HEATHER HOOVER

Senior Associate

Heather Hoover is a Senior Associate Attorney with David J. Crouse & Associates.

Heather was interested in law from a young age even majoring in Pre-Law at Pensacola Christian College and graduating with honors. She graduated from Gonzaga School of Law in 2010 while interning with a local family law practice in Spokane. While she was not originally interested in family law, her initial years of practice kindled a desire to help families in this field. Dissolutions and custody cases are very emotional and difficult for the parties. Parties are often lost without competent representation, and the outcome of a case will affect one’s family for years to come. Ms. Hoover is dedicated to her clients, to their case and to helping them through one of the most difficult times in their lives.

Heather practices in a wide range of family law matters, including but not limited to: dissolution, legal separation, child custody, child support, paternity, relocations, and non-parental custody. Heather was associate counsel for the prevailing party on a recent Court of Appeals case regarding the currently evolving law on non-parental custody actions.

Heather is also currently acting as a Pro Tem Commissioner with the Spokane County Superior Court. As a judicial officer, she hears many matters to include divorce, child custody, and other family law motions. As such, she has the experience from both sides of the bench to help her clients obtain a favorable result.

When she is not practicing law, Heather enjoys spending the majority of her time with her family. She has three amazing young children that are quickly turning her hair gray.
