Years ago, Mr. Hoge was on the opposing side of a family members divorce. So when I began the difficult process of leaving my spouse, I knew exactly who I was calling! I made my desires clear and he did everything he could to get me what my children and I needed. William and his staff accomplished things quickly while keeping me informed. He fought hard for me when I really needed help. I recommend him to anyone going through a divorce or custody issues. Thank you so much William and Lois!
If you're reading this and you are anything like I was...you're probably thinking "this is not what I envisioned for my life; dear God, where can I go to find sage counsel in an effort to find some safety and sanity in the midst of this nightmare?" Dissolving my marriage of 20 years was very similar to experiencing a death. I felt every emotion associated with the grieving process. Billy Hoge walked shoulder to shoulder with me through those very dark and trying days. He was my voice when I couldn't find one. He was my courage when had none. He brought calm to the chaos. In the end, Billy secured the assets and the guarantee of those assets in order to secure my future and start a new life. He was fair, honest and stayed the course. He fought the good fight for me; for that, I will always be grateful to him! What Billy achieved for me, others would deem to have been impossible. All my thanks to both Billy and Lois; my life wouldn't be the same without either of you!
Mr Hoge is handling a difficult and complicated divorce for me. He and his staff have been there for me 110% from day one. His knowledge seems endless on any situation which has come up and if for some reason he does not have the answer he knows someone who does! He always kept me informed on every aspect of the proceedings and spent many hours beyond the Monday to Friday and 5PM normal office hours working hard for me. There is no one else I would rather have on my side than Mr. Hoge. He will give you everything he has in and out of the courtroom and make sure you get the best results possible.
In 2008 we found ourselves unfortunately in the middle of a long distance visitation dispute. Our local Attorney referred us to Mr. Hoge with the statement of “I did some research and he is the best" and he was correct. We have had the pleasure of having Mr. Hoge as our legal counsel in KY from 2008 to present. He and his staff (Lois) have been/are very professional, helpful and kind in a difficult and ongoing issue. They are caring, considerate, responsive and very knowledgeable. They have worked with us the entire way, explained everything thoroughly and are worth their weight in gold as far as we are concerned. We would highly recommend Billy to anyone who is in need of a world class Attorney.
At the initial consultation, he assured me he would represent me in court if needed, but the paperwork would be handled by his paralegals. It turned out that everything was forwarded to another attorney, who did not customarily handle family / post divorce cases. He was unresponsive and defensive in his dealings with me.
When I questioned Bill Hoge about the attorney, he was downright nasty about it - and that's putting it mildly. Never again.
Mr. Hoge and his staff handled my contentious divorce and custody battle. They let me know about any activity in my case on the same day it occurred, I never had to wonder if we had received a response or an opinion from the court. We developed an action plan so I knew what to expect and what I had to do to help myself. During a very difficult point in the process Mr. Hoge made himself available after hours and on the weekend. My children and I were in strong and very capable hands. He was diligent in going after the issues that were important to me like custody and the visitation schedule and my premarital assets, but also helped me gain perspective and reasonable expectations.
My son's straightforward divorce languished in the hands of another lawyer for 10 months. I went to Bill and asked for advice, then help. He filed a flurry of motions, demanded updated financials, selected a top mediatior, scheduled mediation, got my son and his parents focused on the realities of the situation, negotatiated a comprehensive property settlement in mediation, filed the proof and decree - and brought this mess to an end in about 5 weeks. His charges were fair and his paralegal, Lois, gave us priority attention. Thanks Billy and Lois for the service you performed for our family.
