Law Office of Stephen L. Hoffman LLC
About this pro
After interviewing several attorneys, Mr. Hoffman stood out from the rest. I came across him in reviews such as those on Avvo, Yelp, and Thumbtack. I didn't think I had a good case, but he assured me I had a very good case and he exceeded my expectations. Mr. Hoffman was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. He kept communication simple and understanding. Mr. Hoffman also did an excellent job in getting the maximum amount of money from the insurance company as well as paying for all hospital bills. He answered every call and replied to my emails in a timely manner. He kept me informed every step of the way. Mr. Hoffman became more of a friend than my attorney. I would definitely recommend Mr. Hoffman to all family and friends.Oct 17, 2014
My Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Lawyer Mr Stephen L. Hoffman is an excellent lawyer, a great helper, and very kind person. I am so glad that he is my lawyer, God bless him. I recommend him to everyone who needs a good lawyer. He is the best.Mar 10, 2011
I was involved in an automobile collision that was not my fault. It was complicated by the fact that I was traveling between places of work for my employer so I was not even sure whether this was going to be a negligence automobile collision personal injury case or a workers' compensation case or both or neither. I was hurt and confused. When I contacted Stephen Hoffman, he immediately explained all the possibilities, the pros and cons, the procedures, and was genuinely concerned for my well being as well. While this process could have been stressful and confusing, Stephen really made it a pleasure, staying in touch with me regularly and getting the case settled much quicker than I ever expected. He is a thorough, personable lawyer who takes the time to get to know his clients, listens to their questions and concerns, and keeps them informed. I was amazed at how well he knew my case and how frequently I heard from him via email or phone with updates, explanations, and news. While I hope to never need a personal injury lawyer or workers' compensation lawyer again, I would absolutely recommend Stephen L. Hoffman and Law Office of Stephen L. Hoffman LLC to anyone who needs an injury attorney. He is wonderful to deal with, professional, a great advocate, and someone who gets results for his clients. I was thrilled with how my case turned out and he documented everything he did; he is completely transparent, ethical and trustworthy. I cannot recommend Stephen enough!Oct 5, 2012

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are contingent on all cases. That means you pay nothing unless I win or settle your case. One-third for PI and 20% for workers' comp.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes. In Illinois, lawyers are required to do so. In addition, I am the co-Chair of the Chicago Bar Association Solo and Small Practitioner Committee, five years running. I am in charge of obtaining speakers, deciding on topics of continuing education, and organizing an annual seminar. I look at it as my way to give back to my profession.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I like people and I wear my liberal bias on my sleeve, along with my heart. I fight for the person, the individual, against the large corporation, the insurance behemoth, the system.
