Extensive Experience You Can Trust

While many law firms have offices in the area, Cooke Law Firm is one of the few to focus solely on personal injury cases. This singular focus gives us such advantages as a deeper understanding of personal injury law and the ability to build better individual injury cases for our clients.

Legal knowledge is essential, but we believe that our strength as trial attorneys who are dedicated to helping those who have suffered injury or death. We often handle car or truck collisions, premises liability, or wrongful death cases throughout Indiana. We fight for our client’s rights when litigation is necessary and provide the personal attention clients need for their cases.

Our 80 years of combined knowledge and experience have yielded much success in court and settlements. It also led to being recognized by peers and AV Preeminent* peer-review rated for preeminent legal ability and high ethical standards by Martindale-Hubbell. Both lawyers annually make the prestigious Super Lawyers list. Moreover, Jeffrey was awarded the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association Lifetime Achievement Award in April 2013.

No Case Is Too Complex

Our clients often find that their injury cases are highly complex. Along with the legal nuances, there are also complicated injuries and recoveries. Brain and back injuries, for instance, often require extensive medical evaluation to assess long-term impacts and necessary treatments, which may not be immediately apparent. Determining fair compensation is challenging since it estimates current and future medical bills, lost wages, and noneconomic damages like pain and suffering.

Taking a case to trial involves legal strategy, jury selection and presentation of evidence. Moreover, we typically go to trial against well-resourced adversaries such as insurance companies and trucking lines, which have experienced legal teams. This challenge can be daunting to less experienced firms because these entities often employ aggressive tactics to minimize payouts, necessitating a skilled attorney to defend their clients’ rights and future stability. Still, our record of success speaks for itself.

We Work On Contingency

The injured often need to focus on their recovery and cannot work. This reality can cause financial hardships at home, but personal injury attorneys work for a percentage of the award or settlement. There is no attorney fee unless we win your case.
