Attorney Lance A. Cooper’s dogged investigation of the death of Brook Melton while driving a Chevy Cobalt has cost GM over $2 billion to date and has saved countless lives.

Attorney Cooper will be a keynote speaker at the SEAK National Expert Witness Conference to be held on April 25-26, 2015 in Washington, DC.

Attorney Cooper initially settled the lawsuit against GM and later upon learning about the cover-up rescinded the settlement.

At the SEAK National Expert Witness Conference Attorney Cooper will speak on Direct Examination: What Lawyers Want from Their Expert Witness.
