I personally worked with Mr. Hoffman who provided me with prompt, detailed and sound legal advice. I was in a situation where the seller of my home cut corners and he helped me get out of paying an arm and a leg by using his expertise to demonstrate why the seller was responsible. Don't look any further for your legal needs.
Sky and Dan are great to deal with on matters of real estate and business. Cogent, concise, and pragmatic legal advice. I feel very well represented and have been treated fairly when it comes to their fee schedule. I am very selective when it comes to giving referrals and Hoffman & Forde have never dropped the ball when I have sent them one.
Schuyler and his whole team of associates are the best! They have provided valuable and reliable information in helping me from my business entity. They are very trustworthy, and helped save me a lot of time and money.
