Norfolk Injury Lawyer John Cooper To Address Bar Association Event on Injury Litigation
John Cooper, my partner at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, is to address a Norfolk & Portsmouth Bar Association event about injury litigation to be held in Norfolk on September 13.
Speakers during the afternoon event in suite 400 at Dominion Tower will address current topics in injury litigation from the plaintiff, defense and judge’s viewpoint.
The specific topics encompass the fast-moving field of injury law in Virginia. They include the new Virginia evidence code, the use of Facebook and other social media such as Twitter and Google+, the use of the General District Court in injury cases, mistakes made as a counsel and personal injury ethics.
John is a regular speaker at events in Hampton Roads and further afield. In April he presented a paper about the uninsured motorist at a conference in Virginia Beach, VA.
He was recently reelected to chair the FELA litigation group of the American Association for Justice, the largest plaintiffs’ attorney organization in the United States. FELA is the Federal Employers’ Liability Act.
