Hoyer Law Group, PLLC, was founded by experienced civil litigators specializing in whistleblower and employment law with a passion for righting wrongs and helping their clients succeed. Our team’s ingenuity and know-how have helped employees find justice, small businesses operate efficiently, and whistleblowers recover millions on behalf of the government.

Founding Partner Jesse Hoyer was raised by federal and state prosecutors Chris and Judy Hoyer in Tampa, Florida. Jesse’s parents, along with Bill James, ran Tampa’s State Attorney’s Office for almost a decade before entering private practice in 1992. Jesse began her practice at her parents’ law firm, where she learned from their dedication to fighting fraud and advocating for whistleblowers. After a decade of practice, Jesse started Hoyer Law Group with her fellow founding partners Sean Estes, an experienced civil litigator, and David Scher, who has vast expertise in all areas of employment law.

Together, Jesse, Sean, and David have assembled a team of highly-skilled, highly-motivated practitioners to prosecute your employment case, advise your small business, or help you recover taxpayer dollars on behalf of the government as a whistleblower.

Rather than engaging in the type of “scorched earth” litigation for which some law firms have become notorious, the attorneys at Hoyer Law Group pride themselves at being effective, efficient advocates. Whenever possible, we work collaboratively with the other side to achieve our clients’ goals while respecting our clients’ as well as the government’s resources.

At Hoyer Law Group, the focus is always on our clients and the facts. Client communication is key to a great attorney-client relationship, and we do our best to make sure that you always have access to your attorneys when you need them.

Communicating your facts is equally essential to success. Our firm leverages in-house technology and its investigative prowess to assemble, refine, and present your facts in the most persuasive manner possible, whether the audience is your employer, employees, or the government.

Our IT personnel and investigative team have the expertise to handle the most significant discovery projects, having assisted the government in sorting through millions of documents in past cases. With Hoyer Law Group, you will get the tech-savvy of a large firm that takes on the most document-intensive matters, while enjoying the access of a small firm that makes its attorneys available to its clients.

With more than a century of combined litigation experience, Hoyer Law Group attorneys have the knowledge to deal with the unexpected and counsel you through rough times.
