A Great Choice
Mr. Hoffman was recommended to me to process a QDRO for my dissolution. What I experienced was a professional, detailed, and balanced person doing his best work in a very chaotic period of my life. Depending on the circumstance, the calculation and understanding of how a settlement or order that is given can be interpreted in different ways. Each party of course wants what's most beneficial to them. This said, it is of up most importance that the facilitator of this procedure have full understanding of the order and how it is to be calculated. Mr. Hoffman was of great value navigating this for me as well as answering questions outside this realm he really didn't have to. He went above and beyond when the opposing party complicated this and didn't charge me extra when he could have. The fee for this process is about the same anywhere you go, the level of service is where the value is. I would recommend Mr. Hoffman's services to anyone.

Ms.
Eric drafted a QDRO for me after I was divorced. He was helpful, knowledgable, and prompt in his responses to me. He navigated all the legal hurdles I needed to get this done in a timely manner. This were several steps to this process and Eric did all the work necessary to finalize the DRO.

Excellent representation
Eric represented me in a military retirement dispute. He was very professional and was very thorough when getting the facts. His research on the topic was instrumental in reaching a satisfactory decision. Eric, put extra hours into getting all the facts above and beyond what he charged. His prices were very fair and competitive, and he was well versed in his knowledge and if he was unsure about any facts, he researched until he was well versed. His professionalism, dedication and concern for his clients is greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Eric in any matter concerning spousal or divorce issues.

Child Support Case
Eric, has been a tremendous part of my child support process. He has helped with great guidance, and very detailed as opposed to what I needed to present myself with my case. Eric is an excellent Lawyer, and I would recommend him to anyone in the same situation that I am in or whatever else he can assist aside of child support cases. If there was a 10 Star I would give him a 10 Star. Eric also makes time at his busy schedule to assist me. I appreciate his hard work, and dedication on helping me and my son.

Excellent!!!!!
Firstly, I want to take a moment to praise Robert Eric Hoffman for his incredible legal services! Words are not fully adequate to express my happiness with Eric's handling of my case. In my recent child support case I got in over my head and needed help. Eric transparently walked me through every step of the process, told me what was doable and not doable, and gave me his undivided attention. He was patient and answered all of my questions. The directions and information was easy to follow. It was a pleasure working with him and I can't thank him enough.

I Highly Recommend Robert Eric Hoffman!
I want to take a moment to praise Robert Eric Hoffman for his incredible legal services! I had a complex Family Law/Real Estate matter. I was very anxious and confused. Robert, was patient and he really listened to every aspect of my situation, which I found calming and refreshing. He was not only interested but more importantly knowledgable and thorough with his detail to every nuance of the case. When he spoke, it was honest and clear. I am so grateful he has successfully been able to lead me through a very difficult situation. I Highly Recommend Robert Eric Hoffman!

Ethical Expertise Above and Beyond
Words are not fully adequate to express my happiness with Eric's handling of my case. I had never hired an attorney before, though I had other opportunities to do so. But in my recent divorce / long distance coparenting / child support case I got in over my head and needed help. Eric transparently walked me through every step of the process, told me what was doable and not doable, and gave me his undivided attention. I know he had other cases going too, but I never felt pushed aside or in the dark. He was able to get the best possible outcome in a situation that was definitely stacked against me. I would hire him again immediately, and am planning to do so on an unrelated matter. If you're hesitant to spend the money on an attorney, don't be. Eric is worth every penny.

QDRO Perfection!
Eric helped me draw up a QDRO AFTER my divorce was finalized and I was in a different state. He was patient and answered all of my questions. The directions and information was easy to follow. My QDRO was started in July and finished/paid out the end of November. I am actually planning on hiring Eric again for estate paperwork. It was a pleasure working with him and I can't thank him enough.

Best Attorney I have hired in 30 years!
I hired Eric Hoffman to help me through my divorce. Eric is unusual in his ability to read his client and spend time only on those things that help further his client's intentions. I found him extremely efficient and cost effective. On a number of occasions Eric actually reduced my bill because of the excessive hours that were required to win a difficult case. What attorney reduces his bill to help you out? In 30 years I have never had an attorney do that, and I have hired many for business cases. Eric was very thorough in his research. He was very aware of his opponents weaknesses and strengths in the courtroom and conducted himself accordingly. I can tell you he takes his job seriously, his client's interests seriously, and He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is straight-forward and above all honest and ethical. I referred him to a friend who is also impressed with the same values I have stated above. I hope you also will have the opportunity to receive the benefits of his services.

Excellent Family Law Help
Eric had been nothing short of excellent in helping me with my very complicated situation with a spouse who filed false claims in court and then it turned into a divorce proceeding. He's also helped me with some business matters and had been excellent there as well. He's been thorough and ethical and clear at every step. You will get more than your money's worth if you need him.

Super results for my divorce case
My divorce case was anything but typical. Substance abuse, betrayal and even a false police report filed in an attempt to have me locked up. Eric's expertise and persistence played a key role in getting the positive outcome I was looking for. Very pleased with my choice of attorneys. I highly recommend working with Eric. You won't be disappointed.

Genuine and ethical
I hired Eric after firing another lawyer. Eric was everything that I wanted. He kept me informed, he was able to get a compromise that I didn't think was possible. I think Eric has a lot of integrity that has been missing in most of my legal experiences Would highly recommend Eric.

An excellent business attorney.
I would like to recommend Eric Hoffman, an attorney with an MBA, to those engaging in business decisions or starting new business. His diverse disciplines brought a new way of thinking about our project and about it’s marketing. He, first of all, saved us from a legal error that would have brought years of adverse litigation. An error so subtle that we missed it. Next he reviewed the project and with pages of suggestions, led us to changes that brought it from merely good to elegant perfection. Finally, with his diverse experiences and brilliant problem solving abilities, he outlined new marketing avenues and ways to research and identify markets. The project is now near completion and ready for market. Brie W. Vancouver, WA
