Bill Luckett was born on March 17, 1948, in Fort Worth, Texas. His family moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi, when he was still an infant. His father was a lawyer and, as a young boy, Mr. Luckett worked as a janitor at his father’s law firm. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in American government at the University of Virginia, he continued on to the University of Mississippi Law School where he graduated in 1973. A member of both the Mississippi and Tennessee Bar, Mr. Luckett is currently a senior litigator with the law firm of Luckett Tyner. With offices in Clarksdale and Sumner, he specializes in trying lawsuits in federal and state courts. He has been recognized by Martindale-Hubbell, receiving its highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethical standards. In 2005, he was honored with the May Fest Trailblazer of the Year award for his outstanding and significant contribution to diversity and racial reconciliation, and holds a Lifetime Membership in the NAACP. In 2012, he was selected by Mississippi Super Lawyers as one of the top attorneys – no more than 5% of the lawyers in the state are selected. Consequently, it will come as no surprise to learn that he serves as an expert witness in legal malpractice suits and is frequently invited to lecture at attorney seminars. He is also a welcome speaker at civic clubs, tourist groups and universities.
