Mr. Jesse Cox first started at the firm as a Summer Associate in 2011. After graduating from Chapman University School of Law in May 2012, where he was a Moot Court Honor Board member and Notes & Comments Editor of the Chapman Law Review, Mr. Cox joined the firm as a Litigation Associate.

Prior to beginning his career with the firm, Mr. Cox was a judicial extern for Justice Raymond J. Ikola of the California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Three.

Mr. Cox’s practice encompasses all areas of civil litigation relating to the defense of California public entities, including general negligence, wrongful death, premises and personal injury liability, civil rights, police liability, workplace investigations, labor and employment, and appellate practice. Mr. Cox has experience in all phases of civil litigation, including responding to complaints, preparing and responding to written discovery, drafting and arguing discovery and dispositive motions in court, settlement negotiations, taking and defending depositions, assisting in trial preparation, arguing motions and examining witnesses in trial, and researching and preparing post-trial motions and appellate briefing. By way of illustration, Mr. Cox has had exceptional success disposing of cases by way of pre-trial motions for summary judgment in both state and federal court. Mr. Cox has managed several complex premises liability wrongful death matters, all of which involve multiple parties, voluminous discovery, and unique issues related to public entity immunities. Mr. Cox has also managed several high-profile civil rights matters involving law enforcement, including in-custody deaths and the application of force in the field. Mr. Cox was part of the trial team that defensed a twenty million dollar wrongful death claim in Landaverde v. City of Fontana, Case No. CIVDS1208532 and sat second chair at trial in the successful defense of two multi-million dollar civil rights cases against his law enforcement clients.

When not working, Mr. Cox enjoys exploring local and regional breweries, attending fitness classes with his wife, and enjoying life with family and friends.
