My name is Amanda Cooper and I began my small practice as a solo-practicioner seven years ago.
My practice areas include Family Law, Landlord/Tenant Law, and General Practice. I have added two recent cases in each practice area below. Names have been changed to protect my clients' privacy.
In addition, I am also licensed to practice federally in the United States District Court of Massachusetts.
I believe that everyone deserves equal representation regardless of income. For this reason, I have accepted a number of Pro Bono cases and continue to volunteer my services through a legal aid clinic and The New Bedford Family and Probate Court.
If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Fixed (sometimes), Free consultation (30 minutes)
