Since then, Attorney Cooper has provided educational seminars throughout Ohio to spread the word about estate planning and elder law. He has helped thousands of seniors and their families find public benefits to protect and preserve their assets. Thom was among the first 19 attorneys in Ohio to become dually certified by the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF) as a Certified Elder Law Attorney and by the Ohio Bar Association (OSBA) as a Specialist in the Area of Elder Law. Additionally, he was among the charter members certified by NELF in 1995.

He has devoted a portion of his practice to assisting veterans and their surviving spouses, and been admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. He is also accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
