Brian L. Hoffman, Esq

Brian HoffmanI’ve been a partner at Hoffman & Hoffman since 2000, and our practice focuses on family law, bankruptcy and debt issues and estate planning and settlement.  Many divorce cases involve complex financial issues, such as the unwinding of joint debt and financial and estate planning and I am very experienced in handling those types of matters.  Although the firm is well known for its litigation practice, I’ve always approached family law cases differently than commercial and business disputes.  How the parties divorce can greatly impact on the final outcome and the effects on the family can be felt for many years.  Divorce through the collaborative law process allows for the parties to maintain control over their lives while still protecting their interests and the interests of their children.
