    Mr. Cooney assisted my family in planning our estate. Not only was he thorough and professional, he was patient with us as we took our time getting him the necessary information. He explained everything to us and we will use his services/recommend him in the future.

    We had a situation where we needed to pay an attorney to write letters on our behalf, we were able to explain the situation to him and he responded quickly and obviously in the right course of action as we were refunded our money and able to get out of a lease.

    My husband and I decided to hire an attorney rather than write our will ourselves and we are so glad we did. We were enlightened on many issues we knew nothing about like healthcare planning. Mr. Cooney was a saving grace in this process!

  • Overpriced and Not Easy to Work With

    2.0 stars

    Mr. Cooney seemed very friendly and moderately knowledgeable at first. When I received my documents, they were clearly repurposed from previous work he had done and included various fonts and typos. Some obvious things that needed to be addressed were not. When I pointed this out, he got agitated and irritated. After I paid my bill in full, my follow-up emails were not answered at all. Caution.

    Mr. Cooney was very helpful and compassionate to my family when we needed someone to help us with some important issues right away. He got the job done quickly and efficiently, and the price was what I expected. Definitely got my money's worth.

  • Unresponsive and Overpriced

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Landlord & Tenant client

    I hired this lawyer to take care of a very simple matter that I could have taken care of myself had I not been leaving the country. He was obviously overpriced but I didn't have time to shop around and so we made a deal. Once I left the US and began emailing him to start the work, his incredible lack of response was astounding. Every email I sent, I had to resend a couple of times (maybe a week apart each time) before I got a response. And usually my third email would be worded to reflect how incredulous I was that I was getting NO response. Well, that was the biggest problem I had besides the fact that he was extremely over-priced for very simple work. This man DOESN'T CARE and doesn't care if you know it, either. Don't go to him if you want legal help.
