Jason P. Hopper’s career as a domestic litigation attorney is centered on achieving high levels of client satisfaction and most importantly results.
His efforts have resulted in his being recognized as a leader within the firm in the area of client satisfaction. Since joining Cordell & Cordell in 2010, Mr. Hopper has worked with hundreds of clients and maintained an average client satisfaction score exceeding 98% over the course of his decade plus with the firm.
Mr. Hopper understands the need of many of his clients to have their day in court, and to have their voices as well as the interests of their children to be heard. According to Mr. Hopper, “All too often I enter into an initial consultation with a prospective client who has been bullied into submitting to a custody arrangement or temporary order that the client clearly is either not comfortable with or which fails to account for their specific situation. I find it vital that the prospective client leaves the initial meeting with a plan of attack laid out that can best meet their goals if they grant me the privilege of working with them.”
Mr. Hopper has extensive trial experience in all areas of domestic relations. He enjoys advocating for clients in the realm of child custody litigation, often defending clients against allegations of domestic violence. Mr. Hopper has stated, “California’s Domestic Violence Prevention Act is intended to be a shield – a vitally important shield to protect victims of abuse. Unfortunately, though, what was designed to promote safety to victims is instead increasingly used as a tactical weapon to gain an upper hand in litigation. Many fathers who are otherwise exemplary in their parenting and who have strong relationships with their children, can lose joint decision-making and be relegated to a few hours of supervised visits per week if they do not take on mounting a vigorous defense against trumped up DV claims seriously from the outset. I enjoy partnering with clients who understand the importance of clearing their names from vicious smear campaigns.”
Mr. Hopper has ample experience working with experts in a number of forensic fields in pursuing such efforts.
Mr. Hopper regularly presents at the firm’s “Cordell College” attorney development program and mentors a number of younger litigators within the firm each year. Mr. Hopper is a member of the Placer County (California) Bar Association.
