Had a felony possession with intent to sell and was fortunate enough to hire Richard early enough for him to get the charges dropped before they were even filed. Maintained a confident, informed, and strong client through the whole process. Court ruled no action. Thanks again Richard.

I was looking for the right attorney based on my personal legal matters, so I scheduled an appointment with attorney
Mr. Cooper and let me tell you he was very knowledgeable and professional and answered all my questions and concerns that I had. Even answered me while he was out in vacation. I left his office with an incredible peace of mind and very glad that I can have him represent me in any legal matters from now on. I recomend him to anyone who has made a mistake in their life no matter how big or how small you can count on him to take care of it.

Mr. Cooper represented me for a very serious case with very serious prison time hanging over my head. Richard was able to fight the charges and got everything dismissed! He communicated with me every step of the way and I could always reach him on his cell. He truly cares for his clients and has a passion for his work. He is a very tenacious, fast thinker. Worth every penny! I would hire him again in a second.
