Coopers LLP’s long-term success relies on living our values and following our strategy. As we help you, we prioritize:
We leverage our team’s broad talents to bring insurmountable pressure to bear on the opposition. Our regular case strategy sessions focus our creativity and problem-solving on your issues to move toward a successful resolution.
We take time and effort to communicate, listen, and explain. This means simple explanations about complex legal landscapes. We provide a road map and guidance across the claims landscape, a foreign land most have never travelled before. Our goal? Make sure you have all the answers to make the right choice for yourself about settlement versus trial. The ultimate decision – settle or go forward – is yours, not ours, but made with all the input you need to make the best decision.
We’ve been there. We’ve suffered our own injuries. We’ve spent weeks in the pediatric ICU with a three-year-old on the razor’s edge. We understand the pervasive impact these events have and can relate in a way few others can. We provide strength and support in your most difficult times. Through our understanding, we convincingly tell your story to the decisionmakers – whether that be insurance adjusters, defense lawyers, mediators, arbitrators, juries, or judges.
Values & Culture
We live our values and incorporate them into our daily interactions. That includes clients, the community, the opposition, and the firm. Our adherence to these values defines our culture and our commitment to the greater good. We recognize we may not always perfectly walk this path but take the commitment seriously. If you believe a firm or team member action diverged from our way, please immediately call us at (415) 434-2111, tell us you have a values and culture concern, and ask to speak to Maryanne or Miles Cooper.
