My legal troubles began in the summer of 2015. It was once I realized the severity of the situation that I began to seek council from an attorney. I hired Mr. Kopka and his office, and it was the correct decision. What began as an accusation turned into what I feared could be potential jail time. Eric and his office was there every step of the way, advising me on what I needed to do, where the case was at, and what could/would potentially happen next. The federal prosecutor eventually decided not to pursue charges which I firmly believe Eric was instrumental in. The command was not ok with not doing anything so I was informed I would be heading to an administrative separations board. The office didn't skip and beat and began preparing for our day in court. Eric's conviction and determination remained and I am proud to say that I can continue my service honorably. Watching what Eric does in the a courtroom is inspiring. My life, and the lives of my family was on the line and Eric Kopka was ABSOLUTLELY the man that I wanted representing me that day. If I ever need any legal advice or assistance in the future, Eric will be my first call.

I appreciate Mr. Kopka's constant assistance and efforts
in my legal process. I am thoroughly impressed with the work ethic he put into my case and highly recommend him to anyone who may be dealing with legal issues. I was very nervous and irritated prior to hiring his services. I not only appreciate Mr. Kopka, but his assistants as well, that helped and directly spoke
with me on numerous occasions.

Mr. Kopka and his assistant we're very punctual in getting back to me with messages. They did an outstanding job of gathering information as needed and relaying it back to me. I felt a great deal of relief knowing that I had Mr. Kopka in my corner. I would highly recommend At least a consultation with Mr. Kopka if you are in need of any legal recommendations or representation.
