A LEGAL LEGACY — Vicksburg’s Dabney Keeps Family Name Alive at Oldest Law Firm in State


There has been a Dabney law firm in Mississippi since before the Civil War. So not only does Dabney & Dabney lay claim to being the oldest law firm in the state, at 90 years old, Lucius Bryan Dabney Jr. is also likely the longest practicing attorney in the state having been licensed to practice law since 1949 — a total of 67 years. Dabney still goes into the office every weekday and on Saturdays, when necessary.
