    John Cooper helped me when I was seriously hurt when a truck hit a bus that I was a passenger on. I suffered a broken eye socket and nose. Throughout the process, John Cooper was very friendly. He offered to come to our home to see me. I was referred to John by another lawyer who recommended him as an attorney who specializes in personal injury cases.

    John gave me his home number. I would absolutely refer anyone to John Cooper for any kind of accident case.

    I heard about John Cooper from my union rep after I was hurt in an on-the-job. I'm so glad I was represented by Mr. Cpooper. He was straight-foward, honest, responsive, and extremely helpful. He did a great job of explaining complex legal terms in "layman's terms." Any question I had, he was available and responsive. I would hire Mr. Cooper again if I ever need a railroad accident injury lawyer.
