Our Leadership

Robert (Rob) Cooper

“In the military, you don’t always get to see the mission come to fruition. Here, we do. We get to help people close really difficult chapters in their lives and move on. That’s really satisfying.”
As a paralegal, Rob Cooper supports the firm’s attorneys through case management, records retrieval and review, schedule coordination, and drafting and preparing documents for court filings. It’s a role that fits him well, fulfilling his natural inclination to serve and support others.

Having spent six years as a photojournalist serving in the Indiana National Guard both stateside and in Iraq during the Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom operations, Rob is profoundly aware of how difficult it can be to regain your footing after experiencing a life-changing event.

He says that one of the best parts of his job at Pavlack is talking to former clients and “hearing in their voice that a heavy burden has been lifted.”

Rob joined the Pavlack team in 2015 after completing his degree in paralegal studies at Marian University.
His excellent organization and communication skills make everyone’s job a little easier—including yours.

If you become a client of ours, look for Rob to guide you through the process of collecting the documents required by the courts during the demand and discovery phase. Seeing to it that we have the information we need to build your case is just one of the many ways Rob serves you and your Pavlack attorney.
