Excellent Representation
I am very thankful to Bill and his paralegal Gary for all of their hard work and effort towards my case. Both of them are extremely professional and put forth complete commitment towards me as a client. They were thorough and efficient throughout the process of handling my case. Due to the fact that they explained everything to me and kept me informed at all times, I had complete confidence in both of them. The end result of my case was positive and I couldn't have asked for better representation. I would highly recommend William Cope along with his hardworking paralegal Gary to anyone who would find themselves in need of this type of service. Thank you both again, It was a pleasure working with you.

Bankruptcy representation
Mr. Cope was referred to me by another lawyer friend. I found him very professional and easy to work with, everything was explained up front and all my questions were answered by Gary, his paralegal during the process which really made me feel comfortable given the stress of having to file a bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy
Bill and his legal aide Gary, were very helpful in successfully managing our Bankruptcy. They were very knowledgeable in the law and were also kind and understanding to us. Every time I called for information, they were able to answer my questions and concerns. If they didn't have an answer for us at any time, they would always find out the answer and call us back.
