Cooper Hurley Fee Shares and Carries All Litigation Costs for Attorney Referrals
Below is what we can offer you (and our future clients), making our referral relationships second to none:
Generous referral fees: We appreciate your referrals, and our fee sharing reflects it.
No litigation costs: We carry all litigation costs, and ask for no contribution from our referral sources. Recently, we’ve advanced costs of over $100,000, over $65,000, and over $40,000 on injury and wrongful death cases. It’s necessary, and you and our mutual client benefit from the investment.
Maximized value: Million dollar cases don’t just walk into your office - only cases with million dollar potential. Insurance carriers will not put top value on a case until a firm demonstrates that it is financially invested and all-in. Recently, we advanced over $100,000 in litigation costs on a single trucking case. The carrier noticed, and the offer reflected it.
Speedy conclusion: Delay is the enemy of our wronged clients. There is no reason to wait. We’ve found the best approach for catastrophic injury cases is to file suit immediately, get a trial date as quickly as possible, and press the case as hard as we can. We once concluded a case of contested liability for $5,000,000 in merely 15 months.
Customer service: High-end cases require top level effort and attention. You will only get positive feedback from clients you refer to us. We are grateful for your referrals, and remain dedicated to you and our clients.
Track record : We are experienced and skilled, and our case results prove it, but don’t just take our word for it.

The case resulted in a substantial recovery for our catastrophically injured client:
Now hear it from the client himself:
While we cannot guarantee results, we promise our dedication and hard work. We value your referrals and it means a lot to us that you trust us with your serious injury and wrongful death cases. You and our clients will not be disappointed. We look forward to working with you. Feel free to contact us at any time at (757) 455-0077.

During his career, he has tried more than 100 jury trials — a staggering number — and handled hundreds more that were settled out of court.

Jim has been awarded an AV Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating given, for his practice of law. He was named in Virginia Super Lawyers in 2014, 2015, 2016.

Cooper Hurley awards three $2,000 college scholarships annually to high school seniors in the Tidewater and Eastern Shore areas of Virginia. Eligible students can submit an essay of 500 to 1,000 words on the subject of Distracted Driving.
