nancy-hoffmann-headshot-smNancy Little Hoffmann represents clients in a wide variety of civil appellate matters, including appeals, original writ proceedings, and petitions for supreme court review. Her clients include persons injured as a result of negligence or intentional harm, or maritime incidents; victims of medical malpractice; and families of wrongful death victims. In addition, she assists clients who are embroiled in family law disputes, working to remedy inequitable decisions regarding alimony, child support and visitation, and property distribution. Other clients include businesses and individuals who need help in correcting decisions involving insurance coverage, contract matters, and other disputes arising in the business world.

In complex litigation, particularly in personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death matters, she can also assist trial lawyers at an early stage of the case in order to provide legal support such as research, argument, and drafting of jury instructions and verdict forms, particularly in complex cases. Many trial lawyers have found that association with an experienced appellate lawyer at an early stage of the litigation had helped them to achieve a fair settlement; or, if the case proceeds to trial, to identify potential appellate issues and to protect the record on appeal.

Ms. Hoffmann will be glad to consult with you about your case and will give you a frank assessment as to whether you can appeal a particular matter – and perhaps as important, based upon her extensive experience, whether you should file an appeal. Should you decide to retain the firm to go forward with an appeal, or to defend an appeal brought by your adversary, Ms. Hoffmann will handle your case personally, welcoming your valuable input throughout the process.
