Other attorneys

Carolyn Mills, partner

After spending nearly three decades with the state Attorney General’s office, Mrs. Mills focused her private practice on personal injury, employment litigation, and family law matters, all while remaining involved in the Mississippi Women Lawyers Association.  Mrs. Mills first began her years private practice by opening a small firm with Ed Pittman, Sr., and later joined Pyle, Mills, Dye & Pittman.

 

Brad Dye, of counsel

After earning the distinction to be the only individual in history who served our state as Lieutenant Governor for three consecutive terms (1980-1992), Brad Dye was well-equipped to continue working with our state legislators.  Prior to holding that office, he had served in both the Mississippi House of Representatives and the Mississippi Senate, and had served as Mississippi state Treasurer.  In 1986, a commission studying the state’s constitution affirmed Lt. Gov. Dye’s perspective on the powers of the lieutenant governor’s office.  In September 2010, he was presented with the Mississippi Medal of Service by the Governor.

 

Ed Pittman, Sr., of counsel

He has been known by many statewide-office titles, but in private practice, Justice Pittman has worked in the areas of personal injury and medical malpractice.   Before joining Pyle, Mills, Dye & Pittman, Justice Pittman had served our state as a state senator, State Treasurer, Attorney General, Secretary of State, and most recently, Mississippi Supreme Court Justice, where he eventually headed the Court as Chief Justice.  He remains highly involved with his alma mater, the University of Southern Mississippi.

 

L. Arnold “Red” Pyle, 1913-2001

After L. Arnold Pyle completed his time serving as a JAG officer stationed and California, he and his wife Elizabeth McWillie Browne Pyle (1917-2010) returned to their home state of Mississippi where he began to establish his private law practice.  He later became Hinds County Chancery Judge, and after leaving the bench, he was asked to join as managing partner the firm that eventually grew to become Watkins, Pyle, Ludlam, Winter & Stennis.  Judge Pyle left that firm to form Pyle & Pyle with his son in January of 1981.  Always involved in the community, Elizabeth and Judge Pyle helped establish Keep Jackson Beautiful where he served as its first president, and Judge Pyle was invited to participate in the World Peace through Law conferences in Spain and the Philippines.  Today, the lawyers at Pyle, Mills, Dye & Pittman strive to continue the legacy of excellence that Judge Pyle established.
