I would highly recommend to anyone seeking Legal representation to contact The Copeland Law Firm. The staff at Copeland Law Firm are professional, friendly, and attentive. Attorney L. G. Copeland is very competent, knowledgeable, and personable. A little research will convince you that Copeland Law Firm is clearly of the most outstanding law firms in the Central Missouri area. If I am ever in need of Legal council again, I will not hesitate to contact the Copeland Law Firm again. Thank you Mr. Copeland and all your staff for the outstanding work.


The biggest thank you to Mr Copeland!!!! During the worst time in my life you were there! I thought I was going to lose everything from my job to my kids. I have never been so scared in my life. Having my whole world shattered and facing jail time for something so awful happening to me. I felt lost and hopeless. I can never thank you enough for pushing back and not settling for less than I deserved in my case. You made no promises, but explained my options and why you were advising me to consider not accepting the plea bargain that was offered. I know I was guilty of my actions, but you got the judge to see that although I may have been guilty on my part, there were other factors you wanted the judge to consider and it was the "victim" who was really guilty in their actions. I cried with relief when the judge did not impose a sentence and it was even better than we were hoping for! I know I won't ever need a lawyer for criminal actions again, but I would recommend you to my dearest friends and relatives in the event that they would need a good, honest lawyer! Thank you so much Mr Copeland!!!!!! I don't know that I can say it enough! I will forever be grateful.

After contacting a few local law firms seeking professional help with my personal injury case, no experience compared to the day I contacted The Copeland Law Firm. Following my motor vehicle accident, I was very uneasy and stressed with knowing I would have to fight with the insurance company along with trying to heal physically and mentally. All of this changed the moment I walked into The Copeland Law Firm. From the initial consultation, through every step of my case, and even after my case was resolved The Copeland Law Firm made me feel like family. Mr Ueligger listened to my concerns while displaying empathy and with great confidence he told me not to worry and to focus on my healing process while assuring me I was in great hands. Working with The Copeland Law Firm was an exceptionally great experience and I felt safe knowing my case was being handled by someone who genuinely cared about me as a client. The results exceeded my expectations and gave me peace of mind. The staff at The Copeland Law Firm was kind, personal, and always very welcoming. To anyone seeking professional representation and are unsure or on the fence about who to trust with handling your case, The Copeland Law Firm is committed to their clients with determination to achieve the results you are seeking. I tell myself often how thankful I am for the opportunity to work with The Copeland Law Firm and commend Mr. Ueligger’s creditable results.

I was in the process of trying to buy a local business while in another state. I selected The Copeland Law Firm via an internet search, based upon proximity to the future business. Mr. Copeland worked tirelessly for me with the Seller’s attorney for quite some time, while also setting up my LLC and Incorporation filings. Sadly, the deal fell through. A short while later I entered into another purchase endeavor. Mr. Ueligger was tasked with that effort. He provided much insight into that purchase and made specific recommendations for my purchase contract that gave me many avenues of protection moving forward.

Several months into operation I experienced a client issue. Mr. Ueligger happened to answer the phone and immediately jumped onto my issue. I had legal documents in my hands within 35 minutes from my first call! I have never had an attorney respond so fast to a problem situation.

Next, the office staff has been terrific to work with. The ladies seem to always smile while speaking with you over the phone. They have always been a pleasure to speak to.

Finally, it should be noted that I have never set foot in The Copeland Law Firm office. All of my needs have been handled long distance. I wonder if I would receive any different treatment in person? I highly recommend this firm.


I have the utmost respect for The Copeland Law firm in regards to a personal injury claim that I was involved in 2010. Their professionalism in such a difficult case insured that me, and my family were taken care of through a difficult time. The Copeland law firm also connected me with mid Missouri’s best medical group for a very professional outcome to my claim. Accidents are something that we all try to avoid, but many times it just doesn't happen with a very good outcome regardless of the precautions we take. In my case, it was inevitable that The Copeland Law Firm was efficient, prompt, and understanding in every way possible, with a great outcome for us through such a difficult time. Thank you Copeland Law Firm.


Mr. Copeland is one of the most compassionate and professional individuals I have met in my life. The reason I had even heard about the Copeland Law Firm was due to its distinguished reputation in the community and I can now appreciate how many clients this organization has helped, being one of them.

I instantly noticed that Mr. Copeland has abundant experience and wisdom in regards to how the legal and judiciary system functions. I cannot emphasize enough the importance that was given to my case in regards to the acute intervention and also obtaining effective results. Mr. Copeland provided moral support to my family and diffused any tension that was presumed in obtaining legal representation.

I would recommend his services to any of my colleagues and family without reservation.

Thank you Mr. Copeland.


I met Mr. Copeland, many years ago, when we were both young professionals. His knowledge of the law and in particular, contracts, has helped guide me successfully through at least the last 30 years.

I have remained confident in The Copeland Law Firm, knowing my questions and concerns about complicated situations would be attended to thoroughly.

Most recently , the firm helped me with a rental situation. Mr. Ernie Ueligger, now a member of The Copeland Law Firm, used his knowledge and expertise to arrive at a positive conclusion on my behalf. Mr. Copeland and Mr. Ueligger worked closely together arriving at a successful result for me.

In July 2013, I was involved in a car accident at a traffic light, I was struck from the rear and knocked into the middle of the intersection. Immediately I was in pain in my lower back and neck...My dealings with the at-fault drivers insurance company were not successful in any aspect...

As a result of my dealings with the insurance company, I contacted The Copeland Law Firm. With my first contact I was treated courteously and professionally...I was immediately put in touch with Mr. Ernie Ueligger. He enthusiastically offered to assist me and started moving the matter forward...

In our case preparation Mr. Ueligger was very thorough and had me well prepared for the deposition.

After Contacting The Copeland Law Firm, I was in very good care. I am very thankful for the professionalism and courtesy extended by Mr. Ueligger and the entire Copeland Law Firm. I wholeheartedly recommend The Copeland Law Firm to anyone with a pending legal matter. You will be in very good and capable hands.


I am writing to express my thanks and gratitude for all the services you and your office has provided to me. I must say, the first time we met I was very skeptical due to the fact you are a young attorney and the way the case sounded did not give me confidence. One thing I did like about that meeting though, is that you were a straight shooter, you made me no promises only possibilities or options. It was made clear from the start that the facts of my case made for a good one, but nothing was guaranteed which was good because there was not any false hopes. Your office comes highly recommended from me and I would advise anyone seeking legal advice to your and I wouldn't hesitate to retain your services again.

Anytime I ever called your office of you called me back, which was great because you always kept in touch with me and kept me updated. You and your staff were always very nice and respectful. Although, the whole process took a while, which you said in the beginning it would, patience is a virtue. In the end, it took right at a year to settle, but the hospital was made happy and I know I was.

In conclusion, I'm very thankful to The Copeland Law Firm and all their abilities. I hope I never have to ask for your help again, but I know if I do, justice will be served. Thank you very much once again, and always remember my name because you never know when you might hear it again.

The minute I walked in the door at Copeland law firm all my nerves involving my case went away. After the first consultation, I felt way more comfortable knowing that I had this attorney on my side. Mr. Copeland does an excellent job of making each client a top priority no matter how small the case. He is keen in sharing with his clients the various options on how to approach each case based on any situation. Also, after a case is done and over with, he is still available to his clients to answer questions related to the case for interviews, applications, or anytime someone asks question regarding criminal history. He is a fantastic lawyer who can solve all legal problems at a reasonable price.
