Robert W. Hoke
Attorney at Law

Robert Hoke Smiling

My name is Robert Hoke. I was born and raised in Orange, TX, a city right on the border of Texas and Louisiana. I originally came to Baton Rouge and LSU on a music scholarship, and though I changed majors, I stayed involved in the School of Music by being a member of LSU’s nationally recognized A Capella Choir. It was during my time at LSU that I fell in love with Baton Rouge and Louisiana. Though I had been exposed to the culture growing up on the Texas side of the Sabine River, I fully immersed myself in all things Louisiana. From LSU sports and Mardi Gras parades to Hunting and Fishing in the backwoods of Evangeline Parish and all things in between. After undergrad, I moved to Houston and managed a restaurant for three and a half years.

Eventually, I returned to Baton Rouge and attended LSU Law. During my time at LSU Law, I excelled in trial and appellate advocacy while also expanding my educational experience by interning at the East Baton Rouge Parish Public Defender’s office and the Department of Environmental Quality. Eventually after graduation, and after my judicial clerkship ended, I began working in the field of bankruptcy. I found that I truly enjoyed the work, and the people I was helping. They were almost without exception people who had fallen on hard times and more than anything just needed a helping hand. I am passionate about my clients and the work that I do.

I currently reside in Baton Rouge with my wife and two kids, aged 5 and 7. I am a fan and supporter of LSU Athletics and try to get on campus for as many games as possible. I look forward to having the opportunity to assist you with whatever legal needs you may have.

There's no shame in filing for bankruptcy or seeking debt relief. I'll walk you through your options.
