About Lloyd

Lloyd Copenbarger is the founder of the Copenbarger law firm. He has dedicated his life to protecting legacies and families from the unnecessary cost and hardship caused by probate and other court matters. Lloyd built a firm that could help his clients through each phase of the estate planning process so that his attorneys and staff could walk alongside clients and their families for generations to come.

Lloyd grew up on a farm in Oklahoma where he witnessed his parents be told they were too “poor” for an estate plan. This fueled his passion for estate planning that is accessible to all. Lloyd believes that every person’s legacy matters, regardless of their financial means, and that they should be treated as such. Lloyd moved to California after graduating from University of Oklahoma and opened the Copenbarger & Copenbarger law firm. For over 40 years, he has run a firm that embodies his “why” – that every client’s legacy does matter.

Lloyd is licensed to practice law in Ohio, Oklahoma, and California, and is a Certified Specialist in Probate, Estate Planning, and Trust Law in California. He practices full time as an estate planning and trust administration attorney, while working with our business and tax department focusing on more advanced planning. Lloyd has extensive experience with high net worth individuals and the specific planning this takes.


In his free time, he spends time with his family, including his wonderful wife Laura Copenbarger, their two children, his grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He loves going back to Oklahoma to harvest pecans so that he can make some of the best pecan pie ever made. He enjoys going to church with his family, gardening, flying planes with his grandson, and cheering on the University of Oklahoma’s football team.
