The Cooper Law Firm handled an employment/class action lawsuit for me. I was initially a bit weary, considering all the negative stereotypes that revolve around lawyers, but I need not have worried! From the very beginning, Scott was nothing but kind and courteous, and he explained each step of the legal process and answered all of my questions with patience. My case was handled with smooth precision, and I was very happy with the results. Last, but definitely not least, Scott's legal assistant, Andrea, was always very prompt in answering any questions and putting me in touch with Scott, and she was always very warm in her interactions with me.
