When I got behind on my mortgage, I contacted my mortgage company because I knew I was in trouble and I naively thought they were going to work with me. They were, however, completely uninterested in helping me. After I made multiple attempts to contact them, they began the foreclosure process against me.
When I started receiving legal notices, I contacted Mr. Hoffman. He very clearly explained my options and what would happen if we proceeded with each option.
After some discussion, I told him what I wanted to happen. He made sure that was exactly what did happen. He kept me informed and advised me each step of the way, always making my options clear.
I only made one court appearance and watched him work. He is incredibly knowledgeable and skillful. I would not want to be on the other side of the courtroom from him!
In the end, I walked away from the house and owed nothing, which is what I wanted to happen. Mr. Hoffman helped me hold the line against the ruthless and marginally legal practices of my mortgage holder.
Do not trust any mortgage company that starts proceedings again you. They are not trying to help you, no matter what they say.
I trusted Martin Hoffman. It is the best choice I could have made!
Thank you, Mr. Hoffman for leading me through this scary process and protecting my interests.

Let me start by saying Mr. Martin Hoffman knows his stuff! Obtaining disability benefits is a long and drawn out process but Mr. Hoffman's approach to paperwork and his reliability makes it so much less painful. He takes the time to guide you step by step through the process and every step of the way, he's always there if you have any questions. He also speaks on your behalf from start to finish, where as other attorneys will leave you to deal with what feels like endless phone calls from Social Security. Not Mr. Hoffman! I barely had to speak to anyone on the phone myself, as he and his staff did all of that for me. Being disabled this was a huge burden off my back. He made the entire process as stress free as possible and I would 100% recommend him to anyone who needs Social Security benefits in a timely manner. He WILL fight for you! My case was finished in 13 months. He's also funny and kind, so meetings at his office are pleasant and not as much of a chore! Thank you for everything Mr. Hoffman!

I was getting very threatening letters from my bank about my mortgage and that they were going to foreclose on my house. I heard Mr Hoffman on the radio and decided to give him a call. When we spoke, he knew before I was done what was going on and told me he could help. Now one year later, I am still in my house, I didn't have to pay the bank the fees they said I would and my mortgage and my payment is lower. I don't know what I would have done without them!

Marty's knowledge and expertise are outstanding. His ability to grasp complex legal concepts are without compare, but importantly he can explain those concepts to a client on his/her level as well as to a judge on the Judge's level. In addition, many litigators, while able to explain issues in person, have difficulty attending hearings by phone. Marty is able to be just as effective by phone as in person. I highly endorse Marty.

I have known Mr. Hoffman for many years. We have been adversaries and have worked together. He is extremely competent across many areas of the law and practices with character and integrity that is commendable. If I had a legal issue requiring me to hire counsel I would not hesitate to hire Martin. He always listens to his client and has their best as his priority.
