"Joe Hoffmann is an excellent attorney. I got to know Joe when I began practicing in Sussex County 6 years ago. As his office was a block from my own we would see each other often. As a colleague, I have always found him to be knowledgeable in the law, courteous, responsive, professional and forthright. A highly skilled estate and elder law attorney, he prepares thoroughly, and is tenacious, eloquent and persuasive on behalf of his clients. Prospective clients can be confident they will be well-served by him."
