Attorney Profile

In his first few months as an attorney, Mr. Cooper took a case to trial for a woman who was struck as a pedestrian that none of the partners in his firm could be bothered with.  After obtaining a verdict for the woman in excess of $100,000 which was more than ten times what the insurance company offered before trial, Mr. Cooper knew he found his passion in trial law.  He has always had a David and Goliath point of view about what he does and likes nothing more than facing off against insurance companies, national corporations, hospitals, municipalities and bigger firms with greater resources.  He has a tireless work ethic and puts his heart into every case he handles.  Since his first case, Mr. Cooper has continually honed his skills, gradually taking on cases of more and more significance.  In 2017, he obtained the highest verdict at the time in the state of 2.8 million dollars for the estate of a motorcyclist killed in an accident with a car.  Presently, Mr. Cooper still handles a wide variety of matters including motor vehicle, motorcycle, slip-and-fall, municipal negligence and product liability, especially those involving death or serious injuries.  Much of Mr. Cooper’s practice now, however, consists of high-stakes medical malpractice matters where he has successfully prosecuted cases involving all types of medical errors including, but not limited to, birth injury, fetal death, wrongful death, surgical error, misdiagnosis of cancer and nursing home abuse.  Several of Mr. Cooper’s cases in this area have resulted in recoveries in excess of $2,000,000.  But Mr. Cooper does not rest on his laurels and it is important to note that every case is different.  He agrees that past results are, in the past, and would prefer to be judged on what he is doing everyday to improve his skills.
