Is the lead attorney of Hoover Kacyon, LLC’s Family Law Practice Group and is a Certified Specialist in Family Law. Corinne focuses her practice exclusively on complex family law issues, including high-asset or high-conflict divorce or child custody cases, high-net worth clients, adoptions, appeals, developing new issues of the law including surrogacy and embryo issues and same sex parenting and other cases on the cutting edge issues of the law or cases of first impression in the State of Ohio. Because of this, Corinne has earned her place as a proud member of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the highest-quality organization of professional family lawyers across the United States.

Corinne knew from a very young age that she was destined to be an attorney. The daughter of Judge Kim R. Hoover and the granddaughter of the late Attorney Orval R. Hoover, Corinne grew up in a family that excelled in the legal field and taught her the value of helping others through difficult legal issues. Now, Corinne has carried on that family tradition, along with her brother, Attorney Tad Orval Hoover, practicing in the same building that her father, grandfather and other extended family practiced before her. As a former magistrate, prosecutor, and criminal defense attorney, Corinne follows her family tradition of having represented clients on all sides of the law.

As the mother of four young children, Corinne knows nothing is more important than family. Because of this, Corinne has spent her entire career honing her skills as a trial lawyer so that she is in the best position possible to advocate for families who need her most as they face the most difficult moments of their lives. Now, Corinne uses her credentials as a certified specialist in family relations law to handle the most complex family law cases including high asset or high conflict divorce of custody cases, cases of private business ownership and complex business valuations, cases involving forensic custody and psychological evaluations and competing expert reports, and cases representing professionals such as professional athletes, lawyers, doctors, dentists, politicians, CEOs and business executives and owners (and their spouses against them!). 

Corinne has also had the honor of representing clients on the cutting edge of new laws and legal developments across the state. Corinne frequently argues cases of first impression in the courts of appeal and is sought after by both clients and other lawyers alike to take over complex cases once they reach the appellate court level. Notably, Corinne has even appeared in front of the Ohio Supreme Court and has additionally testified in front of the state legislature's Civil Justice Committee on controversial pending family law legislation. 

Corinne also has developed a particularly niche market of her practice in the arena of complex adoption law. What sets Corinne apart from her colleagues in the family law field is her hybrid of experience in both adoption law and other family law matters. For whatever reason, most lawyers who practice in domestic relations or juvenile court do not practice adoptions, which are heard in probate court. For the same reason, a lot of probate law attorneys say they practice probate law in general but do not do adoption matters. Practically speaking, these areas of law intersect and clients are best served with a lawyer who understands how one area of law affects the other. For example, perhaps a mother is fighting her ex-husband in domestic relations court over visitation and child support and is remarried and wishes for her new husband to adopt the child. A purely domestic relations lawyer may very well be able to assist with matters of visitation and support but not know how their actions in domestic relations court could ultimately affect the success of an adoption case later. It is for this reason that Corinne is regularly consulted as a family law specialist, not just by clients but oftentimes by other lawyers who acknowledge Corinne's unique hybrid approach can be of huge benefit to a case. Corinne is also a regular lecturer and instructor on Continuing Legal Education courses to other lawyers and judges dealing most often with the intersections of family law and adoption cases based on her experience in the fields. It is not uncommon for judges to remark that when they see Corinne on a case it involves an issue they have never seen before or something else particularly complicated. Corinne is willing to take on the messy cases such as this because her passion is protecting families because she knows nothing matters to her clients more. Her most crucial cases involve contested adoptions, adoption appeals, representing clients in situations where fraud or wrongful adoptions have occurred and oftentimes, opposing public children service agencies in their attempts to get involved in the private lives of families who could instead handle their own matters through private adoptions. In representing clients in these matters, Corinne cannot help but be “all in”. What sets Corinne apart from others is that she will fight for her client’s children just like she would fight for her own. 

Aside from complex litigation and messy family law cases, Corinne is also a firm believer in settlement and alternative dispute resolution when it serves her clients. Some clients express that they cannot afford to have a lengthy legal battle. Other clients say that emotionally or mentally they or their children cannot handle a contested case. With prior extensive experience as a Guardian ad Litem (GAL) in both domestic relations and juvenile court, Corinne understands that sometimes the most important role a lawyer can fill is assistance with reaching a fair settlement or compromise without a long drawn out battle. 

In addition to her fulltime family law practice, Corinne also serves as an attorney in governmental relations, representing individuals and political entities in complaints before the Ohio Elections Commission, advising clients on elections law and campaign finance matters and providing consulting services on intersections between legal and political matters. In the past, she has also served as Special Counsel to the Ohio Attorney General. Corinne is also a proud member of the JoAnn Davidson Leadership Institute. 

Corinne is a member of the Ohio State Bar Association Grievance Committee, charged with investigating complaints filed against judges and other lawyers across the state, as well as a Ohio State Bar Foundation Fellow. She is also an active member of the Akron Bar Association and a member of the Family Law Section, an Akron Bar Foundation Fellow and a Member of Board of Directors of the Akron Bar Foundation, the charitable wing of the Akron Bar Association.
