Haley Cox knows from experience that winning takes work and attention to detail.
Haley tries cases and leads defense teams in a wide range of high-stakes cases, including claims of product defect, medical malpractice and serious personal injuries. She is admitted to the Alabama and Texas bars, and she has litigated in more than a dozen states.
Haley understands what it takes to win: the truth, hard work and delivering the client's story so it resonates with judges and juries. She also understands that winning is different to every client and in every case. A win may be a fair and swift resolution, or it may mean fighting all the way to a verdict. Either way, opponents know that Haley – like every Lightfoot lawyer – is prepared to take the case as far as it needs to go.
For more than 10 years, Haley has been instrumental in recruiting the next generation of Lightfoot lawyers to serve the firm’s clients. She is committed to carrying out Lightfoot’s mission of hiring only the most talented, driven and diverse lawyers, and then training them the right way. In addition to her recruitment role at Lightfoot, Haley is also on the firm’s Executive Committee as well as its Diversity Committee.
Benchmark Litigation recognizes Haley as one of the “Top 250 Women in Litigation” nationally. Since 2014, Haley has been named by Thomson Reuters' Super Lawyers as a "Rising Star.” Haley has also been selected for the Alabama State Bar's Leadership Forum, and she has been named as "Best of the Bar," a "Rising Star of Law," and “Top 40 Under 40” by the Birmingham Business Journal.
Outside of work, Haley’s true loves are her family, Alabama football, running and good wine.
