    Attorney Profile

    Dividing her practice between family law matters and criminal defense, Paisley Sylvia Hoffman is an attorney at Nicholson, Gansner & Otis, S.C. Working out of the firm’s office in Madison, Wisconsin, she provides advice and counsel to people throughout the greater metropolitan area and other parts of the state. Ms. Hoffman has been admitted to practice before all Wisconsin state courts since 2018.

    Ms. Hoffman majored in legal studies and social welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2012. Remaining on campus, she attended the school’s Sandra Rosenbaum School of Social Work and obtained her Master of Social Work in mental health in 2014. Ms. Hoffman then pursued her legal studies at the University of Wisconsin Law School, and in 2017 she was awarded her Juris Doctor.

    Ms. Hoffman’s family law practice primarily consists of her helping divorcing clients deal with such issues as child custody and visitation, spousal and child support and the division of community property. She works with them on reaching an accord through negotiations, but she also represents them in court if litigation proves to be necessary. Ms. Hoffman has also assisted people whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking to have existing support or parenting orders divorced or modified. In her criminal defense practice, she represents people, including juveniles, who have been accused by the state of having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses. Prior to becoming an attorney, her experience in this regard included working with the Wisconsin Innocence Project and interning with the Briarpatch Youth Project, a nonprofit organization that offers services to at-risk young people, including runaways and those who are homeless.
