Really recommend.
Michael is very knowledgeable about family law and even accounting. He goes the extra mile to help you understand what's going on. And most importantly, he has easy options for quick peace. My last lawyer moved so he's my new #1.

I cannot stress how AMAZING he is
I called for a consultation due to child custody nonsense. I didn’t end up needing to retain him, BUT based on my consultation? I will DEFINITELY be hiring him if needed for the future. He’s logical, knows his stuff, and has an extremely personable personality. I’ve talked to MANY lawyers in Eugene. He’s by far my favorite. I went into the consultation stressed, and lost. I walked out of the consultation feeling confident, with a plan of action! I did not get the sense that he’s only in it for money. In fact, he gave me a course of action to SAVE me A LOT of money. He’s truly only interested in helping people, and being a single parent himself, he’s truly only interested in making sure the outcome is in the best interest of your kids. You need an attorney?? HIRE this man. You will not regret it!

Great guy to work with
Michael was attentive, supportive, personable, and takes pride in his work. I couldn’t have hoped for better legal help when it came to contesting a retaliatory FAPA. He’s a rockstar, and there’s nobody else I would have rather had in my corner!

Very Helpful
Michael gave incredible advice and kept me from being my worst enemy. He was able to communicate with my ex and myself and come to a common sense resolution. I appreciated his manner in conflict resolution and getting a speedy resolution to my divorce.

Life changing
I had absolutely no hope before my conversation with this man. I was given the tools to help myself and would recommend him to absolutely anyone. I cannot thank him enough. I feel there is actually something I can do to change my outcome, and that doesn’t come with a price tag.

Compassionate and Caring
When I first saw Michael come from his office and into the lobby area, with the shirt he was wearing and what was on that shirt (he wasn't dressed in a suit), I knew he was the right attorney for my situation. He listened to my spiel and offered up a solution within the first 30 minutes of our session. He asked important questions that were detrimental to my cause. He's a very likable person and MOSTLY and IMPORTANTLY, down-to-earth. I don't normally go out of my way to recommend people for most anything, but if you need an attorney that give's a darn about you and the problem you come into his office with, MICHAEL is your guy. P.S. and he won't break your bank account either.

Gracious, honest and highly effective
In a very dark place in life- Mr Hoffman was able to schedule a consult swiftly and immediately his honesty and helpful spirit took charge. Will definitely be retaining his services.

PETITION TO RENEW RESTRAINING ORDER/FAPA
Promptness, preparedness and knowledge are key when needing to decide who is to represent you in a court case that could potentially change lives. Promptness: Mr. Hoffman contacted me on time as scheduled for consultation about an upcoming court case. Preparedness: Because of his preparation there wasn’t much information he needed from me to get to the end result…which for me is time saving importance when considering retaining counsel. Knowledge: Michael is a licensed attorney in two different states and that in itself is worth a five star rating. To know examples from a case that’s similar to my situation…but to deliver and explain said info where you can only say “I get it”, simply blew my mind! 100% satisfied. With that, you’re reading this review for a reason and should not look any further!

Representation
Michael was very communicative. He responded quickly and explained the details well. He worked with my schedule and put a case together with confidence and ease. I would recommend using him to anyone.

Great person and attorney
I contacted Michael and had a phone consultation with him paid for a half hr. Michael went well beyond that time frame and did not charge me or mention it. He was very honest and straightforward and answered all my questions with pros and cons to my situation I also did not sugar quote anything in my favor I wanted the facts and mike was very knowledgeable. I retained Mike the next day and he sent documents took my calls and text he was not hard to reach and was quick to reply when I had a question or concern. I ended up resolving the issue and my ex and I can to a resolution. I let Mike know and he refunded me the entire retainer even after helping me and spending his time on my issues. I felt like Mike is an honest person who wants to help and really cares about you and less about the money. I would definitely hire Mike again if our agreement falls through so I might be calling him back soon. His fee was very reasonable and worked with my budge being a wood chip truck driver.

Ms.
Michael Hoffman helped me through an extremely difficult time in my life. He was very good at explaining how the laws work. He was supportive and went above and beyond what I expected to make sure that all of my concerns were addressed.

Mr. Hoffman saved me.
I was falsely accused of stalking and spent a month looking for an attorney but no one would take my case. I called Mr. Hoffman just two days before trial and he still took my case. AND HE WON FOR ME! This guy will FIGHT for you 110% He's compassionate and professional and truly cares for his clients and their needs. Could not recommend him enough.

A Genuine People Person Lawyer
Recently, I had some issues regarding business harassment. Out of eight lawyers, Michael was not only the first to fit me into his schedule immediately but provided reassuring legal advice on how to proceed with my case. Admittedly, this had been the first time I had ever had an issue that required a lawyer, so I was quite anxious, to say the least. However, during the whole conversation, he very patiently waited and listened quite diligently to me as I explained the situation. He then proceeded to offer his views and opinions and even made me laugh a couple of times which helped alleviate some of my anxiety. By acting on this conversation dynamic it allowed me to feel that someone cared for my case and that I wasn't alone in all of this. He has given me peace of mind, and I am happy to say that I feel like a massive weight has been lifted off my shoulder. He is a "for the people lawyer" and will definitely help you if he can. I can't stress this enough, but I highly recommended Micheal and will hire him if I have any issues in the future.

Very Excellent Legal Mind
I had a fallacious FAPA Oregon restraining order stuck on me for 3 years. Mr. Hoffman found and cited a new 4 week old appellate decision that helped him make the case at the trial before the judge, and she ruled to dismiss! Highly recommended and an absolute professional.

Polite professional
I was referred to Michael H Hoffman from the Oregon State Bar. He was polite, professional, and helpful in the information he provided. If I plan to hire a lawyer for my settlement or case, he will be my first pick.
