My Divorce was the most difficult process that I ever went through in my entire life. Jim was excellent in representing my interests and keeping me calm and focused through the entire ordeal. He understands the law and knows how to apply it. I think most importantly, he knows "the system" and how things really get done.
I hope I never need his services again but if I do there would be no hesitation to use him again - without question!

My team at Hoover Krepelka was exceptional, with James Hoover taking the lead. I first met James over three years ago for an initial consultation. This first meeting involved weighing my legal options for custody of my daughter who was only four-months-old at the time. It was a very painful and confusing season in my life, however, the meeting with James Hoover eliminated one of many worries. I knew I had found the right legal council to guide me through all the potential roads and barriers that could unfold as I separated and worked through private meditation to obtain more and more custody of my young daughter. As fate would have it, two years later I found myself going to court to seek 50% custody of a three-year-old. Though taxing physically, emotionally, and financially, my team at Hoover Krepelka assembled an incredible case and, ultimately, we succeeded in gaining 50% custody. The Hoover Krepelka team was thorough, efficient (with time and costs), and highly prepared and professional. I knew I had the best team. In the end, I am extremely grateful for the outcome – 50% custody of my daughter.

I endorse this lawyer. Jim is able to balance his role as advocate for his client while maintaining his professionalism with opposing counsel. This is not true for all attorneys and speaks to Jim's capabilities as a reputable attorney.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I highly endorse Jim. I have had several cases with Jim and his office. He is always communicative and genuinely willing to work in a cooperative manner. I appreciate Jim's approach in cases and believe he is a skilled attorney with years of experience.
