Nothing average or mediocre about Mr. Hoskins!
My consultation with Mr. Hoskins was thorough and I felt his explanation was clear and very sensible. He had a very pleasant manner and attitude, and I felt he understood my viewpoint very well and listened. I would not hesitate to consult him again should the situation arise.

Definitely an Outstanding Young Lawyer Award Contender
I was thoroughly impressed with my representation from Zachary Hoskins. He requested lots of information in order to effectively represent my case from both the respondant and me. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of the law, preparedness, and cross examination. Zachary has a passion for the law, the judiciary process, and being a professional representative of these. He was very straight forward and had my best interest at the forefront. Zachary is a lawyer I would not want going up against my case.

Knowledgeable, competent, professional. He will work your case to get the best possible outcome! Highly recommended! A+
Mr. Hoskins is like no other attorney I have consulted with. He will hear you out, take great care of you and treat you with respect. Always returned my calls and answered my questions. I felt understood and well represented. He worked hard to ensure I got the best outcome. He always showed up to court on time and filed all necessary paperwork well in advance. He was not afraid to take my case to trial. He's a tough trial attorney! I am very pleased with his representation.

Represeted with expertise beyond his time practicing
With his advice and guidance I have gotten out of two traffic infractions and an HOV violation. Two of the violations are not even on my record at all.

Excellent Representation
Zachary provided excellent legal representation. He attempted negotiation at all stages of the legal process to ensure a positive outcome of my case. I would highly recommend him for his understanding of pertinent laws and of the entire process and his ability to achieve a best outcome.

Competent &Tactful
I highly recommend Mr. Zachary Hoskins! In dealing with my case, Mr. Hoskins had not only demonstrated exceptional professionalism, but also interpersonal tact! The latter of which is necessary for any successful business partnership, especially between solicitor and client- this is notwithstanding that the client's vulnerability and best interest are at stake. Given the time sensitivity and gravity of my case, Mr. Hoskins counseled judiciously and delivered expeditiously. Anyone seeking a considerate, conscientious, and competent lawyer who has his client's best interest at heart? It is without reasonable doubt that Mr. Hoskins is the epitomization! Hiring him would extricably alleviate you from any emotional duress- i.e. having being requited that your case is in the hands of someone who cares!!!

Excellent service! I would definitely recommend to anyone searching for an attorney. A+
Mr. Hoskins has assisted me in multiple contract negotiations, consultations regarding traffic violations (speeding ticket) and most recently he is helping me resolve a civil law matter. Mr. Hoskins is not only very knowledgeable about the law but he is also very dependable, hardworking and easy to work with. He will make your case his priority and will return your phone calls!! Rightfully so, Mr. Hoskins has a very good reputation in the community. I would highly recommend him!

Practical and competent
Zachary Hoskins was my attorney for family law issues. He communicated well and followed through with every task and phone call. It was my first experience with an attorney and he made it pleasant and the case result was realistic. He was very helpful with my questions and phone calls.

Traffic Court
Although Zachary made me feel at ease, and that everything would be handled, he was late to court the morning of my hearing and I almost had to request a continuance. However, things were handled and the traffic ticket was reduced and resolved.
