  • Stephen Hoffman handled a case involving multiple title transactions with my uncooperative ex spouse. He went to work right away and always kept me informed of the progress. He asked questions when needed and worked effectively for me in working towards resolving the issues. Mr. Hoffman went above and beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a personal attorney.

He is sharp, resourceful and especially well positioned for handling both the transaction-side and, if need be, the litigation-side of your case. I recommend him without hesitation.
