Our Lawyers And What We Are All About

The Hopkins Law Firm, LLC, was founded on April 1, 2013, when the owner Bill Hopkins left the law practice of a large, national law firm in Montgomery, Alabama, and relocated to Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Bill is a native South Carolinian and has owned a home in Litchfield by the Sea for a number of years. The firm is conveniently located on Highway 17 (Ocean Highway) right between Pawleys Island and Litchfield Beach at the intersection of Highway 17 and Martin Luther King Highway. At Hopkins Law Firm, we believe the combined efforts of three established, respected and skilled attorneys is hard to beat.

Experience That Makes A Difference

Bill Hopkins leads our firm with more than 24 years of experience handling civil cases, including serving as lead counsel in 90 cases that have gone to jury verdict. This is a level of trial experience which you simply will not find in the surrounding areas. Bill's trial experience sets him apart from other local attorneys.

Ian Taylor attended law school at the North Carolina Central University School of Law and graduated in 2010. He provides probate, estate planning, injury and dispute resolution services to clients. He serves as the Horry County attorney for the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem representing the best interest of children in child abuse and neglect cases. Ian has a background in genetics and is passionate about helping consumers make better decisions regarding their legal needs.

Clay Hopkins joined his father in the practice in 2015, upon graduating from the University of Alabama School of Law. While in law school, Clay served as the executive editor of The Journal of the Legal Profession, where he gained valuable litigation experience. Clay is a member of the South Carolina Bar, the Horry County Bar Association, the Georgetown County Bar Association, the South Carolina Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice.

In addition to advising and representing individuals in lawsuits and class action litigation, our team of lawyers also represent business interests in commercial disputes and transactional matters.
