When An Authority Figure Violates Your Trust … Or An Accident Changes Your Life
With more than 40 years of experience, lawyer Pat Hopkins handles cases of sexual abuse as well as personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.
Fighting For Victims Of Abuse Across Iowa
Victims of sexual abuse face a simple truth: When past traumas are ignored and memories are buried, time does not heal all wounds.
Whether the abuse occurred yesterday, last month or decades ago, the trauma of abuse remains. Its ramifications may continue through the decades. For abusers, no justice equals no consequences. No consequences equal more victims.
Put Your Trust In Attorney Pat Hopkins
Abuse victims often remain silent for decades. Often, the first time an individual may talk about being abused is during a consultation with Pat at his West Des Moines office. He will take your circumstances seriously, and he promises ongoing confidentiality and discretion throughout the legal process.
Over the past decade, Pat Hopkins has focused on emotionally charged, legally complex cases involving sexual exploitation by authority figures across Iowa.

To successfully move from being a victim of sexual abuse to being a survivor of sexual abuse, certain things are clear. Survivors recognize that the abuse needs to be confronted. On that journey, help from professionals always comes first.

Others want to know and understand their rights and the hurdles to be confronted in bringing their abuser to justice. Whatever the right decision is for you, Pat Hopkins will be there to hear your story, explain your options and assist you on your journey.
