Certified Family Law Specialist, Client Centered, Compassionate and Aggressive Representation on YOUR Family Law Matter

Face it, family law issues are not easy for the person experiencing it.  You are dealing with the most sensitive and important of issues that are core to your being: your family, your assets, and your financial wellbeing.  If I am granted the privilige of working with YOU the litigant, I seek to focus on your wants, needs and concerns.  

YOUR family law matter is and will be your most important matter.  I hope I can make it MY most important matter.

My career as a domestic litigation attorney is centered on achieving high levels of client satisfaction and most importantly results.

I am designated a Certified Family Law Specialist in the State of California, by the State Bar of California.  I have over 15 years of litigation experience in Northern California and Indiana, with all areas of domestic relations, focusing regularly on divorce and paternity cases where child custody issues have intersected with domestic violence claims.  I enjoy working with litigants who find themselvs initially bewildered and frustrated with the legal system and providing a light and a roadmap to guide them through trial when needed and achieving agreed resolution where possible.

In my prior endeavor, I was recognized ten consecutive years as a leader in achieving client satisfaction, maintaining a 98%+ satisfaction rating by surveyed clients whom I have had the pleasure of working with at a nation-wide domestic relations law firm.*

I am accepting legal engagements in the following fields in California or which may be litigated in California due to ties to California: divorce and legal separation, domestic violence restraining orders, child custody and visitation, community and separate property issues, business owner divorce, military divorce, spousal support and alimony including ability to work and vocational evaluation issues, child support, grandparent and non-parent visitation issues, pre-nuptial agreements, post-nuptial agreements, and guardianship actions.

I have had the privilege of being interviewed by a number of local and national media outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, ABC 10 Sacramento, CBS 8 San Diego, concerning domestic relations matters and have presented on a number of webinars and continuing education seminars to fellow attorneys and prospective clients.

A true professional ...
Mr. Hopper has been a great attorney and I am truly grateful for his assistance. He has been nothing but professional and is a great communicator and quite kind. I am impressed by his judgment and several other qualities. I would not consider another attorney should similar matters arise in the future.

Excellent Moves
I was so fortunate to hire Jason. For me it was a long search for a skilled and powerful attorney. His skills are perfect as he knows how to work with the court and counter opposing arguments. He reads deep into situations not obvious by the opposing group and brings them to the table. I am just so thankful for his help.

Hands down the best
Jason was competent, knowledgeable and extremely effective. I had a difficutlt move away custody case. Jason listened carefully to all the details and was able to translate that into the proper legal format and terminology crafting an approach that resulted in a better outcome than I could have even hoped for. Along the way he was responsive, professional and reassuring. I highly recommend Jason and his team.

Extremely talented Divorce and Family law Attorney
I believe my divorce would rank high on a scale of difficult and intense cases. Jason helped me navigate the many ups and downs that I faced during my journey. He is extremely knowledgeable of the law, and he always knew what the next best steps were to be taken. I truly appreciate the guidance and professionalism that he provided to me during a trying time in my life, and cannot thank him enough for his continued support many years later. I am certain that Jason is at the very top of his game.

Responsive, competent service!
Jason was incredibly helpful, and professional, at guiding me through a post-divorce child dispute (over a public vs private school impasse) that my my ex had escalated to an RFO with the courts. Through Jason’s timely advice, we were able to successfully overcome the dispute, while also keeping a judgement out of the decision of the courts.

Super Lawyer
Jason was fantastic. He was extremely patient, professional and knowledgeable. My ex spouse was contentious and rigid. Jason provided with excellent guidance and was willing to go to bat for my kids whenever needed. He turned a truly difficult case into a positive experience.

Mr. T vs. Mrs. T
From the beginning to the end of my case. Mr. Hopper fought for everything I wanted and I was amazed I got everything I asked for. His knowledge of family law in and out of court was second to none. Thank you Mr. Hopper and Thank you 107.7 the Bone.

Review for Jason Hopper
Jason handled my divorce, I HIGHLY recommend Jason. He is highly knowledgeable, very personable, and helps through every step of what can be a very difficult process. My divorce was very amicable, and Jason offered great advise, for a fair outcome for everyone involved.

Outstanding advocate
Jason was my attorney through a very difficult child support battle post-divorce. He was a calm, reassuring voice during a very turbulent and troubled time. He was very good at helping me separate the legal wheat from the chaff, filtering out the threats and focusing me on what my ex could legally do and what my legal responsibilities would be. Jason was attorney, sounding board and occasional counselor during that time. I wasn’t just another client to him. I felt he had a genuine interest in my case and treated me as such. I would recommend him with neither hesitation nor reservation. He’s a great attorney in addition to just an upstanding individual.

The best attorney in IN
Jason Hopper is an excellent attorney, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal matters settled. He worked very diligently on my case, and kept me informed of any new developments. I live out of state, which is hard enough, and I feel like he worked hard on my case especially since it was a custody battle. I ended up going home with my children, it was a wonderful victory.

Feb-Aug 08 divorce case
Jason was able to effectively handle the oddities and intracies of my case and remained personable and professional throughout the toughest of times. He tailored his approach to suit the specific needs that came with handling a convoluded case with a military member, and gave me clear guidance every step of the way.

Attorney Jason Hopper Review
Mr. Jason Hopper, of Hollingsworth and Zivitz Law Firm, is an extremely professional, articulate, and professional attorney. When he represented me, he was extremely proactive and aggressively sought every possible avenue to win my case. After accepting my case, I never had to contact him to ask for a status; instead, he contacted me regularly to let me know what was going on and the approach that he was going to take. Once we entered the court, he fought diligently and had no reservations about objecting to motions by the opposing party. In my particular case, I contacted two other attorneys in Indianapolis prior to contacting Mr. Hopper, and they both told me that I had no possibility of winning. Not only did Jason Hopper take my case, but he won it. I would strongly encourage any person in need of legal assistance to contact Mr. Hopper - you'll be glad that you did!!

Trustworthy and professional, Jason got me the best deal!
I received a DUI on Feb.2nd 2009 in Hamilton Co. Jason kept me informed on everything that I should expect to happen. Furthermore, I received less punishment than each of the other 5 DUI cases in front of me....much less!
Posted by anonymous | October 29, 2014
I found Jason's preparation to be sorely lacking. One of our issues revolved around the court's ability to assign a Parenting Coordinator against the wishes of one parent (me). The sum total of Jason's research was pulling a couple of quasi-related cases off the web. Surely mine was not the first Parenting Coordinator case they've had.

Deer in the Headlights
I had a rather complex divorce. We basically had no money to speak of, in fact had filed for bankruptcy. My now ex insisted that I would not divorce her without paying to support her...we have no children. Her atty pushed for spousal maintenance due to disability...even though she had been turned down for disability 3 times. She has fibromyalgia, but it is absolutely not disabling. Her attorney kicked his ass, and when he was in front of her start witness...a quack...Dr. Ralph Waldo...Hopper folded like a lawn chair. The ex was scorned and wanted revenge. Well she got it. I have to pay her PERMANENT spousal maintenance. Hopper was so outclassed and green. I should have seen it coming. He was resting on the fact that she had been turned down for SS disability so many times. I gave him 1 star because he was responsive and personable...but unfortunately for me quite incompetant...and that is a big problem. Oh...and my bill was over $20K
