A St. Louis native, Jamil Naji fights for injured victims across his home state of Missouri, tailoring his practice to motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death claims, and premise liability cases.
Jamil graduated from Pattonville High School in Creve Coeur and obtained an associate degree in Business Administration from St. Louis Community College, followed by a Bachelor of Science in International Business from the University of Missouri. He then went on to earn a master’s degree in international business from ESSCA School of Management. Finally, Jamil earned his Juris Doctor from Southern University Law Center, where he competed in several mock trial competitions and was awarded Best Oral Advocate, placed first with his team among all Louisiana law schools, and was awarded the Outstanding Advocate of the Year Award for his advocacy skills and commitment to justice.
Before joining our team at Cofman Townsley, Jamil worked with various organizations whose missions focused on fighting for and protecting everyday people’s civil rights. Since joining our team, Jamil has carried on that mission by dedicating himself to zealously advocating for his clients.
He has also established himself as Cofman Townsley’s leading attorney in Missouri’s Tort Victims’ Compensation Fund cases, fighting to ensure that victims receive appropriate compensation, even when the responsible party is unable to provide any or full compensation.
Jamil works hard for his clients because he cares so deeply. He has high expectations for every member of his team to ensure his clients walk away from their experience at Cofman Townsley happy and satisfied knowing that Jamil exhausted every avenue to justice. This dedication is highlighted in his clients’ victories, including a $4 million judgment on a wrongful death claim and multiple dog bite claims resulting in judgments in excess of $2 million.
When he is not working hard for his clients, Jamil enjoys spending time with his daughter Fida, aka FoFo, and working with his hands on his cars or carpentry projects around the house. Fluent in three languages—English, Arabic, and Chinese—Jamil is also a world traveler, but always looks forward to coming home to Missouri.
