    The Cooper Law firm does exceptional legal work. Their analysis is thorough and solutions are creative. I have witnessed their strength in aggressive negotiation of settlements. Their victories at trial make opponents eager to compromise before a trial starts. They have a reputation as strategic and fearless in challenging their opposition and are skilled at presenting clients' positions to judges Their commitment to justice and civil rights has been an integral part of their achievements. As both a client and a colleague, I whole heartily recommend them.
