Mr. Cook was brought into my case by my other attorney to help. He qucikly became a huge asset to the team. The case pertained to police harassment. And the case went viral, " Texas dad arrested for stealing daughter's cell phone." Mr. Cook's knowledge of police duties and practices help to point out how they abused their positions. In court he is extremely attentive and quick witted. His ability to see through a witnesses story and point out the truth became invaluable. What could have been a long hard case to try became very short and won by a landslide. I can't thank Mr. Cook enough for his help with my case. His ability put me at ease and the whole process much smoother than it could have been.

I was referred to Mr. Cook by a reputable lawyer who is a friend. I was charged with minor in possession of alcohol and possession of marijuana. However, the marijuana that I was charged with was not mine and I should not have been charged with it. In addition, the entire search of the vehicle that I was in was an illegal search. Initially, I was confused since I had never been involved in any legal trouble. After meeting with John the first time, I felt much more confident in my chances and he assured me that he would work his hardest to ensure that my rights were protected. The DA offered me a really poor plea deal so I decided to reject it and take my case to trial. During the pre-trial hearing, Mr. Cook displayed a masterful set of skills in which he actually got both state witnesses (the cops involved) to admit that the search was illegal. In my opinion he completely embarrassed them on the stand. His meticulous attention to the details of the case were second to none. The next day the DA dropped the case due to a lack of sufficient evidence. Mr. Cook's professionalism and masterful approach makes him one of the best criminal defense lawyers in Dallas. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense lawyer.

A super tough lawyer with a heart of gold! I worked with John on a jury trial that ended up with a directed verdict in favor of our client.

John Cook is in the top tier of DUI lawyers in Texas as well as in the entire country. I was introduced to him by another well know DUI lawyer and since getting to know John he continues to amaze me with his courtroom and jury picking abilities. You can't go wrong hiring this man.
