Patrick was very skillful helping my son through his legal difficulties. His advice, negotiation, and relationships were instrumental to my son. Now my son is entering Medical School thanks to Pat.

I hired Patrick Hoover to help my son who got in trouble with his school for having marijuana on school property. I went in for a consultation before my son's expulsion meeting and hired Mr. Hoover. He went through the whole process with me before hand and assured me that it should go rather smoothly since my son did not have that much pot on him. He was right. Mr. Hoover knew everyone at the meeting and seemed to know exactly what he was doing. He spoke up for my son and stood up for his right to a free and appropriate public education. He got my son back in school within the next day with a mere slap on the wrist and no suspension. He also went to the intake conference with us at the Department of Juvenile Services and got the intake officer to keep it from going to court. Overall, Mr. Hoover was an excellent attorney. He knew exactly what to say and I felt completely at ease knowing he was defending my son. He got my son back in school and kept him from having to go through the juvenile court system. I couldn't ask for a better attorney.

I got into some legal trouble and needed to find a good lawyer fast. After meeting with 4 different lawyers I met Mr. Hoover and was immediately impressed. He laid out everything that was going to happen in simple terms and seemed trustworthy. After hiring him he immediately began to work on my case and send me regular updates.
Prior to going to court he emailed employees for the state department and got me into a probation before judgment program (PBJ.)
As a result of this the judge expunged everything from my record very quickly and easily. I would recommend Mr. Hoover to my friends and family in a heart beat.
