About Me

     Experience Snapshot:  Asst. District Attorney,  Solicitor-General, judicial law clerk, Military Police, JAG Corps, law enforcement instructor, County Attorney, and City Attorney.


    Attorney Coppage has worked for the courts as a judicial law clerk, working directly with judges; has served the community as a prosecutor (Asst. District Attorney) before accepting the Governor's appointment as Solicitor-General (prosecutor).  He has taught at the law enforcment training center, and served as both a County Attorney and City Attorney.  His military service includes the conduct of law enforcement as a military policeman and as a prosecutor and defense counsel in the Army JAG Corps. 


     As I have advanced my career, I come to realize one thing-  MOST of my clients are hard working people who simply used a little bad judgment on a particular day.  Hence, my slogan- "Helping Good People in Bad Times." 


     I am committed to FIGHT for my clients.  Good people should reap the benefit of their productive, law-abiding contributions to society, not branded a criminal for a rare lapse in judgment!  Call me.  Let's see if I can help you.
