About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Since 1999, I have represented clients charged with crimes ranging from DUI to First Degree Murder.  My other primary practice area is domestic law.  While many cases are resolved without going to trial, I have served as lead counsel in over 30 jury trials and have the experience necessary if your case cannot be resolved.  This experience allows me to give you a realistic assessment of your situation so that I can help guide your through the difficult decisions you will be making about your case.

A great lawyer !
David was excellent from the start. He informed me of the best and worst case scenarios and gave me his expert advice on how he thought we should approach my case with the best results. I ended up getting the best results in my case and I owe it all to David Hopkin's expert advise and knowledge. He listened to my concerns and I am more than pleased with his representation of me and my case and would more than strongly recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer.

Responsive, Attentive and Knowledgeable
Trouble came knocking on a Saturday afternoon. I was scared and needed advice. But it was Saturday. I used Avvo to locate a lawyer in my area. I selected David based on his breadth of practice and sent a contact request. I figured it would be Tuesday before I received a response, since Monday was the MLK holiday. My mind was racing and I was preparing to take action on my own. David returned my contact request on a Sunday in the middle of a holiday weekend. We consulted and he put my mind at rest. I now had an expert opinion as to the severity of the issue and what action I needed to take. I am now planning to discuss our entire family's legal needs with David.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"David and I are working on a very complex federal criminal case together. We met when he was accepted to the very prestigious federal criminal justice act panel and we have become good friends. I am guessing David is the youngest if not one of the youngest lawyers to be accepted to this panel which speaks a whole lot to his skills as a lawyer. He is very bright and personable and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent criminal defense attorney."
