Attorney Hoffman and his Secretary Annette were both just great. I can remember on two occasions when they went above and beyond the call of service. First, Mr. Hoffman provided me with step by step instructions on how to proceed after I was served papers by the sheriff’s office on behalf of the creditor that was suing us. He had me come to his office and he printed out the answer form that I need to take with me to the court, to Answer the judgment. Secondly, On our way to our Bankruptcy court hearing My husband and I got lost, I called his office, very stressful because we were almost late on getting there, spoke with Annette she gave me directions, stayed on the phone with me until we got there, and when we turned the corner Attorney Hoffman was right at the door looking for us and gestured us in his direction, he said we were up next, a sense of relieve came over me, for we had made it on time. Thanks to Annette for being at the office to assist us on finding the place. I called Annette back to thank her for staying on the phone with me and understanding that I was very stressful at the time, she was very understanding, and as a matter of fact she said that she was texting Mr. Hoffman to let him know that we were lost but we were very close and should arrive very soon. Kudos to that Team!
My husband and I went to seek council for a bankruptcy. From the moment we made the appointment the service was a joke. We were lied to by one member of the staff, then for lack of any better explanation verbally assaulted and talked down to by his paralegal who then openly flirted with my husband in front of me and then told me how to raise my special needs child...keep in mind all of this after they couldn't even manage to get our names correct. The final nail in the coffin was when I was able to get Mr. Hoffman on the phone. I relayed to him the events of our meeting and expressed my concerns, not only for myself but for anyone else unlucky enough to come into his office when he is away, and his EXACT words to me were, "Well she will be the one handling your file so if you can't work with her find another lawyer." Having worked in the legal system all I can say is I am shocked. If you value yor time and money and have any sense of self worth I strongly urge you to seek council elsewhere.
Pete is very professional. He takes a personal interest in his cases, maintains an honorable and timely approach to the practice of law. I highly recommend Pete Hoffman.
I Used Mr. Hoffman for a traffic/ criminal matter about a year ago. and he was able to get the charges dismissed with one year probation. a few months ago i need his advise on a family law matter, he and his staff were extremely helpful. i would not only use his services again but i would recommend him to everyone.
This lawyer has done nothing but give us the run around from day one! He and his staff are extremely unprofessional. They set appointment times and when you arrive at the office no one is there, they insure you that your case is on track when come to find out it isnâ€™t they make excuses for why your case has sat for days when they knew how important it was that all was filed signed and publicized on time!!!! I will never use him again!!!
