Thank you again for volunteering as a mediator and getting my Jones Trust case SETTLED, all the while juggling a second case that morning.  

You probably didn’t get a chance to see it, but the step-mom came over to my 4 clients afterwards and everyone hugged and cried.  I saw grown men cry – 4 of them all at once!

We all did a good thing that day getting that very nice family settled.  If only ALL of our cases involve such good people! 

Be well and hope to see you around Provisors circles – maybe even the Pasadena Estate & Succession Planning Affinity Group (PESP)

Be well my friend!

 Professional Profile


Nathan Hoffman


Professional Endorsements:

Doron Tisser

Estate Planning and Tax Attorney at Tisser & Standing LLP

In the years I have known Nate, I have found him to be one of the most hard-working and ethical attorneys I know. As a trusts and estate attorney, I often have the need to bring in an attorney that can resolve disputes among beneficiaries and trustees, or possibly even litigate such matters. Nate is my "go to" attorney. He has a unique ability to get matters resolved without having to resort to litigation. Yet, if litigation is necessary, he has the experience to be successful in the litigation. All clients that I have referred to Nate have said positive things about him and were happy Nate was brought in to resolve their matters. If you or your client needs an attorney to resolve trusts and estate matters, you should definitely contact Nate

Spencer Proffer

CEO at Meteor 17

Nate is the smartest, most passionate, focused and highly competent attorney I have ever dealt with in my life on all levels. 10 stars.

Michael Santucci

Attorney, Co-Chairman, Intellectual Property Section of the Broward County Bar Association

I had the pleasure of serving as co-counsel with Nathan Hoffman in an intellectual property infringement case for one of my entertainment clients. His work on the case, his strategies, wisdom and professionalism that he displayed during that litigation are only found in a seasoned veteran litigator. The experience makes me comfortable putting my clients in his hands whenever needed. He is my firm's go-to litigation and IP attorney in Southern California, and I also feel comfortable reaching out to him to run any idea by him. I highly recommend this professional attorney.

Suzanne DuBarry hired Nathan in 1999, and hired him more than once.

I've been lucky to know many very talented professionals in my life, and I have to say that Nate is exceptional. He is the best in his field, I know because I've used him several times. Every time I have referred him, he has exceeded everyones expectations and I'm never surprised. He is brilliant, quick and professional. Thank you Nate for all the great work you have done for me and my family! January 28, 2010
