About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

My law practice focuses on the areas of criminal defense, family law mediation and the preparation of wills, powers of attorney and advance directives. In my 20+ years in practice, I have handled litigation matters throughout Central Virginia; I appear regularly in the jurisdictions of Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield, Fluvanna, Goochland and Cumberland. Following my second year of law school, I served as a prosecutor in the City of Winchester; My experience in this capacity helped launch my legal career in the direction of litigation, with a specific emphasis on criminal defense.  I have spent the better part of the past 18 years zealously representing clients in Henrico traffic court, Fluvanna traffic court, Goochalnd traffic court, Richmond traffic court and Cumberland traffic court.

I never liked attorney's until James took my case and shattered the negative stereotype surrounding the profession. I highly recommend and trust him because he acted more like a friend then a lawyer.

James Cooke- Outstanding attorney for Criminal law in Ricomond and Henrico Va.
Mr. Cooke has gotten the best possible outcome in two cases in Richmond and Henrico courts. These were both criminal cases. He developed a realistic strategy and communicate realistic expectations. His affable nature gave him favor with officers, prosecutors and Judges. In both cases he negotiated the best available options in both family and criminal cases. His rates were excellent and he did not do a bunch of add ons. I can most highly recommend this lawyer without reservation.

Competent, honest and sincere
Mr. Cooke worked with me on a potential lawsuit and giving counsel concerning possible outcomes. He has a natural ability to drill into the facts of a case and quickly discern the most important aspects. He is honest, capable, and intelligent in his dealings with and dedication to clients. Easy to talk to and work with, and dependable in his actions and communications. I'd recommend him wholeheartedly.
