I just wanna take the time to thank Mr.Cook! I really appreciate what you did for me in my legal situation. You really went above and beyond and I am forever grateful! It feels good when you know your lawyer actually cares about the outcome and takes time to do his best for you. Thanks again Mr. Cook!Apr 13, 2020Review from Google

Great experience. Jace was great! He really knows his stuff, and he carefully read through the signing pages aloud so we could all hear it and nod assent. Plus he sure looked the part! Gray suit, tie, the whole sheebang.Apr 12, 2020Verified

Until today I knew of one other attorney in my 50 years on this earth. And historically, I've heard mostly negative feedback stating the primary "Financial Focus" of this profession as well as a lack of true concern for the individual asking questions. Since I have no personal experience with, or the need of an attorney, Mr. Cook proved quickly what this profession should look like. Mr. Cook is considerate, truly attentive, and provides an honest list of options for any individual considering the use of an attorney. I would personally recommend, and will more than likely utilize his services if necessary.Jan 24, 2019Review from Google

Criminal Defense Attorney
February 14,2018 The man has a desire and a fire for his trade which is law... JANUARY 28,2019, I want first say the man artist the way he takes in the input from me and his Aprentece and knows how to orchestrate the police man to admit to doubt uncertainty and foremost and he did it with eleagance. Mr jcook I come from a place where people like me get stepped on by the law always. When the cop was testifying and to watch you lead this man to a corner with his own doing.. it was epic.. you have it. You got the fire. 🔥 I am honored to have you as an attorney.. I wish I could get a court room video... it was legendary..Jan 29, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing depends on the nature and complexity of the case. For some cases COOK LAW gives an hourly quote, in others, such as criminal defense, quotes are given in one single amount to defend the charge(s) up to trial, and then an additional flat fee for defense at trial. Still, other quotes are contingent upon reaching an acceptable settlement or award for the client; for example in personal injury cases the client is not charged up front. Finally, COOK LAW may be retained by a fee paid monthly by clientele in the wine business, assuring them a limited range of services during that month if they need it.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Sitting down with them and listening to what it is they want. Letting them know if COOK LAW can help them and how, and asking if and when they want to proceed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?A Juris Doctorate from Portland's own Lewis and Clark Law School. Extensive practical experience gained in the legal field before, during and after law school. Overseas legal study of Anglo American Law and the English Common Law; the roots of our current legal system in the US.; significant education, experience and training in negotiation. Experience taking multiple cases to trial and winning in Portland's downtown Multnomah County County. Experience working for and with some of the top trial attorneys in Oregon who also worked as deputy district attorneys. Over the years, they shared the insight they gained from working for the state of Oregon as prosecutors with me, and as the owner and operator of COOK LAW, I often turn to that insight when practicing criminal defense.
