Attorney Lisa Coppola launches boutique law firm
Amherst, NY – Attorney Lisa A. Coppola has recently opened a solo law practice in Amherst, a move that she says will provide services that are needed by specific groups in Western New York, and that will allow her to serve her clients on a more personal level.
Lisa Coppola LLC provides businesses and entrepreneurs with legal services including general business law, disputes, and employment law. The firm’s areas of practice also include personal injury cases and end-of-life planning. Additionally, Coppola is sought after for her extensive experience in providing counsel to charter schools as she is passionate about their impact on the lives children in New York State.
“I’m marrying the warrior-litigator side of me with the compassionate helper. The thread that runs through my practice is to combine my strategic talents – getting clients quickly extricated from their challenges – with my desire to empower individuals and companies to be their best selves, whether that’s molding a creative resolution to an employee dispute, emerging from litigation, beginning a new venture, or finding hope after a devastating injury,” said Coppola.
Coppola’s prestigious 25-year career establishes her as a trailblazer in the legal industry and sets the backdrop for her solo practice. In 1997, she was the first woman litigator at Hodgson Russ LLP to be named as an equity partner. She later moved on to become a partner in another local practice and helped to grow the firm from five attorneys to 40 over twelve years. In 2015, Coppola made history again as the first attorney in Western New York to receive the New York State Bar Association’s Pro Bono Volunteer of the Year Award for her work on a case to obtain asylum for a local refugee family.
Currently, Coppola is the incoming President of NAWBO Buffalo-Niagara (National Association of Women Business Owners), and also serves as a board member for the Roswell Alliance, the Health Sciences Charter School, the Asian Connection of WNY, Inc., and the Women’s Business Center at Canisius College.
Lisa Coppola LLC is located at 3960 Harlem Road in Amherst. For more information visit: lisa-coppola.com
