May has brought exciting achievements, new hires and special events. We continue to strive to make our team and our community flourish, while staying committed to providing our clients excellence in family law legal advocacy.
Our team is growing!
March has been a month filled with new connections and collaborations. In recognition of Women’s History Month, many of our activities and outreach events have been centered on supporting women who are changing the course of history and making a positive difference in their communities.
February has been a month of giving back to the community. Whether serving our clients or helping those in need, we work towards making a difference each day. Here’s the month in review.
We survived “National Divorce Day,” which is typically the first Monday back to work after the holidays. Family law attorneys universally tend to see a spike in inquiries on “Divorce Day” and throughout the month of January, also known as “Divorce Month.” Our team has been working diligently to attend to the increase in new inquiries, as well as to assist our active clients.
We are pleased to be kicking off 2023 with two phenomenal new employees!
2022 has been a momentous year at HK. Thank you to our team, community, referral partners, and clients for making this year a success.
November is National Gratitude Month, where we take a moment to reflect on what we are truly thankful for. In the Thanksgiving spirit, we asked the HK team to share what they are grateful for.
Fall is in the air, and we’ve got pumpkin to talk about.
Thank you for being here, readers! Autumn is officially upon us, and we have plenty of excitement to report.
Did you know that Wednesday, August 31st, is “Love Litigating Lawyers Day?” In October 2015, the American Bar Association Practice Council dedicated August 31st as a day for recognizing litigators for their efforts in protecting the public good and the administration of justice.
Thank you to our diverse team of family law litigators for putting forth their best efforts in court by applying available facts to laws to help resolve disputes for our clients.
July is a special month at Hoover Krepelka, LLP, as we celebrate the birthday of HK’s Founder, Robert L. Hoover. This year Bob is counting 91 candles, and we were delighted to host a special event at our office in honor of this momentous occasion. Thank you to Bob’s legal colleagues, family, friends, trusted advisors, and teammates for making Bob’s Birthday Celebration an extraordinary occasion.
Pride month is in full swing, and we continue to celebrate and embrace the LGBTQ+ community. Thank you to our employees, clients, referral partners and community for showing your pride in June.
Our summer internship program is back on track after a hiatus during the pandemic. Hoover Krepelka, LLP offers summer internships to provide high school, college, and law school students an opportunity to experience working in the family law field. This year, we have the pleasure of mentoring two aspiring new hires…
May has been a month full of exciting announcements. As we appreciate these moments, we try our best to continue to find ways to make a difference in the community.
This month we are excited to continue our longstanding annual HK tradition of celebrating Administrative Professionals Day! Our support team has certainly grown throughout the years and without their efforts, Hoover Krepelka, LLP would not be the firm it is today. We extend a massive round of applause and heartfelt appreciation for this team of rockstars who are integral to our operations. Cheers to the teamwork that makes the dream work!
Mask mandates are not the only thing being lifted this month. Our spirits have also been lifted as we are now resuming in-person meetings with our clients!
February has invited us to reflect upon the past during Black History Month, and to embrace new beginnings in the Year of the Tiger/Lunar New Year. HK continues to strive to amplify all voices year round. This month, we welcome incoming talent, celebrate professional excellence, and offer community outreach to help nurture the diverse rising stars of the future.
January is typically considered “divorce month” when family law attorneys around the globe tend to see surges of new divorce inquiries following the holidays. 2022 has been no exception at HK. Our team has been not only marching forward through the increased call volume and active client cases during this pandemic, but they are also accomplishing some significant achievements. Here’s the month in review.
December is a time to remember all that the year has brought us. We experienced another year of growth as the demand for family law increased throughout the pandemic. All of us have been challenged to step up in inventive and resourceful ways that have ultimately created an expanded and hyper-efficient team.
We have a longstanding tradition at HK on evenings when California state bar results are posted. Our team visits The Hukilau Restaurant in San Jose, we order a big round of mai-tais and we stand ready to cheer (or console) our colleagues who are awaiting their bar exam results. There is no obligation for our employee(s) awaiting a result to join the team in person. However, when they do show up with glowing smiles and arms raised up in victory, the excitement, support and cheerleading they receive when they arrive make it an unforgettable celebration for everyone. Congratulations to HK Law Clerks, Raechele Jang and Diana Han, on successfully passing the bar!
Hoover Krepelka, LLP is taking time to extend our gratitude to our team and to applaud some key, local organizations that serve the community with supplemental assistance for domestic violence related matters.
It’s a great day at HK. This September, we celebrate strong connections with our team, referral partners, and clients. From sponsoring events to competing in tournaments for a cause, it is important to appreciate and support one another.
August brought us many new faces and new opportunities! As we continue to grow, we are excited to find new ways to provide valuable representation to our community. Thank you to our HK team for always finding solutions and lending a hand to potential and current clients.
July brings exciting celebrations and new beginnings as our team of certified family law specialists, associates, and staff continue advocating for our clients and assisting our community. As our team continues to grow and learn from one another, we look back at HK’s unforgettable moments, appreciate the present ones, and look ahead to the future.
We graciously welcome the beginning of summer and the ability for more of us to physically return to the office! We have adopted a post-pandemic hybrid working plan, whereby some employees work remotely, some share a physical space part time, and those willing are situated at our 12,000 square foot headquarters. Our cohesive teamwork truly does make the dream work, and the HK employee culture is back in full effect with free Friday lunches, in person mentoring and talent development, attorney strategy sessions and special celebrations. In addition to continuing to provide legal services via Zoom, we are also now able to meet clients in person, conduct live depositions and conduct private settlement conferences in our conference rooms.
It’s a great day at HK. From celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to advocating Mental Health Awareness, there are various ways to make a change one step at a time.
There is never a mundane moment at Hoover Krepelka, LLP. From incoming projects to welcoming new hires, April has been challenging us to reinvent the everyday into an adventure.
March has brought innovative experiences and opportunities to HK. We celebrated the team’s milestones with a glass of sparkling apple cider and savored sweet ice cream from our friends at Craft Belly Delights in honor of National Employee Appreciation Day. Because of moments like these, we look forward to an optimistic future.
It is a hopeful new year and a time to embrace new leadership and make commitments to make a positive impact in the world we live in.
While most of us are working remotely, our elves have continued with the HK tradition of making our office feel festive for the holidays. We can’t wait until 2021 to gather and celebrate with everyone in person!
As 2020 has introduced unprecedented challenges for all of us, now is the time to be thankful for all the opportunities we do have. We are truly grateful that Hoover Krepelka, LLP, was able to quickly adapt to this year’s sudden remote and social distanced working conditions while at the same time expanding our roster and resources to accommodate the increased demand for divorces during COVID-19. We have been operating under the mantra, “Tough times don’t last, tough teams do.”
