Cooper Overstreet has spent his entire legal career practicing criminal defense. After passing the bar exam in 2014, Cooper immediately began representing clients in all manner of criminal cases. Since that time, he has represented hundreds of clients in many different types of criminal matters including misdemeanors and municipal court cases, to high-level felonies like rape, murder, and off-grid felonies. He has successfully resolved numerous felony and misdemeanor cases and received acquittals and drastically reduced charges.
Cooper has practiced in numerous jurisdictions throughout the State of Kansas. Additionally, he has advocated for clients directly in both the Kansas Court of Appeals and the Kansas Supreme Court. Currently Cooper is a member of both the Kansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer's, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Cooper shows his passion for client-based advocacy by working directly with individuals to ensure they are treated fairly by the criminal justice system.
In addition to criminal defense work, Cooper is passionate about social justice issues. This includes working with local advocacy groups to advance social justice causes, including criminal justice reform. In his free time, Cooper enjoys spending time with his family.
