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.

Why We Love San Diego
As California’s second largest city, San Diego enjoys a thriving economy, an ethnically diverse population, a talented workforce, magnificent beaches and parks and mild climate year-round. According to Forbes Magazine, San Diego is also quite “business friendly” - a great locality to launch a startup due to its highly educated workforce and a mix of high-tech industries. Additional industries include electronics, oceanography, aerospace and missiles, medical and scientific research, and agriculture. San Diego's natural harbor is also a hustling commercial port. Due to the city’s close proximity to Mexico, tourism contributes greatly to the city's economy. It is no surprise that San Diego is referred to as “America’s Finest City.”
San Diego enjoys a comfortable climate, with the average temperature in the 70s. Our yearly average for mostly sunny days is 267.
San Diego’s attractions include the San Diego Zoo, Legoland, Sea World, the USS Midway Museum, extensive beaches, art galleries, and more.
With an estimated 1.4 million residents, San Diego is one of the most ethnically/culturally diverse cities in the country.
