Attorney Arthur Calderón stumbled into criminal defense and refers to himself as “the accidental criminal defense lawyer.” In his early practice, he thought he'd just represent companies. However, he had the opportunity to move to Mississippi and took up criminal defense cases to fight for individuals in court. During his first case, he was eager to get inside the courtroom, talk with the jury, and get a good result that would affect his client's life. He soon found that there was no better feeling and hasn’t looked back since.

Having founded Calderón Law in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, Attorney Calderón defend clients from a wide range of charges including felony and misdemeanor offenses ranging from DUI and drug crimes to capital murder. He also handles personal injury matters including car and truck accidents and workers’ compensation cases.

Attorney Arthur Calderón is proud of every case that he works on. There are not many criminal defense lawyers in Bolivar County and he is proud to provide the empathy, accessibility, dedication, and experience his clients need.
