Issues of family law are often some of the more difficult circumstances our clients encounter. In addition to the legal aspects there are numerous emotional ones to be dealt with as well.

Our attorneys are experienced in such matters and will provide the legal assistance you require. Allow our lawyers to address your legal issues while you focus on taking care of yourself.

Criminal Defense

If you require a defense attorney to represent you in a criminal charge such as an OWI, DWI, DUI, driving while suspended, public intoxication or something as simple as taking care of a speeding ticket contact Alexander Hoover. An aggressive attorney, Mr. Hoover can provide the defense you require to answer misdemeanor or felony charges. As your lawyer, he will mount the most effective defense on your behalf or, if necessary, negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecutor to help keep you out of jail and to preserve your reputation.
