Mrs. Cope’s clients have spanned a broad spectrum—from Fortune 100 companies to individual clients faced with criminal charges.  Thus, she is well-suited to handle your legal matter—big or small. 

Mrs. Cope’s diverse litigation experience includes successfully representing major automobile manufacturers in product liability and breach of warranty lawsuits as well as representing major insurers in personal injury matters in courts throughout Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia, including the Supreme Court of Georgia.  As an insurance defense attorney, she worked closely with insurance companies to defend personal injury matters including injuries arising out of automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents and injuries caused by defective products.  This experience has allowed her to work directly with the insurance companies’ adjusters in defense of personal injury matters.  Therefore, as a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney, she understands how insurance companies handle these claims and is uniquely qualified to get the best result for her clients who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence.   Mrs. Cope’s experience also includes handling criminal and traffic matters which range from minor traffic offenses to major felonies.  Her trial experience has equipped her with the tools to be able to competently handle your case from inception through trial and the appellate process if necessary.
