Best Attorney ever!
David was prompt and courteous attorney who handled my divorce from Shamar Garris. David is honest, hardworking, and will find cheating spouses who run from being served divorce papers for divorce! If you want the job done right… contact David Cook law firm. # I have receipts before separation … Great job David !❤️

Small town not
If you love a personable warm friendly lawyer that also is smart, professional and knowledgeable then David Cook is your guy. Sometimes in a smaller town you sacrifice expertise but this is not the case with David. He gets the job done to excellence. His team is also extraordinary. We wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Best Attorney I have ever had represent me
I came to David with what seem to me to be an impossible case with a DUI charge. David was able to speak with the Prosecutor and got the charge reduced to Reckless Driving! Amazing!! David's representation was actually a bargain!!! David Cooke will give you 1000% of his time and will really get to know you and the case and work hard as hell on your behalf! Thank you David Cooke!!

David Cook did got for me what he said he would try for. I was looking at 1-10 years and he got my charge lowered to a misdemeanor with time served. Awesome Lawyer.

Very Happy with Cook Law Firm
I had a good experience with this lawyer. He helped me with my divorce last year and I was happy with the results. Gretchen, his paralegal was great too. She was able to answer any questions I had and was very friendly. Mr. Cook showed up in court twice and met with me many times in his office. It's hard to get him on the phone, but you can always get an appointment to meet with him in his office. It is easier to email him than to call him. His schedule is very tight. Gretchen was always there to answer my questions though. His rate was reasonable. I found this page because I was looking for his number to use him again on a different matter.

Good job with my son's case
Mr. Cook did a good job representing my son in court. I'm the one who paid the fee. I was happy with Mr. Cook. His price was reasonable also. This is the second time someone in my family used Mr. Cook and we were happy both times.

Good outcome on my custody case
I really liked David Cook and his paralegals. I could call anytime and talk to the main paralegal and she answered all my questions and was very friendly. I met with David several times and he answered my questions. He also let me call him on his cell phone and text. David did a good job in court and I got the outcome I wanted. He worked with me on payments. He told me upfront that I would have to pay the guardian a fee and he said he thought it would be $500. It ended up being more, but it was because the guardian changed her fee. Overall I felt like he and the office staff listened to me and helped fight for me. I would use him again.

***WARNING*** make one of the best decisions in your life and DO NOT go here. One of the biggest mistakes I’ve made (I'm far from perfect, I know we are all human). Emails ignored, very rude and hateful phone calls. Demeaning conversations. I retained David Cook 3 years ago, I finally read some reviews and even spoke to some of his colleagues and fired him shortly afterward. I’ve never been in trouble and didn’t know the process from the start. Not once did I feel like Dave was representing me or had my best interest or had my back. His staff change constantly (which I can’t blame them). I could go into more detail, but I will save you the time. Like I said, **WARNING** do not waste your time nor your money. I’m not sure about you, but I work too hard for the money that I earn. When I go into an office, pay a large fee I feel like being treated as a client is not too much to ask. I am thankful that after several weeks of ignored email requests with persistence and only asking for financial statements, I subsequently terminated Dave about 2 weeks ago. Today I received 79% of my retainer back after discussions of going to the SC Bar fee dispute board. That is about the ONLY good thing I can say. Lesson learned; you get what you pay for. ****BEWARE**** - READ OTHER REVIEWS

Biggest CROOK you will ever meet
I paid hundreds of dollars for a simple letter of demand a 10 minute task. Its over 3 weeks and he refuses to do anything His retainer is written to guarantee him, you can not get your money back and does not he have to do the job you hired him to do. A TOTAL RIP OFF run from him.

A nightmare with this lawyer
Helping my sister handling an estate thru probate court. Very disappointed in both offices. The estate not closed after 8 years . ! Cannot trust Anything David cook tells us, he will tell you a deadline and 1 year later telling you another. This has been so frustrating ! He never does what he says he will---from one phone call to the next. I would NEVER have him as a lawyer if he did it for free. We have called him and pushed him NUMEROUS times even to be where we are today. BEWARE of David Cook!

hoping to save someone the money and not hire David Cook
I Paid 2000.00 upfront to get him to handle custody case and after he completely screwed up temp hearing and I only got split custody my child came home from her fathers house with burns on both wrists from being tied up. He said he will only help me if give another 1000.00!! he has called and cussed me out and told me how stupid I am for not knowing the law. Didn't show up to 2 of our scheduled meetings. Stuttered the whole time in court. Just don't waste your money.

Would not go to him again!
He has been my attorney for about 3 months after saying he could get my divorce over with within 4 weeks. Now he is saying it will take a few more MONTHS (which according to him should only take 3WEEKS). He keeps changing fees for things, won't do his job. I'm the one who is having to attempt to contact my ex. If I wanted to stay in contact with my ex, I would still be with him. That's what I paid Dave for.
