Patrick Hoover is an Associate Attorney at Ammarell Deasy LLP. Patrick’s practice focuses mainly on issues arising in family and domestic relations law, including divorce, legal separation, child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance. Patrick has been with the firm since 2015.
Patrick began his legal career at Chicago-Kent College of Law but quickly learned winters in Chicago were too long and too cold. A native of Tennessee, Patrick decided to head west after law school when he moved to Colorado and began working as a judicial intern in the 18th Judicial District in Castle Rock, Colorado. In his work with Ammarell Deasy, Patrick has gained experience in all aspects of domestic litigation.
“My main goal diving into family law was to help families going through one of the most difficult transitions in their lives. Divorce is hard. No only are our clients going through the process, but kids, friends and family members feel the impact. I want to help people manage those difficult times and come out the other side.” Patrick has been involved with multiple re-location cases and finds the challenges there to be particularly fascinating and rewarding. “Everyone knows that when it comes to a parent asking to move out of state with children, all of the lives involved are going to significantly change. I really love helping our clients deal with such emotionally challenging circumstances. Those cases are not easy, but we know how to settle and litigate them.”
Before law school, Patrick attended college in Memphis, Tennessee at Rhodes College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in creative writing. It was while working as a teacher in Memphis that Patrick was introduced to the legal system and began volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate. Patrick also worked with Illinois Legal Aid while in law school, helping to facilitate and run their uncontested divorce seminars.
When not working hard for our clients, Patrick is an avid outdoorsman. If you find yourself looking for him on the weekend, chances are he is hiking on some beautiful and challenging Rocky Mountain trail.
