Wonderful Lawyer
I have used Mr. Hoen's services on two occasions, and on both occasions his services were superb! He was able anytime I needed, and always eager to answer any questions I had. He also was very compassionate towards my situation, and always made sure I was doing well before/after my case.

Justice Is Served...
After months and months of frustration attempting to handle the logistics of my husband's workers compensation case we sought legal counsel from Mr Hoen's firm. It was such a relief to have someone with such professionalism and knowledge take the lead and offer his expertise in navigating this difficult situation. He and his staff have been the epitome of professionalism and taken every measure within the limits of the law to ensure that we received a fair and just outcome.

Thank you
Mr. Hoen and his staff has always shown the proper concern and professionalism with every aspect of my case. He has even gone as far as to communicate with me while he was at home or out on holiday. If I ever need an attorney again, he is the one u would call. I would recommend Mr. Hoen to anyone who is need of an atturney.

An attorney that is easy to talk to.
Although I have hired Mr. Hoen to handle a legal matter for me personally in the past, I most often work with him through my patients. I have had many opportunities to see how he handled issue that arise for my patients when they have been involved in motor vehicle accidents. And, although he is always professional and by many measures an excellent litigator, I feel one of his greatest strengths is in his communication to his clients. Mr. Hoen will not talk down to his clients, barrage them with legal-eze, or leave them without a good understanding of their position. Should a patient or I ever need to get a hold of him, and that is rare, it is never a problem. I can recommend him without hesitation.
