Merrida (Buddy) Coxwell is the Managing Partner of Coxwell & Associates. The firm has been a leader in the area of defending people charged with criminal offenses and serious, catastrophic accident and injury cases. In the area of criminal defense the attorneys handle every type of charge, ranging from City Court, Justice Court, County Court, Circuit Court, Federal Court, and quasi–criminal boards against professionals. The attorneys recognize that to some people a misdemeanor charge or two brought by an overzealous law enforcement officer can be a detrimental to their career as a felony is to someone else. For that reason Coxwell & Associates is sought out by professionals like doctors, dentists, nurses, engineers, and businessmen and women who need to protect their reputation or those of their children.
In the area of serious accident and injury cases Coxwell & Associates have been a driving force to help people recover for harms and losses they have suffered due to company’s or another person’s carelessness or lack of interest in safety. Handling serious accident and injury cases can be excruciatingly slow. The large, multi–national companies employ every form of delay. It is frequently difficult to gather all of an individual’s medical records rapidly due to the slowness of medical record companies, and often times the attorneys must wait on the client to reach maximum recovery, also known as maximum medical improvement. Clients have difficulty understanding the slow pace at which these cases move but the attorneys at Coxwell & Associates make it clear that they are dealing with the client as an individual human and not a case number. Getting a quick “nickels on the dollar” settlement is not in the client’s best interest and is not the goal of Coxwell & Associates. Clients become friends and at Coxwell & Associates we want to treat our friends the same way we would want our own family treated.
