Mr. Van Hook's attention to detail, research and knowledge of case law are amazing. His tact with engagement of the court, prosecution and jury is something to behold. From my initial interview to adjudication, Mr. Van Hook made it a point to always communicate the possible outcomes and emphasize the strengths of the case while balancing mitigating factors such as previous record, evidence and intent of the prosecution. His adeptness in jury selection and the ability to navigate the judicial system are beyond reproach.
His ability to seamlessly interact with the Court, prosecution and jury should serve as an example for all attorneys.
I cannot thank Mr. Van Hook enough for being willing to take a case to trial that defended rights.
