John Hoffman and his staff are caring, knowledgeable attorneys and paralegals who understand and empathize with what their clients are experiencing. John knows divorce law backwards and forwards and has a friendly, compassionate demeanor. I'd interviewed a lot of lawyers and did not retain them. However in our first meeting, John established an immediate rapport and connection that made me feel comfortable and trusting. I retained him on the spot. John is careful with your money and wants the best result for you. I am his client but I also feel that he is my friend.

John has been representing me for over 9 years and I have always found him to be hard working, honest, prompt, well versed and very detailed in his preparation and presentation to the court. He has always been available to me and returned my calls when I needed to speak with him. John is a great listener and sensitive to your concerns and will tell you all the options you have and possible outcome of them. John has the experience, knowledge, demeanor, and the respect of his peers and the court. If you are looking for an attorney that will work for you from start to finish you will not regret having John. I have had multiple motions dismissed, been vindicated in all brought before the court, and most recently had a outstanding result in a trial. He is a pleasure to work with along with his entire staff.

John was great to work with, and fought successfully for the custody agreement I wanted. He is thorough, experienced, and tenacious. When I left the courtroom, the staff at the court pulled me aside and told me how lucky I was to have had John as my lawyer. He was recommended to me by another divorce lawyer, who said that John was the best divorce lawyer in Norfolk county. I highly recommend him!

I retained John Hoffman to represent me in my divorce. I believe my case was at the extreme end of the spectrum as far as conflict was concerned. My divorce took two years and went to trial. The opposing side was combative, unresponsive, unreasonable, uncooperative and dishonest. This was a difficult situation for any attorney to navigate.
John Hoffman always set realistic expectations. He was available day, night and weekends when I had questions and time sensitive information to report and would get back to me quickly when I contacted him. John is friendly, personable and tries to make your difficult situation tolerable.
He made you feel comfortable going through this process as he would explain what he is doing, why he is doing it and how it will benefit you. You take comfort in that you know that his many years of experience is on your side as he has been through this process and has seen it all before. He is conservative, careful and takes the high ground.
John prepares you for every phase of the process. He educates you in what you need to know and what is in your best interest. Follow his advice and you will come out of this with a fair and just outcome.
Where you see John at his finest is in the courtroom. He is comfortable and in command in the courtroom. He comes well prepared. He knows what works. And he knows what works for your situation. His instincts and timing can't be beat. He presentation is focused, precise and effective.
To get the best outcome as a client, you must help yourself by helping your attorney with presenting him with as much evidence as you can to help your cause. Also, by taking care to always act appropriately. And by completing the documents and forms in a timely manner and by taking an active role in the process. This combined with a high quality attorney like John Hoffman representing you, you give yourself the best possible outcome. You owe it to yourself and your children to have the best representation and I recommend John Hoffman as your divorce attorney.
When the need arises in the future, I will continue to choose John Hoffman to represent me.

During a difficult, emotional, and stressful time, John Hoffman was able to keep me grounded and provide the advice that I needed to navigate my divorce. From the very beginning, I felt it was very important that I have the right person to represent me - to ensure that we weren’t going to be pushed around by the other side, keep things moving forward, be civil, and complete everything in a satisfactory and timely fashion. Under the circumstances, I couldn’t be happier with the result and I’m glad John was there in my corner. Thanks John!

Attorney John Hoffman is an extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney in every aspect. He always maintained a good balance of utilizing his expertise to manage the case and listening to what was most important for me and my family. Along the way, he truly kept an open mind and did a great job of adapting his approach based on the always-changing landscape of my case.
Even through the most stressful times of my case, it was reassuring knowing that John was on top of everything and he was extremely reliable. When he told me that I'd hear from him on a certain day or at a certain time, I would get a call from him right when I was expecting and hoping that I would.
John's experience both in and out of court was always evident. Part of what makes him an excellent attorney is that he is an honest and caring person who worked very hard to get the best results for me and my family. I would recommend him to anybody that has a need for a family law attorney.

Attorney John Hoffman is the second divorce attorney I have engaged in my divorce proceedings and I've said on numerous occasions that the biggest regret I have from the initial hearing was that I did not have John represent me the first time. Lucky for me, I was able to have John by my side for my modification and the results were night and day compared to the first hearing. John was able to fix most of the mistakes in my orignal agreement and even modified parts that I didn't even realize were oversights.
John is such a knowledgeable and experienced attorney that you can't help but feel so comfortable and secure that your case is being handled to achieve the best results for you and your family. John has such an easy going personality which makes you feel relaxed, but also possesses such tact in handling difficult situations. He is a very detailed individual where you know the little things are not going to be overlooked and is very strategic to achieve the results. I have recommended Attorney Hoffman on numerous occasions and will continue to recommend John to anyone looking for the best divorce attorney in town. You cannot go wrong with John Hoffman as your attorney.

Attorney Hoffman has represented me over the past 14 years. Through some difficult times he soothes and assures you all will be OK. It is apparent from the moment he walks into the courthouse the respect he garners from the bailiffs to the other attorneys. The bottom line is he knows his 'stuff' has has a bedside manner to match. Bright, articulate, and a good guy.
