Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
In early 2020 I settled a case for a woman who had been badly injured in an auto collision. She was driving her car when she was rear ended by someone who had been traveling too fast for the conditions of the road at the time. I was able to prove this through the use of an accident reconstruction expert and a weather expert. The weather expert was able to look up the weather conditions from the day of the injury and show that temperatures were cold enough to cause icy roads. The accident reconstructionist was able to show the speed the other person’s car was going at the time of the collision. Between the two it was clear the defendant was driving too fast for the road conditions. I was also able to use formal opinions from my client’s neurologist to show that my client had experienced a mild traumatic brain injury. The other side hired neurologist to testify for their side, but at his deposition, I was able to attack this person’s credibility enough to make his testimony not worth much to the defense.

How did you build a successful practice?
I have built a successful practice by getting successful results for my clients. I am willing to take cases to trial and the other side knows this. They are also aware that I have a successful track record.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Client’s should look for a lawyer who is not just a lot of talk. You nee someone with a successful record of taking cases to trial. Only when you have taken cases to trial will you have credibility with the other side in any settlement negotiations.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
In Connecticut, the law is applied fairly evenly throughout the State. The judges in some courthouses can have individual preferences that can matter a lot in family cases. However the judges are rotated around to different courthouses every few years.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Legal cases are complicated matters. Phone conferences should be kept to a minimum. In a brief phone conference, you just can’t get the full picture of what will happen in your case. There is much information that I need to gather as an attorney before I can even begin to formulate any advice for a client. In Family law cases, I can listen take a few minutes to listen to you about your particular problem, and let you know what I can do to help you. Personal injury case consultations are always free as part of the contingency fee.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
In a free telephone conversation, I usually get the facts necessary to know if I have a case that I can pursue for a client. In a personal injury case, I need to know if a incident report was filed, did the incident happen in Connecticut, or has the statute of limitations passed. I also need to know what injuries my client is claiming.

  • Immigration Law
    Attorney Kevin L. Hoffkins has successfully represented clients in just about every area of immigration law including all employment-based petitions, family-based petitions, and removal cases. Attorney Hoffkins has successfully obtained National Interest Waivers for his clients which show that his client's presence in the U.S. deserves expedited processing of their cases. He has obtained hundreds of h-1b visas and labor certifications for his clients.

  • Family Law Cases
    1. A difficult case involving a child custody and visitation dispute which was complicated by the client's visa status. The client was the mother, but her visa status was dependent on her husband. If she got divorced she would be forced to leave the country, while the husband was determined to remain here. This case was complicated for the judges had to be educated about the finer points of immigration law which they do not normally know. In the end, Attorney Hoffkins achieved a settlement in which the mother remained in the country and had a fair custody arrangement with the father. 2. A client who's wife had taken the child from the family home and denied him access to the child, and did not tell him of her whereabouts. Attorney Hoffkins went to court and received an order the same day granting the father sole custody of the child pending the outcome of the case. 3. A client who was the President of a multimillion-dollar corporation whose wife ruining him by running up his legal bills with costly discovery and court motions. Attorney Hoffkins took over the case, and brought the discovery to an end and contained the legal fees.

  • Personal Injury Cases
    1. A client who was totally incapacitated after having been the victim of two auto collisions on the same day. This case presented serious legal difficulties in proving which of the other cars caused what amount of her injuries. In the end, Attorney Hoffkins received the full amount of the auto insurance coverage for the other two defendants. 2. A client who suffered a traumatic brain injury after having suffered previous traumatic brain injury over a decade earlier. This case was extremely complicated in two ways. First, traumatic brain injury cases are always difficult to prove, for this injury does not show up on an X-ray or MRI. Second, we had to prove how much more brain damage occurred as a result of the second incident, which was difficult since the client's changes in behavior were very subtle. Attorney Hoffkins achieved a substantial settlement for his client. 3. A client who was hit by a truck that was operated by an international industrial corporation, and received a herniated disc in his lumbar spine. This case was extremely difficult since the international corporation tried to hide behind a web of several separate corporate entities. Attorney Hoffkins immediately filed an action in court and went to work using the discovery process to get the corporation to provide the information about the appropriate corporation to use as the defendant. The end result was a settlement in excess of $100,000.
