Kaela J. King


Kaela excels at helping clients achieve the legal results they seek in complex and sensitive cases. Before becoming a lawyer, Kaela had a decade-long career in education: she was a teacher and administrator in high-poverty schools, a nonprofit director, and a state policy advisor. Through these experiences, she developed a strong foundation in fighting for individuals and communities that face inequitable systems.

  • Clerked for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio and for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit

Kaela's Mission

I believe everyone deserves access to lawyers who are highly skilled, deeply compassionate, and justice-oriented. Cooper Elliott prioritizes all three of these values, and I feel lucky to practice law alongside such a dedicated team.
