The entire team at fielding law was amazing! They helped me during a very difficult time after a car accident. They stayed in touch and moved things along and settled my injury case for the maximum amount. What a great team and they made the experience pain free, while I was going through all the pain from the car accident and injuries I sustained! I would highly recommend fielding law.

Great team
I contacted Sweet James Inc after an accident where I couldn't get connected with my own insurance. The team they sent out to speak to me were very reassuring and helpful to let me know how wrong things went. Everything they said and predicted were true but I had them on my side to deal with my own car insurance and the other party. I got treatment for my injury as well and everyone was communicative through the process. I was truly grateful because at first I didn't think I would need help and am really glad I did. Mr.Cooper and his team were great.

Motorcycle Accident
Ryan was phenomenal in handling my case! Cards were stacked against me (wrongfully) and Ryan was able to perform magic getting everything reversed and helping me win my case! Amazing guy to work with and very transparent. He tells it like it is and will exhaust every avenue possible to ensure there is nothing left on the table.

They handled every aspect of my case and provided me frequent updates which took the stress off of me. Ryan is committed, empathetic, friendly, and knowledgeable.

Excellent service, support and results!
I was a victim of a car accident in February 2021, the other driver ran a red light and crashed my life! I suffered from 2 fractured vertebrae, bruised ribs and my car was destroyed. My life was turned upside down in a few seconds! Ryan was supportive, listened to me, understood what I needed. We had to go after my own car insurance for the under-insured driver situation. They were not happy nor willing to help! Ryan helped me create a document in which I listed ALL the negative impact on my life from the pain to not being able to hold my granddaughter! He also organized a meeting with my insurance lawyer as he thought that if they could see me, hear me and get then a better picture of who I was and what I was going through, that it would help in the decision process. Ryan and I practiced before the meeting because as he explained, the other lawyer would be ruthless as part of the game. I am so glad that we prepared well because indeed, the other lawyer was tough, demanding and insisting on getting a lot of details! During that whole time, Ryan was supportive, and his presence really helped me go through this ordeal. I was shaken afterwards, but Ryan was confident that we did accomplish a necessary step. 2 weeks later, the insurance told us that they will cover my needs at the maximum amount; the meeting really paid off and we did not have to go any further in the legal process such as mediation and/ or court. My situation was resolved within a year from the accident. From what I hear from other people, this was quite a fast and efficient process. I can only strongly recommend Ryan Cooper for great services and real results. It was so important to feel that someone was in my corner as I was emotionally and physically down, that someone was helping and making sure that I would get what was rightfully due to me.

I couldn't be more grateful for Ryan and his team!
Ryan was professional, timely, sincere and communicative every step of the way. I've never worked w/a lawyer who cared as much as he did. Navigating a litigation was scary, however, Ryan was there every step of the way and continued to put my mind at ease by keeping me focused on the case. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to friend or family. I can't thank him enough for helping me win my case. Thank you Ryan, I really appreciate what you did for me and my family.

Would recommend Ryan to anyone.
I consulted with Ryan due to a car accident my boyfriend had in my work vehicle which was a rental- Real tough. He was quick to reply and provided me with all options I had without making it confusing. His integrity and honesty truly are a testament as to why he is so well reviewed and recommended. He answered all my questions thoroughly and I left the conversation feeling more knowledgeable about car wrecks, insurance, etc and was able to make an educated decision about how to proceed. I would recommend Ryan to anyone seeking a lawyer who truly cares about making sure his clients see the best outcome.

Thank you!
Ryan and his team helped me and my wife Natalie tremendously with our claim after an accident that involved injuries. We were kept in the loop throughout the whole process and always updated right away when anything involving our case was going on. Ryan was quick to answer any questions we had and was very professional throughout the whole process. I noticed that Mr. Cooper went the extra mile in our case and that he shows care and compassion for his clients. I would without question recommend Mr. Cooper and Fielding Law Firm to anybody that needs a lawyer for a car accident, injury etc. Thank You Derek & Natalie

Excelent lawyer
Ryan and his team were there for me through a tough process, I got rear-ended on my way to work and I was not sure of what to do or where to go after such horrible accident. Ryan's team handled all the paperwork, dr's paperwork and followed up with the whole process. They were a breathe of fresh air on several occasions when I only needed some reassurance that all things will be well again. They made the process very smooth and made my recovery stress-free. I thank them for their patience with me. I thank them for keeping me updated on a continuum about where we were with my case. I highly recommend his firm. Ryan is a competent, kind and efficient attorney to handle your case.

Outstanding Attorney
I met with Ryan on a few occasions who was handling my grandmas accident injury case. Ryan was very understanding, empathetic and kept us well informed about the progress in my grandmas case. We were very happy with the settlement for my grandma, who is in her mid 90’s. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience
I enjoyed my experience fielding law. Savannah was my main source of communication and is such a sweet heart. She wasted no time. They got me the medical attention I needed and was able to reduce my hospital bills and put a little money in my pocket. They were very consistent and understanding during the process. I recommend 100% 10 out of 10.

Accident Injury Recovery 2021
Ryan was a terrific leader of my accident injury case settlement. He quickly aided my case progression by coordinating medical expenses reciepts and insurance informations to help me reach my settlement agreement with directions through Fielding Law Firm's court action that I needed for injuries from my accident. His image is a stong representation for his character for me as his successfulness with my case recovery and forward procedures with legal action to meet critical times frames before dates of certain closures was done by very punctual legal action and immediate attention from consultation to settlement documentation. I am grateful to say I anticiapte a successful future for myself with Ryan's legal leadership.

Choose Fielding Law
Ryan Cooper and the entire staff of Fielding Law Firm were amazing to work with. After getting hurt in a car accident, the other insurance company was being extremely difficult. As soon as I signed on with Ryan and team, all that changed immediately. I saw a doctor, got a rental car while mine was being fixed, started physical therapy to get treatment, etc., and it was all arranged by Fielding Law. After it was all said and done, not only did I actually feel better from the PT, and my car was fixed up, all with no money out of pocket, Ryan was also able to get me a settlement covering all expenses plus more. If I ever have a need for representation in the future, it will absolutely be Fielding Law.
