Let our experiences work for you
Tara Hovey grew up in modest circumstances. Both of her parents worked to provide for their five children. Tara’s dad, an Army Airborne veteran, worked as an iron worker, a welder and a truck driver. Her mom was a LPN. Tara, her brothers and sister, grew up outside of Rosebush. Tara’s grandparents lived just down the road and helped provide the loving support of an extended family. Though Tara worked through high school, her early years and the support of teachers instilled the importance of education and goals.
From high school, Tara went onto Central Michigan University, graduating in 1992, then on to law school at Ohio Northern University. In 1995, with a fresh law degree and the world before her, Tara remained true to her mid-Michigan values and returned to central Michigan to begin practicing law. Tara and her husband Kevin, married in 1997, began a family and set deep roots in our community. They, along with their three children, live in Clare.

Tara remains committed to providing the best in legal services and to achieve that goal regularly attends continued legal education courses to stay a top of the recent changes in the law.
