  • Jeffrey M. Goldstein

    I endorse wholeheartedly Ira Hoffman. Ira is one of the few lawyers who's able to take a scholarly attitude towards the law and use it effectively in his day to day representation of clients. He has a very nurturing personality that dovetails nicely with his incredible intellect. Ira is a great choice if you're looking for a seasoned, brilliant lawyer in DC. Best, Jeff
