James Hoover

About me

Hello,


Thank you for visiting my Avvo website. 


Perhaps you are contemplating or going through a divorce or separation, which is a time of crisis and confusion as to your rights and responsibilities, and your emotional, financial at perhaps physical welfare, and that of your children.  It's my honor to provide you a one hour, confidential and free consultation in order to address any questions or issues and create a strategy or a road map for you.


I am an experienced family law attorney.  I graduated top 2% of my law school class and I have earned the prestigious status of Certified Family Law Specialist, an honor by the California State Bar bestowed upon only approximately 10% of the family law attorneys.  I will use this expertise but also my experience and common sense to help you.


I look forward to helping in any way I can. 


Sincerely,


 Jim
