Special Counsel

Attorney Richard Kopelman has practiced law since 1987. During the early years of his legal career, Richard represented insurance companies and big businesses but quickly realized that his true calling was representing plaintiffs in personal injury claims and lawsuits. Richard is passionate about helping others, a champion of the underdog, and an aggressive personal injury advocate.

In 1991, Richard dedicated his career to personal injury law. He is licensed in federal and state courts across the state and is well-versed in mass tort, multi-district litigation (MDL), where he represents clients on the local, statewide, and national levels. With significant experience in the insurance industry, Richard knows how to identify weak opposing arguments and exploit them for the benefit of his client.

Impressive Record of Success

Richards’s success includes a multitude of substantial settlements and jury verdicts, including at least one million-dollar settlement. This accomplishment earned him a place in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®. Today, he continues to build a reputation for excellence in the legal community as he strives to become the most skilled and well-prepared legal advocate in the greater Atlanta area.

As a client’s advocate, Richard believes that “It is [my] responsibility, in fact [my] duty…to make the members of the jury feel like they have known the client all of his or her life, because only then can jurors truly understand the devastating effects of the client’s injury. Without such an understanding, a jury cannot possibly return a just and proper verdict in our client’s favor.”

Educational Achievements

Richard graduated with honors from Washington and Lee University and earned his law degree from the University of Georgia. As a law student, he represented the university in moot court competitions and even placed first in the Southeast Regional competition. He was also selected as a national member of The Order of Barristers, an organization that recognizes excellence in legal education.

Today, Richard is of special counsel at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. in Atlanta, where he continues to develop a reputation for high-quality legal service. He is married and has three sons.
