Over 35 Years Of Experience Behind Your Claim

Trial lawyer Richard Kopelman began his career working for insurance companies before he found his true calling representing those injured through no fault of their own. He has battled insurers, trucking companies, medical transport companies, hospitals and other powerful corporate entities, with a consistent track record of success that includes multimillion-dollar recoveries.

We also have extensive experience representing homeowners and business owners whose property has been damaged by stormwater and sewage flooding and backups that disrupt our clients’ lives and result in significant property damage.

A Good Lawyer Hates Surprises

We answer every call and respond to every text. You want to know what’s going on with your case, and we want to know what’s going on with you. Richard Kopelman checks in with injury clients before and after their medical appointments to track their progress (and setbacks) on the long road to recovery. He is proactive in addressing any legal complication that could be a barrier to your full compensation.

That’s the key to our success – going the extra mile to know the medical records and the accident investigation better than the defense lawyers and insurance adjusters whose goal is to deny liability or downplay your case. We never want to be caught off-guard or surprised at deposition or trial, and because we know no detail is too small, that doesn’t happen. The only good surprise is when our thorough and hands-on approach leads to a larger-than-expected jury verdict or settlement.
