About Cooper Legal Services

Dwayne E. Cooper

  • Solo General Practitioner - Although I have to limit my caseload somewhat, I do enjoy taking a broad range of cases and find that being a solo general practitioner keeps my legal skills sharp. Despite what some large firms might mislead you to believe, the size of a law firm has no bearing on the competence, cost or quality of the legal service. In fact, solo general practitioners who work hard and make effective use of computer technology are often many more times efficient than larger firms at quite a bit lower cost.
  • Personal Service - I personally handle your case. Unlike many law firms, I do not delegate your legal work to a secretary, paralegal, or law student.
  • Research Expert - I invest heavily in my library and in online research materials because I know that the ability to quickly access the vast sources of information from my desktop or office provides me with an advantage that makes my law office extremely competitive. Use of this technology allows me to do my work quicker and more efficiently. Through the use of the Internet, I maintain contact with several hundred attorneys and many experts whose opinions I can access very quickly.
  • Communicator - As a four year member of the Indiana University Debate team, I have had the opportunity to travel across the nation in competition while testing my communication skills with the best orators around the nation. As a teacher, lecturer and newspaper reporter, I have had the opportunity to further refine those skills. These past experiences allow me to feel at ease in the courtroom and have given me the confidence to be willing to go to the courtroom to ensure that your interests are protected.
  • Honest - At trial or in negotiation, your case is only as good as your lawyer's credibility.  Not only am I bound by the ethics established by my bar associations, but as a Christian, I abide by a much higher standard regarding my conduct which I take very seriously.  I will not assist in criminal or fraudulent conduct or bring a frivolous suit.  I'm not going to lie to you or tell you something that you may want me to say.  If I don't know something, I will tell you that and do my best to find out that information.  Furthermore, honesty is also something I expect and demand from every one of my clients.
  • Respected - I am active in several groups and bar associations on the local, state and national level.  I am fortunate to know and have contact with many attorneys across the nation.  If your case requires another type of attorney or specialist in something I don't do, I will help refer you to someone who can better help you.
  • Reasonable fees - Computer technology allows my office to deliver legal services that are cost-effective.  I do my best to keep you informed as to what your costs are and will likely be in regards to your situation.
  • Experienced - I've been fortunate enough to have been practicing law in my own firm since 1997.  I have had cases in over 50 different counties throughout the state.
  • Diligent - Despite an all too often slow legal process, I will expedite your case as quickly as possible and will keep you informed of the status of your case in a timely manner. I believe people are often awarded for virtues such as perseverance and hard work.
  • Loyal - Respect for the client's confidences and secrets demand that I represent the client loyally and zealously without any conflicts of interest.
  • Personal - I'm a real person with a real family who does real things.  I'm active in our local church.  I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids.  I love to fish.  I enjoy reading the Bible, American history and the law.  Not only will you see me in the courtroom, but you will also see me in the community.
  • Accessible - When you have a question concerning your case, I can be reached by mail, e-mail, fax and phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Because I am often in court or depostions or meetings, I may not be able to return your call immediately.  However, it is my goal to return all calls within 48 hours in order of priority. Furthermore, because I believe that all people should feel free to contact an attorney without fear of cost, my initial consultation is free.
