Adam Cooper is an associate attorney at the New York City based personal injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg.
Part of Weitz & Luxenberg's Asbestos Litigation team since 2006, he has helped many asbestos-exposure victims and their surviving family members obtain deserved justice and needed financial compensation.
In 2013, Mr. Cooper was instrumental in securing a verdict worth a combined $190 million for five mesothelioma victims from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut (tried in the Empire State, this was the largest consolidated asbestos verdict in New York history and, for two of the plaintiffs, the $60 million each received represented what is believed to be the largest individual sums ever awarded in a New York asbestos case). Also in 2013, Mr. Cooper helped win $35 million for the family of a New York man who came to America from Croatia in search of a better life but instead died of mesothelioma. In 2006, Mr. Cooper was key to securing a $25-million verdict against Chrysler Corp. on behalf of a Brooklyn brake-repair specialist — a retired police officer — whose right lung was lost to mesothelioma.
