I went to Atty Darin Gardner for legal advice. He was very forthcoming and did not tell me what I wanted to hear just so I would hire him. He gave me FREE advice, assisted me with completing paperwork and told me I did not really need an attorney. He is the most HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY attorney I have encountered.

Darin and his team really made feel like I was their only client they had and really worked and continue to work like I am their only client and words can not express how I appreciate them. They made the process I went through easy and explained everything and answered all my questions and made sure I understood. They are patient and supportive! I will forever be grateful for them!!

Darin and Terri Are a great team. Both are down to earth real people, easy to talk to and, most importantly, are strong advocates and good at what they do. They helped me through a tough situation and were very fair with billing for their time. I highly recommend Darin if you need a lawyer.

I'm very satisfied Coplan-Gardner & Gardner and with the outcome of my case. I met with Darin Gardner within days of a brief phone conversation.
I got a pretty solid discount through my legal insurance plan though Hyatt. The hourly rates were fair and they billed in increments of an hour. Darin was knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns. He knows the law and found flaws in the respondent's counter-petition immediately. Both Terri and Darin were very quick to respond to my questions and concerns, replying to my emails, often late at night. I spent a good deal of time

Both Terri and Darin were very quick to respond to my questions and concerns, replying to my emails, often late at night. I spent a good deal of time preparing my own documents (financials, parenting classes, etc.), but once done, I got to sit back and let Darin work. What I liked best was having the upper hand in my case at all times (thanks to this firm). In the end, i decided to settle out of court, but having the decisions left up to me but the expertise left to Darin and his team really let me sleep at night. My only regret is waiting this long to share my very positive experience. Thanks Darin and thanks Terri!

Mr. Gardner was a consummate professional during our legal process. My 17 year old son got into trouble during the summer. Mr. Gardner was very informative throughout our process and gave us "straight talk". Our case was ultimately dismissed and we have resumed our normal lives again. Much thanks to Coplan-Gardner & Gardner!!

Darin was a beacon of hope to one of my most valuable employees, at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed near impossible. Not only was he able to defend my guy from unjust accusations by a previous employer, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to my employee, his family, myself and those impacted the most.

Darin and his team are amazing. Very organized. Know what they are talking about and give straight answers. Don't regret for a second switching from a different firm to handle my issue. He took the case and quickly got is settled after 18 months of agonizing back and forth without progress other than draining my bank account!! Don't hesitate, call them for a consultation today, you won't regret it.

Darin Gardner was the fourth attorney I had used in my custody case. From the initial consultation, it was clear that Darin possessed a higher level of competence and attention to detail than the other attorneys I had used. My custody case was one that the system had let slip through the cracks for four years, even though some horrible things had occurred. We reopened the case, and went back to court, all the way to trial. We received a very favorable decision from the judge, guaranteeing my child's stability and safety.

This was my first ever legal action and it concerned my newborn son. Darin and Terri are amazing people. They explained all of the processes associated with paternity cases, provided timelines, and was clear about what I should expect. I entered their office nervous, emotional and overwhelmed by everything. With Darin's representation, honesty, and candor I was sure that my legal decisions were made with my son at the center of my mind and not my emotions. Thanks to this office my case was resolved fairly and I am very pleased with the outcome.

Darin Gardner is an exceptional criminal defense lawyer. His experience as a prosecutor and his knowledge of the local scene – judges, assistant prosecutors, etc. – were crucial in turning around an initially very bleak situation. I retained Darin to represent my wife on a VOP case. Her record was bad: thirty five arrests, multiple felonies and two stints in prison. The judge had told her that if he saw her again he was sending her back to prison. We were virtually certain she was going to prison, especially considering the judge’s reputation.

He brought in the forensic psychologist used by the court to help explain her actions and to make recommendations. He kept my wife’s spirits up while she was in jail. And, in the courtroom he made a brief, pointed, and masterful presentation. The end result was that judge granted exactly what we requested. My wife and I feel blessed that we were recommended Darin Gardner. We could not have had a better advocate.

Darin is an excellent attorney. He represented me in my divorce. He knows the law and knows how other attorneys and clients try and manipulate it and will stand up for what is right. His advice is sound and fair. He’s amazing in the courtroom if you ever have to go. I would recommend him and his office for any legal matter.

Within the law he protected my assets.They are good stewards of your money as well, which unheard of in this day and time. I highly recommend this team for any family law matters that you may need.

Until it was my chaos, my kids, my marriage, my life .... My divorce turned my world upside town, agony of treading water feeling like I had no control, knowing it was only a matter of time before I sunk. It was in that moment, when I felt like I couldn't breathe, that I dialed a number and was rescued. A woman on the other line told me "we have you, come in and meet with Darin”. So I took the first step of the rest of my life, I met with Darin. Darin was confident yet compassionate. He understood that although he did this every day, I did not have a clue what was going on, everything was emotional, foreign, and confusing. He took the time to explain things step by step, reinstating confidence in myself. Once complete strangers, Coplan Gardner & Gardner became my lifeline. They worked diligently day in and day out to ensure I wasn't taken advantage of, but rather pushed and pushed never backing down, and put me in a position to restart my life with a solid foundation. Don't be in that place where you feel like you can't breathe another minute. My boys and I are very grateful that I called Coplan Gardner and Gardner, THANK YOU!

As a medical professional, we are judged not only on our talents and clinical knowledge, but also our "bedside manner"; and Lisa, through and through, represents not only a steep legal knowledge bank, but also the kindness that us clients need in a time of turmoil. On the flip side, she's as fiery, stern and tough as they come when it comes to dealing with opposite council. Point blank, she had my back and best interests - and that's all I could have ever asked for.

I referred 4 different friends and colleagues to Lisa and she took as much care of them as she did me.

If you need a SOLID, TRUSTWORTHY, TALENTED attorney, call Lisa. You'll be glad you did.

We were referred to Darin Gardner by another attorney when my granddaughter was taken out of the state. And very thankful for that. He is so very knowledgeable in the area of law he practices and knows how to dig up information. That is important when trying to get to the truth. I would highly recommend his services. His assistant Terry has also been nothing but outstanding as well.

He made time for me during my first visit for my child's timesharing and divorce case. Darin took the time to review my entire case from scratch, asked critical questions on current status and developed a winning strategy for the best interest of my child. Plan 'A' was to propose a settlement, which was refused by opposing counsel. Plan 'B' was mediation and Plan 'C' was final court hearing. We never got to Plan 'C'. During the mediation Darin presented the facts of the case in a way that the opposing counsel realized that there was no way they were going to win at trial. Daren knows how to build a case and can piece the facts together from point A to point B. We settled the case at mediation, all payments that I was making to wife from the results of the temporary needs hearing was ceased, I had majority time before and even had additional time with my child. Absolutely remarkable. I will recommend Darin to anyone who needs a lawyer because he will build a solid case, has a winning strategy and looks out for the best interest of the
minor and the future needs. Thank you Darin, you are the best.

My family and I firmly believe it was because of Darin's efforts and capability that I was able to get a ruling as favorable as we did.

One of the other firms I paid for the initial one hour consultation and I didn’t even get to finish out the hour nor have all my questions answered. Several attorney offices made me feel like just a number. I never felt that way from the first minute I met with his staff. This was without a doubt the single most important time in my life I needed an attorney and the best. I had everything that meant everything to me on the line. First and foremost my children and then my finances. Darin and his staff were very professional and always accessible. My ex even tried to keep me from seeing my children at one time. Darin and his staff acted swiftly to get us a court date and got the parenting plan ironed out in just a few days. At the end of my divorce by taking Darin's advice we were able to get 50/50 shared custody. I have and will continue to recommend Darin and his staff to anyone in need of an awesome attorney. No matter what the ex's attorney threw our way Darin had a plan. We always took the high road and maintained the highest level of professionalism. I never had a concern or question that he did not have an answer for and always in a timely manner. He truly understood what was on the line for me and delivered time after time at each hearing or deposition. His attention to detail and organization skills are unsurpassed. I always had the utmost confidence in him and his staff at every obstacle we encountered.
Simply put, I trusted Darin and his staff when everything important to me in my life was on the line and would do so again. I highly recommend the Law firm of Coplan-Gardner and Gardner

I have used Lisa Coplan-Gardner on several occasions for child support issues. Every case has been ruled in my favor due to her hard-work, diligence and compassion. I always felt that my case was a priority for her and her entire staff. I have a special needs child and a complex case. At our initial consultation, before I even hired her, she began looking up information for me and guiding me. At no time did I ever feel that it was about money for her. I was surprised at her eagerness to help me, educate me and fight for me and my children. Her kindness, understanding and patience was a breath of fresh air after having spoken to 3 other attorneys who made me feel as if I were a number. They were cold and unconcerned. Lisa treated me like a friend. When it was obvious that my complex case was going to cost more than I could afford at the time, she was sympathetic. She allowed me to make payments to her and often discounted some of her rates. She also suggested ways that I could reduce the costs by handling some things myself instead of just sucking every penny out of me that she could get. By me being proactive in helping with my case, it helped me be more prepared and educated in the courtroom in front of the judge. It also helped me to prepare for what is proving to be a long-term battle against the father of my children. The advice and education that she gave me through the entire process is proving to be invaluable. She never kept me in the dark, she was always available to talk to me, and her staff was AMAZING AND HELPFUL!!!! The thing that most impressed me about Lisa was that she was always honest with me - a trait that is not commonly associated with her profession - even when it was something that I didn't want to hear. She seems to be well liked and respected by other attorneys and the judges seem to respond well to her. She is a sweet, tiny, little thing, but she might as well be 10 feet tall in the courtroom. I have the utmost confidence in her abilities and have referred her to others. They have had equally satisfying experiences with her firm. There is no question that I will utilize her services again in the future. Overall, I don't think that you could hire a better Family Law Attorney.

If you need family law help in Jacksonville the best person to see is Lisa Coplan-Gardner and her wonderful staff.

Lisa is smart and tough and willing to fight for what is right and I know that her and her staff truly care about me and my case. I know the road ahead may be hard but with Lisa on my side I know I will be ok. I would recommend Lisa and her staff to everyone needing help with a family law issue.

Outstanding Staff

Lisa and her staff are outstanding. They really care about their clients and are a top-notch legal staff. Lisa was always there for me and responded to my emergency calls immediately. Lisa and her staff also handled a child custody case for my daughter and they fought for those children as if they were their own. Thanks to Lisa and all, my family has successfully navigated through some stressful times. I have referred other people to Lisa and they have all been very pleased.

Lisa and her staff are great! I have had the pleasure of dealing with some other lawyer's and wasn’t pleased to say the least. She made me feel that my family was important and it showed in her work. My family and I have never been happier. If you are looking for a great attorney firm that will fight day and night for you, then don’t look past her and her staff.
