Berkeley Law Magazine Features Miles Cooley: From Foster Child to A-List Advocate
June 15, 2017
Partner Miles Cooley was featured in the Berkeley Law article “From Foster Child to A-List Advocate,” sharing his experiences as a foster child, which eventually led him to his success representing A-list celebrity cases, from litigating their cases to negotiating their deals. “I didn’t get a good shake as a kid,” said Miles. “Being a lawyer flows from my constant pursuit of justice back then.”
Miles also noted that the biggest misconception about representing celebrities is that it isn’t as glamorous as it seems. “While the profile might be a bit higher, you’re still dealing with the same legal principles,” Miles added. “Celebrities expect quality work and excellent results just like any other client.”
His advocacy on behalf of kids extends beyond the courtroom. As a regular at Berkeley Law’s annual sports law conference, Miles is developing an educational boot camp program that assists student-athletes for life after sports. Additionally, his extensive pro bono work includes helping non-profit organizations advocate for children in the foster care system.
