Throughout his career, managing partner Merrida Coxwell has developed a reputation as a fierce critic of social and legal injustice. This drive has compelled him to accept many criminal cases that other lawyers shunned or were afraid to accept. When a person has a legal problem and needs help, Mr. Coxwell believes it is his job to set aside personal views in order to provide quality and aggressive legal representation. His dedication and drive has earned him a strong reputation in the fields of criminal defense law, personal injury law, and in financial fraud litigation.

Merrida Coxwell has distinguished himself in the area of personal injury law. He obtained a verdict in a product liability case working with two other attorneys that totaled over $144 million. He and his partner Chuck Mullins won a hard fought Federal Civil Rights case against the city of Jackson, collecting a $2.1 million verdict on behalf of a family who lost a child to the excessive force of Jackson police officers.
