Claimed Lawyer Profile

Andrew Copenhaver devotes his practice to the representation of individuals and families harmed by defective products, motor vehicle accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, premises injuries and other incidents involving negligence in products liability, personal injury and wrongful death cases.

He is also involved in several class actions in Georgia and states throughout the country.

Prior to joining Bell & Brigham, Mr. Copenhaver clerked for the Honorable Dudley H. Bowen, Jr., United States District Judge forthe Southern District of Georgia. In this capacity he gained valuable experience writing complex legal memoranda and, under the tutelage of Judge Bowen, gained valuable wisdom of what works in the courtroom.

Upon the completion of his clerkship with Judge Bowen, Mr. Copenhaver worked at a South Carolina plaintiff's firm where he represented individuals injured in a fatal bus crash in Tunica, Mississippi, individuals harmed in truck accidents, and the family of a young man who was fatally injured by a defective tire. He and his wife, a history and social studies teacher at Augusta Prep, then returned to the strong family ties of Augusta.

Outside of work, Mr. Copenhaver and his wife enjoy fishing, hunting and boating on the Savannah River with their Chocolate Lab Roo.
