“I had the pleasure of working with Sean Alto to resolve a personal injury I sustained that left me permanently disabled. Sean not only fought to get me the compensation I needed to help provide for my family, but continued to follow up with me long after my case has settled to check on me and my family. Sean and everyone at Cooper Elliott truly care about the wellbeing of their clients.”

Our Process

How We Work to Resolve Your Case

We keep you informed throughout the process. From our initial conversation through the conclusion of your matter, we are here when you need us.

1. Initial conversation

We discuss your goals and our process, and gather important information.

Call 614-481-6000

2. Evaluation

As we collect information, including records and witness statements, we assess the strengths and weaknesses of all possible claims and defenses and whether pre-suit settlement is feasible.

3. Filing the lawsuit

This starts the formal litigation process. Prior to filing we strategize as a team and collaborate with you to determine a path that we believe will best accomplish your goals.

4. Exchange of information

This is called the discovery phase and includes exchanging documents and obtaining testimony under oath from witnesses and experts.

5. Mediation

After sufficient information has been obtained, many times the parties will attempt to resolve the case by using a neutral person to help bring the sides together.

6. Trial

If mediation or negotiations are unsuccessful, the next stop is the courthouse.

    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 me.read 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 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
