Haley Cox delivers client-tailored defense counsel in cases involving product defect claims, serious personal injuries, and other high stakes matters in the Southeast and beyond.

More than ten years ago, Haley began her career at Lightfoot. This was her first “real” job, and it certainly was real from the start. True to the Lightfoot way, Haley gained invaluable experience early and often by taking countless key depositions; arguing critical motions; managing complex litigation; and trying cases.

Over time, Haley developed her expertise in a variety of cases ranging from product liability actions to fraud cases to complex business disputes. She has defended tough cases in Alabama and other venues across the country, including Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey.

Whether the client’s goal is to resolve a case quickly or obtain a favorable jury verdict, the opponent must understand that we are able and willing to take the case all the way. Haley particularly enjoys preparing cases for trial—a process that starts on Day 1 and requires knowing the client’s business, uncovering the true facts, determining the root of the problem, and developing themes that will resonate with a judge and jury.

Haley serves as Chairman of the firm’s Recruiting Committee, working to implement Lightfoot’s commitment to hiring only the most talented, diverse, and motivated candidates. Haley is proud to have a hand in developing the next generation of Lightfoot lawyers—lawyers with grit, strong character, and thick skin.

Outside of work, Haley’s true loves are her family, Alabama football, running, and good wine.
