“I was referred to Alan Hoffenberg by a friend and after our initial consultation I was confident he would be the right choice to handle my divorce. He did not disappoint. He was sensitive to my needs, kept me on track with what needed to be done and helped me with all of the daunting paperwork every step of the way. His guidance throughout the process was very helpful and he handled the opposing counsel with the right amount of professional “toughness” that represented my best interests. The divorce was completed in a timely manner and I was pleased with the outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Alan Hoffenberg for his professionalism, and vast knowledge and experience in marital law."

Marcia C.

Evanston, IL


Alan Hoffenberg was my divorce attorney, representing me in the dissolution of a 30 year marriage.

He was not only my attorney; he was also my counselor, helping me through a very difficult time in my life. He was a good friend when I needed it, but more importantly he was strong when I wasn’t and protective when I needed him.

No one wants to have a divorce attorney, but I always knew that Alan was diligently working on my behalf and always had my best interests at heart.

Three years after my divorce, when my former spouse decided to take me back to court, my case went to trial. It was then that Alan showed me a different side of him, a powerful force in the courtroom that I was glad to have on my side. He proved to the judge that my ex-husband was undeserving of reducing the settlement and he fought to allow me to retain my dignity and preserve my financial independence. Thank you Alan."
