Meticulous in every detail.
Our trust was executed meticulously. Mr. Cooper showed us things we had no idea were equired. He lead us though the process patiently. The cost was not unreasonble at all. It was funds well spent to know our children would be spared so many hassles involved at such a time when we pass. Mr. Cooper is very detail oriented and works hard to do get the job done. My husband and I highly recommen him.

Efficient with good attention to personal detail
Michael prepared trust and wills for some fairly complex property, replacing an out-of-date, out-of-state trust. He worked efficiently and gave usable instruction for converting asset ownership to new trust. He helped with an amendment a few years later.

Excellent advice - Busy for a reason!
After spending an hour with this professional, I can confidently recommend him not only for his careful imparting of legal advice, but also for a rare quality of understanding and kindness. His desk was neatly stacked high with file folders, and I know these clients are in good hands. It only meant that he was too busy to take on my case, which he wisely ascertained was too large and complex to fit into his caseload. That did not stop him from taking (extra!) time with me to give me good solid direction, always explaining the limitations of his advice, without knowing the case more fully. He is an excellent communicator, and obviously listened carefully and patiently to everything I told him. I had a previous consultation with another lawyer that was a horribly frustrating experience, and it was so healing just to meet Mr. Cooper. I left his office not only with several suggestions to consider, but also with some excellent advice not to be too hasty to relieve the stress of the situation with so much at stake. Before we parted, I shook off the memory of a couple earlier tears with some shared hearty laughter, and a feeling like I'd made a friend. Thank you so much, Mr. Cooper.

Excellent!
I have gone to this office twice now and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I've been to many attorneys and they have a habit of taking over my head. Mr Cooper was on the phone immediately, went over everything in detail in a way I was able to understand it. I was able to resolve our problem quickly without it becoming a mess.

Michael Cooper is VERY Knowledgeable and Helpful
I was given Mr. Cooper's information on a recommendation from the Oregon State Bar (https://www.osbar.org/public/ris/). He came highly recommended for his knowledge in the area of commercial and residential contracts and lease agreements. I was able to schedule a consultation with Mr. Copper and he did not disappoint. His office personal was friendly and he was very kind, courteous, and knowledgable. He helped me and my partner look over a commercial lease agreement and gave us valuable suggestions and ideas that we can utilize as we move forward. He listened to our needs and made us and our questions / issues feel relevant and important. I had brought in a "home made" contract and Mr. Cooper took the time to give me constructive and positive feedback in a professional manner. I would highly recommend Mr. Cooper for anyone that is looking for legal advice regarding business, commercial, and/or property matters.

Knowledgeable and personable
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mr Cooper. He is very professional and experienced in a wide range of legal issues and, in pertaining to our needs, was very helpful in detailing information and suggestions in matters we hadn't considered and could prove useful. Plus, he has a great sense of humor which made our interaction that much more pleasant. We highly recommend Mr Cooper.
