I was involved in litigation related to a non-compete contractual dispute that involved dual litigation in California and New York. While initially i had tried to fight for the case to be heard in California, we ultimately failed in that effort, it was then that after searching online I came across Jonathan's website. If you've ever been involved in a lawsuit, then you know you're initially hungry for information. Jonathan's articles on the issue were quite clear in demonstrating his knowledge on the subject matter, and the style was also very easy to read. Upon an initial consultation, he came across as a very understanding of the situation and seemed confident that the situation could be handled based on the initial details on the case, which eventually led me to retain him as my attorney.
Without knowing much about how litigation goes, I've come to realize that notwithstanding a solid background in the legal principles behind your defense, knowing how to sell it to the other party is crucial. When it came time to actually sit down with the opposing party for mediation, understandably both sides were somewhat confrontational, but I felt Jonathan managed the pace and took control of the situation and just seemed more conciliatory - without knowing what went on behind closed doors with the other party, I certainly was happy to have him on my side than the opposing attorney defending the other party.
In the end, the settlement was more than satisfactory, and I could almost argue it to have been a win. Not to wish upon myself that I would ever need his services again, but if it came to be, and in particular to non-compete/trade secret/confidentiality issues, I'd definitely go back to him, and I would recommend him to anybody in NY in need of similar expertise.

Jonathan provided my company with wonderful advice and assistance in resolving a complex nuisance lawsuit by a former consultant. He was extremely competent and professional. He guided us through the process to achieve the most cost effective resolution without going to trial. I would highly recommend him.

Jonathan Cooper recently was recommended to me as an attorney after I was served with papers requiring legal action. He was able to reassure me that it would be handled and talked me through the entire process leaving me feel that I was in good hands. The case was taken care of and we were able to settle out of court.

I reached out to John based on an article he wrote on his website about non-compete agreements in New York. John provided the expert advice I needed to feel comfortable with a litigation involving my former company. He also made me feel comfortable that I did not take any malicious activity against my firm and as a result had very little to worry about. If you are in a sticky situation with a non-compete and you feel like your company is illegitimately bullying you around with your non-compete, John is the New York state litigation attorney to call.

Jonathan defended us against a lawsuit relating to a non-compete. He was professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I hope to never get sued again but if I do, I would call Jonathan before anyone else.

i had a problem with a tenant who rented office space and abruptly left without paying through her lease. Mr. Cooper handled this matter in a professional manner and was able to settle to my satisfaction.
