We work for working people.
If you suffer a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Our lawyers will provide compassionate guidance while aggressively pursuing compensation on your behalf in the form of medical coverage, pain and suffering damages, and money for lost wages or earning capacity. We may also seek punitive damages against the negligent party to prevent accidents or injuries to others in the future.
Would you like a fresh financial start? If you become overwhelmed with debt and are unable to pay your bills, consider filing for bankruptcy to stop your creditors from harassing you. Our attorneys can assist you in filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, giving you the firm footing you need to secure your financial future.
If you suffer an injury or contract an illness while at work, you may be unable to complete the duties of your job for an extended period of time. Our attorneys can help you obtain workers’ compensation benefits by advising you during the filing process. We will shoulder the load in your case, allowing you to focus on your physical and mental recovery.
Are you dealing with the unexpected loss of a loved one? Such a death can be especially difficult to handle if it was caused by someone else’s negligence. Fortunately, all states recognize the right to file wrongful death lawsuits. These are civil lawsuits that allow certain survivors to pursue compensation from the negligent party who caused their loved one’s death. An experienced lawyer at the Law Offices of Craig L. Cook can talk to you about your loved one’s case and explain the legal rights that you may have.
Although most people do not marry assuming that their marriage will end, divorces are quite common. Divorces are often complex and emotional, but a lawyer can help you take a step back so you can view your case with a more critical eye. In addition to divorce, our attorneys can assist you with several aspects of family law, including property division, child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support.
The criminal justice system can be intimidating, and a conviction could affect your freedom, your family, and your livelihood. Our attorneys handle major and minor crimes, from misdemeanors and DWIs to serious felonies. For legal counsel and guidance through the criminal defense process, consult with our attorneys.

Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When people are injured or ill and seek medical help, they place their trust in the hands of the medical professionals who treat them. Unfortunately, doctors sometimes make mistakes and cause severe injuries or fatalities to their patients. According to researchers from John Hopkins University, medical malpractice is a very pervasive problem. In fact, it is the third leading cause of fatalities in the U.S. An estimated 250,000 people die in the U.S. each year because of medical errors, and many more are injured. That’s why a medical malpractice lawyer can be so helpful. Suffering injuries because of the malpractice of your doctor or other health care professionals can cause worsened symptoms, permanent disabilities, or a poor prognosis. If you have been injured by medical errors, or your loved one died because of a medical mistake, you may want to talk to an experienced medical malpractice lawyer at the Law Offices of Craig L. Cook. We have more than 40 years of experience helping the victims of medical malpractice recover compensation for their losses.
Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing homes are supposed to be places where disabled or elderly people can go to receive skilled, compassionate care. Unfortunately, some nursing homes have earned bad reputations because of the prevalence of nursing home negligence and abuse. If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or abused in a nursing home, it is important that you take action quickly. The nursing home negligence lawyers at the Law Offices of Craig L. Cook have a collective legal experience of more than 40 years, and we are passionate about helping our clients keep their loved ones protected and safe. We will work hard to hold the nursing home at fault accountable for the negligence or abuse that has harmed your family member.
