Jacob R. Cox
  • Attorney




Jake represents individuals and businesses in a variety of litigation matters, including personal injury, professional and medical malpractice, consumer and employment litigation, mass torts/class actions and insurance and business disputes. Jake spent his first four years as an attorney at a large law firm in downtown Indianapolis with a practice that focused on defense of product liability and class action claims as well as representation of businesses in complex business disputes. Jake left that firm to start his own firm, Cox Law Office, in 2010 to represent the interests of plaintiffs, and then joined Hovde Dassow Deets in 2021. Jake is a passionate advocate for his clients and an active member of various legal organizations that represent the interests of plaintiffs and consumers, including the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association of Justice. Jake's skills as an attorney have resulted in a number of successful resolutions and jury verdicts for his clients, including individuals, companies, and certified class action classes, as well as honors that include being named as an Up and Coming Lawyer by Indiana Lawyer Magazine and being named an Indiana Super Lawyer multiple times. Jake lives in Indianapolis with his wife Jess, also an attorney, and their two children Alex (8) and Adam (5).
