Brian R. Murphy
Andy Cogbill practices in the areas of personal injury, guardianship, and real estate with the Brian R. Murphy Law Firm for cases in both North and South Carolina. His previous experience working as an Assistant Clerk of Superior Court in Charlotte, gives him an “other side of the bench” perspective that often benefits the firm’s clients. Andy has worked as a guardian ad litem representing disabled and special needs adults. Andy has found guardianship work rewarding and said “this work has helped me keep perspective on the daily issues people generally face, in comparison with the issues severely handicapped or ill people face daily. These cases are a solid reminder that most of us need help at some point in our lives. It also helps remind me that court can be a frightening or uncomfortable experience for anyone, but that good things happen for people in court as well.” Andy sees himself as a “problem solver” that happens to work in law.
“Solving problems and trying to reach the best outcome is a satisfying accomplishment – in or out of the courtroom."
