I was arrested for a DWI by very unprofessional cops. John tore apart the prosecution and had my breathalyzer evidence dropped due to coercion. John's skill and an incompetent prosecution led to my charges getting dropped. He's a personable lawyer who actually listens and fights injustice.
I was stopped for a DUI in Nov 2012. While I felt I was innocent and passed the Field Sobriety Test, the police officer arrested me anyway and I was forced to take a blood sample which came out much higher than the Legal limit. John was actually recommended to me by a friend and former District Attorney so I felt I was in good hands. John did an excellent job of reviewing the evidence, addressing the unique situations and fighting for my Legal rights. Through a very clear presentation and thorough examination and cross examination of the arresting officer, it became very clear that I was not necessarily in the wrong and my rights had been violated.
I will certainly recommend John to others based on his knowledge, legal insight, and savvy demeanor in a courtroom.
John did an excellent job defending me on a dwi case that involved blood evidence. Though he was ready to go to trial to defend me he was able to persuade a judge known to be difficult to allow a motion to suppress hearing separate from trial. This allowed us two opportunities to have this evidence removed from the case. In the hearing he destroyed the states witnesses by identifying many failures in the procedures that they followed. His attention to specific details in the arrest records allowed him to, in my opinion, make the witnesses look like bumbling idiots. Apparently the state thought the same and they quickly dropped all the charges against me. I would recommend him to anyone going through this nightmare.

Highly recommend by me . Hand down the BEST !!
I have known John Cook for almost thirty years and have always seen him strive for the best possible result for cases he handles. I recently recommended him to assist my son's roommate in the defense for his mother in a murder case. In what seemed like a hopeless situation, due to a taped confession, John Cook used his depth of experience and professional conduct to help both the District Attorney and the Judge get a clearer view of the totality of circumstances in the case leading them to use extreme discretion in sentencing with a result of probation for the single mother with a young child at home. To have seen the degree of empathy he gave the children in the family during this time of crisis not only gave me a feeling of confidence for recommending John Cook to them, but it made me proud to be a longtime friend of such a kind and understanding man.
I would not hesitate to call upon John Cook should the need ever arise within my own family for the help in any criminal matter. The unique perspective that John Cook brings to his job as a defense attorney, having been not only a criminal investigator and a criminal prosecutor, is invaluable for all clients. John Cook is a man of integrity, faith, and honesty.
I WAS LIVING IN FORT WORTH AT THE TIME MY DUI HAPPENED IN IRVING, TX. I HAVE AN EXECUTIVE POSITION WITH A LARGE FIRM IN DOWN TOWN FORT WORTH AND I NEEDED TO FIND THE BEST LAWYER IN TOWN TO RESOLVE MY ISSUE SO MY EMPLOYER WOULDN'T FIND OUT ABOUT MY CASE.
I RESEARCHED SEVERAL LAWYERS IN THE DFW AREA AND MET WITH 2 IN FORT WORTH BUT I WASN'T SATISFIED WITH THEIR PROFESSIONALISM AND APPEARANCE. I PLAY A LOT OF GOLF AT SHADY OAKS COUNTRY CLUB AND STARTED TO ASK SOME OF THE MEMBERS I KNEW ABOUT RECOMMENDING A DUI LAWYER. THREE PEOPLE RECOMMENDED JOHN COOK TO ME EVEN THOUGH JOHN WAS LOCATED ALL THE WAY IN DALLAS. THEY TOLD ME JOHN WAS THE BEST AROUND. ANYWAYS, JOHN GOT MY DUI DISMISSED AND MY LICENSE REINSTATED ! JOHN COOK IS A REGULAR GUY AND A VERY GENUINE PERSON. I'M GLAD I DID ALL THE RESEARCH AND FOUND HIM !
Mr. Cook handled everything very professionally and in an efficient manner. If I was ever in doubt about anything he would reassure me that everything would be fine. He has been in the business for many years and not just as an attorney, so he knows the different angles to handle a case. He is very easy going and really cares about his clients. I was not charged with DWI the two times I got arrested for them. I have sent anybody I know that gets arrested to him and I have never heard any complaints. Great attorney I would strongly recommend to anybody.
First time I needed an attorney so had no clue what to expect. Mr Cook kept me informed and positive through the case anytime I have a question or was worried about something I could text him directly and have a response fast. John Cook is an attorney that keeps up with all the new updates in his business to make the best choice for his client. My experance was great
By far the best In the business. Watching him.work.his craft was amazing and a exciting expirience. He has had success in all 8 referrals in west texas area. Please for ease of mind contact the best. John is the best. Tell him Lupe told u .
John Cook has represented me in times when I truly needed an attorney that knew what to do and how to perform. I can honestly say that his professional conduct, knowledge, and specific expertise, served me very well! He has a great sense of humor (helps to ease the stress a person may be going through), but is also a master of details and dealing with the court, the system, and opposing sides.
John has represented me 3 times, the first being in 2005. Although he was a man of few words prior to that first trial; when it did finally start, John was a true "junkyard dog", and went on an attack I have never experienced. He fought for 3 days and ultimately prevailed!
When people ask me for a recommendation for an attorney, that handles DWI or criminal cases, John Cook is the first and only name I give. I really believe that when I engage John, I have already won.
