Testimonials from Clients
Exceptional service. I would emphatically recommend Laura—I found all of my communications with Laura to be honest, direct, professional and timely. She came highly recommended to me, from another attorney, as ‘Someone who stayed on top of the courts and the opposing attorney to ensure the divorce cases were processed through the legal system as quickly as the law permits’. I found this to be absolutely true of Laura, as she was on top of every step of my divorce case, and managed to get the case processed in under a year. I did not need to manage or follow up with Laura at any step. She was on top of everything and only contacted me when necessary, therefore keeping my fees reduced. If I had questions, her answers were concise and helpful. If I had a question about something that wasn’t happening for months she would tell me, “I know why you are asking me that, but don’t worry about it now because it won’t happen for months, and you don’t need to pay me twice to answer that question.” I quickly appreciated her approach which assisted me in remaining calm in a very emotional time. I loved that I only worked with her. She did not have an assistant contact me. All of my communications were directly with her therefore alleviating confusion, additional calls, and obviously less fees. Laura’s memory is exceptional. She is laser focused on your discussions with her. I rarely had to remind her of a specific detail of a previous conversation. A simple word or two and she knew what I was speaking of. Laura’s writing of legal documents to the other attorney and the judge were simply exceptional. Specific, direct, masterful and strong when needed, I told her more than once that her legal writing was to me, a form of art. My particular divorce case was not your average case and the 50/50 NYS no fault rule did not apply. Laura did a lot of extensive research of case study to determine what would be fair distribution under an extreme set of circumstances. I am proud to say we made legal history in our judicial district. I honestly felt, and continue to feel, she was heaven sent to me. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is kind and compassionate to your individual needs, but when she gets in that courtroom…she is a powerful force and she will fight for you. Laura has a lot of integrity. If she tells you your expectations are unrealistic, it is because they are. She will not make a false promise of an outcome that she can’t make happen. She will also not lead you in a direction that might not benefit you. Call for a consultation. Everything that I heard of her work ethic, drive, communication and professionalism was 100 percent accurate.
It is hard having to deal with family court issues on many levels, but having Laura Hoffman in my corner definitely put me at ease and really helped deliver the best result possible. I not only highly recommend that anyone in need of representation for a family court case seek to retain Laura as your attorney, but also plan to request her services in the future should a need arise again. You will be very pleased with her, that is a guarantee!
