Jackson Personal Injury Lawyer

At Coxwell & Associates, we are experienced and caring Jackson personal injury attorneys with a history of success. Each lawyer is passionate about providing the best legal representation and service available. We do not consider the practice of law as a business, rather, as a life-long career and profession with the purpose of helping Mississippians resolve their legal problems. Mississippi is our home. We consider it a privilege to have represented Mississippians for well over 35 years.

About Coxwell & Associates

Our law firm is not a general practice law firm. Our attorneys focus their practice in limited areas in order to provide a more highly skilled service to our clients. For example, you would see a family doctor for general medical conditions (cold, flu, etc.) but would see a cardiologist to address a serious medical issue involving your heart. Both are doctors, but have a different focus. At the law firm of Coxwell & Associates, PLLC, our managing partner, attorney Merrida Coxwell and partner, attorney Chuck Mullins have limited their area of practice and fine-tuned their skill to work within the following legal areas:

  1. Personal Injury Litigation
  2. Criminal Defense
  3. Civil Rights Litigation
Personal Injury Litigation

Someone who has suffered a personal injury would be a person who has been harmed mentally, physically, or financially due to the negligent inaction or action of another party. Personal injury cases can range from an accident involving some type of motor vehicle or stemming from the use of a defective drug. Whatever the cause of the personal injury, we are dedicated to recovering for our clients the full measure of justice to which they are entitled. We understand that a seriously injured person will have only one chance to recover damages (money) for the harms and losses they suffer, so you need a Jackson personal injury lawyer who has real experience in this area.

We have been involved in complex civil litigation. In the past five years, we have won jury verdicts or negotiated settlements on behalf of clients that total almost $300 million. Understand that under most circumstances, someone that has suffered a personal injury due to negligence of another will only have one chance to recover what they are due for the loss they have suffered. We take that very seriously and dedicate our full efforts and abilities to see that our clients are given the due regard and representation they warrant. In order to better serve our clients that have suffered from a defective drug, our managing partner, Merrida Coxwell, is licensed in DC, West Virginia, and Arkansas and our partner, Chuck Mullins, is licensed in DC and West Virginia, in addition of course to the great state of Mississippi. Our goal has never been to be the highest volume firm but to provide the highest quality of legal representation available. If you’ve been seriously injured, we can help.

Criminal Defense Representation

If you are charged with a crime, then your choice of attorney may make the difference between freedom and prison. We know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. Our lawyers have over 70 years of combined experience handling criminal defense cases such as capital murder, violent crimes, drug offenses, white collar offenses, complex Medicaid/Medicare cases, tax evasion, and more. We have represented former mayors, attorneys, countless professionals, and hundreds of other hard-working people in Mississippi who have been accused of a crime.

You need a lawyer that will aggressively defend you and that has the experience necessary to guide you through State and/or Federal criminal procedure. We encourage you to review several of our representative criminal cases and to review many of the testimonials we have received from clients over the years. If you have been charged with a crime, you need an attorney who knows how to stand for you and how to obtain the most favorable result available within the facts of your case. We’ve also had an amazing reversal rate within the over 160 appellate cases we’ve handled, including a recent MS Supreme Court reversal. Contact us now for a free consultation and review of your case.

Civil Rights Litigation

The attorneys at Coxwell & Associates have strived for and are proud of being a part of spearheading civil rights protection in Mississippi. The definition of civil rights is the rights of citizens to equality, social, and political freedom. These rights may not be disrupted by your employer, an institution, or the government. We have helped many people who have suffered from civil rights violations such as police brutality and various forms of misconduct just to name a few. Please review our representative civil rights cases for more examples.

Regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or other factors, these rights are fundamentally secure along with other basic rights that our Constitution guarantees such as freedom of press, speech, religion, unreasonable search and seizure, and protection against racial discrimination. If your civil rights have been violated, please contact us now for a free consultation. We can help.
