As a partner at Kopfler & Hermann, Attorneys at Law, Joseph G. Kopfler primarily handles transportation, maritime, personal injury and general litigation cases in Houma, Louisiana. He has a strong dedication to winning that he developed early on as a competitive athlete at Baton Rouge High School.

When he attended college, Mr. Kopfler pursued an undergraduate degree in the arts and sciences. His degree covered several science courses that now play an instrumental role in how he handles medical malpractice cases. These include biochemistry, anatomy and physiology. In 1977, he obtained his J.D. from the Loyola University School of Law and became licensed to practice in Louisiana.

For almost 35 years, Mr. Kopfler has handled some of the most complex cases in Louisiana. One such case involved a fuel truck filling an above-ground tank, and the resulting damages that destroyed a local business. He has also won millions in compensation for his maritime clients who would otherwise have received inadequate or no resources to help them recover from their injuries.

Even when he's not currently working on a case, Mr. Kopfler remains active in the legal community. He is a member of several professional organizations, such as the American Association for Justice and the Louisiana Association for Justice. Outside of work, he is still a big fan of competitive sports, fitness and the arts.
