Excellent Attorney
I have been a client of Joseph Hoffman for over 15 years. I have found him to be the utmost professional and a bounty of knowledge. He assisted me with a difficult divorce and again with a situation with CPS when I lived in another state.

Highly Recommend Joe Hoffman
There are very few "bigger deals" in life than Child Custody Matters. After interviewing several attorneys, many high powered, high dollar attorneys, it was Joe Hoffman who I chose to represent me in court. Not only did I have to appear in court as a respondent with risk of losing time with my child, I had to defend untrue accusations that were being made against me. I could not have chosen a better attorney to help navigate this process, especially when so much fear and emotion was involved. Joe cuts right to the chase. There is no fluff and no wasted time. Because I have gone through a lengthy and very costly divorce, I understand how the process can work and situations can drag on and on and attorney fees multiply. Joe was very methodical and strategic. He knows exactly what he is doing to get his clients desired outcome. I am so fortunate and blessed to say that not only did the mediator not grant the additional time away from me, the court granted more custody for me than we had originally anticipated. Joe continues to council me on challenging situations that arise. His suggestions and council have been 100% accurate and I am deeply grateful for his knowledge and experience.
