ATLANTA (February 8, 2023) – Brad Coppedge, recognized as a regional leader in estate planning and administration, has joined the law firm of Goggans, Stutzman, Hudson, Wilson & Mize, LLP.
With more than 25 years of experience, Brad brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the firm.

He also advises clients on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements.
“While much of our firm is focused on real estate, estate planning goes hand-in-hand with home buying. It’s a milestone for most people who need guidance on how to protect their assets and estate. Brad brings that expertise to our firm as well as his commitment to the Columbus and Atlanta communities. We look forward to how his estate planning practice will serve our clients,” said Partner D. Nicholas Stutzman.
In addition to estate planning, Brad’s practice covers a wide variety of business matters including business transactions and entity selection and formation with full consideration of the most favorable tax, liability and operational issues through LLCs, c-corporations, s-corporations, partnerships and joint ventures. Brad also maintains an active probate and estate administration practice, which includes representing clients in the probate of wills, estate administration and year’s support proceedings.
A member of the Georgia Bar since 1996 and the Alabama Bar since 1998, Brad is admitted to practice before the United States Tax Court and is a member of the Columbus Bar Association and the Atlanta Estate Planning Council. Brad is AV-rated by martindale.com, with a 4.9/5.0 Peer and 5.0/5.0 Client rating. He also has an AVVO rating of a perfect 10.0.
Brad’s practice is based out of the Columbus office, but regularly serves the needs of his clients in the greater Atlanta area through the Firm’s several Atlanta offices. A native of Columbus, Brad has a strong commitment to the community and his many clients. He regularly speaks at both local and regional events on the topics of estate planning and choice of entity.
