For more than 90 years, McDonald Hopkins has been thriving and evolving as a firm because we embrace ambitious, entrepreneurial attorneys and professionals who understand the importance of hard work and exceptional client service. Individually and together as part of our more than 50 service and industry teams, McDonald Hopkins attorneys focus on providing insightful legal solutions that exceed expectations – that’s how we cultivate intensely loyal and successful clients.

Our culture is one that encourages professional growth and rewards merit. We take a firm-wide approach to business development across all practice and office groups, enabling teamwork and regional/national growth in each of our markets. By adhering to our Core Values of integrity, client service, teamwork, entrepreneurship and quality of life, we’ve built a business model that works. 





McDonald Hopkins’ collaborative, inclusive, and entrepreneurial culture provides a unique environment where attorneys can grow and thrive. Our focus is on working together to produce the best outcomes for our clients without the structural constraints found in many large law firms.

From a recruiting perspective, this means that we hire intelligent, driven people and provide them with the resources, training, and support to develop their practices in areas of law they enjoy. We also hire people we like, people we believe will be invigorated by our mission and Core Values. We know that a diverse and inclusive environment that values teamwork is the best way to provide exceptional client service and create an engaging place to work.

We simply believe that when people enjoy what they do and like where they work, they can focus all of their talents and creativity on representing clients and providing the best legal services. We encourage our attorneys to grow as fast as their abilities will let them by providing immediate exposure to substantive matters and by recognizing and rewarding success. This approach has worked for our attorneys and for the firm as we continue to have sophisticated work and impressive growth.

Our entrepreneurial approach translates to our new associate hiring, lateral recruiting, and law clerk training. We are looking for well-rounded people who seek a dynamic work environment and subscribe to our Core Values: Integrity, Client Service, Teamwork, Entrepreneurship, and Quality of Life. We have created a vibrant workplace where good work matters and every attorney has the opportunity to develop the career they have always wanted.
