I had experience the worst when it comes to the law. I was looking at a 2nd DUI with Injury (Felony) and was by far the scariest moment in my life. I was calling around different attorney offices and not a single one had the decency to take the time to speak with me. I called a good friend of mine and he mention to give Ron Hoffman a call.
When I called his office and spoke to Joanie who made me feel VERY comfortable over the phone by the way. Not even 10 minutes goes by and I already was getting a call from Ron Hoffman and I spent over an hour with him over the phone. My heart was beating so fast but after talking with Ron, my nerves began to calm down. He was very professional not only regarding the law but in life. He guided me through the whole entire process and we had both worked together on this case.
It took the DA 3 months to file the charges and originally the charges should of been a Felony but Ron got them to drop it to a Misdemeanor right off the bat which was huge deal. That right there (My Friend) is impressive because if it was not easy by any means for Mr.Hoffman, I literally would of been screwed over by simply going with a public defender.
The next step was getting me into DUI court and Mr. Hoffman negotiated to the DA since he thought it would be a good fit for me. Not only did we go and find out that they would not accept me in DUI court because of my charge (23153) DUI with Injury and both Harbor and Westminster courts in (Orange County). So far it has been 12 months dealing with this case.
Here it is the last and final attempt to try and work out a deal. Mr.Hoffman does the Unthinkable and got the DA to drop my charges from a (23153) DUI with Injury to a (23152) Regular DUI. That is really amazing because it is not an easy task to pull off a move like that. I was orginally looking at doing 240 days in jail to him dropping it down all the way to 75 days in jail. Yes I know this is not idea but it is better than the other alternatives the DA was wanting.
Thank you Joanie and Mr.Hoffman for all of your support through this whole entire nightmare of a process. Hands down the best attorney I have ever had.
I didn't hire a lawyer for my first DUI...
What a mistake!
Ronald goes above and beyond with his art and knowledge of custom strategy according to your case.
Lawyer of the year (every year).
To Whom It May Concern:
I got into a car accident and got scared and left because the guy I hit was yelling at me and threatened to call the police. That was the biggest mistake of my life. Shortly after that I got a letter from the police wanting me to come in and give a statement. I panicked and didn't know what to do.
I didn't feel I could afford an attorney, but my wife said I probably couldn't afford not having one. I contacted several law firms but felt most comfortable with Attorney Ron Hoffman of Hoffman and Associates. Mr. Hoffman was also highly recommended by my best friend who used him when he had a Dui a few years ago.
We met at his office and he explained the law and all my legal options of how to respond the police letter. After hiring him to help me I felt much better. He took care of contacting the police immediately on my behalf. He helped me get my car out of impound and helped me with a statement for my insurance compqny. He even helped resolve matters with the guy I hit.
I can't thank him enough for the excellent results he got me and comforted me the whole time. Always answering my questions promptly, working on solutions to help this case from becoming a bigger ordeal. His staff was kind and treated me with the highest respect. They made this nightmare go away. I would recommend Hoffman and Associates to anyone in legal trouble.
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. Ron Gave Great guidance and walked us through the process to a conclusion that my daughter an I was completely happy with. No Jail equals happy parent! That was not the end of my daughter's dealings with the legal system. She got another DUI before the first one went to trial that was not filed until Attorney Ron Hoffman got the first DUI Resolved. In addition Ron had to deal with another serious legal issue that was running almost concurrent with the DUI which looked really bad and was bad. I again knew how bad this could be. Jail was almost guaranteed. But again My Attorney Ron Hoffman with his experience and tremendous relationships that he has developed with the District Attorneys and Judges in Southern California along with his Legal Knowledge through all the years in practice. Attorney Ron Hoffman Came Through again. NO JAIL TIME......I am forever Grateful to Ron and his staff. My daughter learned a lot and is a better person thanks to the relationship we have with Attorney Ron. Joanie who works with Ron is also GREAT.... Thanks Team for all that you have done. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RON.
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. The results of my case was that the court date was dismissed and I was able to get my license back. I am grateful for their services. Happy customer satisfaction!!!
Best money we ever spent was the day we hired Attorney Hoffman. My husband was facing a lot of jail time because of his prior DUI cases. Mr. Hoffman encouraged him to get the help he needed in a treatment program which has changed his life and ours. He convinced the Prosecutor and Judge to allow him to do electronic monitoring (house arrest) instead of jail. We can't thank you enough for your hard work in negotiating such a great solution to this awful legal problem.
Sincerely, J. P.
I was so stressed and scared when I got arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of calling Attorney Hoffman's office, I started feeling calmer. Mr. Hoffman and his staff treated me with respect and I felt reassured that everything would be o.k. Their knowledge, confidence and friendliness helped me fix my case with even better results than I ever imagined. Thank you!
When I got my first DUI I didn't realize how serious or complicated it was. Not only did I have a problem with the Court, but also I faced losing my job because it required me to have a license. Mr. Hoffman listened to my concerns and explained to me his techniques for dealing with these problems. He was able to find a loophole in the breath machine records and consequently got my case dismissed and saved my license from being suspended.
I was charged with a second DUI and to make matters worse, I foolishly refused to take a breath test. Attorney Hoffman proved to the prosecutor that the police had failed to warn me of the consequences. The refusal was dropped which kept me from going to Jail. This flaw that Mr. Hoffman discovered helped me greatly with the DMV. Thank you again, you're the best ! Jose S.
I was charged with a Felony DUI with Injury. The first offer from the District Attorney was for 3 years in Prison. After months of Mr. Hoffman fighting and negotiating with the District Attorney and Judge, I received straight probation, no jail time, and a treatment program for my drinking problem. I would without reservation recommend Mr. Hoffman to anyone seeking hard working, caring legal help.
When I got my recent DUI, I thought my career in the Marines was over. You strongly recommended a treatment program, which you helped coordinate with my Superiors to help minimize the Military penalties and used this information to keep the Judge from sending me to jail. Thank you Mr. Hoffman.
