About me


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.
