PROTECTING BICYCLIST'S FOR 12 YEARS AND WROTE THE BOOK ON NORTH CAROLINA BICYCLE LAWS.

Ann is a member of bikelaw, a national network dedicated to promoting and protecting the rights of cyclists in the Carolinas, and beyond. Ann is an advocate for bicycle safety, and stands up for cyclists’ rights on the roads and in court.

Ann graduated with honors and received a degree in engineering arts from Michigan State University. In 1994, she graduated cum laude from Tulane University School of Law where she was elected to the Order of the Coif. During law school, she was an editor on the Tulane Environmental Law Journal and was a Public Interest Law Foundation grant recipient. Ann worked first with the North Carolina Center for Death Penalty Litigation and then with the Cumberland County Public Defender’s Office until she opened her own practice in Fayetteville in 1998. She joined Patterson Harkavy’s  Raleigh office in April, 2000 and, in 2007, established a Charlotte office where she now handles cases throughout the state. In 2011, Ann, Leto Copeley and Valerie Johnson formed Copeley Johnson & Groninger PLLC. Today, Ann litigates serious personal injury cases with a special interest in representing victims of bicycle crashes. She also represents individuals seriously injured in car wrecks and by negligent property owners.

Ann is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), where she previously served on the Board of Governors. She has taught as a faculty member of NCAJ’s Capital College and several National Institute for Trial Advocacy programs and coached a high school mock trial team from 2002-2006. Ann has prepared amicus briefs on behalf of the North Carolina ACLU and NCAJ. She is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, the league of American Bicyclists and other bicycle advocacy organizations. She also serves of the boards of Charlotte Bike Camp and BikeWalkNC.

When she is not working, Ann loves to be riding any kind of bicycle.

Excellent attorney, wonderful experience
It was a pleasure working with Ann and her team. I was hit by a truck while riding my bicycle. I was out of work for 9 weeks, had 3 surgeries, and no way was I in shape to tackle the insurance claims or any other pieces of this case. There was no way I could have dealt with the insurance companies without her assistance. From the start, she explained to me the process and what we could expect and she was dead on. She never set false expectations but stuck with the facts and did a very good job. There were no surprises and communication with Ann was constant. She made me feel comfortable all the way through the process. Her persistence with the insurance companies and knowledge of the law made everything seem so simple (at least to me!). I hope I never need an attorney again but if I do, I will certainly be calling Ann for assistance. Everyone in her office was very responsive and eager to assist. They were all very professional and a pleasure to work with.

If you want the best hire Ann Groninger, if all you want is a settlement hire someone else.
I hired Ann Groninger after meeting with her and her staff of professionals and knew that I would receive justice. Their first order of business was my health and getting me back to as close to being one hundred percent as possible, secondarily the took care of all of my medical expenses ensuring that I had no financial residuals as a result of my accident. From letters, to emails and phone calls informing me of the status of my trial dates too any new and unseen developments with my case they kept me abreast and completely involved, often asking me about my opinions needs and concerns as we moved forward. Misses Groninger never focused on the monetary portions of the case but more so the justice of the case as promised by the law and as promised by her and her elite legal team. Again no mailers no phone calls I was introduced to her and her superior team of experts from a pryior client. Would I recommend this talented staff of lawyers absolutely. So if you want justice hire Ann Groninger, if all you want is a settlement hire someone else.
