Giovanna Copat serves as a legal assistant and member of the Client Services team. She joined The Veterans Consortium (TVC) in May 2018 and is responsible for assisting with client intake, court filings and monitoring court due dates. As a native Spanish speaker, Giovanna also assists with translation and communication with veterans and their family members from Spanish speaking communities.
Giovanna grew up in Los Angeles, CA until joining the U.S. Army, where she served active duty for three years as a Legal Clerk in Babenhausen, Germany. She then served an additional ten years with the Indiana Army National Guard [as a Legal Non Commissioned Officer].
Giovanna is a graduate of Indiana State University (BS, political science) and Indiana University Maurer School of Law (JD). She left the practice of law to raise her family and is now excited to rejoin the workforce with TVC Pro Bono Program. She is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this Program and team that helps veterans, who have been denied benefits, obtain legal assistance.
Giovanna currently lives in Maryland. She enjoys sightseeing road trips, cooking, loud music and attending rock concerts. She has two children: her daughter is an ROTC cadet and attends the University of Missouri and her son is a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
