CooperCBenjamin-53011-1055-C-smallColumbus, Ohio – Ohio civil litigation law firm Cooper & Elliott is pleased to announce C. Benjamin Cooper has joined the firm. Along with other attorneys at Cooper & Elliott, Mr. Cooper will practice in matters of wrongful death, civil rights violations, personal injury, medical malpractice, and business litigation.

Mr. Cooper joined Cooper & Elliott for the chance to work on meaningful, interesting, and challenging cases and learn from experienced trial attorneys. “The firm loves getting into the courtroom, and for cases that are very personal and important to the people who’ve been harmed,” said Mr. Cooper. “Also, the judges I talked with during my clerkship knew of and greatly respected Cooper & Elliott and its attorneys—that spoke volumes. I really felt lucky to join them.”

While Mr. Cooper possesses the compassion, intelligence, and creativity Cooper & Elliott look for in their select group of attorneys, he also brings an impressive background. “Ben was at the top of his class at UVA, both undergrad and law school, he was a rising star at a well-known Washington, D.C. law firm, and he was hand-picked to clerk for a United States Court of Appeals judge,” said Rex Elliott, the firm’s co-founder. “He has now carried this same standard of excellence to our firm and our clients. We are very fortunate to add Ben to our extraordinary team of lawyers and staff.”

Mr. Cooper received his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Virginia, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Virginia Journal of Social Policy & the Law. He worked in the Washington, D.C. office of Hogan Lovells before clerking for R. Guy Cole, Jr., Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  Mr. Cooper also teaches and guest lectures on oral advocacy at the University of Virginia School of Law.

In April, Mr. Cooper scored in the 100th percentile on the Ohio bar exam, joining Mr. Elliott as the second attorney at the firm to achieve that distinction.

Mr. Cooper currently resides in Columbus, where he hopes to help initiate new social programs for underrepresented populations.
