In my profession, I have spoken to 100's of attornies in the last 30 years. Traditionally I do not like talking to Attorneys or Lawyers. The legal profession seems to be full of Attornies that are full of themselves. This man bridges the gap between confidence, compassion, empathy and sympathy and has the best educated background in the legal profession than anyone that I have ever known. I would reccomend him to my parents and anyone else I love. If you were allowed to have one phone call in your hour of need. This would be the man I would have on speed dial. I consider it very fortunate and in some ways lucky, that I came to know this man, as I know what he has done for the people that I love. I would not hesitate under any condition in any way to make him part of your future, your career, your relationships or your profession. This man is on a first name bases with everyone he deals with and on the top of everyone's Christmas list. Now I know why others feel this exact same way, as I've had the opportunity to witness his knowledge, confidence and attention to the details. He is second to none and sets and entire new standard for what Attornies should be like as he walks the talk and will become your friend, your ally and your legal counsel as you get to know him. I advocate that you make him a priority in any future challenges or legal matters that you will encounter in your life. I've committed this mans number to memory.
Just FYI. I have never given a reccomendation to any Attorney. However, this man deserves everything I just said and more.

I would give Ralph Stephen Copolla 10 stars if I could rate him! Last year, he handled my divorce during a time in my life that I was losing everything at once, as well as being bullied by a mutual "friend", who had manipulated me for the rest of the money that I had left. I look back and I was such a mess emotionally and financially, as ending a 25 year marriage wasn't my idea, as well as we had several properties and businesses and a daughter to work out. Having Stephen as my Attorney, gave me the ground on my feet that I needed. He took the lead and guided me through that journey with skill and confidence. I am sure everyone feels that their situation is at it''s worse at that point, but Stephen helped me to calm down and work through the decisions, paperwork and legalities to end that chapter of my life with dignity. I can't thank him enough for all he did for me and beyond! To find an Attorney who is competant and compassionate is very rare. I am so thankful he came into my life when he did and now consider him amoungst my closest friends.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
