About Our Firm

Robert Clayton Cooper

Originally from San Francisco, Robert moved to the District of Columbia in 1979, where he attended Howard University (BBA-Finance/Commerical Banking 1984), and George Washington University Law School (JD-1987).

Robert began his career as an attorney with the law firm of Jackson & Campbell, P.C., where he specialized in real estate transactions, litigation, and local administrative law, including zoning and land-use issues. Robert ended his 21 year association with Jackson & Campbell to open his own real estate/land use and litigation firm, Cooper & Crickman, PLLC in 2007.

In addition to pursuing his career in law, Robert is active in local politics, serves numerous civic and community based organizations, and provides aid and counsel to tenants and tenant associations in purchasing residential properties.

Robert recently served as a member of the District of Columbia's Housing Finance Agency, having been nominated by Major Adrian Fenty and confirmed by the District's City Council in May 2007. He was elected to serve on the National Conference of State Housing Associations (NCSHA). 

 Robert's primary mission is to increase the role and exposure of the District's Housing Finance Agency in those neighborhoods and communities that have, historically, been underserved by traditional lenders, with appropriate programming and products.
