Trust Attorney Lisa A. Kopelman With Your Case


Ms. Kopelman is a defense attorney with over 30 years of experience working primarily at the Orange County Public Defender’s Office. She is a passionate defender of individuals’ rights against the overwhelming power of the government. She has built her practice around a clear mission statement:

When charged with a crime the enormous force of government is against you. Attorney Lisa A. Kopelman has devoted her life to defending people against that powerful force.

She has taken this philosophy of defense and developed a practice that uses aggressive representation to protect those accused of crimes. During her more than three decades of successful practice, she has represented those accused of serious crimes and argued before the Superior Court in Orange and other southern California Counties as well as before California’s Fourth Appellate District Court. As a result, Ms. Kopelman is at home in most Southern California courtrooms.
