Dakota Pruitt


My name is Dakota Pruitt, and as a receptionist, it’s my job to help people connect to legal representation in a timely manner. Helping people is truly a passion for me, which has led me to where I am today. To progress in better connecting with people, and to connect with my family heritage, I have been learning to speak Spanish. Being from Southwestern Colorado, it has been an interesting experience creating new adventures in the Hattiesburg area, but I’m excited to see where it takes me!

If you ever need a criminal defense lawyer, PLEASE consider Tangi Carter, Attorney at Law! She has been amazing while representing me! 10/10 highly recommended! She did exactly what I hired her to do & even went the extra mile helping me on other things. I absolutely LOVE her!

Tangi A Carter and her crew was the best they got my case dismissed I would recommend them to anybody looking for a good lawyer hit them up.

- Pinder Birring

Mrs. Carter is beyond professional. She is also very effective. Her reputation and relationships in the courtrooms speak for themselves. There is no one else I would recommend in the entire Southeast. I was in a dark season of my life and not only did she know exactly what to do with my case, but she also referred me to other facilities in the area that could help me on a deeper level. Mrs. Carter is a fighter and is dedicated to helping you navigate the legal system and she makes it easy to understand the process. I would recommend Tangi Carter for any and every case. If she can't help, she will find you someone who can. I now live in Asheville, NC and I still seek her out for advise. Oh! and she ended up getting my DUI case dismissed.

- Joel Patrick

The best criminal defense lawyer! She is a life saver, literally. Someone close to me was facing some serious charges that would have left his family husband/fatherless had it not been for the plea deal she was able to wrangle for him. She's incredibly knowledgeable and a straight shooter that won't sugar coat anything. She's extremely thorough and will go over eveything she possibly can with a fine tooth comb. We'll never be able to thank her enough.

- Angelia Snowden

Tangi Carter is an angel on earth. The nightmare I had lived with for 18 months due to the laziness of my son’s previous lawyer ended within 2 weeks of hiring Tangi. She is not only amazing at her job but she is compassionate and fair. She restored my faith in the justice system. She ultimately saved my son’s life. I will be eternally grateful for her hard work and dedication to justice. I cannot say enough good things about her.

- Emily McBay

Tangi is the best. She handles high profile cases which mine was not but she took it on anyway and was very affordable. Things turned out far better than expected. Her personality is wonderful. She is very well liked by all officers of the court but perhaps not so much by the complaints. She exudes charm and professionalism. No need to shop around for an attorney with Tangi in town. (A good motto). She's the best. Thank you Tangi.
