Edward L. Cooley

Practicing Law Since 1981

My name is Ed Cooley and I would like to thank you for visiting my website. I have been practicing law in Lexington, Kentucky and surrounding areas since 1981. Areas of practice are personal injury, criminal defense, DUI, nursing home abuse, and other areas such as automobile sales fraud, business disputes, and consumer protection among others.

My new firm name is now Cooley Iuliano Robey, PLLC.


Areas of Practice

Personal Injury

In matters involving a person being hurt or killed by the neglect of another, I help the injured person or the family of the deceased in all legal matters.

Criminal Defense

I represent people accused of criminal acts. My office staff is carefully selected to assure that everyone in my office is compatible with my goal of achieving full justice for the client.


As a part of my criminal and traffic practice, I represent many people charged with DUI, or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or both.

Nursing Home Abuse

One of the important areas of my practice is nursing home litigation. This is one of the areas related to medical and dental negligence which I also pursue.

Helping Those In Need

I decided at an early age that I wanted to grow up to be a lawyer. I wanted to be able to help those who could not easily help themselves. I can proudly say that part of me never changed. As a result, my law practice has evolved into a vehicle for helping those who might be considered "the underdog," or "the little guy." I enjoy representing people who are up against strong odds or what often appears to be more powerful opponents. In short, I like to level the playing field, or better yet, lead the victory of the powerless over the powerful. Whatever your legal need may be, please feel free to contact my office and let's decide how I may be of help to you and your family.
