Firm Details

The Lake Charles law firm of Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C. is rooted in the best American values:

  • The idea that the everyday person can stand toe-to-toe with big corporations.
  • The idea that carelessness and negligence are not rights, and must be eradicated.
  • The idea that justice isn’t justice unless it applies to us all.

Founded in 1969 by brothers James and William Cox, the law firm took risks, speaking up in the civil rights movement and providing strong support to unions. These risks irritated some, but they earned the loyalty of many more, and our law firm flourished.

Today we are widely regarded as one of the most successful personal injury firms in the state of Louisiana, and a national leader in mounting class actions. Workers’ Compensation Attorneys for Southwest Louisiana and elsewhere.

We are respected for our extensive expertise in litigation. When negotiations fail to obtain full value on a claim, we do not hesitate to take the case before a jury. The outcome, more often than not, has been success. In individual cases and in class actions, our firm has won some of the biggest judgments in state history.

Perhaps the best known is the judgment we won on behalf of over 15,000 doctors and other providers around the state, whose reimbursement requests had been systematically “downcoded” by health insurance companies, reducing and even eliminating many legitimate charges, the judgment amounted to $262 million. Litigating Car Crashes, Toxic Torts, and Maritime Accidents.

Our team of skilled lawyers really is a team. We collaborate freely with one another to provide the best strategies for clients. Every day, working from our historic Lake Charles offices in the Wachsen-Williams House at 723 Broad Street, we apply our combined 135 years of experience to achieve similar success for you.
