Ever since beginning his practice in 1985, Mr. Hoffman has been fortunate to represent a wide variety of clients, including product manufacturers, commercial general contractors, and corporations both large and small. He primarily handles the defense of higher profile personal injury matters. 

Mr. Hoffman has tried numerous cases to verdict, and is especially proud of having become a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates in 2004. The exercise of civility among lawyers, under even the most competitive of circumstances, is an ABOTA tenet which he strives to perpetuate.
