Richard has a knack for explaining legal terms and outcomes so that I could understand and make sense of them. His easygoing persona made it a pleasure to work with him. Richard is a very tactically creative lawyer which helped in resolving our lawsuit in a speedy manner.
I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for an Attorney.

Mr. Copeland became my friend after he represented me in a law suit that lasted over two years.
He is the type of person who takes his time in explaining the court’s procedures and makes it so that the average layman can understand.
The other thing that I liked about Mr. Copland is that when you are in a law suit you are sometimes driven by emotion and cannot see a matter from a logical viewpoint, he explains the matter in a way that helps you understand what the courts are looking for.
I would strongly recommend Mr. Copland to anyone in need of a good attorney.

My case was a personal injury accident which took place in Durango, Co.
I was referred to Mr. Copeland by another lawyer who backed out of my case at the last moment. I talked with Mr. Copeland via telephone many times before I met him. Mr. Copeland maintained contact with me and kept me informed as to how the case was progressing.
I met Mr. Copeland for the first time when he came to Michigan with the opposing lawyer to take depositions. Mr. Copeland sat down and explained what was going to take place at the deposition.
The next time that I met with Mr. Copeland was in Denver in June of 2008 for a mediation hearing. Mr. Copeland led us through the hearing, answering our questions and explaining our options. We settled our case to our satisfaction.
I should mention that due to my former occupation as a Police Officer, and my wife.s former occupation as a court magistrate, wwe had both had many dealings with lawyers over the years. Mr. Copeland renewed my faith in lawyers.
To sum it all up, I highly reccomend Mr. Copeland. He was not only our lawyer but became a friend.

I endorse and recommend this lawyer's work. Richard and I were on the opposite sides of a personal injury case. He did an excellent job for a difficult client. Additionally, he was very professional and a pleasure to work with and get to know.
