Talented and affable attorney for complex family matter
Tad represented me in a complex child custody/visitation case involving many parties. He was competent, prepared, and made himself readily available to me for over 7 months until it was resolved in my favor. On top of that, he was personable and empathetic throughout. I highly recommend Tad for any family matter. I certainly plan to use him in the future.

Professional, caring and knowledgeable
I hired Tad during my custody dispute with my ex-wife over our son. He was very knowledgeable and proactive about our case. We ended up getting the results we wanted and it was largely due to Tad's understanding of the laws. I would definitely recommend Tad to someone looking for a family lawyer!

Absentee lawyer
My initial hearing was scheduled when he was not available, he assured me the other lawyer would know what we wanted to do. The other lawyer requested the wrong type of drug test. I ended up having to dismiss the case. Also couldn't get in contact with him after a week of trying. His office kept saying he would call me in 5 minutes. Ended up calling another lawyer in the firm to get it dismissed. All in all a $3000 dollar mistake for one initial hearing.

Response from Tad Hoover February 2, 2018
Unfortunately, my office is unable to always control how a case proceeds because that is the job of a Judge or Magistrate. While representing each client my office makes specific requests on the behalf of that client, but the Judge or Magistrate ultimately makes the decision on how the case will proceed. Occasionally a Judge or Magistrate will make an order or decision contrary to our requests. In this case our client wished to voluntarily dismiss his case shortly after the first initial hearing and shortly after the inception of the case before a majority of the legal representation takes place. Further, my firm approaches all cases with the team approach, where multiple attorneys may work on the same case. Because tight schedules sometimes do not allow for client contact right away, other attorneys are always available to speak with clients and advise on all matters. This team approach is spelled out in full detail in my firm's retainer agreement which each client reads and signs before my representation begins. Upon receiving any call, if a lead attorney is unable to speak with the client an attorney with knowledge of their case will return a call within 24-48 hours and the lead attorney will be in contact as soon as their schedule permits. Last, a representative of the United States post office picks up all outgoing mail on a daily basis. After parcels are picked up by the post office my office has no control when the parcels will be processed and delivered. This case was also continued the day of the first scheduled hearing on the request of the opposing counsel. The matter was rescheduled six weeks from the original hearing date. This is another example of how the Judge of Magistrate ultimately controls how a case proceeds. However, In this instance, because of my office's knowledge of the court, my office was ultimately able to secure a hearing date only six days after the original scheduled hearing date. We are sorry you feel you were underrepresented, but maintain all actions taken were appropriate and above the average representation in the legal community.

"Tad is an expert in DWI and DUI defense. He has completed the same training taken by police officers who conduct the field sobriety tests, and as such, has the tools to fight the prosecution's case. I highly recommend this lawyer."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Aug 20
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I met Tad at a multi-day specialized DUI defense training course. As part of this training we received the same training police officers receive to administer field sobriety tests. An attorney has to know what police are supposed to do right to know what they did wrong. His participation in this DUI focused training has demonstrated a superior commitment to Justice for his clients by actively, and consistently, seeking and participating in extensive specialized training. I recommend this attorney."

"Tad is a strong advocate for his clients. Criminal law is an ever changing field of law. He is constantly keeping up with the latest legal updates. I do hesitate recommending Tad to anyone who needs his services."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Aug 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Tad is certified to conduct standardized field sobriety tests using the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines. Because of this certification, Tad knows how to explain what you, the accused, did right on a sobriety test, and what the arresting officer did wrong. Tad should be among your first choices for any OVI/DUI/DWI case. I highly recommend this attorney."
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Tad is a young, energetic, intelligent criminal defense lawyer, who has taken the same certification course the police officers take to learn the standardized field sobriety tests, and has taken the same proficiency test and become certified in their use, just as the police have. Because of this, he is able to spot and exploit issues in a traffic alcohol case that other attorneys would miss. This might mean the difference between a conviction and an acquittal for a client. I would strongly recommend him for a traffic alcohol case, or any other criminal case."
