Your Injury, Our Fight!
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is a fast-growing personal injury law firm based in Norfolk Virginia. Jim Hurley and John Cooper set up the firm. Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers recently appointed a third partner, Bill O’Mara and fourth partner, Griffin O'Hanlon. The attorneys only take on personal injury and wrongful death cases. We don’t represent criminal defendants like drunk drivers who hurt our clients.
Our job is to take care of all of our clients’ legal needs when they are injured in a car, truck, motorcycle, railroad, or bus accident. Our client’s job is to get better from the injuries that they suffered in these accidents.
We also represent people who are hurt at businesses, or by dangerous drugs or medical devices, as well as families of those who lost a loved one due to the fault of another.
Jim Hurley has been practicing law throughout Virginia for almost three decades. His dedicated legal team has worked for him for two decades combined. He is also licensed to practice law in Florida. During his career, he has tried more than 100 cases — a staggering number — and handled hundreds more that were settled out of court. He is guided by the principle that the client is in charge of his or her case and should be kept fully aware of the details of the legal process. Jim Hurley holds a top AV Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating given, for his practice of law. He has been named in the Virginia Super Lawyers list since 2014 and holds many other accolades.

Virginia Super Lawyers, 2014 - 2019.
You have many choices when it comes to personal injury lawyers in Hampton Roads, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, or further afield. This can make choosing the right attorney seem overwhelming. While there are many options, it is important to remember that not all personal injury attorneys are capable of offering the same level of experience and dedication to one area of the law, nor are all of them able to prove their skill with a wide range of verdicts and settlements.
It can be difficult to secure a personal injury settlement or verdict. It’s important to hire a lawyer who won’t simply cave into the insurance company. You should hire a devoted personal injury lawyer who knows how to effectively argue for the other party’s complete liability, pursuing the maximum settlement you are owed for your injuries.
Why Choose Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers?
One thing that sets our firm apart from the competition is the fact that our sole focus is on personal injury law. Personal injury attorneys John Cooper, Jim Hurley, and Bill O’Mara do not split their attention between several practice areas. They devote their 50+ years of combined experience entirely to the intricacies and complexities of Virginia personal injury law. This specialization enables us to stay on top of all changes in the Virginia Code and Supreme Court cases, using our knowledge and up-to-date familiarity with Virginia law to our clients’ advantage.
A look at our client testimonials page will also help you understand why Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers has been the standout Norfolk personal injury firm for many residents of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News, Chesapeake, and elsewhere in Virginia.
