John M. Colette is one of the most well-respected criminal defense lawyers in Mississippi. One reason is because Mr. Colette has “real” courtroom experience, gained from trying several cases start to finish, in both State and Federal court. Few criminal defense lawyers can boast a level of knowledge, skill and actual trial work similar to Mr. Colette’s. Because of his experience, he has represented other lawyers and even judges under investigation.
As a former employee at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Mississippi, Mr. Colette worked directly under the Chief of the Criminal Division. As part of his responsibilities, Mr. Colette consulted with the Mississippi State Office of the Attorney General in helping put together the state version of the Federal RICO laws.

That knowledge and experience now helps Mr. Colette give our clients the best possible representation and defense.
