Lisa A. Coppola, Esq. understands the challenges her clients face, whether they’re starting a new business, taking their existing operations in a new direction, or facing a claim or threat. She particularly enjoys working with the underdog, because her compassion and creativity – and she has plenty of both – are put to the test.
In the 25-plus years she has practiced in Western New York, Ms. Coppola has actively litigated cases in State and federal court, including arguing appeals at New York’s highest court and in the Federal Second Circuit Court of Appeals. She has a breadth of experience in business litigation as well high-exposure personal injury matters, including taking cases to verdict over the course of many years and in many courtrooms. While she is comfortable before a jury, she is equally at home before appellate and arbitration panels.
Previously, Ms. Coppola was a partner at Hodgson Russ and was honored to be the first female litigator named an equity partner there. She is engaged in community service as a member of the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Institute’s Alliance Advisory Board, as a board member for WNY STEM Hub, and as an advisory board member for the MedLaw Partnership of WNY. She also serves on the Presidents Assembly Steering Committee for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and on the NAWBO Buffalo Niagara board of directors where she supports women entrepreneurs from all industries and professions.
Along with her business partner Joseph Han, Ms. Coppola owns The English Gardener, Western New York’s premier garden design and construction company where she combines her love of gardening with her keen business sense.
