Joshua handled my appeal on a very complicated case and won. I watched him present his case and can say without question he was the best prepared, made a clear case that was seamless.

I am very pleased in the way Joshua Hopstone handled my case.
He was clear, concise, always available and responsive. With his help, I very quickly reached the result I was seeking. I highly recommend Mr. Hopstone should you have the need for his services.

It can be intimidating consulting with a lawyer but when working with Josh the walls come down instantly. From the second you hear Josh's friendly and soft voice you know you are being cared for. Josh takes the utmost pride in the service he is providing. His questions are focused and detailed, which allows him to research and respond effectively. What I have found with lawyers is getting feedback from them can be analogous to the confusion one gets when a mechanic tells them what's wrong with their car; they are speaking another language. Josh speaks your language. If you don't get it the first time, he picks up on it and will make sure you understand before moving forward. You cannot be in better hands than working with Josh. Give him a shot. You will not be disappointed.

He is diligent and innovative in his approach to complex civil matters, and he gives each and every client the attention they deserve. I highly endorse this lawyer.
