Due the breadth of legal services we provide, our lawyers often serve as general business counsel for businesses that are too small to have their own in-house legal department. Our experience with everything that can go wrong in a business relationship helps us counsel our clients in ways to avoid problems down the road.

In our view, the most effective way to manage litigation costs is to avoid litigation. If litigation is necessary, our lawyers will be candid about the cost of your case if it goes to trial. As a business owner, you need to be certain that the goal you wish to accomplish is worth the potential expense.

Jeremy and Bruce are highly experienced and ethical attorneys. I had a very difficult case, and Jeremy and Bruce formulated an excellent legal strategy based on the evidence and the laws, and they proceeded to fight diligently to preserve my rights in a business deal that had seriously gone south.

Jeremy and Bruce acted quickly on my behalf and kept the pressure on my opponents throughout the litigation and ultimately collected every dime I was owed, including reimbursement of the attorney fees that I had to expend in bringing suit as well as recovery of all payments/remuneration of assets that were owed to me by my opponents.  Their knowledge of the law and their ability to formulate and execute excellent legal strategy are outstanding capabilities of their firm.

I have worked with attorneys nearly every day for over 20 years, and I can say that Jeremy and Bruce are of the highest caliber. Whatever the situation, they will give you the best advice and they will act on it professionally to help you.

I would highly recommend Copeland and Brown, P.C. for all of your legal needs.
