Excellent Legal Help for my Accident
The entire time I worked with Mr. Hoover, he kept me informed and comforted with all possibilities regarding my case. He provided me with information to make sure I was taken care of and more than exceeded my expectations as a legal firm and with the results of my accident. I'm very impressed and would not hesitate to go to him again if needed.

Robert Hoover Was Great
I was in a car accident and had spoken to some attorneys but had not hired any of them. My chiropractor recommended that I speak with Robert Hoover he said that he was really the only attorney who when they spoke, cared about the patient's health. I am really glad that I did. Robert Hoover was extremely helpful, easily accessible and I could tell that he really cared about my case. With his help I was able to get a very fair settlement. What I also liked about him is that he took a very calm, level headed approach to my whole claim and he believed in dealing with everyone in the claim process with respect and it worked. I am very happy that I got help from Robert Hoover and very happy with the final settlement.

Mr. Hoover was Excellent
I was a passenger in a car that got rear ended in 2018, this accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury that drastically changed my life. I hired Mr. Hoover to represent me shortly after getting out of the hospital, and it was one of the smartest choices I have made in my life. Mr. Hoover went above and beyond the scope of traditional Personal Injury lawyer throughout my recovery. Due to his professional relationship with the top neurologists and treating medical professionals in Colorado, I was able get the help I needed to restart my life. Mr. Hoover never treated me as "just another case", he spent countless hours getting to know me and my issues, all while acting with empathy and persistence to get me the recovery I deserved. He took the time to explain every step in my case, what my realistic possibilities were, as well as explained all of the legal jargon I had no context for. Not once throughout the 3+ years of my case did I have trouble getting into contact with Mr. Hoover. I cannot express how grateful I am to have had Mr. Hoover as my attorney, he helped me get the medical attention I needed rather than sending me to "experts" that look good on paper, and got me the recovery I deserved. If you want a lawyer who will treat you with respect and dignity while fighting tooth and nail for you, Hire Mr. Hoover!

Mr. Hoover is a Top-Notch Lawyer
I sought legal help from Robert Hoover after sustaining injuries in a motor vehicle accident. Throughout the entire process, Mr. Hoover was compassionate, responsive, communicative, and thorough. He took time to answer all of my questions, in a comprehensible manner, without ever making me feel rushed or judged. Moreover, Mr. Hoover handled my case in a timely manner and ensured I received proper compensation. Mr. Hoover made the best out of a bad situation and I would seek his help, without hesitation, in the future.
