Knowledgeable & Empathetic
I went through an issue with a potential employer. Posted a question on Avvo. Chris was the only attorney who actually read the entire content and provided his professional opinion accordingly. I ended up calling him for a consultation. Unlike other lawyers I had talked to, Chris really took his time patiently and spent 45 mins of his time talking to me for free. We discussed my problem and talked about different options. He even broke down what could be done step by step and what could possibly follow. You can tell that Mr. Cook is a quality attorney who gets the job done. He knows what he is doing and I highly recommend him to those experiencing discrimination at work place.

Thank you Attorney Cook. I’ll never forget that you took my call on a early Saturday morning when I needed a consultation and take charge approach. Thank you very much.

Informed and Professional
This concerned a storage unit/ client rights issue. Mr. Cook was responsive and personable. He provided a clear analysis of what measures might be taken to protect the rights of the consumer within the parameters of statutory guidelines. Highly recommend!

Excellence in knowledge
Christopher Cook is extremely knowledgable and explains a situation with such ease. He let me know exactly where my situation stood with no hesitation. He is pleasant to speak with and puts you fully at ease. Wish I had come across him when my situation first started. Trust me, if you're looking for an attorney you can't go wrong with him.

Great experience!
I am glad I hired Christopher Cook. I could had gotten in to a mess if I had not consulted with him and hired him. He is easy to talk to and accessible, as well as very knowledgable with business laws and real estate laws. I highly recommend him!

Ms
Mr. Cook is an excellent attorney. He was very attentive to my desires and responded quickly to resolve my issues. He interceded for me when I could not emotionally take on the challenges of the opponent. The resolution turned out in my favor and I received double the compensation than what I had expected. I recommend him highly.

Excellent Attorney
Chris helped me with a simple negligence matter. He contacted the party and had everything taken care of in a matter of days. I would recommend him to all of my friends.

Biased! Run Fast!
Mr. Cook misrepresented me to protect my seven year old daughter for a domestic violence case against the father for sexual abuse. He failed on every level to have my daughter’s therapist, doctor, or an expert witness show up. Even the judge questioned him. After I consulted with a competent attorney. All he had to do was have a medical records custodian sign off on my daughter’s medical records to have hearsay admitted in court. Mr. Cook didn’t even file my motions on time. I forever regret hiring, Mr. Cook. You did a terrible disservice to my family.

Response from Christopher Cook December 26, 2023
I am restrained from commenting on this case due to attorney-client privilege and the Florida Bar Rules of Ethics. I will say that the entire review is false. This client received the absolute best legal representation possible. Every single point she makes is a testament to her not understanding the law. I hope everything works out as it should.
