    • I recommend Kevin Hoffkins.
    • I hired Kevin 1-6 months ago.
    • Kevin handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I found Kevin to be a good lawyer who kept me well informed about my case. He communicated with me well and handled himself professionally and I felt like he always acted with my best interest in mind. Kevin treated me more like an individual rather than just another case.I would highly recommend him.

    • I do not recommend Kevin Hoffkins.
    • I hired Kevin < 1 month ago.
    • Kevin handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Kevin was really nice during his "free" consultation. However, the day he got us to sign a retainer he changed colors. I had heard bad reps about lawyers, but Kevin takes it to another level. We decided to drop him and suddenly he threatened us about the outcome of the case being unfavorable and how we were making a huge mistake.

    We are currently trying to recoup some of the retainer fees, but as expected he is not answering any of our attempts. We are planning to go to the Connecticut BAR association with an official complaint.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This claim that I changed colors once they signed came as a total surprise to me. I represented this person appropriately in all court matters. When this person decided to represent herself, she only told me that she didn't want to pay more money for an attorney. I discussed with her the possible negative outcomes of representing herself, as is appropriate for a lawyer to do. I certainly never made a threat. She had a balance on her retainer which has been returned to her.

    • I recommend Kevin Hoffkins.
    • I hired Kevin 1-3 years ago.
    • Kevin handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Kevin Hoffkins did a great job for me. I had an auto accident in which I got a broken thumb that required surgery and a stress fracture of my hip. He got me a six figure settlement that I was very happy about. He fought hard to force the insurance company to raise their original offer substantially. He kept me informed throughout the process.

    • I recommend Kevin Hoffkins.
    • I hired Kevin more than 3 years ago.
    • Kevin handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    For me the most important aspect when you hire a lawyer is COMMUNICATION. Attorney Hoffkins controlled every single detail of my case since the beginning. He prepared my case meticulously. He communicated every single aspect of my case via email or phone call immediately. He trained me on possible questions and answers during the naturalization interview and he prepared the paperwork of my case beautifully. We were prepared for the worst case interview, because we wanted to win the case. We made it. !!! I am a US citizen now!

    • I do not recommend Kevin Hoffkins.
    • I hired Kevin 1-3 years ago.
    • Kevin handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    You need to realize he is a one man law firm that in the long run will cost you more than someone with paralegals. He did not provide me with any documents from court and has left it to me to find them myself. There are a lot of very good lawyers out there, why risk it on this one?

      Lawyer Comment:

      This is just not true. My fees are less because I have a small office-not more. Firms with paralegals will charge more for the attorney' time so it ends up being more. My office is fully automated, so clients are not billed for menial tasks. All clients clients are provided with a complete file once the engagement has terminated.
