Domestic violence offenses usually involve spouses, partners or people who are dating or living together. Prosecutors will continue to pursue the case even in situations where the alleged victim wishes to drop all charges. Therefore, it is essential to have an experienced advocate on your side. Our experienced defense lawyers have over 30 years of daily courtroom experience and is skilled at defending against all domestic violence related charges, such as:

  • Spousal abuse
  • Domestic abuse
  • Assault and battery

Although the criminal justice system strongly asserts that you are innocent until proven guilty, people who are facing such serious charges recognize how easily your freedom can be taken away. You may be removed from your home, fired from your job, restricted from seeing your children, ordered to pay temporary spousal support or child support or scorned by family and friends - even before you have had the opportunity to prove your innocence. We counteract this injustice by moving promptly to prepare your defense and obtain your freedom.

We challenge every piece of evidence being used against you. We review any false accusations to challenge the credibility of the alleged victim. Our goal is to eliminate or reduce all domestic violence charges. We work hard to avoid the potentially damaging effect these charges can have on our clients' records and the harsh penalties that can result from a conviction.

We work hard to find a creative solution to the penalties you face if convicted. Our attorneys always fight for alternatives to jail, including counseling programs, anger management classes, rehabilitation and community service.

★★★★★
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time...
★★★★★
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
★★★★★
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown

I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him... Manuel Gomez
★★★★★
Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call... Teri A.

Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.

I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
