Daniel M. Copeland, Esq.
Daniel M. Copeland is a life-long resident of Jacksonville, Florida, growing up in and continuing to live in the Mandarin area. Mr. Copeland graduated from The Bolles School in 1971 and from Jacksonville University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, the former Sharon Greene since 1974. They have two grown sons who are also married, and two grandsons.
Prior to opening his law firm in January, 2003, Mr. Copeland enjoyed a successful career with his wife as his partner as a local land developer developing twelve Jacksonville neighborhoods and in excess of 2,000 single family building lots. As a state-licensed residential contractor, their home building company built in excess of 1,400 single family homes in Duval and St. Johns Counties. In addition to his career as a land developer and home builder, Mr. Copeland also became the Chairman of the Board and eventually the sole owner of one of the largest motor freight carriers operating from the southeastern United States. However, his passion has always been to practice law and when the opportunity to sell the trucking business presented itself in 1999, Mr. Copeland sold the business and immediately enrolled in Florida Coastal School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctorate degree in 2002 and passing the July 2002 Florida Bar exam on the first sitting.
When you hire Daniel M. Copeland, Attorney at Law, P.A. to represent your interests in any legal matter, whether it is for construction defects, contract disputes, real estate matters, land use/zoning, landlord/tenant issues, guardianship, divorce, child support, or wills and probate, you receive the benefit of Mr. Copeland’s extensive financial, business and real estate experience as additional value. His experience is particularly beneficial to you if your case requires the partition of real estate, valuation of a closely held or family business, or a high asset divorce.
The reason that you want Mr. Copeland and his staff representing your interests in such circumstances is that in addition to their legal knowledge and expertise, they bring substantial real world experience that can only be gained from operating a business, whether it is construction, land development or interstate trucking. Many attorneys possess adequate legal knowledge and experience, but lack the fundamental real world experiences gained in operating their own businesses.
Mr. Copeland and his highly experienced staff will aggressively and diligently pursue the best results to meet not only your immediate needs but your long term goals as well. Starting with the beginning of your representation, you will have a fully dedicated team working for you and one that will keep you thoroughly informed of the progress of your case through its final disposition.
