Dear Merrida & Chuck:

My plan has been to write you a thank you note and have a big party, but I kept getting busy at work. You and Chuck deserve a "formal" thank you from me for all you have done for my father and his case. Just the lawyering was amazing. I still love your closing when I think back on it and your handling of the matter throughout was superb. I'm aware of the efforts-physically, mentally, and emotionally-you made on my father's behalf. I don't think I can adequately describe the depths of my appreciation, so please know when I say thank you I say if from the depths of my heart. Keep up the good work in all you do.

Sincerely, M.A.

Well, Merrida Coxwell, I doubt you remember me but you and Chuck saved my arse!! I'm forever grateful and loved watching y all in action.

Mr. Coxwell, you helped me years ago with a case, I will never forget your kindness, thank you again.

I am in agreement with you!! Mr. Coxwell goes above and beyond for his clients.

Former client!

Merrida Coxwell is the best and i will recommend him to anybody.

Linda Walker

Thank you Merrida Coxwell for helping me through my problems! I will forever thank you and respect you. Some of us loose ourselves through the worst situations ever but we have to start over! You are appreciated more than you know!

Hello Mr. Coxwell, How have you been? I don't know if you remember me but about 3 or so years ago you helped me and my family with my case. I was kicked out of school and facing jail time. I wanted to update you on how I've been doing. I recently finished my last year of high school and graduated with honors. My twin sister and I have also been accepted to a university which we will be attending this fall. I would just like to thank you for giving me a second chance. I appreciate the genuineness you showed me and my family during that time and I'm beyond grateful and I really want to say Thank You. I didn't forget about Ms. Lena either, could you please tell her I said thank you as well. God Bless ❤️

"Dear Mr. Coxwell, Thank you so much for the time and energy you have exerted on my behalf. I am sincerely grateful for all of your assistance. While I cannot yet offer the same level of professional expertise in return, I remain in your debt, and humbly volunteer my services in my current capacities-perhaps as a babysitter or photographer. Again, thank you, and please let me know how I might repay you.

Had a two-day jury trial this week on a aggravated assault with a self-defense issue.

In large part due to your jury instructions and very helpful lecture a couple of years ago at one of the public defender conferences in tunica, I was able to get a not guilty for my client. I use your jury instructions for almost every one of my trials. Thank you again for such a helpful tool.

To Merrida Coxell,

I don't know why a man of your stature chose to represent me but I am grateful that you did. I would like to thank you as well as your staff for their diligence, time, and patience while working on my case. I faced up to 30 yrs and the outcome was nolle prosequi. Thank you for a job well done.


Dear Mr. Coxwell:

I appreciate what you have done for me. I have thanked James Hall for recommending Coxwell & Associates. If I use any other lawyers, it would be Coxwell & Associates and if you are a person looking for a lawyer, I would recommend them. My friend went to one of those big television law firms and what you all did for me is way greater than what they did for him. You all are the best.


Because of you B. G. completed her 10th-11th grade. Because of you she has the opportunity to become whatever she chooses to be. Because of you she has been given a second chance, and it's all because of you. I thank you.


I feel very blessed. You guys did a wonderful job and Buddy is a unique individual whose personality won over my parents in a few minutes. They were singing his praises all the way after court. Thank you guys very much and will fax you Monday


Hey Buddy. This is E.M. As I sit here waiting for John to come out, I realized that I did not thank you for helping us. Please forgive me for not expressing my appreciation to you earlier. This whole deal has me a little rattled!


Thank you for defending my case with such tenacity, compassion, respect and humanity. I so truly appreciate the fact that you recognize and respect my humanity. You helped to restore my faith (and the faith of my family) in the good. I know that you could have done much less than you did (or have done it with much less conviction) and no one would have faulted you. It is rare to see such generosity and integrity, and I will never forget how you fought for me. Thank you. Truly thank you. If ever we can do anything for you, please don't hesitate to ask.


M & T

Dear Mr. Coxwell,

I am writing to you to thank you for your help with my nephew.

About a month ago I called your office and left a message for you. Knowing that you do not deal with custody matters you still called me back. You took the time to listen to me about what all was going on and steered me in the right way on who could help me.

Your generosity and thoughtfulness is so appreciated . I cannot thank you enough. I’m sorry it has taken a while for this much deserved “thank you”.

We will be back in Mississippi, my home, for Court on April 14th for hopefully full custody of Kevin.

Thank you again! You are a very kind and generous man to have helped us in this matter.

With love,


Dear Merrida,

Thank you for representing me in Mississippi while I resided in Virginia. I'm sure you remember us.. She left me soon after the conclusion of the Court decision as I had a motorcycle accident. However this is not about that I appreciate everything you did. You who won the case for me and had the whole courtroom in tears showing my photographs of my son and his Christmas gifts I never got to give him.Just wanted you to know you always be in my heart for helping me thank you.


Mr. M. Coxwell,

I can’t thank you enough for taking over my case and working so hard on my behalf.

My parents also want to express our appreciation to you. We consider it a blessing, one that was much needed. It’s a kindness that showcases your spirit and understanding as well as the goodness in your heart.

Continued success and many blessings to you.

With much gratitude,

J. Miller

Dear Chuck and Merrida,

Your diligence on Carter’s behalf has been priceless. It has been far beyond the call of duty. Without you, Carter would still be a broken man. Sincerely.

If it is any gratification, Carter has been sober (alcohol and drug) since his arrest in July based on his grandparents account of his behavior and activities. There are several reliable indicators that support this declaration.

Words cannot express the level of gratitude and appreciation the entire  family has for you.

With utmost sincerity,


I just wanted to say thank you once again for representing me and getting my case dismissed. I was wanting an attorney that the Prosecutors may be afraid to deal with and apparently I made the right choice.


Dear Buddy and Eric,

Thank you for all you did on my behalf and keeping me out of wearing green or pink striped pants! I’ll forever be grateful to you both!


Dear Chuck;

Your intolerance for disrespect caused a reaction in William that was noticeably effective (got through to him). Your read of the situation and handling thereof gave me courage to use similar (more extreme) tactics that in concert likely contributed to his improving behavior over the past 5 weeks.

The point is, it's worth mentioning that your instincts were right. I appreciate and respect the position you took, to me it was a sign of outstanding character.

Please accept my gratitude for your candor and my apologies for the necessity.

With kindest personal regards,

Your Client's Father

Dear Merrida;

Thought you might like an update on my daughter. You helped her when she got into serious trouble about four years ago. She got married two and a half years ago, graduated from college, then got a bachelor degree in Nursing. She now works as a skilled medical professional. She and her husband are very active in their church. Our family very much appreciates what you did to help her. Just thought you might like to hear a "success story" regarding someone you had helped along the way.

Your Client’s Father

Dear Frank;

We are a happy family all because of you! Thank you for your help, kindness, and time.  We appreciate you more than we could possibly tell you.




We received our discharge and decree on yesterday.  Thank you, and thanks to Joanie, for your very professional, personable, and courteous service.



Attorney Coxwell (Frank);

It was a pleasure talking to you and I just wanted to say "Thank You" for really taking the time out to educate me on bankruptcy and also making me feel comfortable about the decision. Thank you for your time, patience, and understanding.


Dear Merrida,

I cannot thank you enough for what you and Chuck did for me. Losing my husband devastated me. And then to have the responsible party try to blame him for his own death, hurt me so much. You all handled the case so aggressively and professionally. I did not know lawyers could be so caring. Money will never make up for his death, but you explained it was the best the legal system could do and you and Chuck did the BEST!

Thank you,



Words cannot express my thanks for your help in Starkville. You are a master in your profession, and I’m confident that once you determine your next direction that it will have a positive impact on many. I believe you will enjoy and gleam some new insight from the enclosed book (I’m halfway thru it). Granted, it’s not as exciting as the Spanish Conquest albeit it may help you understand why some folks succeed and others fail.

Keep up with the mountain biking and I hope you’ll drop me a note when you find your new direction. If you ever visit Atlanta, please give me a call and I’d love to meet you for a drink, lunch, or dinner.

Thank you!


Dear Mr. Coxwell,

Someone up there must really like me. I’m very glad we found you. If we hadn’t, I might not be here at home right now.

After we walked out of the courthouse, I felt like jumping up and hugging you. Alas, I felt it would have been somewhat inappropriate. Again, I cannot thank you enough and I will remember you forever.

Many thanks,


Dear Mr. Coxwell,

John and I would like to thank you for the excellent result in Ryan’s case. We are pleased and very relieved. It is a lesson learned the hard way for him and it had better stick!

Again, my family and I (this include Ryan’s little sister, Amy) are grateful for your excellent work.

Wishing you all the best,



Thank you for your representation in what could have been a life-changing event for me. As I look back on this episode, I will always remember your diligence, attention to detail, and knowledge of the law. My family will always be indebted to you. Thank you again to you and your staff.


Merrida, words cannot describe the gratitude that I have for your help on my case. A huge burden has been lifted off me because of your generosity.


Merrida, I want to thank you again. You are truly a super attorney. I trusted you from day one when I met you and I had faith and your came through. I would refer you to anyone. The system can be a bully and you protected me from getting roughed up. I mean what I say, I am not blowing smoke. You are a good person and that is why God blesses you. You are fair and that is why you are ranked no. 1. God bless you.

Hey Buddy,

Anthony is through with the Probation as of yesterday and his name is cleared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough for all that you did for him and I!!! I hope you never ever go through anything in that realm of life with your children!! I feel that you won't, yet one never know what the next thing is, but you seem to have it together way more than most. (mothers are very good at blame and guilt!), I think I wrote the book on it myself :) It is time to celebrate, I have just held my breath and prayed alot for a long time. Anyhow, thank you, thank you, thank you for being you!! You are my hero!! :)


Thanks Chuck for everything. Please thank Buddy for me also. I thank you and my family thanks you. If you ever need anything don't hesitate to call.

Forever grateful,

Dear Buddy,

How does one begin to say what one feels about what we’ve all been through these last few years. Clearly there is nothing one can say but thanks. A lot goes into that word as it is relayed from me to you. Real friends, those who accept you as you are and share the low times, are hard to come upon. I have found you to be one of those rare individuals I can call my friend.

To me, this watch is an expression of something that occurs every day, the passage of time. Every day we all take this event of time and use it in many ways. I never appreciated time in the past as I do now. Your efforts have allowed me more time. My promise to you is that I will be a good steward of this time and use it wisely. Knowing you, I don’t imagine you will think too much of this event in years to come. You were doing what you were sworn to do – representing your client to the best of your ability – within the boundaries of the law.

I hope this symbol of time will represent our friendship; something that occurs every day even though we might not pay attention to it that closely on a day to day basis. Thanks for those hours of time I know you labored, both professionally and personally. There is no amount of expression I can offer to truly relay my feelings of appreciation.

I can offer my friendship over the years to come. You will always have my friendship. If you ever need help I’ll be there for you as you have been there for me.

Your friend,
(name redacted for privacy.)

Dear Merrida, Chuck & Eric:

Congratulations and thank you from everyone at PETA! We greatly appreciate your work to have those charges dismissed and to protect our right to speak out for the animals who so desperately need our help! Please accept and enjoy this small token of our thanks.

All the best,


I can not thank you enough for your legal help with my son during times that I thought that the legal system was going to ruin his life for ever. A young man of 20 years old can make some really bad decisions and if they mess up and make a decision to do something that is illigal, well...It can be devistating. The incident with my son could have ruined his life for sure!!

Thank you so much for caring about people (him/me) enough to help him in a way that I did not know was possible!! You are the Best Attorney that I could have ever dreamed of! I will never EVER be able to thank you enough!! If anyone ever needs an attorney, You are the man I would want in my corner!! You have been a God Send and when anyone ask's me if I know of a good attorney, well I tell them that I know the Best!!!

Thank you so so much for all you have done for my son!!!! Thank you for being you!!! :)


Mr. Coxwell,

Thank you for getting me out of those tight spot I was in. Thanks to you I can continue with my goal in becoming an attorney. I hope I can become as good a lawyer as you one day.

Thanks again,


I just wanted to drop a line and thank you for your representation and how much I think of you and also let you know how highly my father speaks of you. I hope at some point in my career I can achieve the name and respect you both have. You truly serve as an inspiration in our profession and one of the attorneys who give our profession a good name. You have done it the right way with class and dignity and do your very best to serve your client’s needs.

I know people don’t appreciate your dedication and tell you thank you enough. But let me say thank you for helping me and I appreciate you doing a great job representing me.

I hope you’re doing well in Jackson. If your ever on the Coast come by and say hello. I’ll do the same if I am in Jackson. Take Care.

Thanks again Mr. Coxwell,

To: The Coxwells

I just want to thank you all so much. For times are hard right now that was a true blessing. Your kindness will not be forgotten. May God Bless. And I will pay this kind of kindness forward.

I would have sent a thank you before now but mom just got out of the hospital. And I am getting ready to go in for surgery. The time is just right. Thanks!! Thanks!! Thanks!!


Recently, due to unforeseen circumstances involved in my public employment, I found myself in need of legal assistance. I retained an lawyer to represent me in this matter, and personal injury lawyer Mr. Merrida Coxwell was later brought in to assist in my defense.

Mr. Coxwell was extremely professional in his representation and expressed a sincere concern while representing me, and with the outcome of the case.

With his true concern about what could happen to me, Mr. Coxwell, along with our retained attorney, used his legal, moral, and ethical expertise to obtain a sentence we may not have obtained otherwise. The end result was much better than we had expected.

Mr. Coxwell proved to be a valuable asset in the final outcome of my case. I feel that the American Justice System does work, if qualified attorneys such as Mr. Coxwell are involved in each case.


Let me take a moment to endorse the Law personal injury lawyers of Coxwell & Associates . I’ve been using this firm for twenty years now and have worked with Charles “Chuck” Mullins and Merida “Buddy” Coxwell for both personal and corporate litigations. In all those cases, the outcome has been favorable. For friendly and professional representation I would rate them Firm #1.


Merrida (Buddy) Coxwell saved my life not once but twice as I faced first a misdemeanor charge and then a felony charge ; thanks to Buddy I overcame both charges; and a misdemeanor conviction can ruin your life just like a felony conviction. The uninitiated to our justice system when fighting a criminal charge will find it to be a very steep learning curve with your life hanging in the balance; you are fighting a political machine comprised of the police, prosecution and judge; yes, the judge sits in sympathy with the police and prosecutor and in his eyes you are guilty; forget that crap about presumption of innocence. Buddy’s knowledge of the law, experience before juries and passion put him at the top when it comes to criminal defense in Mississippi; he is without peer. With the ever increasing revelations regarding police, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct and corruption in Mississippi you are in a war for your life then contact personal injury lawyer Buddy , he is the best warrior to fight that fight for you.


When the US economy began to have problems in October 2009, one of the largest mortgage banking companies in the United States raised our monthly fixed rate mortgage by $400 for no apparent reason. I had already taken a pay cut at work and the increase caused major financial problems . After writing everyone from the US President, to the Head of the US Banking System, to the Comptroller of the Currency and the CEO of the bank requesting loan modification, we got absolutely no help or hope. We were being daily harassed and threatened with foreclosure even though we had never missed a single payment at the original monthly mortgage rate. The mortgage company made lofty promises but did absolutely nothing it had agreed to… accept to give us grief and pain.

God directed us to Frank Coxwell and Frank was able to quickly close the mouth of the lion – preserving our home - through the only avenue left to us, a Chapter 13 Reorganization Bankruptcy. Frank skillfully maneuvered through our financial situation, working within our very small budget, dealing firmly with creditors, and enabled us to receive all the legal rights and benefits that citizens of the State of Mississippi are entitled to. Frank Coxwell represented us successfully in court and completed all the necessary paperwork and forms. When we were thrown 2 extra nasty curves that threatened to wallop us, Frank did not quit and in addition he helped us win our point and legally overcome those adversities. If you are facing bankruptcy, harassment from creditors, or if your mortgage company is a man-eating predator, do yourself a big favor and call Attorney Frank H. Coxwell , Jackson, Mississippi.
