Questions About Business Disputes

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing your business dispute lawsuit. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

At what point should I contact an attorney for a business dispute?

If you try to solve a business dispute yourself, your conversations become part of future litigation. As soon as you feel like a deal has gone bad, contact us for a free consultation. We’ll create a strategy to set you up for a successful outcome. Once we’re involved, you can get back to business as usual because you know competent attorneys are handling your case.

How much will a business dispute attorney cost?

Our model is unique and lessens the financial burden on clients so they can seek justice without worrying about paying legal bills. Instead of charging by the hour, we strive to work on a contingency basis. Your initial consultation is free, so there’s no risk for you. If we move forward, our firm covers the costs of investigating your case and hiring experts. You don’t pay a dime unless we win.

Do your attorneys push to settle a case or go to court?

Neither. We come up with a strategy based on your goals, such as maximizing your payout or keeping your business out of the news. We keep you informed every step of the way, and we take your case as far as you want to go. Our attorneys are experts in business law, and we close 100% of our cases.

What can I expect in our initial consultation?

You will meet with an experienced attorney who will listen to your story and discuss the legal options available to you.

We will be honest with you about how the legal system works and possible avenues to explore to seek justice for your situation.

Our law firm handles disputes for family businesses, small businesses, individuals, and large corporations. We carry the burden, we make decisions together, and we keep you informed every step of the way.

    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 knowledgeable.read 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 again.read 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

    I would highly recommend Cooper Elliott to any of my friends and family! Chip Cooper was extremely helpful guiding me through a... difficult process. Chip was patient with me and provided feedback during the process that kept me informed until the desired outcome was achieved. There were interactions with other staff of the firm (whose names I do not know) that were helpful as well, I was impressed with the entire team!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 obvious.read more
