Wonderful experience in a horrible time
He was fabulous with my case against my now ex. Answered all my questions in a timely manner and was very reassuring and made me feel confident. I hope I never have to use him again but if I did I would go back to him.

Really helped me at the most critical time in my life.
I'm going to keep this short but I was in a hostile divorce situation involving a mutual child and a dishonest spouse with severely unethical representation . During covid the divorce process dragged out to over two years of uncertainty and grief. We worked together in a way that I felt I was part of the team. Ultimately I got results that were better than I had imagined possible. Im now about two months past the finalization and life is looking pretty darn good.

I cannot thank him enough!
When Mr. Hobson took my case, it was a steep, uphill battle. My case was complex, and he doesn't take many complex cases because they are time consuming and he's a small practice. I was very honored and grateful that he took my case. He planned his strategy on the long term goals, thinking out each step and the decision paths to get there, as well as potential outcomes. He prepares for every possible scenario. He's very bright, completely ethical, and a pleasure to work with. Once I started working with Mr. Hobson, it got so I could actually sleep at night. He cared and he did everything he said that he would do. He's worth every penny! To best utilize him, be prepared with your documents and questions. His specialty is divorce law, which is an emotional experience for anyone. However, my advice is keep the emotions out of your case preparation and stick to the details that help him get you the property, financial and custody results you are after. And he will look out for you, to make sure you are treated fairly. It doesn't help your case to talk about painful aspects of divorce as it doesn't help the final results. That may sound cold but it's a fair custody arrangement that is in the best interest of your children and the business of separating property and finances is what he does best. Use him for your legal situation and if you are hurting, your spouse is abusive, has substance abuse issues, cheated on you, or whatever happened that let to divorce, etc., go to a psychologically trained counselor for that kind of help. It helps to get emotional support elsewhere so that you can make decisions that likely affect the rest of your life with a clear mind. Mr. Hobson will have your back, where it counts, in the big picture, financially and with your children. He's absolutely a crackerjack!

Terrible experience
Wish reviews were available before wasting my time. Fired him. He wouldn’t talk with me except when convenient for him- many days without word. Secretary must be used to this as she was versed in how to dismiss my requests. Exceptionally rude. It’s his way or the highway. He owns you and your every move- and acts like it. The arrogance is next-level. Requested directions with my case and he berated me, patronized me, and fully offended me. He refused to give me any documents requested. Do exactly what he says or he’ll treat you very poorly and as if you were an ignorant child. Said I’d have to pay for their time to copy things and 10 cents per copy, by the way. I used a different, fantastic, respectful lawyer and she thought nothing we were wanting was unreasonable and judge ordered everything we requested. Avoid him, there is better out there, in every case.

Rude would not even talk
Called mid Sept for consult. Web ad said free consultation. Emailed copy of ad when secretary said it would be $100. Set appointment for Sept 30th. In their parking lot on time received phone call that I had not sent payment. I said never heard from them and had the $100 cash if they were not going to honor their web ad. Secretary came back on the phone and stated Mr Hobson now doesn’t want to do business with me. She then refused to discuss anything further. I had been referred by a satisfied client. I should have gone by the reviews online which were poor. Waisted two weeks , my time and not even a courtesy to speak to me. Ps my son has a high quality law firm in Bend in another speacilty field of practice

Dishonest and corrupt
I hired Mr. Hobson to handle parenting time issues. He berated people, his staff was unfriendly and rude, he dragged the case out without reason, filed motions that made no sense and even some on behalf of opposing and charged me for it. My current attorney says he won't even take a case with Hobson as the opposing attorney. Don't waste your money.
