One thing that sets our firm apart from the competition is the fact that our sole focus is on personal injury law. Law partners John Cooper, Jim Hurley, Bill O’Mara and Griffin O'Hanlon do not split their attention between several very different practice areas. They devote their 50+ years of combined experience entirely to 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.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is not a factory firm where clients are seen as a way to increase our own profits. Instead, we view each client as a member of our own family and pride ourselves on supporting them the same way we would one of our own family members during a difficult time in their life.
