Knowledgeable and personable!
My fiance and I received advice from Greg about my options for post-graduate immigration plans amidst COVID-19. He patiently walked us through the various routes we could take and what we should watch out for. Super nice guy and a pleasure to talk to!

Trustworthy attorney
I hired Mr. Hoover as my defense attorney in a criminal misdemeanor case. He was knowledgable, kind and trustworthy. He listened to me attentively and was always there to help me find the best solution to my case. I couldn't thank Mr. Hoover more on defending my case. He is an attorney of integrity. I recommend him to anyone who is facing a criminal charge. He is a great criminal defense attorney.

Aggressively Defends You
Greg did a fantastic job defending me. He was quick to respond and the advice he gave me has proven itself worth its weight in gold. He was able to get my charge dropped with prejudice. He will not waste your time and will do all that he can to aggressively defend you and your rights!

A wonderful immigration lawyer
Mr. Hoover was very helpful to me in my application for US Citizenship. Not only was he meticulous and thorough in his preparation of my materials, upon the date of my interview, he went above and beyond the call of duty when some unexpected complications arose. I am very grateful to Mr. Hoover for his work, and would highly recommend his services.

Gregory Hoover, Immigration Attorney in Portland
I had a tough immigration case. I did some online research, and Mr Hoover looked like a good candidate to help me. We set up a meeting in Portland. It turned out the meeting place was a public restaurant in the Lloyd center. Mr Hoover greeted me and led me to a table. The waitstaff there appeared to be quite familiar with Mr Hoover. We started discussing my case. I got quite uncomfortable because he spoke very loudly and talked about private details that I did not want broadcast to the world. The waitstaff at the restaurant referred to Mr Hoover as 'that criminal defense attorney'. I would say that Mr Hoover really tried to scare me, telling stories and mentioning deadlines for applying for citizenship. (This was in January of 2017). I agreed to pay $500 for a 'Letter of Opinion'. This was not a good deal for me. I received the letter of opinion, a few days after we had arranged for its delivery. It contained no new or salient information for me and my case. On the basis of the personal interview with Mr Hoover, I decided not to retain him as my immigration attorney. I found someone else, and I am grateful, as that attorney actually did help me gain citizenship without fear tactics or public humiliation.

Avoid it for a divorce. Like all lawyers he works for him, to prolong the divorce and bill you the maximum
Response from Gregory Hoover January 12, 2021
I dispute this comment as I do not know who it is from. My billing is always reasonable and fair to the clients.
