About Jeff

Learn Jeff’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    Many of our personal injury clients were injured in auto accidents. If the other driver was in the wrong, We can help you get financially compensated by the at-fault driver's insurance, and by your own insurance where applicable.

  2. Slip and fall accident
    People are required to keep their property adequately maintained so that it is safe. This includes landlords and grocery stores, for example. We can help you get financially compensated if you were injured due to an unsafe condition.

  3. Animal and dog bites
    Dog owners' homeowners insurance generally covers dog bites so that you can actually get paid if you have a good case. We can help you get financially compensated for your injuries if you were bitten by a dog.

  4. Bankruptcy and debt
    We help with debt problems by using bankruptcy and negotiating with your creditors.

  5. Brain injury
    Traumatic brain injuries can be very disruptive to your life. We can help you get financially compensated for everything from minor concussions to severe brain injuries.

  6. Defective and dangerous products
    Design and manufacturing defects can cause very serious injuries or death. We can help you get financially compensated if you are injured by one of these defects.

  7. Trucking accident
    Semis and other trucks are much bigger and heavier than cars, and cause a lot more harm when they are involved in accidents. We can help you get financially compensated for these accidents if another driver was at fault.

  8. Personal injury
    We help get you financial compensation for being wrongfully injured. The specific types of personal injury law that I practice are listed on this site.

  9. Wrongful death
    Death of a family member is of course horrific. We can help you get financially compensated for this, even though it won't make up for losing a loved one.

Well informed and helpful!
I consulted Jeff on a matter I was in a fix trying to figure out. He gave me good, workable suggestions and was straightforward and friendly. He gave me confidence that he understands what he’s talking about. I would trust Jeff as my attorney.

A professional, knowledgeable, and responsive attorney
Jeff Hoffman is a professional, knowledgeable, and responsive attorney. He and Linda spent as much time with me as I needed and made sure that all my questions were answered and the I understood every step of the process. He was very generous regarding his fee, as well - the lowest of a half-dozen attorneys I checked with in the area. I'm fortunate and glad that I ultimately retained Jeff's services. I recommend him highly.

Unwavering Support
Jeff was professional, knowledgeable, and extremely responsive from the beginning to the last day of our case. Linda was supportive, and knowledgeable as well. At no time, did we ever feel alone during our Chapter 13 case. Years into our case, he was just as responsive as he was on Day 1. Our discharge was just recently granted. Our relief, and gratitude to Jeff is immeasurable.

Patient and knowledgable. A+
Mr. Hoffman was very helpful and patient on the phone. He got back to me right away (sooner than expected) and came across as a very personable, competent, attorney who knows his stuff. I appreciate the time he took to answer my questions and his honesty about the feasibility and costs of my particular case.

"Cadillac of Dudes."
Jeff Hoffman guided me through Chapter 7 with ease. Filing bankruptcy can be a difficult and challenging time. From the moment that my bankruptcy started, I felt that I entered a very supportive environment. Jeff operates with a stellar team. Their expert guidance kept me informed every step of the way. Jeff provided practical and logical advice. He always gave me the pros and cons and would research any issues or fears that I had. I don't think that I've had a better experience with a lawyer. If you are dealing with bankruptcy issues, I recommend that you give Jeff a shot.
