Attorney Profile

The founder of The Hoffman Law Firm, LLC, Laura Hoffman focuses her practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters. From the firm’s offices in Clifton Park, New York, she represents clients throughout Saratoga County and other parts of the greater Albany metropolitan area. Admitted to practice before all New York state courts since 2006, Ms. Hoffman is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.

A significant portion of Ms. Hoffman’s client base consists of area residents who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to deal with such divorce-related issues as child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of complex assets such as retirement accounts and business ownership interests. An experienced negotiator, she works hard to help her clients come to an accord on some or all these matters without having to resort to litigation, but she is a forceful courtroom advocate when a trial proves to be necessary.

Ms. Hoffman has also helped people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting court orders. Her other family law experience has included the preparation and review of existing support and parenting court orders, and she has represented domestic violence victims in their quest to obtain protective orders. Ms. Hoffman's successful track record has earned her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo, and she has also been named as one of the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys Under Age 40 by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys.
