Brian has handled a number of issues for me and I've found him and his team to be highly knowledgable and responsive. Like any typical individual dealing with law related issues, my approach and expectations were heavily biased towards my own perspective. Brian and his team helped me see the broader perspective so that I could take a more conservative, realistic and pragmatic approach. He presents the facts clearly and in terms a layman like myself can understand and take action upon.
I was in a dispute with a nasty landlord and Brian jumped in and helped me out of a jam. He was responsive and aggressive.
I am a mortgage professional and I have consulted with Brian Hoffman from Hoffman & Hoffman on a number of occasions. I feel very comfortable in referring my valuable clients to Brian and his office. I wholeheartedly endorse him should anybody have need of his services.
I hired Brian for a will for my estate planning and it was absolutely shameful of his performance that after spending thousands of dollars I was totally taken by my ex wife's lawyer. I lost everything and in the end he sends me a bill for the remaining amount of money. He is a smooth talker at the start and says all the right things until I signed the paperwork. After that multiple times I was billed for reading the same set of papers with multiple analysis, photocopies, mailings etc. etc... it was a shameful act. I hope if there is karma in this life.
I tried to use Brian's services for personal injury. One of my friends warned to get a better lawyer but I didn't do my research and went with him First meeting was very nice and he said all the good things I wanted to hear. Once I signed the paperwork, I was arguing with my lawyer more than being focused on the case. It was extremely annoying and I was stuck with him. He wont return my calls, talk to me and try to prove that I was at fault rather than being on my side.
The staff was nice.
I should have fired him but was scared of all the paperwork I had signed with the firm and its people like us, who are new to this, get stiffed.
There are a lot of good lawyers in this business esp in New Jersey and please don't make the same mistake as I did. Please reach out to me if you want more details. One small mistake and I am still in pain with a very minor settlement.
I think the other reviews are misleading.
I have used Mr. Hoffman and his law firm in Keyport, NJ numerous times over the past 5 years for both business and personal matters. His knowledge and response to my various needs have been nothing short of excellent. His staff is very pleasant. His fees have always been very reasonable, in fact his advice last year alone saved me more than I actually paid him.
I CAN'T THANK HIM ENOUGH.
First he handled a DUI for me and he did a great job. I got a reduced sentence and he worked hard to get me great results. Afterward that I have returned to have my parents wills and estates set up. He was very thorough and helped us understand the whole process.
