About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    I represent clients in divorce, custody, child support, alimony and all matters concerning divorce proceedings.

    25 years

  2. Criminal defense
    I handle any and all criminal cases in Alabama. I mainly represent clients who have pending charges in North Alabama counties. I do not practice in the Federal Court System but can direct clients to attorneys that can assist them. I have many years experience in criminal defense. I have handled cases ranging from speeding tickets to homicide cases. In addition to my defense experience I also was a prosecutor for six years. This was valuable experience.

    25 years

  3. DUI and DWI
    As a police officer many years ago I arrested drivers suspected of DUI. As an Assistant District Attorney for six years I prosecuted those charged with DUI. As a defense attorney I have defended many who were charged with DUI. This experience enables me to represent my clients and decide the best course of action needed to handle their case. DUI can be very costly to those arrested. You need an attorney with experience in trying these cases as they are more complex than some may realize.

    25 years


Born in Gadsden and raised in Marshall County Alabama where I have lived all my life.  I have always had an interest in law.  In my early teens I would read any and all law books I could get my hands on.  It was always my goal to one day practice law. After high school I begain working in the maintenance department at the Albertville Nursing Home and attending Snead State College.  When I turned 21 I was hired as a police officer in Albertville and dropped out of college.  But the desire to go to law school only grew stronger so I left the police department and enrolled back in school.  By the time I graduated college and applied for law school I was married with a baby on the way.  So there was no option for me but to continue to work as I attended law school.  I admit it was hard working almost full time and going full time to law school but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.  Having struggled through tough finanical times helps me relate to clients who are doing the same.  Unlike some attorneys I understand what it is like to live pay check to pay check.  Over the years my practice has focused on Divorce, Custody and Criminal Defense.  I try to handle each client's case as if I were in their shoes.  I want my clients to know that I take their case serious.  I believe in hard work, being prepared and being honest and straight forward with clients.

Mark Hopper the "Lion"
I hired Mark Hopper to represent me in two criminal cases that I was falsely accused in. He's a complete professional and an absolute "Lion" in the court room. No only did he win these cases for me he made sure that my accusers regret what they did.

Endorse Mark
DUI and DWI Attorney | Mar 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Mark, as opposing counsel, on many cases when he was a prosecutor. I have gotten to know him well. The defense bar is fortunate to have him - now that he is on "our side" - and, I consider him a valuable resource for information and perspective. He obviously brings a unique perspective to his clients, and fellow defense lawyers, with the advantage of knowing the "other side's" approach. I imagine sitting in his office as a prospective client would be very reassuring - he is genuine and easy to talk to, in addition to knowing his trade. His knowledge and courtroom ability would be an asset to any client. And, importantly, you can trust what he tells you - always. He would be a great lawyer to have on your side."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 18
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mark has such a genuine heart for his clients, and for the United States and Alabama Constitutions which protect them. He used to work for the District Attorney's office so he knows the game from both sides. If you're even just wondering if you need a lawyer, the answer is definitely "Yes," and the criminal lawyer you need is Mark Hopper."
