About Hernando, Mississippi

Home of the Kittell Law Firm

Out of all the cities and towns in Mississippi, the Kittell Law Firm chose Hernando as the location to open its law practice in 2012.  Known as "Mississippi's Front Porch", Hernando was chosen as the 79th best place to live in America by CNN/Money Magazine in 2011 in its list of "100 Best Places to Live".  Hernando has lived up to that billing as the home of the Kittell Law Firm.  

Hernando is the county seat of Desoto County and boasts one of the most beautiful courthouses in Mississippi.  Desoto County is located just across the state line from Memphis, Tennessee and is the second most populous county in the Memphis metro area.  The historic Desoto County Courthouse is located in the Hernando town square.

Hernando is named after the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, who discovered the Mississippi River.  Hernando is centrally located in Desoto County at the intersections of Interstate 55, Interstate 69 and Highway 51.

Apparently, others agree with the Kittell Law Firm's high opinion of Hernando, as the population of Hernando grew by 107% from 2000 to 2010.  Hernando was featured in CNN's Great American Small Town series and has won many honors, including being a Main Street Community (an economic development program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation) and a Preserve America Community (a designation for cities blending historical assets with economic development efforts).  Hernando was named as Mississippi's Healthiest Hometown in 2010 and named "Playful City USA" four years in a row.

The Kittell Law Firm is pleased to represent many of the citizens of Hernando and Desoto County in their legal disputes and files many car wreck and personal injury lawsuits in Hernando at the Desoto County Courthouse, which is within walking distance of the Kittell Law Firm. According to attorney Christopher E. Kittell, "it has been a joy to be an attorney in Hernando and get the opportunity to represent so many residents of Hernando."

Hernando is even the home of an international celebrity, namely the "Killer" Jerry Lee Lewis. Just like Jerry Lee, the Kittell Law Firm is proud to be located in Hernando, Mississippi and looks forward to being Hernando's law firm for many years to come.
