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.

Eric is a true professional who leads with his ears first and then gives you raw feedback on the situation and it's probable outcomes. You need that. What you don't need is someone who is going to butter everything up for you and I appreciated that.
He is extremely well versed in the UCMJ as he is a USMCR Major and has served both in both garrison and deployed units. He also provides training to multiple military JAG officers which I have seen first hand multitudes of these officers flock to him as he walks into a JAG office because they are seeking his advice (both defense and prosecution). Pretty impressive individual.
Eric's ability to formulate your thoughts into a rational, intellectual and articulate deliverance is quite possibly the most amazing demonstration of oration that I have ever witnessed.
I was always told how good of a lawyer he is but until I hired him for my case and watched him in action, that's when I knew for sure. My career is still alive and well because of this man.

Mr. Kopka should be the first call you make if you are in the military and require legal assistance. His knowledge of military law is unparalleled. Mr. Kopka and his staff assisted me through the most stressful time of my life when I was falsely accused of sexual assault. He immediately explained the process and stuck with me through a year of hell. The bottom line is that he saved my career not only for myself but my family as well.

I have worked with Eric on several cases and can tell you that his attention to detail, work ethic, and passion to get his clients the best results are exceptional. He is great in the courtroom and an overall great guy. Eric has my strongest recommendation.
