“Our family was devastated at the loss of our beautiful sister. We know God put us in Chip Cooper’s office in search of what happened. Chip Cooper and his crew uncovered many disturbing answers that led to her death. They stayed beside us as it took 8 years to get justice for our sister. They got to know her and our family. They fight and speak for those who have died at the negligence of others. They leave no stone unturned. We will always miss her until we meet again. There are not enough words that we can say to thank the Cooper Elliott team. If you want the answers, these are caring professionals that take their cases personally. May God Always bless you as you continue the fight for justice!”

Death and Serious Injury

We’ve built a reputation for handling the most serious and complex injury and death cases through consistent and proven results. We often take cases that other attorneys have rejected and use the law in innovative ways to obtain recovery for the tragic harm our clients have suffered.

Wrongful Death

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Car Accidents

Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries

Motorcycle Accidents

Injuries to Babies and Children

Truck Accidents

Medical and Professional Negligence

When you put your trust in professionals, you expect them to perform their duties reasonably and with the same level of care as other professionals within the same industry. When this does not happen, malpractice and professional negligence occurs. We will alleviate the catastrophic harm caused by a doctor, lawyer, care facility, or other professional’s mistake.

Medical Malpractice

Nursing Home Negligence & Abuse

Immigration Malpractice

Other Negligence by Professionals

Legal Malpractice

Civil Rights

We have fought for our clients against countries, states, and some of the biggest corporations and organizations. Let us be your check on power and hold your bully accountable. When people in power abuse their authority to harm you or treat you unfairly, it’s offensive and destructive.

  • Police brutality
  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation
  • Abuse or assault at school
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful conviction
  • Police brutality
  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation
  • Abuse or assault at school
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful conviction

Wrongful Convictions

We fight for victims of a failed system. When you’re a victim of a wrongful conviction, years can be taken from you. We fight for restitution to help you put the pieces of your life back together.

Contingency-Fee Commercial Litigation

We represent entities and individuals in all phases of internal and external business and contract disputes. Whether your dispute is with a business partner or a third-party, our experienced attorneys aggressively pursue cases to settlement or judgment.

  • Breach of contract
  • Commission disputes & litigation
  • Ownership disputes
  • Business fraud
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Business interference claims
  • Investor claims

Sexual Assault & Sexual Abuse

Many states are extending — or eliminating — the statute of limitations related to sexual abuse claims. Other states are opening specific windows of time to file claims, even if those claims otherwise would be time barred. The result is that individuals who have experienced sexual assault or sexual abuse can pursue justice. We understand the difficulties involved in these cases, and we take special care to protect the victim’s privacy and well-being at each step.

  • Sexual Abuse From Teachers or Professors
  • Sexual Abuse in Sports and Youth Organizations
  • Sexual Abuse From Clergy Members
  • Sexual Abuse in the Workplace
  • Sexual Abuse in the Medical Field and Nursing Homes


Hazing kills. We help victims and their families get justice. We work to keep students safe from deadly hazing practices and to change Greek culture across the country. Hazing is a vicious cycle. The young men in power are generally 19-21 years old and went through similar types of hazing themselves. However, there is a general belief that they have to make it a little bit worse each year. Some don’t believe what they are doing is wrong or even considered “hazing.” They are wrong. Hazing has deadly consequences.

Trucking Accidents

We bring negligent truck drivers to justice. Speeding or distracted truck drivers injure thousands of people every year. Our job is to hold them accountable. Our attorneys uncover the truth behind the truck accident. A variety of factors contribute to commercial truck accidents, including driver decisions, road conditions, and the vehicle itself. No matter how complex your case is, we’ll get to the bottom of what happened.

Let us protect you and your rights.

    I worked with Adam Richards and his team. They were empathetic to my situation and extremely professional. I don't know what I... would have done without their expert guidance and counsel. Adam really knows his stuff, and it was clear he had an excellent rapport with all who assisted in the case. Adam's communication abilities were next level. I never had to worry about getting ahold of him when needed. I know he and his team will continue to knock it out of the park for all future clients like they did for more

    I am so glad I found cooper Elliot. My attorneys Jon and Adam helped me through the entire process. After a traumatic experience... in my life I was confused and in pain. They worked tirelessly to become familiar with all the details of my story and represented me in a way that made me more able to process and understand the trauma myself. This was huge for me, while there’s still healing to do, I can do that work now instead of staying in a purgatory of cognitive dissonance. They didn’t just win justice for me, they are a significant part of my healing journey. They were validating, non judgmental, honest, and more

    Jonathan Bond handled a personal injury claim for me quickly with maximum results. He’s pleasant and enjoyable to work with, as... well as compassionate. The firm handled all the legwork of getting medical records and copies of paperwork, which not all firms do. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone and would definitely go back to him if the need were to arise more

    I honestly struggle to find the words to describe how incredible this firm is, especially Jeffrey Kenny and Sean Alto. 7 years... ago, my family started a journey through a nightmare. When the criminal justice system fell woefully short, Jeff agreed to take on our incredibly challenging and lengthy case, with no other reason than that it was the right thing to do, and he believed we deserved justice. There were so many times when I would have understood if they walked away, but they refused and vowed to get us the justice we deserved, and almost 7 years later, they have given my family just that. I will never, ever, forget what they have done for us. We were never just another case. They made us feel like we were their ONLY case! Thank you will never come close to the gratitude and respect I have for Jeff and Sean, as well as for Cooper Elliott. They will be superheroes in our home, forever!read more

    Adam Richards is the best attorney I have ever met. He is responsive and very patient (I had a lot of questions) and he truly... cares. He fought hard for me and he stands up to the bully. he is not afraid to take on anyone. Anytime I hear someone who has a legal issue I go out of my way to recommend Adam. He is unlike any attorney I have ever met. He is compassionate and he always answers his phone. There is no way I would have got the results I received with any other attorney. He was a bulldog in my case and really went to bat for me. Words cant express how grateful I am to him. His actions personally affected my life in a very positive way. He protected me in so many ways I couldn't begin to name them. It is a great feeling when you know your attorney outmatches the other party's attorney and it is more
