Who We Are 2017-09-01T14:53:51+00:00

D. Joseph Damiens, III, JD, LL.M.

I grew up in Madison, Mississippi, son of a financial planner and grandson to two war veterans. After attending Mississippi State University for my undergraduate studies in finance, I chose to further my education at Mississippi College School of Law.  Upon graduation from law school, I attended the University of Alabama School of Law to obtain an LL.M. in Taxation.  I advised clients on issues varying from estate planning, income & estate tax planning, acquisitions and sales of businesses, Medicaid planning, and VA pension planning.

I am happily married to my wife, Emily, and we are expecting our first child in November.
