Bruce Hopson

Bruce Hopson has protected the rights of his clients in the Metropolitan St. Louis area and throughout the State of Missouri for nearly 20 years. He grew up around the legal community—his father was a law professor and dean—so defending and safeguarding those in need has always been second nature to him. Mr. Hopson received his bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, specializing in news editorial.  He earned his law degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law.

Respected by his clients and by his peers in the legal profession, Mr. Hopson has served in multiple bar associations over the years. He is currently President-Elect of the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and will become President in May, 2011. Additionally, he has been active in the American Bar Association, serving on governing boards for the Young Lawyers Division and General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division.

Mr. Hopson has been awarded an AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, which is the highest rating given.

When not representing clients, he is an avid swimmer, from his college days as captain of his varsity swim team to today regularly ranking among the top ten swimmers in the United States in his age group.
