In Your Court to Fight for You

Rob was fantastic and very approachable. He kept me well-informed and moved things along quickly. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to other people. He did a good job standing up for my rights. It made me feel good knowing I could go to him any time.

Lynda

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,

Josephine

Hi Rob. Thank you so much for all your help. I’m pleased with the results! It was great to watch and listen to you in action. I feel fortunate to have you as a lawyer.

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!

Greg

Rob was exceptional. When we spoke with him, he really made us feel number one. Any time we came to see him he made us feel so welcome. He understood all of our needs and he worked so hard on our case it was unbelievable. He was able to settle our case pretty fast. If we knew someone else who needed a lawyer, he would be the first guy we’d recommend.

Jim and Dawn

I’d like to thank you, Mr. Robert Hooper, and everyone else at the Hooper Law Office for everything that has been done for me and to win my case. I feel relieved now that this long overdue case has now been settled and I can put this unfortunate accident behind me. Once again thank you for everything that has been done.

Patrick

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!!

Sonia and Maria

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,

TB

Hello Robert: I would like to thank you very much on behalf of my sister and myself for your efforts on her behalf and for your patience and professional guidance through this process. She has been through a lot, but this part of her journey was made easier by your empathy and understanding and your honest and realistic assessment of her situation. Thank you again,

John

Thank you so much Robert for everything you did for me. You’re a fantastic lawyer and friend.

Sheila

He’s the greatest guy I’ve ever met. When Rob was working with me he fought for me, literally. He was very thorough in everything he did. He made me feel comfortable and I would recommend him to my friends. Overall he was a very, very nice man.

Bogdan

Hi Rob: Thank you for all your help this past 3 ½ years. You’ve been great to me and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me to help me get through this. It was good to work with you and your office. Thanks a lot and I really appreciate it all.

Janice

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.

Edie

Rob was great. I initially had another lawyer who was totally unavailable and left me floundering. I fired that lawyer and met with Rob, and the difference was incredible. In the years that he handled my case, I couldn’t believe the availability – he came to my home in Dunnville if that was more convenient for me, he was really accommodating and sympathetic to my situation. I was so impressed with him that my girlfriend fired her lawyer and came to Rob too. She had a brain injury, so it was great to know she was safe and in good hands when I couldn’t be there. It’s rare to find a lawyer with that kind of honesty and integrity. He’s a good guy and he’ll fight for you all the way. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone. Choosing the right lawyer is the most important decision you can make. If you don’t like your lawyer, you have the right to switch – and you’ll never regret choosing Rob Hooper.

Vehicle Accident – Romanoski Estate v. Seburn

GH Law’s advocacy resulted in the Court finding that the woman fit into the arguably unclear definitions of “spouse” in the applicable legislation, allowing her to be compensated for the life-changing loss of her partner, even though their daughter had not yet been born.
