About Us

We are committed to delivering high-quality legal services to clients in a professional, effective, and cost-efficient manner.  Our attorneys are experienced advocates, having represented clients in hundreds of diverse state and federal court matters ranging from commercial disputes for small to medium-sized businesses, to serious personal injury and wrongful death claims, to complex “bet the company” toxic tort and environmental litigation.  Whether we are prosecuting or defending a claim in litigation, assisting someone injured in an accident, or structuring a new business entity, our goals remain the same — to understand our clients’ needs and objectives, and to employ our experience and other resources to meet them effectively and efficiently.

Shawn Copeland and Drew Richards began the firm in 2007 after practicing at national firms in Charlotte and Richmond, Virginia. They began the firm with a goal of providing quality legal representation, in particular in the litigation arena, in the greater Lake Norman area. They are honored to have represented hundreds of businesses and individuals in the area in a variety of legal matters, and consider it a privilege to assist those in need of legal representation.

We strive to provide clear and cost-effective legal solutions to each and every client we have the pleasure to represent.  While we are often asked to be advocates, and strive to represent our clients zealously, we also believe that treating the opposing side with dignity and respect throughout the dispute serves to both meet our client's objectives, and maintain the dignity of all parties involved.
