James H. Cooke, Jr., Esq.Bill Padding-Overcharging-Horrible Representation

Please take my advise as a former client of Attorney Cooke he will be detrimental to your case. He will not do the necessary research on your behalf thereby placing you at a disadvantage from the on-start. He will not prepare for any of your hearings placing a prepared opposing party at an advantage because he will not be prepared to fight for you. There will be no pre-trial preparations also putting you at a disadvantage. He will not prepare monthly statements so you can stay on top of where you are financially with billing and ultimately you will receive an extremely ridiculously high bill with little "real"work done by him or his staff. His timekeepers billing is so horrible resulting in many overcharges but you will never get your money back. His staff is ill prepared and lack basic knowledge and very rude and they do not even pretend to advocate for you. Basically, you're like a number not a real client just being moved right along and collecting your money. I regret not doing my research before retaining him so I am warning everyone reading this note to do your research and you will find several complaints about his level of representation which in my case was low, low, low the worse representation money can buy for my hard earned thousands of dollars. I do not have money to throw away but that is exactly what I did by retaining his services. If the opposing party has a good lawyer you are dead in the water he will make arrangements without informing you, settle or negotiate an agreement that will favor the opposing party all because he comes unprepared and not ready for the gun fight. Before hiring him do your research honestly, you are better off being a Pro Se. This is my opinion and reflects my experience. I am not telling anyone not to retain this attorney just a word of caution to do your research.
