T. Hunt Cole Jr.
Hunt Cole was inspired to pursue a legal career by lawyers in his hometown who served as mentors and as examples of lives of professionalism and service. With a litigation and appellate career now spanning over thirty-five years, including clerkships for two federal judges, heading the Civil Litigation Division of the Mississippi Attorney General's Office, and over a hundred reported cases in which he served as lead or assistant counsel, Hunt brings a wealth of experience, creativity, and tenacity to each engagement for a client. He assisted in the formulation and execution of successful asbestos defense strategies in cases which changed the landscape of Mississippi tort litigation, including the end of mass joinder of plaintiffs. More recently, Hunt was involved in the development and successful application of the government military contractor defense and maritime law defenses for Navy equipment suppliers in Asbestos MDL-875, as well as the defense of Jones Act cases arising from the Deepwater Horizon incident. Hunt resides in Jackson with his wife, a Bichon-Poodle named Little B, Fender Stratocaster guitars, road bicycles, fishing and hunting gear, and a collection of CDs ranging from Miles Davis to Merle Haggard.
