About Johnny Givens

Johnny Givens grew up in the Mississippi Delta and then attended Ole Miss for undergraduate and law school . Upon completion of law school in 2004, he moved to Jackson, Mississippi to clerk for the Honorable Donna Barnes at the Mississippi Court of Appeals. In August of 2005, he started with Porter Malouf, P.A. law firm where he has continued to practice until the present.

Mr. Givens’ work with Porter Malouf has been varied and rewarding. Mr. Givens’ handles any type of personal injury case from car wrecks to nursing home abuse to premises liability. Mr. Givens primary focus is as a product liability attorney, involving defective respirators that result in his clients developing the deadly and incurable lung disease silicosis.

Through his hard work and success, he now represents individuals across the country that have developed silicosis.

Mr. Givens is also a regular host of the local weekly television show called Law Call. This weekly show allows the public to call in with legal questions which are answered live on the air.

Mr. Givens recently joined First Ridgeland Baptist Church as a member after attending there for the last several years.
