Battle-Tested
Counsel

James Cooney and Ryan Cooney are father-and-son trial lawyers with extensive experience in business and civil litigation. Whether it’s a breach of contract, construction lien, commercial lease or a rift in the partnership, we act swiftly to safeguard your interests and broker a practical resolution.
From years of litigating business disputes, we’ve seen the patterns of where things go wrong. We draw on those insights to advise clients on all facets of startup, contracts and transactions to foster commercial success and sidestep legal trouble.

Rescuing Distressed Businesses

The Cooney Law Offices has guided companies big and small through Chapter 11 reorganization, helping to present a plan to creditors and chart a course back to solvency. Or perhaps you are a candidate for a loan workout or out-of-court debt restructuring. We also regularly defend businesses in adversary proceedings in U.S. Bankruptcy Court over claims of fraudulent transfers or preference payments.

Many clients are owners or partners in a small business who are overexposed from personal guarantees for debts of the business. We help those owners (and other individuals) protect their assets both inside and outside of bankruptcy proceedings.
