Mr. Kopp knows that the role of an attorney, especially a family law attorney, is to help people solve their problems. Because attorneys can have a tremendous impact on people’s lives, they must keep in mind that their actions affect real people, not abstractions.

He serves the Wisconsin State Bar as a member of the Fee Arbitration Panel.  Mr. Kopp is also the Chairman of the City of Janesville Police and Fire Commission and is a Meals on Wheels volunteer.  He is active in his church as an usher, greeter, the current Chairman of the Church Council and was previously a volunteer for the Jefferson Elementary School Breakfast Club.  Mr. Kopp is also proud to be on the Board of Directors for the Mercy Health System, Rock County’s largest employer.
