Reggie is an experienced mediator and litigator who focuses primarily on product liability, nursing home-related claims, personal injury, insurance disputes, bad faith and commercial litigation.

He has tried more than 100 jury trials in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and Illinois. His successes include a products liability case in which he secured a verdict for his client in excess of $22 million. The month-long case concerned the design flaws in a slant blade meat saw used in butcher shops and was tried in a county in Illinois where there had never been a punitive damage award in a personal injury case.

Reggie began actively mediating in 2007 and has handled several hundred mediations per year from that point to the present. His mediation experience has covered a wide range of disputes and can be seen in the Experience section of his profile.


Reggie Copeland, Jr. graduated from Spring Hill College in 1975. Reggie received his law degree from Cumberland School of Law in 1978. He joined The Gardner Firm as a partner effective May 1, 2011.
