I have been using Mr. Hopson since September of 2007.
During these three years I have found Mr. Hopson to be very skilled and knowledgeable in every area that I have requested assistance on.
Ed has always responded in a timely manner with good and factual information. He is very knowledgeble and just a pleasure to work with.
What I personally like about Ed is his quick response to my questions. Also he has always been very pleasant minded and never have I felt it was the wrong time for me to be calling him.
I give Mr Hopson my highest recommendation and feel he would be an asset to anyone in need of a good attorney.
