ATTORNEYS

The lawyers of Hopkins Roden are a group of dedicated professionals jointly committed to furthering the interests of the firm’s clients in the most effective and efficient way possible. Each member of the firm brings unique talent, expertise and perspective to the collective whole, and these biographies are intended to offer a brief glimpse of that experience and knowledge, as well as individual contact information. It is always the client’s ultimate prerogative to choose specific counsel for representation. But any member of the firm will freely offer guidance and recommendations about the lawyer or lawyers within the firm whose particular knowledge and expertise may be best suited to serve a given client’s specific needs.
