He offered to come to our home to see me.

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.
