Top 40: Roxanne Case

If you were to ask Roxanne Case to provide a self-description in one word, the Jackson-born lawyer probably would choose “meticulous.”

An attorney and partner with Ridgeland law firm Wells Marble, Case’s practice involves the sometimes risky and always complicated area of worker’s compensation defense, including all matters before the Mississippi Workers’ Compensation Commission.

Even co-workers are amazed by how organized and well, meticulous, Case can be meeting her responsibilities to her clients.

“Roxanne always finds a way to cheat time and get more done in one day than most people get done in three or four days,” said Ford Bailey, a partner at Wells Marble. “She does all of this without sacrificing her husband and two sons or time for community service.

“Roxanne certainly represents the best of the profession.”

Though she received her undergraduate degree at Mississippi State University in engineering, Case always had designs on becoming an attorney. She attended the Mississippi College School of Law as a Herrin-Hess Scholar for three years before earning her juris doctorate in 1997. Selected as a 2010 Mid-South Super Lawyers “Rising Star,” the upbeat Case says she’s zealous in representing her clients based on strict ethical and moral principles.

“I have been fortunate to have developed a practice wherein I provide opinions to clients on facts, not what they want to hear,” she said. “Clients trust my work – judges trust my integrity.”

Moving her existing workers’ compensation to one of Mississippi’s oldest and established law firms has been a humbling experience, Case says.

“Wells Marble showed confidence in not only my legal capabilities but my leadership ability, as well,” she said. “The firm, the legal community and our clients continue to help make this practice proper.”

Case’s legal expertise isn’t limited to conference rooms and the courthouse. She also serves on the Madison Ridgeland Academy board of trustees and has chaired the school’s legal committee for the past two years.

“My involvement at MRA has allowed me to use my talents to benefit my children and their school,” said Case. “Being an attorney, I feel I must take the time to continue to be a presence in our children’s daily lives.”

A huge fan of Mississippi State athletics, Case enjoys attending Bulldogs sporting events in her leisure time.
