Jason Hopper

Practice Manager

Noblesville Divorce Lawyer Jason HopperJason P. Hopper’s passion for family law comes from seeing tears flowing in his office almost daily.

“I often see people when the bottom has fallen out of their lives, and they simply need help finding their way again,” he said.

According to Mr. Hopper, there is nothing more personal and important in a person’s life than their children and their financial security.

“If you have ever been fortunate enough to help someone when they needed it the most it is a pretty incredible feeling,” Mr. Hopper said. “I got to experience this feeling with my first family law client, and continue to experience it on almost a daily basis when I assist my clients in putting together a plan to put the pieces of their lives back together.”

When representing any father in domestic litigation, Mr. Hopper said he strives to analyze his client’s needs and goals, and then develop a comprehensive and collaborative strategy to achieve those goals and deliver the best possible results.
