TESTIMONIALS

“Charlie was very knowledgeable and forthright in his approach to my case. He obviously has a good deal of experience in dealing with the board. He remained practical and steady when my emotions were running high. I like his down-to-earth, non-flamboyant style. My case turned out favorable, and more favorable than we both expected near the end. I would recommend Charlie to anyone facing similar issues with the board.”

Thomas Callahan | LCSW, CEAP, SAP

“Charlie is awesome! I came in part way through on this case and he brought me up to date, kept me apprised of what was going on and settled the case under his final authority, thereby keeping my client very happy. I will gladly use his services again in the future!”

Debbie Gauldin | Claims Examiner | Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc.

“Mr. Hover made a terribly difficult time in my life easier. He was understanding and never made me feel like I didn’t deserve his time. He made me feel like I was talking to someone who cared for me and my case. I have never dealt with a lawyer before and quite frankly, I was more than pleased with this first experience! I felt completely confident I had all the knowledge I needed to make it through this long, tedious, stressful case. I completely trusted Mr. Hover to handle my case. I thank Mr. Hover and his staff for everything you all did for me.”
