A Real Pit Bull
She helps make sure you get $$ not the aggravation of having to set up shared custody with your X. A real woman's champion!

Miriam Cooper is my kind of attorney
Miriam Cooper was very good with my case, kept me very informed and overall a great judicial (if possible) experience. She was very fast to send me documents and keep me apprised of the situation. Her office is also very digital in the fact that they would communicate with me electronically instead of snail mail. She was very responsive to all aspects of my case. I would highly recommend Miriam and her new attorney Vicky as well. If you need an attorney in the Barrington area I would give Miriam Cooper a call, she gave me a free consultation prior to me providing a small retainer.

Ms. Cooper, a great attorney
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Miriam Cooper! Divorce and child custody can be emotionally draining. However Ms. Cooper made the experience easier to handle. Her compassion towards me, her knowledge of the law, and the way she stood up for what I wanted were the perfect combination.
