This commitment to quality has paid off for his clients. Some of his representative cases include:

Personal Injury Cases

  1. A client who was totally incapacitated after having been the victim of two auto collisions in the same day. This case presented serious legal difficulties in proving which of the other cars caused what amount of her injuries. In the end, Attorney Hoffkins received the full amount of the auto insurance coverage the other two defendants.

  2. A client who suffered a traumatic brain injury after having suffered previous traumatic brain injury over a decade earlier. This case was extremely complicated in two ways. First, traumatic brain injury cases are always difficult to prove, for this injury does not show up on an X-ray or MRI. Second we had to prove how much more brain damage occurred as a result of the second incident, which was difficult since the client's changes in behavior were very subtle. Attorney Hoffkins achieved a substantial settlement for his client.

  3. A client who was hit by a truck that was operated by an international industrial corporation, and received a herniated disc in his lumbar spine. This case was extremely difficult, since the international corporation tried to hide behind a web of several separate corporate entities. Attorney Hoffkins immediately filed an action in court, and went to work using the discovery process to get the corporation to provide the information about the appropriate corporation to use as the defendant. The end result was a settlement in excess of $100,000.

Family Law Cases

  1. A client who's wife had taken the child from the family home and denied him access to the child, and did not tell him of her whereabouts. Attorney Hoffkins went to court and received an order the same day granting the father sole custody of the child pending the outcome of the case.

  2. A client who was the President of a multimillion dollar corporation whose wife ruining him by running up his legal bills with costly discovery and court motions. Attorney Hoffkins took over the case, and brought the discovery to an end and contained the legal fees.
