Very professional and personable. Kim impressed me with her knowledge of the law; she was straightforward and very clear. She worked very hard for me and was able to have my case settle. If you want the best then you definitely want to hire Kim. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance over these past several months. You and Mr. Hooper have been such a great blessing to us. Thank you again!
Rob Hooper was so good that I would never use any other lawyer ever again. At the initial consultation he made me feel very comfortable and understood – I didn’t feel like I was talking to a lawyer in a suit. I could write you a full page on him, he’s awesome. I’ve actually referred him to a lot of other people too.
Mr. Hooper, my mom and I would like to thank you for all your hard work and dedication involved in her legal matters. You are a great person and will never be forgotten!!
Rob, I received the money yesterday for the settlement. I want to thank you for your help in getting it settled. I appreciate it very much. My other lawyer just wanted to drop it cause he said he couldn’t get them to come to a settlement. I am so glad David directed us to you. You have been amazing. Thanks again,
Good afternoon Rob, I just want to say thank you for all your work and time in settling my claim. I know it was very difficult given the circumstances. I am glad it has come to a conclusion. Thanks again,
Rob was extremely helpful and definitely went the extra mile to help me out. Rob and his staff were very compassionate towards my situation and took the load off my shoulders. He helped me get through the whole case – it was my first mediation and with Rob it was really easy. The whole process from beginning to end was very smooth and very stress-free. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future. Thank you, Rob!
