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.

True to the Lightfoot way, Haley has gained unparalleled experience in her eleven years at the firm, trying difficult cases, taking countless key depositions, arguing critical motions, and managing complex litigation.

Over time, Haley developed expertise in a variety of practice areas ranging from product liability actions to medical malpractice 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, New Jersey, and Washington, D.C.

Whether the client’s goal is to obtain a favorable jury verdict or resolve a case quickly, 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 understanding the client’s business, uncovering the truth, and developing themes that resonate with a judge and jury.

Haley has always been active in the firm’s Recruiting Committee, where she works to implement Lightfoot’s commitment to hiring only the most talented, diverse, and motivated lawyers. Haley is proud to have a hand in developing the next generation of Lightfoot lawyers—lawyers with grit, strong character, and thick skin.

Haley is recognized as a Benchmark Litigation “Local Litigation Star” for 2018 and a Mid-South Super Lawyer for 2015-17.

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