An Introduction To Our Firm…


Please find a handful of our 5 Star Google reviews below.

“Joseph Williams was an absolute life saver. He was very attentive to my needs and was very good with working around my crazy schedule and explaining everything to me through out the entire process. He also was good with helping me understand how the process works and was spot on with what he told me to expect through everything. Joseph was a man of his word and I really appreciated that. He made a rough situation better for me. Thank you Joe!”

Ronald Cote, 5 Star Google Review

“From the moment you walk in the door you know that you are a valued client! Attorney Joseph Williams took the time to listen to my concerns and went over every option in detail until we came to a solution I was comfortable with pursuing. His suggestion forced the other side to settle without me having to pursue further litigation in court, which in turn saved me a lot of money. The front desk staff is friendly and very attentive as well. Top notch firm! Best experience I’ve had in the Capital Region.”

Lisa S, 5 Star Google Review

“Excellent service! Worked with mainly with Shannon and Kathleen (Casey) and they took our adoption case seriously since day one. They explained everything up front of what was needed for the process to be quicker and smooth. I will definitely go back if needed and definitely recommend Copps DiPaola Silverman.”

Ruby Barrios, 5 Star Google Review

“I cannot recommend this firm highly enough. Lorraine, Kayla and Joe were beyond excellent, professional and courteous. I had a long, exhausting case and Lorraine (and the other attorneys) kept me informed, called me after every appearance, and gave me excellent advice. I felt that I was well cared for, and that is not something I’ve ever said about a law firm, or nary any other business.”
