Review Del Hovden

About Me

Many attorneys on this site  and others may seem to have high "ratings" but are they real? Do these attorneys really handle cases, go to court and try lawsuits?  The highest  rating possible from the largest rating service of lawyers in the world, Martindale- Hubbell, where Del is rated AV Preeminent. Less than 10% of all attorneys achieve this rating, and then only after at least a decade of experience. 


Del has been practicing personal injury law for 35 years. He and his partner and their team have been together for over 30 years.


Del would be pleased to answer any questions you may have in the fields of personal injury, elder abuse, big rig truck accidents, medical malpractice, as well as automobile accidents, premises lliability (such as slip/trip and fall), products liabililty, medical device and similar cases.
