What do we do?

We only represent plaintiffs — people who have been injured. Why so one-sided? Because siding with the injured party is what’s in our hearts. Some people are born to defend insurance companies, banks, and Fortune 500 entities. We at Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson were put here to stick up for the average person.
Our mission is to provide help where help is most needed. From our founding days we stood up for farmers injured in the fields, for civil rights marchers in the ’60s, and today we are still at it, working to balance a system that usually favors the big money.
