Unprofessional and Incompetent by
Recent Client -
Shows up for court unprepared, does not communicate and when he does it's misleading. I provided detailed support documents which he never addressed in court. When confronted he blames his staff. Will make all the promises in the world and delivers nothing. You're better off representing yourself.
The Pot Calling The Kettle Black by
The other 5 star comments by "Babygirl" and "From VA" are actually Atty Bryce Neier. It's actually hilarious and ironic. Neier makes Cooke look like an alter boy, in need of mental help. They're both wiped out of the same pig's rear end.
WOW! Way off Base by
All of you that are sitting here complaining. Your lawyer is only as good as you allow them to be. James Cooke is in the top 5 family attorneys in Cumberland County. If you are not honest with him and give him the vital information that he needs, he can't do his job properly, Also James is an amazing guy. I got everything out of my case that I wanted. I am a women that was give sole custody of my daughter and everything that I asked for. Do not sit here and bash someone on a public forum. You guys have no idea what you are talking about.
JAMES COOKE RIPPED ME OFF OF 3,000 by
PLEASE DO NOT HIRE JAMES COOKE BECAUSE HE RIPPED ME OFF. HE NEVER RETURNS PHONE CALLS, HE NEVER SHOWED UP ON COURT DATES, AND WHEN THE CASE WAS OVER HE DID NOT RETURN ANY MONEYS THAT WAS DUE BACK TO ME. I DIDN'T RECIEVE COURT NOTICES AND WHEN THERE WAS A COURT DATE I HAD TO CALL HIS OFFICE TO INFORM HIM. YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR MONEY AND MAYBE YOUR CASE.
Not Worth the Money at all by
Ripped Off -
Mr. Cooke is not worth the money and a complete waste of time. I hire him for a divorce case. I am in NC and she is in another state which was explained in the first meeting. He was told not to send a certified letter because she would not sign for it and to serve thru law enforcement. He did not, she did not sign this was in July, in Oct I called him to find out status of her being serve, he says I need to talk to you about that. Mr. Cooke had the never to say that I gave him the wrong address to a house that I have been paying on over ten yrs. To make a long story short Mr. Cooke has no idea on what to do when it comes to divorce when some else is in another state. Six months wasted just to hire another in her state that knows what to do. Do Not Hire this Lawyer, you will be wasting time and money.
Cooke did OK for me. My ex really fought to make my life hell, and he didn't do much to stop her. I unerstand that you can't always run into the courts complaining about the significant other. But sometimes you have to have the balls to tell a judge that there's too much BS and one of the parents needs slapped. IDK what everyone else has dealt with but I would not use this guy if you have someone who's going to fight back, or just make your life suck.
Cooke the thief by
poor and broke -
I feel yur pain I'm going thur the same some how he has lied to the courts and they take 3/4 of all I make to give to her , I don't mine paying child support. But fair is fair
I am a MALE who currently uses Mr. Cooke. He has done absolutely nothing for me. . My ex received everything she wanted and I received all bills and child support that I cannot afford.

Mr Cook has worked wonders for my case, I had one other other lawyer in Fayetteville how hung me out to dry. Mr Cook and his Staff is just Great. I live out of state and each and every one them listen to me and take the time to prepare for my case as needed. Mr Cook and his staff is a God send to me. Thank you to Mr Cook and his Staff From your VA Client. You all know who I am
I know Jim Cooke by
Bryce D Neier -
These reviews are way off base. A buch of whiners which is typical of most domestic clients. Jim works pretty much round the clock, and he does not favor one gender over another. Abusive staff, you must be joking...I have dealt with his staff on a weekly basis. they are polite ane quite responsive.....he gets things done...maybe you need to get realistic.
