  • After speaking with Mr. Cooper I knew he was who I needed to advise me. I cannot say enough about Daniel Cooper. He is absolutely everything you would want in an attorney. He is knowledgeable, responsive, fair, genuine, and he takes the time listen. He has responded to all my emails within minutes, even those late at night questions. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. The best advice I can give you is to give him a call and speak with him, as soon as I spoke with him I knew he was the person I wanted advising and representing me. He came highly recommended from a family member who is also an attorney. My family member has been impressed with Mr. Cooper’s level of service, knowledge of the law, and his rates and has strongly advised me to stick with him for any future needs I might have. If you are in need of an attorney this is the one you need to call, you will instantly understand why I recommend him so highly. The piece of mind I had immediately upon speaking with him was unparalleled. When I made my first phone call to Daniel I had never had to seek help from an attorney before. When I spoke with Daniel he was fantastic. He listened to my very long story, about an hour, and he reassured me that my situation was not unique, and he outlined what steps I needed to take and the different scenarios as to how the situation might play out. Over the next several months I emailed a barrage of questions to him at all hours day and night, which to my surprise he answered within minutes. He would even email me to check in and see if I needed help with anything or had additional questions if he hadn’t heard from me in a while. He genuinely cares about helping people in need of assistance. He is an attorney of outstanding character, knowledge, judgment and morals.”– Kim C.
