was over a year ago that we were highly recommended to two specific law firms that are both based in Mississippi. After our research and direct dialog, we proceeded forward with this firm with NO REGRETS AT ALL. It’s important to note the immediate responsiveness from this team to the issues of our specific situation, the professionalism that was needed and completely exemplified by the parties of this law firm, respecting the privacy/delicate nature of this case, the integrity of this firms commitment to the status/updates by email correspondence, necessary phone calls, discussion of options/decisions related – all of these communications and actions were far more than satisfactory…and the SUCCESSFUL RESULTS of our case FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. We would highly recommend this firm, our attorney Jay Carmean, and his paralegal Tiffany Webb – they clearly know how to WORK WITH CLIENTS throughout the process, NOT AGAINST THEM!
I have been working with Jay Carmean for about two years now. He assisted a close family member. I truly cannot say enough incredible things about this man and the service he provides. First, he wants to make 100% sure that his clients understand everything and that there are no questions that go unanswered. Throughout the process of the court proceedings, he walks you through every single possible outcome and offers his best advice. He is obviously very well versed in his job and offered incredible representation. He managed to get an incredible outcome in this situation. What is the most amazing part of the whole process is that even a year after Jay went to court and represented us in this case, we still email and call him and EVERY single time, he emails right back or calls right back. This type of service is top notch and more than appreciated! If you need law services in the Oxford area, TRUST ME, Jay Carmean and his firm is the ONLY option! The best I have ever dealt with! Thank you Jay for ALL that you do and for truly CARING about your clients!
I learned about Tannehill, Carmean & Carmean from another one of their clients. Mr. Carmean was very helpful explaining all the details of my case and kept me updated as necessary. I was very satisfied with the ability to get in touch with him at any time. I was extremely happy with the results of my case. He did a great job and is a good people person.
Thank God For Jay Carmean! Excellent, Honest, Compassionate Attorney. When faced with an extremely difficult situation, our son found himself facing serious legal issues. As parents of a student in Oxford, we were in need of a defense attorney to navigate the arduous, complex court system in Mississippi. Thank God we were given the contact information of Tannehill, Carmean & Mckenzie. Jay Carmean, specifically, took a direct, completely informative approach with our son. From our very first conversation, his straight forward, honest demeanor was an absolute God Send. The charges were quickly dismissed and the outcome was the best case scenario. Our heartfelt appreciation and prayers of gratitude to Jay, his partners, and his compassionate staff. If you are looking for legal representation…. Do Not hesitate to retain Jay Carmean. He will exceed ALL of your Expectations.
I am from New Orleans and needed legal advice in Oxford for some undeserved tickets. I asked two people in New Orleans who they would contact in the Oxford area, and they both said Tannehill, Carmean & McKenzie Law Firm. Now I see why!! Jay Carmean was fabulous to work with and got the tickets dismissed. He kept me in the loop the whole time and answered my emails and phone calls immediately. It turned out to be a painless experience and I highly recommend Jay!!
I found out the hard way that there had been an outstanding warrant for my arrest for a violation I thought had been taken care of a couple years prior that lead to me being held in jail. I contacted Jay regarding my predicament and within a few hours, I could post bail and start the process of rectifying the situation. I was very scared and confused about the situation and process and possible repercussions. Jay knew this and in his office, he explained everything and answered every question to the point where I could finally relax a little. He then explained what he was going to do and within a day, he notified me of what he did (phone calls and paperwork), what I had to do and, helped me to be cleared of most of the charges. His upfront approach of interacting with me (as well as other clients of his I’ve spoken with) and his professionalism, let alone his overall knowledge of the law, made a horrifying situation manageable and I can never thank him enough.
Matt – My wife, Andrea Jones, and I attended a mortgage closing on July 26, 2016. The process could not have gone more smoothly. Everyone at TC&M exuded professionalism and y’all provided a “down home” and comfortable atmosphere. Thanks so much.
I hired Jay in a panic after being threatened with what were in my opinion bogus charges. It was the best decision I could have made. Jay was so sympathetic to my situation and kept his word that he would make the whole thing go away before charges were even filed. He was absolutely wonderful, and I could not recommend him more highly. Jay was a complete professional, treated me with respect, listened to what I wanted, and acted accordingly. Even before everything was resolved, he was enormously reassuring in assuaging the panic and fear I felt at being in this situation. I’m not from the south and was terrified of both the charges and of being caught up in an unfamiliar legal system. Jay is not only an excellent lawyer, he is also a very well-connected local who left me completely reassured that he was doing everything in his power to resolve my situation satisfactorily. His rates were fair and reasonable and he explained them to us thoroughly. My husband and I will be recommending Jay to any of our friends and colleagues who ever need a lawyer. I would particularly recommend him if you’re not from the south and want someone local on your side, but to anyone who needs a lawyer, he is worth every penny and then some.
