After graduation, he spent five years working in the advertising industry before pursuing his legal degree. Payton received his J.D. in 2003 from Campbell University. While at Campbell he was inducted into the Pi Alpha Delta Fraternity and the Order of Old Kivett for excellence in trial advocacy. He also worked as an intern with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Harnett County District Attorney’s Office and North Carolina Court of Appeals Judge Wanda Bryant.

Payton spent the early years of his legal career gaining valuable trial experience as a criminal defense attorney in Eastern North Carolina. Since then, he has devoted his practice to civil litigation, representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants in a wide array of legal matters. Mr. Hoover represented insurance companies for over half a decade; but now his practice is solely concentrated on helping injured people negotiate fairly with insurance carriers. Mr. Hoover has tried cases at all levels of state court in North and South Carolina. He has also argued cases at the State and Federal appellate levels, including the United States Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals.
