Holcomb Dunbar was formed by the merger of two law firms in Clarksdale, Mississippi in 1970. The firm, however, traces its roots to John W. Cutrer who founded one of the predecessors to the current firm in 1885. By the time Nobel Laureate William Faulkner was born, John W. Cutrer had been practicing law in Clarksdale for a dozen years. The descendents of Cutrer’s firm have become Holcomb Dunbar, home-based where Faulkner himself made his home base for most of his life: Oxford, Mississippi.
