Review of Patrick Cooper
Patrick Cooper handled a difficult divorce professionally, sensitively, and intelligently. Although it was difficult (my former spouse put up every possible roadblock), in the end I felt "whole" and that I had received what I deserved. He performed well in Court and kept me informed of what was going on. He was very thorough in his documentation and in requesting documents from me.

Child Paternity
Patrick Cooper represent me in a difficult and unique child paternity case. He was professional, kind and sympathetic to me as a man. He fought to get me the resolution I sought out for. I'm so grateful I choose Patrick Cooper to represent me. Also, his law partner and staff are very helpful and courteous.

Excellent lawyer and firm
Mr. Cooper has gone above and beyond for me and my children. For the last 2 years, I've had an ongoing child custody case and Mr. Cooper has been by my side to assist in any and every way possible. Pat or Joelle, a fellow attorney at his firm, respond immediately to calls or emails at anytime. They've guided me through a tough and challenging child custody case and made sure I knew all the options available to me to ensure the best interest of my children were met. I have and will continue to recommend Mr. Cooper and his firm to anyone looking for a top-notch legal counsel.

Great lawyer
My son came to Sadek & Cooper firm during a hectic financial situation. Mr. Cooper provided him several options that he could follow in order to resolve the case and those suggestions helped my son a lot.

Thank you sir
Mr. Cooper is a kind and attentive person. He listened each and everything I shared with him regarding my foreclosure and provided me several solutions. When I was being charged, he came up with new ideas of approaching the cases. My home is safe now. Thank you sir.

Good job
I am a very private person. So, I was more than stunned when the trial began and my life was torn in the court. Patrick Cooper was very understanding and offered me a very funny advice but it worked. I just play my favorite song in my head while the proceedings go on. It was very helpful.

Child Custody
I am happy to say that Patrick Cooper is by far one the best attorneys I have ever dealt with. He is very professional and worth his fees. Sometimes you hire an attorney and they sell you on this dream about your case and don't follow through but with Mrs. Cooper you feel relief the moment you speak to him. I am grateful for him and with a crazy situation like mine he has made this so much easier. I trust him and you should too
