Best Choice for an Attorney

I feel so fortunate that Lonnie Hoover was my attorney for a recent case. Not only did he get my case initially retired, it was eventually dismissed for a case that rarely gets dismissed in Williamson County. Although I knew of his reputation beforehand, his knowledge, professionalism, relationships in the court system, and attention to detail was beyond even what I expected. He treated me with the upmost respect despite the situation I was in. If anyone needs a defense attorney for the Williamson County court system, it would be a huge mistake if you don’t go with Judge Hoover. Choosing your attorney is a difficult task, and incredibly important for your desired outcome. Look no further for your Attorney – Choose Lonnie Hoover.

Lonnie Hoover’s response: Wow, PM, you honor me with your kind words. Thank you so very much for the great review. It was my pleasure representing you and I am delighted with the outcome. Congratulations on getting the case DISMISSED and EXPUNGED from your record. If I can be of service to you, your family or friends in the future, please give me a call. Best wishes, Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney

Awesome Attorney

Mr. Hoover represented me for a probation violation. His knowledge of the judicial system, available options, and specific guidance on corrective actions to take were invaluable. He has helped me not only navigate the judicial system for the best positive outcome but has helped me to choose a different path for my future. I highly recommend his services.

Kind, understanding, and gets things done!

I retained Mr. Hoover at a very stressful time in my life. I was charged with shoplifting when I inadvertently failed to scan some of my items at a self check out line. Mr. Hoover listened intently to my story when I met with him and took many notes. He keenly listened to me as he asked many questions and calmed my fears. I was so frightened and his reassurance that he would do the very best he could for me eased my worries. He told me to go home and do something for myself, as caring for others had gotten me into my agitated stressed out persona to begin with. He assured me that worrying about this situation wouldn’t change the outcome so to put my worries aside and let him get to work on it. When my court date came, we were hoping for a pretrial diversion, where I would remain on probation for a year and then have my record expunged. Never did I expect that he would be able to get my charge completely retired and I didn’t even have to appear before the Judge to plead! No charges on record! I was fighting back tears of joy! Mr. Hoover’s attention and empathy to me as a client was what made this happen. I highly recommend Mr Hoover as an advocate on your side in a criminal case. I can now put this behind me and move forward, and I owe it all to him.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Congratulations on a well deserved RETIREMENT of the theft charge and thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you. I am absolutely delighted that we were able to get your charge retired and ultimately dismissed and expunged from your record, and so very pleased that everything worked out even better than you expected. Your kind words are very appreciated. If I can be of service to you in the future, please let me know. Best wishes, Lonnie R. Hoover Attorney at Law”

Lonnie Hoover and his team were behind Amazing!

I contacted Mr. Hoover when I was faced with domestic assault charges. He was referred to me by a friend of mine who also had an amazing experience. Never in a million years would I have thought something like this would happen to me. When I met with Mr. Hoover the first time and explained what had happened, he was not only confident but prepared me for what was to come. He guided me throughout every step and the end result was my case being DISMISSED. He proceeded to file a motion for it to be expunged. I cannot thank him and his wonderful team enough for being so kind and answering all of my questions and mostly making me feel more at ease the entire process.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Kelly, thank you so much for the very kind review and especially for the nice comments about my office staff. It was my pleasure to represent you and I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. Congratulations on a well deserved DISMISSAL. Your charge will be fully expunged from your record! Please give me a call if you have any questions or need anything in the future. Best wishes, Lonnie R. Hoover Attorney at Law”

DUI First Offence Representation

Had a very good experience with Mr.Hoover and paralegal Miss Blackwell, very accurate and timely communications from the very beginning all the way until the end of the general sessions hearing via phone email and regular mail.

Very pleased with Mr.Hoover as he was able to reduce my DUI first offence in Williamson County TN to Reckless Endangerment.

I am not a resident of the state of TN but a resident in the State of FL so this was a very satisfactory outcome for me.

Mr.Hoover was also successfully able to reschedule my initial hearing twice when I had personal problems traveling to the state of TN on the originally scheduled dates.

I will with full confidence recommend Mr.Hoovers law firm to anyone looking for assistance with legal matters in TN and or Williamson Country. Mr.Hoovers brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the table specially being that he was previously general sessions court judge and the the fact that his practice has been around for many years.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Don, Thank you for the very kind words in your review. I am so very pleased that we were able to get your DUI amended down to a lesser charge. Congratulations on a splendid outcome. It was my pleasure to represent you and I thank you for the opportunity. Best wishes going forward. Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney at Law”

So Thankful!!!

Mr. Hoover went above and beyond for me and my case! I was charged with a DUI, and I unfortunately had an incredibly high BAC. We were facing an uphill battle, and I would have had a much harsher penalty had Mr. Hoover not been on my side. He made sure I understood all of the options we could take, and with his expertise and advice, we received a STUNNING victory with the DA. He was always available to answer my questions, he made me feel like I wasn’t alone, and he offered a payment plan to retain his services. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!! I am so grateful for him and his expert advise! Lisa, his Paralegal, was such a pleasure to work with as well! She knows her stuff inside and out, and she was even there for me when I called her crying. They are such an incredible duo!!

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you so much for the very kind words. You honor me with your review. I am so very pleased that we were able to work out your case to your satisfaction. Also, i want to thank you for recognizing my excellent Paralegal, Lisa. She is remarkable. If you need anything going forward, please let me know. Best wishes, Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney at Law”

Excellent Representation I Felt Confident In

Lonnie helped me with a first offense DUI case that was incredibly challenging for me and my family. He explained things carefully and took the time to answer every question we had, as we had them. I didn’t feel alone or uncertain in a process that I had previously little to no experience in, which meant I could prepare affectively and proactively for my court hearing. His previous experience as a judge lent a deeper understanding to the way we should proceed with my case, and he was ultimately able to achieve our best case scenario in court, which I and my family will forever be grateful for. I highly recommend Lonnie Hoover as a criminal defense attorney.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Congratulations on an excellent result in Court. I am so pleased that we were able to get your felony charge DISMISSED. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you. If you need anything going forward, please let me know. Lonnie R. Hoover Attorney at Law”

Best Lawyer in Town

I have been charged with DUI First Offense, Move Over Law and Failure of Financial Responsibility. In the process of hiring an attorney I first contacted Lonnie Ray Hoover and had a brief conversation for an hour. Based on that conversation I decided to hire him and never consulted another attorney trying to decide between attorneys. The key reasons for me to make that decision are he is crystal clear on explaining the next steps and also he is on vacation but took his time on the call and never in rush to explain or complete the call. Once he is back , I visited him in person at his office he once again reviewed and explained everything that will happen from that point forward. Over all the time in the conversations we had, he never gave me false hope and at the same time never denied the positive outcome. He kept me to the reality of the situation. I cannot just put it in one word of few sentences of what he is capable of, On the court day his experience spoke volumes. I was so relieved with the positive outcome. It’s like a huge burden taken off me. Reduced to Reckless driving and all other charges dismissed. I took a right decision hiring Lonnie Ray Hoover and never looked back.

Thank You!

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you for the very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you. I was delighted with the result of getting your DUI amended down to reckless driving. Congratulations on a well deserved victory. Best wishes going forward, Lonnie R. Hoover Attorney at Law”

Domestic assault

Mr. Hoover was outstanding in representing my son. Kind, compassionate, non-judge mental, and clearly an astute expert in law. He was very thorough in explaining to us our options and potential outcomes and gathering all of the documentation to help win our case. The charges against my son were completely dismissed and expunged. Thank you Mr. Hoover!

Lonnie Hoover is a miracle-worker!

When our family faced turmoil after a relapse earlier this year, we were all feeling cautious and afraid, but knew that it had to be possible to have some of the charges reduced and/or dismissed. Looking at four Class: A Misdemeanors, one Class: C Misdemeanor and a Class: B Felony, as a range 2 offender, is terrifying! We knew we had to find the right attorney and find him (or her) quickly. Having grown up in Williamson County, I was familiar with a few of the names of local attorneys I found online, and began calling to inquire about Consultations. Mr. Hoover’s office was the easiest to get on the phone and had the first availability for a Consult that week. After meeting with Mr. Hoover and discussing our situation, honestly, I felt even more confused and anxious on how best to proceed in hiring an attorney. Mr. Hoover knew that I was in a rough place and needed some direction. He made many suggestions on how to most likely receive the best results in court, including rehabilitation options prior to that court date, considering the drug court program, and/or even working for the police, among other things. At first, this was startling to me and I did not think that Mr. Hoover understood me or my situation. However, i continued to talk to friends and family and Mr. Hoover became very highly recommended, with his local history as a judge for many years prior to his current practice.
It was still with hesitation when we decided to hire and retain Mr. Hoover to represent my case but we knew he was the best choice if we wanted any chance of forgiveness and leniency- and he sure was, the very best choice! At our court date, my anxiety was through the roof. Just thinking about my daughters and family having to be without me because I messed up and had a temporary lapse of judgement was eating me up inside. When he spotted me in the court room, he began to make his way over to us. As he got closer, his smile continued to grow, until he was beaming in front of us. We held our breaths, knowing the news from his talk with the DA’s office had to be either really good or really bad.. Mr. Hoover delivered even better news than we had imagined! Due to his insight and knowledge on Williamson County laws and court system, he had provided the best recommendations, which not only allowed me to receive the help and treatment I desperately needed, but also helped keep our family together, strong and supportive. We are truly amazed and blessed by the work of Mr. Hoover and his ability to have my charges changed, to plead guilty to only two Class: A Misdemeanors. My family and I cannot be more proud of what Mr. Hoover was able to accomplish, and we definitely highly recommend him for anyone needing the best Criminal Defense Attorney in our area!

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Of the thousands of criminal cases I have handled over the past 35 years, I have never been more pleased to deliver the great news to you and your wife that your very serious felony charge was being dismissed. Congratulations, you have worked hard and truly deserved a break. Please keep up the good work and if you need anything in the future, please let me know. Lonnie Hoover, Attorney at Law”

B.L.

Mr. Hoover was extremely through in reviewing my case. I was facing significant charges and his guidance and suggestions for activities prior to my court date proved invaluable in minimizing the consequences. He gave me a very realistic appraisal of the likely outcomes and negotiated the best sentence reduction i could expect.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you so much for the kind words and for giving me the opportunity to represent you. You and I are both delighted with the outcome. Best wishes going forward. If I can be of service to you int he future, please let me know. Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney at Law”

Immense Understanding of the Legal System

As a former judge, Lonnie Hoover’s knowledge of the practical workings of the legal system are unparalleled. He certainly also understands all of the out-of-the-courtroom steps that are required to get a case into the position to settle (which benefits everyone). He explains things clearly and he is a pleasure to work with.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Greg, thank you for the very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you and I must say, you really deserved a break. Congratulations on a splendid result and thanks again for giving me the opportunity to represent you. If you need anything in the future, please let me know. Lonnie R. Hoover Attorney at Law”

Experienced Professional

Mr. Hoover is experienced, measured, and professional. His credentials alone speak for him. I had a complex case with a vast amount of data to unpack. Analyzing the data relied heavily on dissecting extremely nuanced, detailed information in each report document being used to build a case against me. Although time consuming, dissecting the varying report data yielded a more accurate case analysis. This proved to be key in my defense. Without going into further details of the case, I will say that being innocent and fighting against a false narrative, is a lonely, scary place to be. In order to establish the best approach towards a favorable resolution, Mr. Hoover invested a great deal of time in understanding and explaining every aspect of my case to me. At its conclusion, all of the result objectives I initially set forth in his office were accomplished.

I was in a situation that strategically backed me into a corner. It was becoming difficult for me to tell who the “good guys” and “bad guys” really were. They seemed to all act the same. The overwhelming amount of fear and depression it left me with really began to take its toll. That is until my first meeting Mr. Hoover. From the start, there was a sense of calm and well being about him. After listening to what I had to say, the confidence he expressed in his ability to help me, immediately began to alleviate the worries I had in getting my case under control. Throughout the entire legal process he fought for me, listened to me, and was patient during the numerous times I struggled with doubt and cynicism. I have so much gratitude for Mr. Hoover and how he helped me out of the very troubling place I was in.

The amazing legal staff in the Hoover law office also needs to be noted. Their consistent effort to go above and beyond for me did not go unnoticed. It truly was a major contributing factor towards the positive experience I had. Any additional questions or concerns I had were always welcomed, and promptly addressed. On multiple occasions, time was scheduled out for last minute one-on-one meetings without any impression that I was a hassle to them. I am beyond appreciative for the willingness they had in being available for me…both during, and after my case resolution.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review. You honor me with your kind words and I am so very appreciative. It was my honor and privilege to represent you and I wish you the very best going forward. I am delighted with the outcome and so pleased that your too. Thank you also for mentioning my excellent staff at the law office. I agree, my assistant is outstanding. Thank you for acknowledging her. Best wishes, Lonnie Hoover Attorney at Law”

Great Attorney service from former judge Mr. Lonnie Hoover!

Mr. Hoover did a fantastic job defending me in my case. I was being referred to Mr. Hoover by a friend. My experience with Mr. Hoover was remarkable, the impossible became possible. Mr. Hoovers profile, being a former judge was well enough to hire him (served as Williamson Sessions Court Judge b/w 1995 – 2006). I was possibly looking at having a DUI charge on my record, causing me a lot of time, money and inconvenience. Thanks to Mr. Hoover, my charge was reduced to reckless driving. If you have been charged with a DUI or any other criminal offence, please do not search for a lawyer by price, instead choose a lawyer by quality and respect. Mr. Hoover did an excellent job in defending me. He did exactly what he told me, he would do in his interactions with me. He explained everything to me, was very clear on what was going on in my case, and what I should expect. If anyone is looking for an attorney, go meet Mr. L. Hoover in Franklin, TN. If I need a lawyer in future, I would definitely return to Mr. Lonnie. Hoover. Thanks a lot sir for all your help and diligence in my case.

Anonymous

If you are a criminal defendant in the Williamson County, Tennessee, Mr. Hoover is your best bet. I am an innocent man who was accused of a heinous crime. There were potentially false witnesses lined up against me, as well as social workers who were determined to find something wrong with me in their psychological assessment. The accuser had an ulterior motive, and was present at the court on my court date, vehemently asking the prosecutor to prosecute me and expecting to testify. After considering all the evidence, including Mr. Hoover’s presentation of my story and interview with the accuser, the prosecutor decided to drop all charges outright (not even retirement, or pre-trial diversion), which is exceedingly rare. Why was I so worried if I were in fact innocent? Because, until that moment, Mr. Hoover was the only person in the world who believed me. And the truth sometimes fails to prevail.

To me, Mr. Hoover is the ideal of an American lawyer—your champion against the hostile world. When the whole world seems to have ganged up against you, and all prospects look doomed and gloomy, he will fight to uncover the truth, against all odds.

My experience, of course, should not be read as a guarantee that your cases will be dismissed too. You might not be necessarily innocent (or partially at fault, with mitigating circumstances), and even if you are innocent, your circumstances might be worse than what I have faced. But Mr. Hoover will fight for you, knows the system in and out in the Williamson County, is highly respected there (he was a judge there), and he will maximize your chance of getting the best result and/or uncovering the truth (if doing so best serves you, as was in my case). Now, Mr. Hoover will never promise you anything; he would rather not lie. Trust me—you do not want a lawyer who does not worry or who is too optimistic; those guys over-promise and cannot deliver. Thank you, Mr. Hoover, for saving my honor.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you so much for the very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you and I am delighted that we were able to get your charge DISMISSED. You were truly an innocent man. Thank you again for giving me the opportunity to represent you. Best wishes going forward. Lonnie Hoover, Attorney at Law”

Lonnie Hoover did a fantastic job representing me!

I was charged with a domestic violence charge and was recommended by Grumpy’s Bail Bonds to Lonnie Hoover’s office. I was able to meet with Lonnie the same day I called and new immediately that Lonnie was the right lawyer to represent me. Lonnie made great recommendations for me to do in order to prepare for my court date. He was also able to get a court date within 30 days of my charge. Going to court is hard enough but with Lonnie guidance the morning went very smooth. Lonnie was able to quickly reach a agreement with the DA and the agreement was very favorable for me. I was out of court within 1 1/2 hours with no issues. I would definitely recommend Lonnie to anyone looking for legal assistance. Thanks Lonnie.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Matthew, thank you for the very kind words and review. It was my pleasure to represent you and we are both delighted with the outcome. After a year, your case will be dismissed and your record expunged. Congratulations! Please let me know if you need anything further. Lonnie Hoover Attorney at Law”

Criminal Defense

I was charged with a class E felony with intent to resell, along with paraphernalia and driving on a revoked license with no insurance. From the first conversation we had, during the consultation, I felt Lonnie was a great choice for my defense, especially knowing who I would be facing in court. Mr. Hoover is a very straightforward, stern, yet understanding attorney, which is perfect for a judge that many would be nervous to speak in front of.
Mr. Hoover kept me updated every step of the way, and helped me gather all of the ammunition needed to fight this case. I am now a licensed, insured, legal motorist, returning to school in the spring to obtain my bachelors in Audio Production. I have my life back, along with a promotion to manager in my workplace. With the help and support of Lonnie Hoover, this detrimental, terrifying event has turned my life around. Not only did he tackle the DA, leaving me with the minimum fines and jail time, but he shined in the court room as a lawyer. I am one of the 10% cases that will ever be settled in Fairview general sessions, considering a charge as substantial as mine. I am quite sure the other defenders knew I had the best attorney, and so did the judge.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: Thank you Robert for the very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you and I am very gratified that we got your case handled to your satisfaction. You have a bright future. Best wishes going forward and if I can be of service in the future, please give me a call. Thanks again, Lonnie Hoover”

My Defense Lawyer For Life

I highly recommend Mr. Lonnie Hoover to anyone needing, in my opinion, one of the top criminal defense lawyers in the country, certainly the Southeast.

Having been both a judge and an attorney for three decades, Mr. Hoover knows the legal system inside and out, and the how to effectively prepare defense strategies. He handled my case carefully, thoughtfully and professionally, preparing my defense thoroughly, as he and his assistant made efforts way “above and beyond” for me, interviewing numerous witnesses, advising me every step of the way, explaining the law, various defense strategies, and all possible outcomes. He then constructed a vigorous defense for me with detailed documented evidence I worked hard to provide him. Facing fierce opposition, he used this evidence to negotiate the best possible outcome, as the opposing side weakened point-by-point in the face of his arguments. The result was two dismissals, settled out-of-court, with prejudice, of all charges, with expungement of the record. My case will never be heard again.

In my two cases, Mr. Hoover was able to quickly see weaknesses in the opposing arguments and articulate arguments that established my innocence beyond a preponderance of the evidence, and also beyond a reasonable doubt.

I am absolutely stunned by the stellar results that Mr. Hoover was able to achieve when he was provided with overwhelming evidence that supported our compelling arguments.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Dru, Thank you so much for that splendid review. You really honor me with your kind words. It was my pleasure representing you on both charges. You were unjustly charged and you are truly an innocent man. the two dismissals were highly justified. The system worked well for you and I am so happy with the result. Congratulations! Lonnie Hoover, Attorney”

Highly recommended

Mr. Hoover promptly returned my initial call to his office despite being on vacation and clearly and concisely identified the primary issues in my case. During the formal consultation a week later, Mr. Hoover clearly communicated the pertinent facts and circumstances and helped to determine my key objectives and discussed the best way to achieve them. Prior to my court date, Mr. Hoover fully prepared me for the likely scenarios which provided a framework that made it much easier to understand the situation and make a decision when the time came based on his negotiations with the district attorney’s office. Ultimately, the outcome was as favorable as one could have hoped for and the case was retired. Mr. Hoover laid out a clear path to this outcome and all I had to do was execute on the items within my control and for which he gave clear instruction. Overall, this was an excellent experience within an unwelcome situation.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you for the very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you and I am delighted with the retirement we were able to achieve. In a few months the case will be dismissed and we will get it expunged from your record. Best wishes going forward and thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent you. Lonnie Hoover”

I Trust Lonnie Hoover

Mr. Hoover represented me almost four years ago now and I am finally getting around to writing a review. I was a 19 year old boy who made a mistake that could have cost me or someone else a life. Lonnie was able to give me a second and chance and I could not have been more blessed to have him as my lawyer. Mr. Hoover made me feel comfortable, heard, and valued. On the day of my trial you could tell Mr. Hoover had everything under control and the outcome was miracle. Thank you Lonnie for all that you did for me those years ago, my life would have been completely different had you not helped me in my time of need.

BEST lawyer in Williamson County!!

I retained Hon. Hoover for two separate court filings; in both cases Mr. Hoover and his office went above and beyond to provide me with not only the best advice on how to move forward, but won me with the best possible outcomes. I was an absolute wreck upon meeting Mr. Hoover; but he professionally and compassionately guided me through the entire process, answering ALL my questions. The past year has been the most difficult time in my entire life and Mr. Hoover took the time to look out for my absolute best interests and refer me to the several helpful resources that have turned my life around and help me towards a much brighter future. Trustworthy, honest and considerate, Mr. Hoover is the absolute best lawyer I could ever ask for…I could not be more appreciative for his services. I recommend Mr. Hoover with the utmost confidence.

He only showed me respect and was incredibly professional during the whole process. He made the process swift and immediately started working on my case after I called him.

From the beginning, Lonnie knew exactly what to do and how to best defend our case. This case was ultimately dismissed, and Lonnie was key to getting this done.

Above and Beyond

Judge Lonnie Hoover went above and beyond for me in my DUI case. I was in a rough spot in life and did a stupid thing. He took his time with my case and maximized every minute to help me with my DUI. He did his job and changed my life with the outcome of my case. I am blessed for the work he put in and the outcome he got for me. If I ever need the assistance for a lawyer again (lets hope not) I will look no further than Judge Lonnie Hoover. Thank you again Judge Hoover

Lonnie was extremely knowledgeable about the entire court process, and was very reassuring. My wife and I were dealing with a situation that we had never been in and were both nervous and apprehensive. Lonnie did an amazing job of asking the right questions and giving us answers in a way that made it easy to understand. He was very thorough in his collecting of information as well as his follow up. During our court date, he took charge of our situation and worked hard on our behalf to obtain the best outcome. Our cased ended up being both dismissed and expunged. We could not be happier with the representation we received from Lonnie Hoover.

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Brock, you honor me with your very kind words. It was my pleasure to represent you and your wife in this ordeal. I am thrilled with the outcome. The charge was DISMISSED with no cost, fine, jail or probation, and your record will be expunged. A big CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve it. Best wishes going forward. If I can be of service to you or your family in the future, please let me know. Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney at Law”

The Best!

We hired Mr. Hoover to handle our daughter’s DUI/vehicular assault case. With a high BAC and extremely angry victim pushing for the maximum punishment, the outlook appeared grim. Mr. Hoover made the most of the factors that were in our favor and was amazing in the
preliminary hearing. He showed the DA we would not just lay down. That, and his persistence in pursuing a plea agreement led to our daughter getting the best possible outcome for her situation, a suspended sentence and minimal jail time. We are so glad we hired Mr. Hoover to represent our daughter and would not hesitate to recommend him. He is worth every penny!

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Thank you for the very kind comments. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and to assist your daughter with this very serious matter. I am likewise very pleased with the outcome. It was a hard fought battle, but worth the effort. Please feel free to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance to you or your family. Best wishes. Lonnie R. Hoover, Attorney”

Highly recommend!

Lonnie Hoover counseled me to do what was best for me personally before my court date. Through following his advice not only have I gained confidence in myself, I’ve learned what I was doing wrong in my personal life and what to do to not put myself in that position again. Then he worked his magic in the court room! I am now free and clear from my troubles and able to go on with my life without a record! I highly recommend!

Lonnie Ray Hoover’s response: “Jacqueline, Thank you so much for choosing me to represent you. It was my pleasure meeting you and helping achieve a great result in your case. Congratulations on a well deserved victory. I am delighted with the result in your case and I am so pleased that you are happy. If I can of service to you in the future, please let me know. Best wishes going forward. Lonnie Hoover, Attorney”

You can trust Attorney Hoover

Not knowing an attorney when you need one can be a difficult decision. I hired Mr. Hoover in a business related situation. He exudes confidence in his clients, and is extremely intelligent in many aspects of law. He also returns your phone calls and keeps you up to date on your case.
Would highly recommend Lonnie Hoover.

Judge by the people, now for the people

Folks, I’ve been through something that no one should have to go through. In light of the recent events I found a savior of sorts in Mr. Lonnie Hoover aka “The Judge”. Yes Mr. Hoover had a prior career in serving on the bench and with his past comes a lot of wisdom. He’s seen it all basically. I cherish his knowledge and would add that he’s a good honest person as well. In light of my events Mr. Hoover was a great grounding tool for me and spoke from the heart. If you choose him to work with you won’t be disappointed. He controls the courtroom like a movie star and certainly can play the part. I venture to guess that there’s not a lot of contenders out there that would want to take him on. He will represent you and give you both sides of tables views. It’s important to note that his team is versed in every aspect of domestic, civil, and criminal defense. Pick him or at least meet him if you want the best. I will attest that I came out on top, if not higher in the end! Thanks again Judge. My family thanks you as well! God Bless you and yours!

BEST LAWYER….HANDS DOWN!

Unfortunately, the time came when I needed the assistance of an attorney. I had checked with others and upon the referral of a friend, contacted Mr. Hoover. He was quick to respond to my phone call and scheduled me in the next day. Upon meeting, he let me know he was very familiar with my type of case, discussed certain scenarios that could happen, some not good, but at least the man was honest and up front. This definitely helped me make the correct decision on how to move forward. After hiring Mr. Hoover he was great about keeping in contact, keeping me posted on how things were progressing and overall keeping me at ease.

If you find yourself looking for someone to handle your case with professionalism, and knowledge of the legal system, than I can think of none other but Mr. Hoover.
