Very Nice and Very Helpful
I met with Mr. Cooper after attending one of his legacy wealth planning seminars. His staff was exceptionally cordial and we were very well-treated. Mr. Cooper spoke with my wife and I about our concerns, and we hired the firm to create an estate plan for us. It is very comforting to know we now have a plan in place in case one of us is disabled. The plan will end up saving us quite a bit of money by avoiding probate as well. I'm also pleased the Cooper Law Firm has a program in place to review our plan annually to keep up with changes in the law.

Child Custody
I hired Mr. Cooper from an Ad on a spur of moment and he took my case right on. He helped me with a Child Custody order in which we won. I would recommend me to anyone and have in the past. He really listens and put the needs of my child first which is something rare, most lawyers in my eyes are all about the money and the wins. I would use him again anytime.
