Attorney John Cooper is named in Virginia Leaders in the Law List
Congratulations to John Cooper, a founding partner of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, who has been named in the 2019 class of “Leaders in the Law” by Virginia Lawyers Media.
The media company, the publisher of Virginia Lawyers Weekly, noted the awards recognize attorneys who are “setting the standard for other Virginia lawyers.”
The awards are in their 14th year. The “leaders” are recognized for changing the practice of law, serving the community, and improving Virginia’s justice system, Virginia Lawyers Media stated in a press release.
The honorees, along with the “Up & Coming Lawyers” Class of 2019, will be celebrated at a reception on Oct. 22 at the John Marshall Hotel in Richmond.
Each 2019 leader in the law will be profiled in a special supplement that will be distributed at the event and inserted into Virginia Lawyers Weekly in October.
