We hired Jo Ann for our personal injury case however it was quite clear from the beginning that she was trying to get her share of the money for the least amount of work. She treated the whole case with a business as usual attitude where it was very hard for us to make an informed decision how to best resolve our case.
We had the biggest issue with her when it came down to paying out the proceeds from the insurance settlement. She claimed that she could not pay out the full amount because of a hospital lien that was unsatisfied (never mind that no lien had been filed with the county and she was not able to produce any bills from the hospital either). We did some research on our own and found out that private hospitals in Palm Beach County can not file hospital liens. After going back and forth on this multiple times she finally realized that she was wrong and paid out the remaining money without offering an apology.
For someone who has been licensed in the state of Florida for 34 years and whose business address is located in West Palm Beach to make such a rookie mistake is quite remarkable.
I hired Jo Ann Hoffman for my attorney from reading alm her success online. Boy I was lucky. She handeled my case as if I was family and worked her best to get me the right settlement for me. I would recommend her to anyone that is confused or scared about getting a lawyer. Jo Ann makes it easy.
They were fair and the best attorney i could of found for my car. I highly recommend them to anyone who need an attorney...
she was very knowledgeable and helpful - the best source of kindness and so helpful to me in this tough time. She and her staff worked countless hours to get me the best settlement possible.
I highly recommend her to anyone who needs the best representation in the legal field
One of the Best Lawyers - she honest - she always call me back when I call - always kept me informed and got me all the money available on my case- FAST !! - all she cares about is doing the best for people and I recommend her highly... All she cares about is getting the best medical care and settlement - both of which she did for me..
Hired them for a Personal Injury case and we signed a contract for 25% fees with costs capped at $150. They never informed me of offers until a month after they were made, never consulting with me about anything. At mediation, which a settlement was reached, both Vance Moore and Joann Hoffman said my fees increased to 40% since they prepared for litigation. I questioned them several times saying it did not make sense since we were in mediation but they insisted and hand wrote a new contract with higher fees. They refused to accept my letter of rescission and refused to write out a true and accurate closing statement. They held my money hostage. I ended up filing a complaint with the Florida Bar. In an attempt to strong arm me, they filed a lawsuit against me and I needed to hire an attorney for my attorney. THE ONLY RECOMMENDATION I HAVE IS TO STAY FAR AWAY FROM THEM.
I hired Jo Ann for an injury case. I have been very happy with the way that Jo Ann and her staff handled everything. I had a very positive result. I am confident that I made the right choice by hiring this firm.
Our son was severely injured in an accident. Jo Ann Hoffman and her team of professionals were instrumental in securing a settlement for our son. They kept us informed and involved in the process. They were extremely compassionate and trustworthy. We would highly recommend them to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Jo Ann was great. She always took my calls and answered all my questions in a way that I could understand them (hey, I didn't go to law school). Jo Ann got me an awesome settlement and her whole team was friendly and knowledgeable in what they were doing.
When I was hurt in a car accident, Jo Ann helped me by doing everything for me (talking to the insurance companies, working on my settlement, etc.) Jo Ann and her team are efficent, responsible, responds back to me quickly, and honest. I recommend her to anyone looking for a car accident attorney.
