As a Mississippi-proud firm, Wise Carter celebrates the economic wins for the state of Mississippi, including the 2022 announcement of Amtrak, the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, returning to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Amtrak stopped running along the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Since Katrina, the Mississippi Gulf Coast region has worked hard to build back the local cities to create attractive tourist locations. The proposed route is two daily trains running with stops to Bay St. Louis, Pascagoula, Gulfport, and Biloxi. Service expects to begin in the early part of 2023.
Wise Carter’s second largest office is in Gulfport, overlooking the Port of Gulfport and Gulfport Station. Wise Carter has been providing top legal services to Amtrak for half a century, and they are excited to see the impact of how their clients can improve the state.
