David represented me a couple times in custody hearings in 2012 and 2013. He helped me retain majority custody of my child. As a man, he respected my bond with my child and became very knowledgeable with my child's needs and my needs. I have a profound respect for his abilities as an attorney and professionalism. He definitely works hard to know his clients well.
I recently used David cook for my custody case and he was the best you could ask for. Very well organized, made sure I was completely comfortable and prepared for being in the court room, made sure all of my witnesses were prepared and the fees were very reasonable. Legal terms, circumstances and the process can be quite confusing but David was able to make sure I could understand the entire process start to finish. The outcome after the trial was certainly in my favor and if I ever had to do it again I wouldn't use anyone other than David.
David was on the ball from day one with my custody case. He jumped right in and gave me the guidance I needed to gain custody of my daughter. I had so many questions for him and they were all answered immediately which was comforting in a stressful situation. He was also very honest and told me when certain things were unnecessary. As a result I now have the time that I deserve with my daughter.
Attorney Cook prosecuted my rapist and as a result, the jury unanimously found him guilty of 7 out of 7 charges in less than 3 hours. Facing my rapist in court for a week long trial was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, and the months prior to the trial were particularly difficult as well. My case was not black and white and wasn't necessarily a strong case; there were no injuries and no weapons used. Nevertheless, Attorney Cook treated me with respect and took his time making sure I understood the upcoming court procedures and the law. He did an unbelievable job pointing out important, incriminating details that the prosecutor following Attorney Cook failed to recognize. His confidence, undivided attention and support are what got me through the trial, and his knowledge, compassion and experience are what got my rapist a guilty verdict on 7 charges. He went above and beyond to make sure that my rapist got the punishment he deserved, while making the long, stressful court process as easy for me as possible. Attorney Cook is by far the best, most experienced and knowledgeable attorney that I have ever had the opportunity to work with and I would trust him to resolve any matter that I may come across.
Going through a custody battle was one of the hardest things to go through in my life. Attorney David Cook from the day I spoke to him regarding my battle was passionate about my concerns. There was no question that I needed to retain him for my legal representation. For the 3+ months through the process Attorney Cook was diligent and driven. He addressed all of my concerns in a timely fashion and brought so much more to the plate than any other Attorney I have interacted with in the past. Best of all he was able to win the case for me and my daughter. Any one looking for compassionate, understanding and driven legal representation Attorney David Cook is the only choice.
