Michael J Kopsick

About me

I am the proud father of two great kids and husband to a wonderful wife;  I have been deeply involved in the communities in which my family has resided (Manchester and Tolland), taking leadership roles in charitable, sports, and civic organizations, including several dedicated to the betterment of education. 


I am equally proud to be a partner in a firm that cares as much about my personal growth as my professional development.


What i enjoy most about my job is being able to solve people's problems by applying communication skills and legal knowledge I developed over 27 years.


In my free time, I enjoy golf, skiing, exercise, dining out and travel

  • Robert M Fortgang

    Attorney Kopsick and I have been opposing counsel in at least one employment dispute over the years. While we will likely continue to view our client matters very differently, I have found him to be respectful and knowledgeable. Perhaps the most telling endorsement I can offer is to state that if ever there were to exist a matter in which my firm found itself in conflict, I would have no hesitancy in recommending Attorney Kopsick. Respectfully submitted, Rob Fortgang - 8/1/08
