Work comp settlement
Jim Hoffmann did an excellent job on my work comp case. Jim was thorough, patient and reassuring. He answered all my ongoing questions during this lengthy and sometimes frustrating process. His associate Jamie Kane was also instrumental in the success of my case as she kept me updated and answered any questions that I had when Jim was unavailable. Thank you Jim., Jamie and the rest of your associates!

St. Louis, Missouri Workers Compensation Lawyer
As seen on - I suffered fractures to both thumbs while at work. Surgery was required to repair the fractures. The insurance company doctor released me to return to work. James Hoffmann and I rejected the insurance company’s offer of $25,000 and proceeded to trial. We documented each and every time the insurance company interfered with employee’s treatment and failed to timely pay employee’s TTD benefits. We received a verdict of $126,000.00 for permanent partial disability.

Saving you a headache
This man is a complete joke.It took them a year and half to finally give me some answer on my case. After I sat around and waited patiently. I had to call them because they stop calling and stop sending mail. He was unprofessional with me on the phone “ using profanity “ like he was talking to a friend instead of client. Please save your time and find someone else to handle your case. He tried to COVID 19 as a excuse when we live in a world with technology. The last I check cell phone and email can not catch a virus so he could have reach out to me. Him and his staff is a complete JOKE. He might as well have a red nose and clown shoes.

He started out great in the beginning seemed like he truly cared promised that seeing his doctors would cost me anything that workers compensation would pay for it all plus he would get me milage and so many others promises and guarantees. Towards the end his only concern was for himself and his doctors to get paid. He even had me use my personal insurance on 2 different visits and said they would be paid. Another lie. He settled for a lump sum which he took his percentage and expense right off of the top than I had to split the remaining amount in half with his doctors and he never paid the hospitals so now they are wanting me to pay

James Hoffmann started out being a great guy, and made me feel very confident going into my case. I assume lots of lawyers are like that. I got offered a settlement which I was not happy with. It said I violated safety violations when I was hurt, and I was not being paid for any of my time off. After looking over this settlement I called James Hoffman's office where the woman on the other end of the phone talked to me like a child. Saying that I did violate safety codes on the job, and since I "didn't break any bones" or "have to have any surgeries" that was all they could do. I would never waste my time with this law firm again, they are not looking to fight for you or what you think is right. They are there to only make a quick settlement and get their 25% cut.

"I gladly endorse this lawyer. Clients like him. Attorneys respect him. He knows the law. He has years and years of solid experience too. And he gets the job done. Personal Injury and Workers Comp Law are his forte. And if you just want to figure something out on your own, you can read through his website and learn a ton of great info on your legal rights. But why mess it up on your own when Hoffman can handle it and get it done right? I highly recommend him to you."
