Decades Of Experience, From Our Family To Yours.

At the Silver Spring law offices of Cooper Law Firm, we have developed a reputation for successfully handling complex, high-value cases since 1971. Attorney Steven M. Cooper has broken legal ground and been at the forefront of positive change in highly publicized civil litigation cases primarily associated with personal injury claims. Mr. Cooper's case opened the door to all future tort liability against the District of Columbia. His accomplishments include obtaining numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients.

National Recognition And Accomplishments

Mr. Cooper was elected as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in America by The National Trial Lawyers association. He is a Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum certified member and has won many multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts in negligence and wrongful death cases for personal injury clients.

A widely respected lawyer with over a 40-year track record of positive outcomes in groundbreaking personal injury cases and other high-value civil litigation. Mr. Cooper's successes have included winning verdicts against the District of Columbia and Maryland government, multimillion-dollar plus settlements and verdicts in auto accidents, medical malpractice, defective premises, governmental tort liability and other personal injury cases, with positive financial results for countless other individuals and families.

In one of Mr. Cooper's early cases he established government responsibility for injuries by the police and in the jail facilities. Prior to Mr. Cooper's case, the District of Columbia was immune from being sued in such cases. His case opened the door for all claimants to file suit against all district employees and agencies. In another he won the highest verdict in history in Prince George's County, MD.

Mr. Cooper's motto is "I work for you. You are not working for me." Our firm is client-collaborative, and we work to ensure that as our client your voice is heard. If you, at any time, have an issue with the legal services, we will work with you to find a solution that works.
