Why Choose Opelon LLP?

Let's Chat

We envision a world in which legal services are accessible to all. One where clients understand the legal decisions they are making and are not intimidated by working with an attorney, but rather comforted. 

A world where attorneys get to know their client’s goals and concerns and are then able to put their full energy and attention into meeting those goals and alleviating those concerns. 

So….how can this tall order be completed? 

Put simply, we put our minds to it. And when we put our minds to something, we figure it out. 

Our solution is to couple years of experience  with new technology. This allows us to automate routine simple tasks (tasks that other firms use to meet their monthly billing quotas) all while eliminating common human error.

The end result? 

Our attorneys are able to focus their full time and attention on our clients. Thus, our attorneys are able to produce custom, effective, legal strategies to address and satisfy each client’s unique needs. All at a fraction of the cost of what outdated firms charge.

At Opelon LLP, we pride ourselves on providing legal services that offer more in value than we take in compensation. 

We are here to help clients navigate difficult life decisions and set themselves and their families up for future success.

That is the Opelon Promise.
