  • Amy L. Coryer

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Attorney Cooper and I have worked as opposing counsel on many cases. He is always professional and always was well-prepared. He presented his cases in a light most favorable to his clients and always secured excellent results for his clients. I have also worked with Attorney Cooper as co-counsel on a case and he has served as a mediator in many of the cases I've been involved in. He is always fair and reasonable and has excellent evaluation and negotiation skills. I highly recommend him.
