The challenges of a worldwide pandemic have changed us all; however, one thing that will never change, Hal Cook says, is “achieving the best possible outcome based upon a client’s unique needs.”
That legal philosophy has motivated Cook, the managing partner of Cook & Cossio, a multistate personal injury firm, for nearly three decades in private law practice.
Together with partner Whitney Cossio, Cook concentrates his practice on complex litigation involving negligent and inadequate security matters and medical malpractice cases in Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri.
Born and raised in Ohio, Cook began a law enforcement career after graduation from Kent State University, eventually retiring as an assistant director of public safety for Dallas County, Texas. The author of numerous publications still being used today in law enforcement training, Cook has appeared on television and radio programs regarding negligent security lawsuits and law enforcement agencies’ Use of Force policies. Cook’s background in law enforcement gives him a unique set of expertise to help victims in negligent and inadequate security cases.
As a life member of the prestigious Top Trial Lawyers in America Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Cook says that “the primary goal of their law firm is to get fair compensation for injury victims and their families.”
Cook is licensed to practice in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, Utah, and the District of Columbia, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
Now a full-time resident of “America’s First Resort City,” Hot Springs is considered home these days.
