After earning a BA in political science from the University of South Carolina in 2002, Kathryn Cooper graduated from Southern University Law Center in 2009.

While studying at SULC, Kathryn was an active member of Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity. As a third year law student, she served as Tureaud Chapter Clerk and PAD mock trial participant. After graduating, she served as the District XVI Justice, supervising the law school chapters in Louisiana and Mississippi. As a participant in the clinic program provided at SULC, Kathryn participated in the Mediation clinic, learning to listen to the parties and resolve disputes before the matter appeared in court.

For 13 years, Kathryn served as a public defender with the 10th JDC Public Defender office. Kathryn has participated in numerous criminal jury trials. During this time she also maintained a private practice in family law. In recent years, Kathryn has won two cases with unanimous not guilty rulings (State v. Jackson and State v. Burks), the former resulted in a Blackstone's Order award for her tenacity in fighting for individuals' rights.

Kathryn joined Hesser Cooper Beckham Law Group, LLC in 2022 where she intends to use her years of experience to help in a variety of cases. Here, she continues to exhibit meticulous preparation for cases, professional demeanor in the courtroom, and the guts and grace required to achieve results for her clients.

"...Our future is not what ideological spin we put on what we do, it is already here in the present. It is young lawyers learning their craft and showing the hard work and artistry of trial work. The epitome is demonstrated by the talented Katie Cooper of Natchitoches...She exhibits the confidence and poise that make for greatness in our field."

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
