Most decent lawyer I ever met.
Stacia is honest, and generous with her time and attention. I worked with her on two separate contractual issues I ran into. She helped me design a contract for my business, and counseled me on getting out of a contract which I was in. She was dedicated, responsive, and very knowledgable and I had positive results in both instances. She was extremely thorough along the way and gave great advice. I highly recommend working with her.

Knowledgeable and responsive!
My husband and I own a small business that we took over from my in-laws and needed some help rewriting our contracts. Stacia took the time to get to know our company and help us make sure we had a thorough and updated contract that covered so many things we had failed to think about before. She was great at communicating with us and made sure we understood everything. She was a pleasure to work with and we will be using her in the future for any legal needs! Highly recommend!

"Stacia is an excellent attorney and person. We worked together at a previous firm where I saw first hand her ability to apply common sense to complex problems. Stacia's capacity to customize strategies for her clients sets her apart. I have and will continue to refer clients to Stacia."
Litigation Attorney | Jul 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked with Stacia for a number of years as in-house counsel for a large insurance company. Stacia is a top tier litigator who is impressively detail oriented and has a very talented eye for issue spotting. She has very high ethical standards and is a tenacious litigator. On top of all of that, Stacia is also a wonderfully kind person who gives her clients devoted attention. I would not hesitate to hire Stacia for risk management advice or representation."
Insurance Attorney | Mar 16
Relationship: Co-worker
"Stacia is an exceptional attorney and I highly endorser her. I spent a few years learning from Stacia while she worked at Betts Patterson, and I was always so impressed with how her mind worked. She would think of solutions and ideas that you might expect from someone who had been practicing for 30 years, and yet she was just three years out of law school. Stacia is not only creative with solutions, but she’s an incredibly gifted writer. Her writing is persuasive and to the point. You will not be disappointed if you hire Stacia Hofmann."

I particularly recommend Stacia if you or your business need assistance determining whether you have adequately insured yourselves against potential risks. Well worth the call!"

"Stacia and I worked together at the Seattle law firm of Betts, Patterson and Mines, and I have used Stacia as a sounding board for risk management and litigation strategy. Stacia's years of experience as an insurance defense litigator has made her especially adept at assessing risk and advising businesses on risk management solutions. Stacia approaches her client's business challenges with an eye toward long-term, practical solutions, while still resolving the immediate issue at hand. Her litigation experience has also made her a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients. Stacia is a skillful litigator, adept at managing cases from start to finish. She never backs away from a challenge, and her sense of humor and overall personality make her easy to work with. I wholeheartedly endorse Stacia Hofmann."
