Founded in 1995, James & Hoffman is made up of seasoned advocates and specialists with decades of legal and practical experience. Our lawyers maintain an extensive national practice, prosecuting and defending a wide variety of cases in federal and state trial courts, appellate courts, administrative agencies and alternate dispute resolution forums. From our base in Washington, D.C., we also provide legislative counsel and representation before Congress, access to executive branch agencies, and participation in federal rulemaking and other regulatory processes. James & Hoffman partners have represented major national and international unions as general counsel; they currently serve as general counsel to the nation's largest healthcare & property services union.
From the firm's inception, James & Hoffman has made human rights, civil liberties and social justice an important part of our work, not only in the United States but in global forums. We partner with international and domestic groups to fight abuses, here and abroad, through education, advocacy and impact litigation. Our firm has incubated and supported significant community and human rights projects, and James & Hoffman attorneys have gone on to lead and continue these local and international initiatives. Our ongoing pro bono work includes successful enforcement of wage standards and other laws for the benefit of the most vulnerable and exploited workers.
James & Hoffman is committed to providing strong and cost-effective representation, whether in complex litigation, large-scale and class actions, or individual employment disputes and negotiations. Our flexible, collegial structure allows us to draw on the strengths, skills and resources best suited to any given task or project. We continually seek innovative solutions to our clients' needs, both in and out of court.
