A Message from the Founders

For over 30 years, we have represented people, not clients, nationwide and across borders, handling cases involving serious personal injuries, wrongful deaths, exposures to toxic chemicals and defective or dangerous products. Whenever people are seriously injured or killed by the negligence of others, there is a story to tell, which is why we put you first and take the time to listen to your unique stories, piece them together, tell them clearly and with passion, and do it in a way that produces a just result for you. We firmly believe in tailoring our legal services to fit the individual needs of each client, not the other way around.

While the pain may be common, we understand that the story is very personal. That is why at Flint Cooper we win by leveraging broad legal thought leadership while strategizing in uniquely individual ways.
