Tacey Clark Locke has finally made it home! She grew up in Tishomingo County and graduated high school here in 1981. She left home to go to school to get an accounting degree from Mississippi College and proceeded to Memphis State University where she worked part time while attending law school.
After law school she was so fortunate to obtain a highly sought-after clerkship with the Honorable Glen H. Davidson, a federal Judge in Aberdeen, Mississippi. She clerked for Judge Davidson for two years and feels that time was invaluable in teaching her the fundamentals of litigation and discipline in the courtroom. Again, fortune shined on her after her clerkship with a job offer from the prestigious firm of Mitchell McNutt & Sams. While there Tacey primarily worked in the litigation area and became a shareholder after only five years with the firm. She tried numerous jury and non-jury trials, some by herself and some with the finest trial lawyers in Mississippi who all pitched in to help mentor Tacey and played a large role in helping her to become the attorney she is today. She remains grateful to Judge Davidson and all the attorneys at Mitchell McNutt & Sams who took the time to mentor her.
In 2002 Tacey made the difficult decision to move to a smaller firm and continued litigating cases and in 2004 took on the role of General Counsel for the Board of Supervisors of Marshall County, a job she enjoyed immensely.
In November 2005 Tacey moved back to beautiful Iuka, Mississippi and opened an office in Corinth, Mississippi. Finally on July 1, 2009 she moved her office to Iuka so she could be a five minute drive from home!
Although her home and office are in Iuka, Tacey serves all of North Mississippi from Aberdeen to Oxford to Corinth and all areas of North Mississippi where her services are needed whether it is in federal or state court and whether it be a circuit or chancery matter. She also handles state criminal defense matters.
Incorporating her daughter's favorite quote "People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing" by Andrew Carnegie, she enjoys the practice of law. She likes the law and helping people and tries to find the fun in doing it.
