James R. Cooke, Jr.


Jim has been practicing law in Virginia for thirty years with his practice based primarily in the Richmond and Charlottesville areas. He has represented clients throughout the Commonwealth at both the trial and appellate levels. In addition to his extensive trial work, he has assisted clients with their estate planning needs through both will-based and trust-based plans. His interest in estate planning grew over his years in practice and eventually lead him to dedicating his entire practice to trusts and estate work. He has witnessed first-hand the pitfalls of inadequate planning within his own extended family and wants to ensure that his clients are taking the right steps to secure their legacy.

Jim is a graduate of the College of William & Mary where he was a philosophy major and played on the tennis team. He is a life-long racquet sports enthusiast as a player, instructor and coach. He has held state rankings in both tennis and squash and is very active in those communities in the Richmond area.

Prior to practicing law, Jim worked in the financial services and insurance industry helping clients to develop retirement plans to address their long-term financial security. He lives in Henrico County where he and his wife Angie have raised their three children. Outside of work, Jim enjoys spending time with his family, playing tennis and squash or hammering out some music on the drums, guitar and bass.
