Jackson Attorneys 

Serving Clients in Hinds County, Madison County & Rankin County

Coxwell & Associates serves clients in the two major areas of personal injury and criminal defense. We have been serving the needs of Mississippians since 1980 and have built a history of success. Our team is passionate about providing the highest quality of legal representation and service available. Our practice is not merely a business but a lifelong commitment to helping those in our community resolve their legal problems. We consider it a privilege to have represented individuals and families in our area for well over 40 years. 

We focus our practice in the above-limited areas to provide more highly-skilled service to you. For example, family doctors address general medical conditions while cardiologists address serious issues involving your heart. Both are doctors but they have different professional concentrations. At our firm, Attorneys Merrida Coxwell and Chuck Mullins have limited their areas of practice to fine-tune their skills within the civil and criminal frameworks in which we operate. We believe this approach better equips us to help you and serve your needs. 

Need advice about your case? Contact a Jackson attorney for personal injury or criminal defense at Coxwell & Associates online or at (601) 265-7766 for a free initial consultation.

Our team is backed by more than 70 years of combined experience. We have recovered more than $300 million for our personal injury clients as well as successfully resolved thousands of criminal arrests and charges. Our knowledge, skills, and performance for our clients have led to many awards and recognitions by prestigious legal industry organizations, such as The National Trial Lawyers, Avvo with the highest 10.0 rating of Superb, Super Lawyers, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. These awards reflect the quality of professionalism and service you can expect when bringing your case to us.

The Importance of an Experienced Lawyer

Any law firm can put “experienced” on their website but not all “experienced” law firms are created equal. That being said, the importance of proven trial experience cannot be overstated when considering a personal injury lawyer, catastrophic injury lawyer, wrongful death lawyer, or a lawyer to defend you from criminal charges. 

We believe you need to dig a little deeper when considering whom to hire for representation. Make sure you are dealing with an attorney who has actual case results and proven successes at trial. If your potential lawyer fails to be forthcoming with case results, experience, and trial history, you should be concerned. Experienced trial attorneys are happy to speak about their cases and answer any questions about trial results. At Coxwell & Associates, we are proud to have settled hard-fought cases in the past for millions of dollars. We do not settle for pennies on the dollar but seek fair and reasonable settlements or jury verdicts for our injured clients. 

In the matter of criminal defense, you need a defender who will take the time and effort to uncover shaky evidence that can put your charges in doubt, who knows how to build strategic defenses against well-funded prosecutors, who can go toe-to-toe with these prosecutors, and who knows how to negotiate with them as well as challenge their cases in court. Our attorneys understand the consequences of criminal convictions and the importance of fighting for your rights and your future. That is why we give our clients an aggressive and thorough defense.
