David Hoffman and his colleagues at the Boston Law Collaborative in conjunction with the ABA Section of Family Law conducted a 40 hour Family Mediation Training November 9 -13, 2009 at their offices in Boston, MA. The program provided an overview of the mediation process, including the various types of mediation and mediators, as well as strategies and skills. We learned how mediation is used to address a variety of family law issues, including divorce, post-divorce modification, asset division, and custody and parenting arrangements. David was a tremendous lead trainer, motivator, and host. For attorneys and other professionals looking for mediation training, David and his staff are excellent instructors. The materials provided are clear, concise, and user friendly. I definitely recommend David as a mediation trainer.

I met David at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School lecturing on Mediation. He provided me a summer internship. I assisted him in several mediations and arbitrations. David blends superb lawyering skills with deep compassion and an ability to help people find meaningful solutions. He is also very respectful of the lawyer-client relationship. David blends his impartiality with a commitment to the parties with a humility that instills far more than confidence--he instills trust. I hope my endorsement helps both sophisticated and unsophisticated consumers to appreciate that in choosing David as a Mediator or Arbitrator or Collaborative Lawyer or as Counsel, what they get is a thoughtful, compassionate lawyer who demonstrates an extraordinary gift of wisdom. In my 30 years of practice as a tax consultant, before I retired, I found that the few gifted lawyers like David, are capable of expanding possibilities and achieving enduring solutions.

Relationship: Worked together on matter

David is an excellent attorney and mediator. I worked with him when a divorce involving substantial assets was close to settling, but my client could not reach an agreement with the spouse. The parties did not want to go to court. David's input in the case was very valuable and helped bring the case to a conclusion.
