Celebrating John Cooper’s Induction into the Virginia Lawyers Weekly 2024 Hall of Fame

Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers is honored to announce that one of our founding partners, John M. Cooper, has been inducted into the Virginia Lawyers Weekly Hall of Fame for 2024. This prestigious recognition celebrates Virginia lawyers who have been in practice for 30 years and have made significant contributions to the legal profession and the Commonwealth throughout their careers. 

John’s career spans over three decades, during which he has dedicated himself to representing victims of personal injuries and their families. His expertise covers a wide range of complex cases, including commercial truck wrecks, railroad accidents, traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death claims. His understanding of the serious consequences personal injuries can have on individuals drives his relentless advocacy on their behalf. 

Throughout his career, John has secured numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients, cementing his reputation as a leader in the field of personal injury law. Notably, in 2020, he achieved the largest reported recovery in Virginia—$6,500,000 for a plaintiff in a car wreck. Other significant cases include a $5,000,000 settlement for a woman hit by a construction truck, and a $4,725,000 settlement for a child auto accident victim who suffered vision impairment and multiple fractures. 

John’s legal expertise has earned him numerous awards and accolades, including a long time listing as an AV Pre-eminent attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, from peer review ratings from fellow Virginia attorneys. His dedication is further underscored by his decade-long service on the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association Board of Governors and his serving as chair of the Railroad Law Section of the American Association for Justice from 2011 to 2017. 

Beyond the courtroom, John is deeply committed to his community. Under his leadership, the firm has made significant annual contributions to many charitable causes and community organizations.  

John’s induction into the Virginia Lawyers Weekly Hall of Fame is based on his impressive achievements, significant contributions to the development of the law in our state, efforts to improve access to justice, and service to the Commonwealth. His profile, along with those of other honorees, will be featured in an upcoming issue of Virginia Lawyers Weekly. 

John’s career induction into the Hall of Fame is a well-deserved acknowledgment of his outstanding service and profound impact on the lives of countless injury victims across Virginia. Congratulations, John, for this prestigious honor and your achievements in the field of personal injury law.
