James A. Hoffman
The structure of personal injury law can be as emotionally overbearing as the unanticipated incident itself. Insurance companies deal with the in’s and out’s of the system every day; to them, the life changing circumstances of a person’s injuries can easily be toned out by just another payout. Insurance Adjusters play “games” by filing claims or requesting unrelated information, which results in delayed medical treatment or unwarranted denials of claims. Injured individuals deserve more than getting a quick “pay off” for the physical, mental, emotional, and tangible value an incident causes in their life. An attorney with an understanding of the practicality of a claim and the genuine pain and suffering endured is where James Hoffman comes in.
James A. Hoffman is an Associate Attorney at the Law Offices of Moseley & Martinez, LLC with a primary focus on complex personal injury litigation, including: accidents involving automobiles, commercial trucks, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicycles. He is also involved in representing clients dealing with injuries caused by negligence (dog bites, slip & falls, etc.), as well as wrongful death accidents. Prior to joining M&M Law, James worked at one of the premier personal injury firms in Northwest Indiana. During his time as an attorney, James has represented hundreds of injured clients and he is dedicated to each and every one of them with a modern, easy-going, client-first style. With James, you will never feel like “another file on the shelf”, you’ll feel like family.
Originally from a small, rural town in Central Illinois, James attended Western Illinois University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Law Enforcement & Justice Administration with an emphasis in Pre-Law and a minor in Law & Society. Having the aspiration to become an attorney from the age of 8, he subsequently attended Valparaiso University School of Law and graduated with his Juris Doctorate in 2017. He immediately started specializing in personal injury law and has held steadfast on representing clients injured through no fault of their own, and assuring they do not get taken advantage of by large, multi-billion-dollar insurance companies.
Prior to his post-secondary schooling, at the age of 18, James made the selfless decision to enlist in the U.S. Army as a part of the Second Battalion, 123rd Field Artillery Regiment as a Tactical Data Systems Specialist. While serving in the Army, James was primarily responsible for creating firing plan schedules and mission processing while also directly overseeing and training subordinate soldiers to simultaneously operate multiple Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data Systems for both cannons and rocket launchers, used to support infantry and tank units in combat situations. As part of his duties, he also established, maintained, and operated communications systems, prepared computer centers for operation and shutdown including cabling, installation and removal of telecommunication satellites, as well as the gathering and maintaining of confidential data. In 2010, James, a decorated Veteran, was deployed to Sinai, Egypt as a part of a Multi-national mission to supervise the implementation of the security provisions of the Egyptian-Israeli Treaty of Peace and implement best efforts, including physical intervention, to prevent any violation of its terms. During his deployment, his unit was also used as a reactionary force in further support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Iraq.
Outside of work, James is extremely active and is as competitive as he is in the courtroom. His outgoing personality fuels his need to stay active. He is a sports enthusiast and spends much of his free time at the gym, golfing, playing recreational sports, or watching sports on television. His passion for all sports is exhibited by the vast array of prized memorabilia within his collection displayed throughout his office and home. James is the prime example of a well-rounded, hardworking, and overall reliable individual who refuses to back down to scumbag insurance companies. That being said, as competitive as he is, you could say he is a great team player in and out of the office. Of course, every hustle has a halftime. Outside of sports, quality time spent with family and friends is a high priority for James. As an enthusiastic and dedicated attorney, balancing work and home life is no easy task, but his positive attitude and loyalty shows through his devotion to prioritizing not only his clients, but his family as well.
