I would recommend Brooks Cooper with the highest rating. My situation was the result of the actions of a disgruntled and vindictive ex-in-law who felt that they were entitled to inherit and in the end, got zero. Brooks has an aura of confidence that is contagious and I felt great about my choice from day one.

I was referred to Brooks by my will attorney. My husband's ex was contesting his will, then she filed a civil suit against me. I'd never been to court before or had taken a deposition. I was very naive regarding this process. I was devastated that she thought I had done something dishonest. Brooks was great to have on my case. He explained every step of the process and made me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. He talked to me at my level and made it easy to understand what would happen in my case-filings, timelines etc. He's professional, organized, knowledgable, and has a great sense of humor. He always tried to keep costs down where it makes sense. Email vs phone conversations as an example. The ex finally dropped the case before going to trial, after a year. This was due to Brooks persistent stating of the facts, reciting past cases, and his constant contact with opposing counsel, witnesses and depositions. I was amazed at Brooks patience with opposing counsel. Who was very unprofessional. There was never a time that I felt Brooks wasn't working on my case. He always provided updates. I would have liked to see Brooks in action in court, but so very thankful my case is over. I would highly recommmend Brooks. He'll do a great job for you.

Brooks did a fantastic job representing us in a commercial/civil case. We would highly recommend him.

A friend introduced me to Brooks when I was going through a divorce, having never been through a divorce or having never needed the services of a lawyer before I was a bit of a mess. Brooks explained how the family law process works, spoke to me like I was a human and acted like he was nothing more than a best friend throughout the process.
I survived, I'm a single dad of 3 & I can't thank Mr. Cooper enough.

I was referred to Brooks Cooper from a very well know and respected divorce attorney. My needs were related to an issue regarding my deceased ex-wife and her estate. The estate took over three and one half years to close to give you an idea of the mess involved. Without having Brooks Cooper in my corner, our daughter's needs would not only have been disregarded, but she and I would have suffered a tremendous financial hardship that would havce lasted for years. He treated our business relationship very personal and I felt like I was his only client. He doesn't have just one strength, he has many. Knowledge of the law is one thing, but being able to present it in a convincing way in a trial is a skill that very few have.
Trust me when I say, I will never forget the value that Brooks Cooper brought to my life during a very difficult time!

Brooks helped us in a litigation case regarding software, contracts and intellectual property. He talked us off the ledge a few times and through hard work and diligence, we prevailed.
Brooks was helpful, informed and effective. Very pleased and would highly recommend him and his services.

Mr. Cooper handled our case with the utmost professionalism. He was informative and helpful leading up to the trial and then he really shined. In the court room we were all very nervous and his calm confident demeanor gave us reason to relax. During the trial the other lawyer was trying to turn the case into a fiasco and Brooks made him look like a bumbling fool. He stayed focused and right on track right up to the point that we prevailed. Mr. Cooper took our case as a favor to a friend and it was not in his scope of expertise. But one would have never known that by watching him work. I will recommend him to everyone I know that needs an attorney.

Ethical, reliable, trustworthy, exceptional, thorough, outstanding, direct, professional and personable are the adjectives I would use to describe Brooks Cooper. He was my attorney for one and a half years, in a very difficult case. When my husband suddenly died in 2009 I continued with his family law attorney. After a year with this attorney I discovered I needed a litigating attorney as well as an honest and ethical one, so I hired Mr. Cooper. I appreciated the fact that Mr. Cooper did not take advantage of my situation. His billing was fair and he kept his costs to a minimum.
My court case was very complicated, at the time I hired Mr,Cooper the plaintiff had gone through five attorneys, accused me of all kinds of dishonest activities. When Brooks took over my case, he kept me focused on the facts, always researched other past court rulings and explained how they pertained to my case. He wouldn't let me get side tracked by what the plaintiff's attorney would try to throw at me, The past two plus years I have gone through hell, dealing with my husband's death, and being sued by his ex who felt she was entitled to his 401K. I contribute Brooks sense of humor, his knowledge of the law and his confidence as to what gave me hope and eventually a win.
I will never be able to thank him enough for all he did, He is the best. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to win their case. Thousands of thank you's to Brooks Cooper.
