About me

I grew up listening to the television show "Perry Mason" and trying to solve the mystery without ever seeing the characters or the action.  I succeeded most of the time.  It's what made me want to become an attorney.

    I have never met Mr. Cooper, but nine times out of ten when I go to answer a question from an Avvo user he has already answered it the way I would have. We obviously have similar views on criminal defense. I endorse this lawyer.
