Traffic ticket
I was stress driving and got a huge ticket. Ross was able to get it significantly reduced. He was very responsive to emails and spoke to me on the phone any time I called. I’ve never been through something like this and he made sure to answer any question I had.

Ross vs State Troopers
Ross helped me remove citation from my record. I am Nebraskan who was wrongfully ticketed by Colorado State Troopers. Good job Ross, your help is appreciated.... As for Colorado State Troopers, nothing nice can be said about them, bunch of arrogant pricks not pay their tickets.....hire Ross, he will fight them...

Pleased Client
I contacted Ross to consult on a traffic infraction that I had incurred which could have left me with misdemeanor charges therefore effecting my status at work. Ross walked me through the implications of such charge and his process in addressing the issues at hand. By engaging Ross I found him to always be very clear and responsive in answering all of my questions. I am happy to say that Ross kept my expectations in check and over delivered in the result of my case. Ross was ultimately able to reduce my charges to no points on my record and a minor violation in which I had to pay $121.00 for an initial charge that could have ultimately but me in jail for a short period if I had represented myself in court. I would recommend Ross to anyone who has found themselves in a traffic predicament.

Mr koplin was able to take care of my ticket without me present because I am a long haul truck driver. It was greatly appreciated and I would use him again if needed...hopefully not!

Excellent Job!!
I hired Ross to represent me in a Displaying Fictious Plates traffic case and I am more than satisfied with the outcome he was able to provide. Ross kept me updated and in contact throughout the entire process and in the end got my case reduced down. I'm a very happy client and Ross did an AMAZING job representing me in this matter, I highly recommend him! Thanks again Ross!

Excellent Lawyer
I could not more highly recommend Ross Koplin if you have a serious traffic matter. I was charged with 28 points of violations, including two hit and run allegations arising out of the same event. Ross represented me both at the meeting with the DPD and in court. Ross succeeded in getting all of the charges dismissed - all 28 points. He has a strong knowledge of the law and, more importantly, a very strong knowledge of the traffic/criminal process and how to maneuver through it.

Very Pleased
I got a speeding ticket....24 mph over the speed limit. I had also gotten a ticket 2 months prior so this was not a good situation. I hired Ross because I felt the ticket was unjust and the officer said I was going faster than I actually was. I gave the paperwork to Ross and I had to do nothing but wait. He handled everything and was able to get my points drastically reduced with a minimum court fine. I hope I don't need his services again but if I do, I know he will take care of it.

Amazing Results
I recently retained the services of Ross Koplin for a traffic violation in Aurora, CO. He is very professional and very knowledgeable. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and the outcome was beyond my expectations. He is worth it.

I Would Highly Recommend Ross Koplin
Ross Koplin was a huge help on my traffic case. He is highly professional, kept me up to date on the case, always listened to my concerns, spent the extra time and effort in working with the DA to come to a more than reasonable conclusion and came through in helping me keep my license. What impressed me the most was that he always answered the phone - I was never sent to voice mail or had to wait for a response - something hard to find in this day and age. I would highly recommend Ross Kolpin. I feel lucky to have found him. I can't say Thank You enough!

Traffic Summons Defense
Ross Koplin recently represented me on a Jefferson County, CO traffic matter. Mr. Koplin was very knowledgable about the options, including possible scenarios, and was an exceptionally good communicator throughout the approximately three month process. He resolved the matter with the DA to my satisfaction, meeting the expectations he set with me during my initial consultation. I appreciate Ross Koplin's representation and recommend him.

Great job
I received a speeding ticket and was very close to lose my driver license and thanks to Ross my case was resolved and he saved my driver license . Thank you very much !

Trustworthy, efficient, and friendly.
I hired Ross this early fall, 2013, to represent me for a pretty fast speeding ticket, but had what felt like a bogus reckless driving charge and obstructed windshield charges attached to it (ticketing officer felt it necessary to throw the book at me, surprised I didn't get a "crooked license plate" ticket too) . After initially consulting Ross over the phone, I decided it would be best to have representation given the possible punishment for my traffic offense considering my driving record. Everything was convenient and Ross was able to get back to me in a very timely manner and discuss the in's and out's of what I was being charged with. Before the court date, Ross was able to answer all of my questions through my phone calls and e-mails. Communication was great and I was always in the loop. Ross went over a couple different scenarios and explained to me what I can expect from the courts given my situation/history. Ross came back with a plea deal that I thought was very fair and my charges were reduced beyond what I was expecting. I would highly recommend Ross, he is thorough, patient, friendly, and brought me results I was very pleased with.

Highly Recommend Ross!!
I received a speeding ticket (25+) and what I thought was an unfair reckless driving charge. I attended the first hearing representing myself and the court was not very sympathetic so I became very worried. My case was continued and I found Ross through an internet search. Ross replied quickly, was extremely professional, and handled every aspect of the case. The charges were dramatically reduced well beyond my expectations. What I paid in lawyer fees will be recouped due to a very low fine and insurance savings! I highly recommend Ross.

Great Experience
This guy is awesome. I am from Chicago and I was driving through Colorado and got pulled over going more than 40 mph above the speed limit. I almost got arrested for it and my license almost got suspended. They wanted me to fly back to just ouside Denver for Court even though I am from llinois. I called Ross and he took care of everything. His service is just like valet parking. I didn't even have to go to court. Couple months go by and Ross emails me with a link to pay my fine with my mastercard. Less than $200.00. Paid it. Case closed! Cost for services was reasonable. Strongly recommend Ross!

Traffic Ticket Defense
I had not had a traffic ticket since 2007, and I was just hoping that Mr. Koplin was still in practice. I had used his services many times in the past with great results. I think many speed traps are unfair the way they are set up at the bottom of a hill, or in an obscure place when the limit drastically changes. If you go to court to try to help yourself, it really is a loosing battle and you will only be worse for it. With my busy schedule, I send emails, pay with Paypal, and Mr. Koplin just informs me of the results. The points are usually cut in half or better. With a system that is designed to be unfair, I think Mr. Koplin helps to even the playing field. As long as I am able to pay the fees, I would never handle any ticket without him.

"I engaged Ross by phone to represent a family member in Colorado. I interviewed three attorneys by phone and Ross was by far the most impressive and responsive.
