Attorney Profile

At Meriwether & Tharp, LLC, Amy Latrese Cooper is an associate attorney who represents the people of Kansas City who are dealing with the difficult situations that arise in family law. Formerly with the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney’s office, Ms. Cooper worked as an assistant prosecuting attorney in the General Crimes Unit and the Family Support Division and gained jury trial experience prosecuting various felonies and misdemeanors.

For her work with previous clients, Ms. Cooper has earned an Avvo “Superb” rating and been named as one of the Top 40 Under 40 by The National Advocates and the Top 40 Under 40 matrimonial attorneys by The National Black Lawyers. She earned a Juris Doctor from Emory University School of Law in 2012 after completing a Bachelor of Arts at Millsaps College in 2009. With extensive experience in all areas of family law, she is particularly focused on cases of contested divorce.

Ms. Cooper handles family law issues, including divorce, child custody, asset division, child support alimony, paternity, adoption, grandparents’ rights, same-sex divorce and common law marriage. Those who are seeking an annulment or divorce can expect a thorough review of their case to determine exactly what is right for their unique situation.

She approaches divorce with an emphasis on three areas: strategic case management, client education and early mediation for cases that are amicable and do not require a trial. Although Ms. Cooper believes court should never be the first option, she is prepared to take a case to trial if necessary to protect the rights of her clients.
