About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I am a shareholder in the Family Law Section at QSLWM and Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  I focus my practice on helping individuals and families cope with the often trying issues associated with divorce, property division and child custody.  I utilize my extensive litigation experience in a manner designed to protect my clients’ interests while focusing on ensuring that the best interest of the children are protected throughout the process.  I know how trying this can be and how emotionally charged all family law settings are.  I try to help my client's deal with the emotions in a productive manner in order to enable them to make the best choices for them and their family.


I have represented numerous clients in various family law matters in the Family Courts of Dallas County and Tarrant County as well as the District Courts of Collin County, Denton County, Ellis County, Kaufman County, Parker County and Rockwall County.  Family law issues I have litigated include Divorce, Complex Property Division, Child Custody, Grandparent Access, Termination of Parental Rights, Adoption, Paternity, Child Support Enforcement, Possession and Access, and Family Violence.


I care about you and your situation and I care to make a difference.

David exceeded my expectations
Choosing David Hoffman as my attorney was truly a life changing decision...for the better! I began my fight for the well being of my daughter with another attorney. While contemplating an attorney change because of a lack of attention to detail, I met David. After 10 minutes of discussing my case with David, I knew I needed to change attorneys. My custody battle was long and extremely difficult but David calmly guided me through the process. His attention to detail, response to phone calls and presence in the court room were the things I was most impressed with, with David. In the court room, it was clear David was greatly respected by the judges. During hearings and trial, it always felt like David had the upper hand when arguing against opposing counsel. When beginning my custody battle, multiple attorneys told me I would receive, at best about half of what I was seeking....I received 100% of what I was seeking, thanks to David!

I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. David Hoffmann!
When life throws unexpected and often overwhelming curve balls it's important to have a MVP on your team. David Hoffmann is the consummate professional. Highly intelligent, his guidance is always clear and concise displaying an expertise in legal knowledge. My case contains a plethora of incredibly sensitive and emotional material. He has always listened intently without judgement displaying remarkable compassion. His confidence, calm strength and a keen ability to communicate effectively give me a calm strength and a confidence of my own. When the stakes are high and your most valuable treasures are at risk, without hesitation I endorse this professional.

Exceptional Attorney - Highly Recommended!
Mr. Hoffman handled my divorce in 2013-14 as well as some business following the completion of divorce. As many divorce cases are, there was no lack of drama, emotion and theatrics in mine (from the opposition of course). David was great at cutting through all that, steering me around it and keeping us on course to finish well. I quickly realized that I could depend on him for wise advice and sound judgement. I also felt that he was sincerely invested in the outcome for my best interest, not just for the financial bottom line. I would highly recommend Mr. Hoffman to anyone who needs a smart, seasoned, and genuinely caring divorce attorney. He was a very important part of navigating me through this extremely difficult passage.

David Hoffmann Legal Services
David provided me with professional objective advice and guidance during my divorce. It was an emotional time dealing with the issue, and David did provide empathetic advice. He was with me or provided a lower cost solution when they needed to represent me. I would recommend David for any advice and guidance as you navigate through the legal waters. I only hope that I have to go through this once in my lifetime but it was reassuring that David did represent me and provided the best advice for me and my family.
