Excellent Attorney
Before starting this process, I contacted 3 to 4 attorneys, and Jon was the only one who would take time to speak to me for more than an hour, and answer all my questions. He kept me updated throughout the entire process and filed my case in a timely manner. I am so glad I chose Jon as my attorney.

Hire this man!!
Filing for bankruptcy is a pretty terrifying financial decision but Jon was so helpful during every step. Hiring him made the entire process a lot less difficult than I imagined. He is very knowledgeable and was really flexible working with me on monthly payments. Thank you so much, Jon!!

10/10 would recommend
I came to Jon Cooper with more than just financial problems. I was simultaneously going through a job loss, a breakup, and I had recently just lost a family member due to covid. Ever since I stepped into his office, Jon made me feel understood, valued, he displayed empathy, and his confidence in my case and his professionalism gave me hope. Jon was thorough in his emails and instructions. He had a "can-do", go-getter attitude that reassured me that I had made the right choice in bringing my business to him. I have nothing but positive things to say about this attorney. The process was quick, smooth, clean, and my bankruptcy was discharged by the court and I got my life back in less than 3 months. I highly recommend Mr. Cooper and his firm for anyone that needs his services and I will continue to spread the word about my wonderful experience with him and his firm. 10/10 would recommend.

Bankruptcy Professional
Jon Cooper was very helpful with working with me on my Ch. 7. He explained the process very clearly, answered all my questions, dealt with all the issues I had going on related to my case and stayed patient throughout. He is very personable, and professional. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't hesitate to call him back.

Chapter 7
From the moment Jon (Mr. Jon Cooper) responded to my email inquiry (Chapter 7) late night on a weekend, I felt good vibes about working with him! Jon answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns prior to our face-to-face consultation. During the consultation, he made me feel comfortable that my bankruptcy case was going to be discharged without any issues. Despite his high degree of confidence in my case, I emailed and called him twice to cancel the bankruptcy process because I had second thoughts and felt that my case was going to adversely impact my family. Again, Jon reassured me that these items were not going to be issues. I am happy to share that my hearing with the trustee via Zoom went as smoothly as possible, and my $35K debt was discharged. Thank you for your great service, Jon!

Greatest Attorney!
As a proud Disabled American Veteran, (Naval Submarine Service) who has long since seen his days of service come to pass, I never expected to, metaphorically speaking, have to fight another "battle" here on my country’s home-front: Surviving day to day as a senior citizen, with overwhelming medical bills, on a fixed income. Sadly my wife of many years fought this struggle with me. Together we sought the help of a man who changed our lives forever. Because of our emotional victory, I felt compelled to write this review. It cannot be overstated that Attorney Jon Cooper at San Diego Legal Pros is the most stellar Bankruptcy Attorney, in all of San Diego. After months of agonized hunting for an experienced Attorney to rescue us from our financial predicament, without adding to our money woes, we narrowed our search to those offering the most reasonable rates. While Attorney Cooper certainly filled that qualification, we never expected this fine gentleman would give us something we never realized we needed even more than just an affordable fresh start: Our dignity. From the moment we retained him to the miraculous day we received our final discharge papers, Attorney Cooper treated my wife and me with a blend of compassion and respect, by taking into account our fear and embarrassment. His ease of expertise, professionalism, and unparalleled interpersonal skills made our financial recovery a painless one, giving us closure to a darker past, & opening the door to a brighter future. Please… save yourself the time, money, and heartache of looking for a better B.K. Attorney, because you won't find one; (Except in his team of fine Associates at Legal Pro's, who clearly share his high ideals.) In short, Attorney Jon Cooper gave my wife and me something we hadn't felt in years: HOPE. So even in the wake of our world's health crisis, we've never felt stronger.

Jon made me feel at ease about a difficult situation. I was able to make my payments in installments rather than one huge payment. He guided me step by step through process and answered all of my questions so that I could understand them.

Jon is the best!
Filing for BK is probably one of the hardest decisions one can make. And finding the right attorney to assist with the process can be a daunting task. Luckily I found Jon Cooper after a short search. Jon was very understanding of my situation and was very attentive to answering my many MANY questions throughout the process. He took the stress out of filing and I would recommend him highly for an easy painless stress free BK filing! Thank you Jon!
