Glenn Cooper, Litigation Chair

BETHESDA, MD (February 28, 2019) – Paley Rothman is pleased to announce that Glenn Cooper, Chair of the Litigation Practice and Senior Partner in the Family Law Practice, has been named the #1 lawyer in Maryland, by Super Lawyers.

Cooper, past president of the Montgomery County Bar Association and Bar Foundation, and past chair of the Maryland State Bar Association Committee on Ethics, is the first lawyer from Montgomery County ever to be rated as the #1 lawyer in Maryland. Cooper is also listed in the Top 10 lawyers in the District of Columbia in Super Lawyers DC for 2018, the last year for which D.C. ranking is available. He is a Fellow of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

Cooper receives this well-deserved recognition, not only for his service to the profession, but also for multiple and diverse subject matters in which he has changed the law through appellate advocacy.  However, his primary areas of interest in the trial courts are business disputes and complex financial situations and disputes involving business control and valuation and tracing in high net worth family law matters.
