One of Mississippi’s Oldest Law Firms

Trusted for Over 150 Years

Our firm has a rich history of serving the people of Vicksburg, Mississippi and the surrounding areas since 1866. The firm began as Pittman & Pittman, and over the years, it evolved through several successor firms, including Hirsh, Dent & Landau, and Dent, Ward & Martin.

In 1990, the Dent, Ward & Martin firm merged with the law firm of Teller, Chaney & Derivaux, which had been serving the community since 1930 as Vollor & Teller, and later as Vollor, Teller & Biedenharn. The merged firm became Teller, Martin, Chaney & Hassell, then Teller, Chaney, Hassell & Hopson, followed by Teller, Hassell & Hopson, to its present name of Teller, Hopson & Schrader.

Committed to Excellence

Today, the firm bears the name Teller, Hopson & Schrader, LLP. Our firm’s long and storied history speaks to our commitment to providing unparalleled legal representation to Mississippians for generations.

We are proud to carry on that tradition of excellence and bring our clients the same level of expertise and dedication that has been the hallmark of our firm for over a century and a half.
