I have known John Cooper for more than three years. I respect his abilities as a personal injury attorney in the Hampton Roads area. He is very well respected in the community and one of the best attorneys in his field. He's a trustworthy individual who works very hard for his clients.
John Cooper is an outstanding citizen and respected member of this community. I have had the privilege to serve with him on the board of directors of our house of worship and found him to be ethical, moral and understanding
Thanks so much to John Cooper and his law firm for their steadfastness and confidence in helping me with a wrongful death case. If it had not been for the help of John Cooper, I might have given up because of the difficulties surrounding my sister's loss of life. I was extremely happy with the outcome and the patience and endurance which John showed in overcoming all of the obstacles. John's assistants, especially Kelly, were outstanding and often reassured me by saying "Don't worry," that they had everything under control. I will definitely recommend everyone I know to them for a personal injury case.
John treated me with respect. I would hire him again.
I suffered an injury from a car accident. A personal friend referred me to accident attorney John Cooper. I was impressed by how thorough John was and he always called me back. John was very nice and treated me with respect. I was pleased with the outcome of the case and would hire John again if I ever need an injury lawyer.
When my son and I were hit by a drunk driver, I hired John Cooper instead of using my company's prepaid legal service because I knew John had extensive experience with injury cases.
I was glad I made the decision because John treated us like family throughout the whole case and I never had to worry about his support. He made sure I got the best treatment for my lower back injuries before we settled with the insurance company.
I was very satisfied with the process and outcome of my case, and I would definitely contact John if I ever needed another personal injury lawyer.
I hired John Cooper to handle a personal injury case when I got hit from behind and injured my elbow. John had represented my wife in an earlier car accident case and had gotten hera good result.
I was impressed with John’s persistence when that he advised me to reject the paltry sum offered by the insurance company who refused to handle the case fairly. Once we filed suit, they got serious and offered a reasonable sum and the case got settled to my satisfaction.
I was very pleased with the way I was treated by John and his staff and would return to them if I ever needed a car accident lawyer again.
I was really happy with the work that John Cooper did on my auto accident case. We went to mediation and got the case resolved for a good amount which will let me do things to help my financial future like buying a house. During the entire process John kept me and my family informed about what to expect and what I needed to do. I am really glad not to have to go to trial and think that the reason we got such a good outcome was in part because of my lawyer's hard work in getting ready for mediation and forcing the insurance company to be fair.
The way I selected John Cooper as my injury lawyer was that my Dad who used to work for the railroad knew him and his firm. In fact, my Dad had recommended various people to that law firm including some very severe accident cases. When the lady ran into my work truck not far from our home in Hanover County, Virginia, my mother and father were there at the scene and saw me all banged up and unconscious. I ended up spending 5 days in the hospital and had to use a walker and crutches to get around because of broken bones in my hip and back for several months. One thing that I liked is that the attorney spent enough time with me and my family talking about the injury and making sure that I knew my legal options. There were a lot of different issues that the lawyer knew how to manage having to do with the underinsured motorists coverage, worker's compensation insurance, and dealing with paying the big medical bills that I had from the hospital and the doctors. I really felt like John Cooper was looking out for my best interests in the lawsuit.
I used John Cooper as an attorney in the past six months. He handled a wrongful death/truck accident case. I had previously worked with one to two lawyers.
I was very happy that John Cooper handled this wrongful death case for my son, whose father was killed in a truck accident. John really took the time to listen to me and what I was concerned about. By the end of the case, I really felt like he was, not only my trusted lawyer, but also my friend.
I was recommended to John by another attorney that my husband knew. That attorney said that John Cooper was the lawyer to hire for any big, important injury case.
I felt that John and his office let me know at each step of the case, what was going on with the lawsuit. He made sure that everything went smoothly in dealing with the insurance company and the other lawyers. John made me feel like mine was the only case he was working on, though I know he is very busy with lots of cases.
I knew what amount of money I thought was fair going into the mediation. I was happy when John was able to get my son, not only the amount of money that I was looking for, but even more. Even after the case was settled, I continued to hear from John and he seemed to take a genuine interest in trying to help me and my son.
John helped us in a case involving a railroad injury and we were very satisfied with the results. John was prompt, coureous, and very professional. The entire team at Shapiro, Cooper, Lewis, & Appleton was very nice and helped us a lot. We would use John's legal services again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to others.
