About Hoover ♦ Krepelka, LLP

Founded in 1960, Hoover ♦ Krepelka, LLP, in San Jose, is a service-oriented family law firm that is dedicated to results. We are the largest law firm in Silicon Valley that practices family law exclusively. Our lawyers bring a combined 130+ years of experience to the table and work collaboratively together to solve your difficult family law problems. Whether you are facing divorce, a post-judgment modification dispute or a child custody issue, or if you need experienced guidance in pursuing a family law appeal, we have the experience and resources to safeguard your interests.

Our attorneys and entire staff share a common vision: We care about people. For that reason, our lawyers work as a team to create meaningful strategies to solve complex family law problems. Our legal team is led by partners James Hoover and Travis Krepelka, both recognized as Certified Family Law Specialists by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. This certification is an honor bestowed upon approximately only 10 percent of family law attorneys. The wealth of knowledge our attorneys have earned allows us to effectively personalize our representation to meet your needs and goals.

We Provide Personal Service and Aggressive Advocacy

Our law firm is founded on integrity, honesty, exceptional legal guidance and unsurpassed personal service. Each of our attorneys and the members of our legal team share the same vision: to serve the family law courts, the community and — most importantly — our clients with professionalism and compassion.

We thoroughly develop the evidence needed to prepare and present a strong case to support your goals. That may include working with professionals who can provide expert testimony such as business valuation professionals, forensic CPAs and child custody evaluators. We are highly proficient in resolving complex, high-conflict disputes efficiently and effectively. Moreover, if your case needs to go to trial, we are fully prepared to litigate to obtain optimal results.

Controlling the financial and emotional costs of disputes is often important in high-conflict cases. Our team is well-aware that personal and family dynamics play an important role in family court. We never lose sight of the individual concerns of our clients and devise creative, personalized strategies to obtain meaningful results. We are more than just family law attorneys: We are a legal team that is devoted to getting you through this difficult time to a brighter tomorrow.
