As a specialist in labor and employment issues, Stephen has always been passionate about representing individuals and groups, especially those who have been marginalized.

A strong believer in the power of laughter, Stephen is a proud member of The Valley Jesters in San Fernando, California. The Valley Jesters is a charitable organization focusing on the Junior Blind of America and other youth-centric philanthropic efforts.

Stephen is currently a Crown Prince of the Valley Jesters and is steadily working his way up the monarchy!

Since Stephen M. Koppekin has a long history in the entertainment industry, it comes as no surprise that he’s involved serving on the Heartbeat of Hollywood Golf Event Committee. Every year Stephen participates in the Annual Heartbeat of Hollywood Golf Classic, a tournament which raises money for the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF). The tournament raises about half a million dollars every year, and proceeds are disbursed across the MPTF’s efforts to provide companionship, entertainment, and assistance (such as assisted living facility placement) for entertainment industry members.
