    Richard is a true professional and I can recommend him without reservation. In each case he keeps his client's best interests at heart and communicates with them in a thoughtful way that they can understand. Honored to have worked with him in the past and looking forward to it again in the future.

    I met Mr. Cooper when he was serving as opposing counsel on one of my cases. He was the utmost professional and challenged me every step of the way - all the way through trial. He displayed remarkable poise and was a staunch advocate for his client. He also achieved an excellent result and that seems to be what Mr. Cooper does for all his clients. I endorse this lawyer.
