What do we do?
Learn about all of our practice areas »

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.



Our Practice Areas

If you have been injured or lost a loved one, you may be entitled to compensation for lost income, medical expenses, repairs, and pain and suffering.

Client Reviews

If your looking for the best Lawyers or Staff and organization in the business go no further than Cox Cox & Filo. I have worked as a Longshoremen for 43 years at the Port of Lake Charles and represented Longshoremen from Charleston S.C. to Brownsville , Texas in 25 Ports and as a Trustee of our Pension and Welfare fund, I also served as a Port Commissioner in the Port of Lake Charles for 15 years and have met and worked with many Attorney’s and powerful Law Firm’s in the Business. I can tell you this from my years of experience of different types of needs for attorney’s that I have never met a better Law Firm than Cox Cox and Filo. I am Proud to say that this Firm is from our area of State. I can’t say enough about Mike Cox and Ginger and Megan. They are like family as far as I’m concerned. If anyone in my family or friends need legal help I will be referring them to Mike Cox and the Firm because they are the best and most genuine group of people I have ever met in the business. They will represent you with all their heart and soul and I mean that. In fact one of my Nephews was critically injured in the oilfield business and I recommended Mike Cox to him and he told me that he owed his future to Mike and the Firm. Thank God I told my nephew because that could have been a great loss to him and his family if things went the other way with some attorney only looking for a pay check. Thank you Mike and Ginger and Megan Y’all the Best. God Bless Y’all and Happy New Year. Your Friend and Brother
