Planning for Your Future
Cooper Powell, ShuffieldLowman
– The Sharkpreneur podcast with Seth Greene Episode 687 Cooper Powell
The unique challenges of the probate process are what drive attorney Cooper Powell. Growing up with a father in the real estate business, Cooper learned early-on the value of protecting assets such as property and in his law practice he makes it his job to safeguard these assets for future generations.
A Florida native, Cooper was born and raised in Oviedo, FL, attending Oviedo High School and then college at Lindenwood University-Belleville on a wrestling scholarship. While there he majored in Criminal Justice, graduating cum laude with his B.A. That program, especially work in mock trial competitions, motivated him to pursue his law degree from Southern Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale, IL. Once again graduating cum laude with his J.D. degree, Cooper also excelled in law school activities, including a regional championship in the American Bar Association’s National Appellate Advocacy Competition and champion of the SIU Intramural Moot Court Competition.
A former summer law clerk of ShuffieldLowman, Cooper is pleased to return to the firm and Central Florida to serve the community he loves. This includes volunteering with the Florida Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a cause that is especially meaningful to him.
Cooper’s prior experience includes legal research, work in municipal law, real estate, insurance defense and litigation trial preparation.
