Expert Lawyer
Jonathan was exactly what I needed through my divorce. I was scared to do anything and he would calm me down and take care of everything. He was not only lawyer but a therapist for me! He was able to get the best outcome I could get in a quick time frame. He always got back to me immediately and never made me feel like my concerns were silly or a bother. I recommend him highly.

Jonathan Exceeded Expectations and then some.....
As a man I was very apprehensive about where I was going to wind up in the future. I was concerned about my children first and foremost. I didn't know what my visitation would be, what rights I would have and I was quite frankly scared and lost. I figured my financial life was going to be in ruins but I already accepted that. I knew nothing about divorce or how the legal system worked. I assumed that for the most part it was stacked against men. I was wrong on all counts. From the very first discussion with Jonathan I was told that I was going to have 50/50 custody of my children. I didn't believe him. I was also told how would equitable distribution worked. I also didn't believe him that I had rights to the things in the marital residence. Over the next 19 months everything that Jonathan told me came true. In several instances the results were more than either one of us had expected. My divorce process took quite a long time as far as I was concerned. This was the fault of my ex-wife dragging her feet. Looking back on the whole experience I have to admit that there were times that Jonathan protected Me From Myself. He told me to be patient, which in my case is not always the easiest thing to do. I'm glad I listened. It's very difficult to visualize an outcome when it's the first time that you're going through something that stressful. For the entire process Jonathan never compromised his integrity and never allowed me to compromise mine. He was an excellent source of strength and kept me going when I wanted to quit. At the end of it all, I can say beyond the shadow of a doubt that Jonathan was the perfect attorney for me and my particular situation. He understood the emotional and financial impact that the entire process was having on myself and my children. My children's well being was a great source of anxiety during this experience. He never lost sight of my desire to be an effective parent.

Nothing but the best!
I met with Jonathan in January of 2016. I was going through a tumultuous divorce and a custody battle over my 5 year old daughter. I can’t even begin to explain how hopeless I had felt during this difficult time. My previous attorney lacked all ambition in my case and only requested more payment with no results. Jonathan was more than I’d ever hoped for. He was extremely professional, determined, highly experienced, and attentive to any of my questions/concerns. I finally felt that I had a gifted lawyer and he exceeded all expectations. He treated me with such respect and I would never recommend any other family law attorney except him.

The best you can find*
Jonathan is the best lawyer and one of the best people I've ever encountered. I hired him at a time when tragedy and circumstances had left me with little faith in the system, the people working in it and really, things working out in general. He had such a thorough knowledge of the exact laws we were dealing with (i.e. custody laws in Montgomery County), he quickly made me feel, and my actual position be, much stronger. He is a very intelligent, meticulously prepared, tough lawyer with an incredibly empathetic soul. Throughout my entire ordeal, I had five lawyers but I only had one true advocate. I highly recommend Jonathan Hoffman to anyone who needs a great family law attorney for their divorce or custody battle, because he tells you the truth but still fights as hard as he can for what you feel is the best thing for you and your child. In my case, there weren't many precedents in the county for what to do, but he managed to find quite a lot to counter the opposition. He stopped aggressive verbal attacks on me and he brought the focus back to what was important, my son, who is very happy and healthy today. He did not allow the opposing side to get away with intimidation tactics. He was tough but he was also just so knowledgeable. He is a great person to point to as an example of why you need a lawyer who specializes in family law. He knows it so well. Not many lawyers make you like the entire profession better. This one will.

A Very Impressive Lawyer
Jonathan was professional, efficient, organized and highly proactive in my child custody case. His diligence in monitoring and responding to key elements of the case was commendable and his proactive information gathering techniques were impressive. He helped to shepherd all the salient facts of the case into an organized body of evidence from which he crafted concise arguments. I was also impressed by his desire to arrive at efficient solutions, outlining settlement and litigation options clearly and offering guidance, not coercion. Jonathan was obviously my advocate in the case and though I hired him to be such, he seemed far more concerned about a favorable outcome for my child and me than monetary remuneration. He seemed highly active in the case and was always accessible, responding to virtually all communications within 24 hours. Jonathan took the time to sift through enormous amounts of data and seemed to have an unusually strong grasp of the details of my case as well. Lastly, I was impressed by Jonathan's knowledge of judicial processes in both Chester and Montgomery counties and his strong network of professionals including psychologists, lawyers and parent coordinators. He recommended the use several other professionals and helped me to orchestrate their efforts judiciously. I also felt that my case proceeded far more efficiently (and beneficially) because of his ability to navigate inter-county issues and his suggestion to involve a parent coordinator in the event of future custody disputes. Overall, I found Jonathan to be an excellent lawyer and was very pleased with all facets of his performance in my custody case.

Professional & Extremely Knowledgeable Family Law Attorney
Attorney Jonathan T. Hoffman --- Review Mr. Hoffman knows and understands the PA Law Divorce Guidelines concerning divorce complaints, divorce decrees, and/or most family law issues that involve divorce/separation proceedings (legal counsel questions, custody, dividing of assets, support & alimony, etc.) extremely well. He is always professional, productive, efficient, sincere, respectful, kind, and most importantly--- prepared. He truly cares about "family" and the future of "families" and has a unique skill--- that of really "listening" to the client to make sure that they are being heard and their needs are met during this difficult time. Most importantly, he is well respected in the Family Law arena where he gives so much of his free time to causes that also help others. Mr Hoffman is consistent, hard working, and reliable when it comes to the "discovery" part of the divorce proceedings and will continue to ask questions until the problem is solved or both clients can come to some agreement. His fees are obtainable and he is not one to waste your time or money. I highly recommend Jonathan T Hoffman as a family law attorney who not only supports you and your family through one of the most difficult situations of your life while continuing to always "strive for excellence" by adequately protecting you and your best interest by providing you with the most current and up-to-date PA Laws & Guidelines.

This individual, I can not call him lawyer, after charging me for consultation and agreed to take my case did never return my calls, later I find out an other lawyer from his firm was an expert witness for my adversary, he may very well used my information against myself. Shame.
