Great Real Estate Attorney
After meeting and speaking to a few different attorneys regarding my case i found Mr. Hoffman to be well informed and well spoken on what other attorneys described as a difficult case to win because it involves a rear and complicated subject matter. My case lasted over 2 years and Mr. Hoffman was instrumental in providing direction and council that inevitably won my case. If you want someone to provide you with great legal advise and fight for you every step of the way, Steven Hoffman is my recommendation.

A Forever grateful client of Steven D. Hoffman.
From my first meeting with Steven, I just knew he was going to help me with my legal problem, from the beginning until the end of the case. Mr. Hoffman represented me in a litigation matter involving a family dispute over title and ownership of a mobile home. Steven was also kind enough to let me pay affordable monthly payments. The litigation lasted a long time, in the end it all worked out. Steven genuinely cares about his client and the emotions that are involved with a family case. Sara, the office legal assistant was always friendly & very helpful. I highly recommend The Law Offices of Steven D. Hoffman Sincerely, Milla

Mr. Hoffman represented me in a litigation matter involving a lien against my property which I almost lost to foreclosure. Although it took much longer than expected to resolve the matter, Mr. Hoffman was kind enough to substantially reduce his legal fees so that he could put money back in my pocket for damages in addition to clearing the title on my property. I strongly recommend his office. Greg

Business law
My partners and I were starting a small business in a retail location when we ran into financial and other problems. We had signed a long term lease. We came to Mr. Hoffman who advised us to take advantage of weak wording in the lease to rescind the lease which we did. We were sued by the landlord for $355,000 plus attorney fees. Mr. Hoffman prepared an answer and cross-complaint against the landlord. Shortly thereafter, and before the landlord even answered the cross-complaint, we were able to settle the entire case for $22,500. We were very happy with Mr. Hoffman’s representation and his ability to successfully resolve our case swiftly.

Unusual Real Estate Sale Handled With Success by Steven Hoffman
Steven Hoffman's most outstanding quality was his responsiveness to emails, even on holidays and weekends. My case was unusual as it involved a sale of 50% of a house, the other 50% given as a mother-to-daughter gift. It was important that the sale not impact the gift that involved a prop 13 tax advantage. Steve Hoffman helped me with the sale, reviewing documents and explaining the requirements of the title company, and all was concluded smoothly at my end. As most "visits" were concluded through email, the cost was lower than expected and the unused % of the retainer returned immediately at my request after the transaction was concluded. Monthly statements were sent throughout the period.
