Hopefully, you concur.

If you disagree with the use of "hopefully" in the title sentence above, you apparently are now in the minority in the U.S. The broader acceptance of the word is reported here. Since legal writing tends to lag popular writing, most legal writing professors should be safe in continuing to mark this use of "hopefully" as inappropriate for the intended audience.
