About me

Neil Kopitsky is one of the founding members of Stokes & Kopitsky, P.A., a leading Atlanta personal injury law firm. As a competitive cyclist himself, Mr. Kopitsky is passionate about representing people injured in bicycling accidents. His extensive knowledge of bicycling law and the dynamics of cycling accidents give Mr. Kopitsky an edge in handling such cases. For over 30 years, he and Mr. Stokes have aggressively pursued the rights of victims injured by another person’s negligence. Their practice is dedicated to cycling, car, and wrongful death claims.

An experienced personal injury lawyer, like a skilled athlete, knows how to walk a fine line between speed and endurance. Mr. Kopitsky has handled many complex cases and does so with a balance of skill and finesse.
