MIAMI, FL—Haber Law is expanding in Florida with two partners and one associate, as well as support staff.

Lending and transactional attorney Harold (“Hal”) Lewis and Broward County commercial litigation attorney Jessica L. Kopas are joining the firm’s roster of partners.

Matthew Holtz joins as an associate in the firm’s Real Estate and Transactional Law Practice Group, for which Mr. Lewis will serve as Chair. Ms. Kopas will be a partner in the Complex Business Litigation Practice Group.

Mr. Lewis comes to Haber Law from Pathman Lewis, LLP, where he was a founding and co-managing shareholder. Mr. Holtz was an associate at the same law firm. With more than 35 years of experience, Mr. Lewis practices in several areas with particular emphasis on real estate, finance and corporate matters including real estate and asset-based financing, acquisition and development, leasing, condominium, and the design and implementation of ownership structures including partnerships and limited liability companies. 

Ms. Kopas was previously a partner at Conrad & Scherer, LLP in Ft. Lauderdale. Ms. Kopas has successfully litigated several high-profile cases involving a nationally publicized billion-dollar South Florida Ponzi scheme centered around falsified structured settlements, as well as various cases involving bank fraud. Over the course of her practice, Ms. Kopas has advocated for the interests of her clients, including Fortune 500 companies, in a wide variety of disputes both in and out of court.

In addition to the new attorneys, paralegals Marlin Perez and Evelyn Morejon-Daher, along with legal assistant Lori Vergara, will join the firm.
