Sometimes success is more than money.

Doe Families  v.  Local School District

Cooper Elliott achieved a settlement that included significant rule changes in a school district.

Entine  v.  Lissner

Cooper Elliott obtained an injunction in favor of a student who was improperly prevented from having a service animal in her sorority house.
