    "No nonsense, gets to the point!"

    Ms. Tamara Hoffstatter represented us in a custody dispute. A matter where mom wasn’t the greatest and dad wanted to raise his daughter properly and safely. Tamara is straight to the point with her clients and gives us realistic expectations, but every time has helped deliver exactly what we were fighting for. I would say her strengths are in making the other party comfortable and keeping our objectives in mind. She’s realistic with her cost and is aware of the expensive cost to take on proceedings. She doesn’t want to waste your time or money and is aware of fund usage. I’ve had to hire 4 attorneys in my lifetime and her twice and I would do so again.

    "My partner and I were thrilled with our entire experience with this firm from start to finish."

    My partner and I were thrilled with our entire experience with this firm from start to finish. Ivy was kind, efficient, and responsive as she tenaciously followed up with us over many weeks.  Our multiple consultations with Tamara were the ultimate experience. After speaking with several other attorneys who contributed mere stock responses to our questions and no strategy whatsoever, Tamara met us outside the box. With her creative thinking and intellectual curiosity, she offered innovative and insightful paths of moving forward. Her honest assessment of our case offered an infusion of confidence to help propel us through the legal slog. Her engaging demeanor rendered an otherwise tedious discussion enjoyable and stimulating. She possesses both the presence and powerful thinking of a real-life fairy god lawyer. I unreservedly recommend this firm to anyone looking for services in divorce, custody, and family law.

    "Highly satisfied working with this firm. Tamara was exceptional."

    Highly satisfied working with this firm. Tamara was exceptional. Not only did she and her team provide impeccable services she was very empathetic of my budget, legal needs and how being a military parent can be very difficult when it comes to custody. Tamara and her team was always available to answer any of my questions and concerns within a time efficient manner. This firm did not waste a single penny of mine. Tamara was straightforward with everything from the beginning and was very informative about what to expect from the court systems and not once sugar coated anything and that’s exactly the kind of lawyer I need. My overall experience was outstanding and I have found a team that will best represent me in future court visits. I recommend this firm 100%.

      Professional, well prepared and compassionate.

      "

      Tamara Hoffstatter was my attorney for a family law matter. She was professional, well prepared and compassionate. The office and business practices are well managed. Because I live abroad, the entire team of lawyers and staff made an extra effort to accommodate me and this extra complication.

      ""

      We were hit with an out of the blue custody case this last year and quickly hired the firm to represent us. Not only did they help calm any fears we had but they were up front about what could happen and how we could plan for it. The team was always helpful and on point with anything that the opposing firm tried to do. We hired NMDCL for other cases that stemmed out from the initial court case and couldn't be happier with how we as a family were treated and represented. Thank you!

      "I am back in NM and I will never look back thinking that he got the best of me..."

      The day I walked into your office I did not believe that my divorce would take such a toll on my life, the fact and promise you made that you would never leave my side at any point even when I just couldn’t find the strength to open emails because it was so painful to read has defined a new beginning for me. I am back in NM and I will never look back thinking that he got the best of me, because you kept your promise to me and because I am doing it; I am living life again!

      "I believe you were diligent about not incurring additional costs unless they were absolutely necessary."

      I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your representation. I can’t tell you how confident and comfortable I felt having you represent me and the peace of mind that brought was worth more than I could have imagined. I never once felt that you were working without my best interests in mind and contrary to my ex-husband’s experience, the expenses incurred were reasonable and fair, and I believe you were diligent about not incurring additional costs unless they were absolutely necessary.

      "The best decision I’ve made in a very long time was hiring an extremely talented and intelligent lawyer, Ms. Tamara Hoffstatter."

      Difference between a sad event and a tragic event? A sad event is when a bus full of lawyers goes over a cliff, a tragic event? One lives. I used to feel that way. Until I needed a lawyer. The best decision I’ve made in a very long time was hiring an extremely talented and intelligent lawyer, Ms. Tamara Hoffstatter, and the rest of the team at NM Divorce & Custody Law LLC . After a string of affairs, the now ex-wife decided we weren’t compatible and filed for divorce and ended 32 years of marriage. The amount of financial information that Tamara had to go through was staggering. In addition, the now ex took much of the information needed to prepare my case with her and acted like it didn’t exist. Furthermore, the ex’s lawyer was the type you hope would be in that bus from above. With her personal attacks in almost every correspondence, making up accusations about me and demanding insignificant information at every turn, Ms. Hoffstatter , her Paralegal, Ms Nolan, other staff and the Office Manager, Juan Diego Chavez, consistently embodied a level of professionalism that was truly admirable. They would respond to the immature and needless demands with magnificent deftness and efficiency. Tamara, always taking into account the need to NOT waist my money, would clear an answer through me and respond to only those accusations that furthered the goal of concluding my case. Tamara’s competence was like a bright beacon that blinded the opposing counsel’s bravado and bulling. This was never more evident than on the day of Mediation. Tamara had 32 years of ‘married’ life and financial information, and all that entails, succinctly and accurately placed into a 2 page document. When opposing Counsel arrived, she had 2 boxes of papers, and absolutely no organization. What should have taken 3 hours at the most, was dragged out to 10 due to the opposing counsels apparent desire to make money. Several insights that I had during the divorce process were confirmed by the end of it. The obvious. Money will be spent – a lot of money, to end an unwanted process. However, the crystal clear difference is that Tamara and the staff at NM Divorce & Custody know this and do everything in their power to be expeditious and NOT waist your money. I can honestly say that Tamara and NM Divorce & Custody are prodigies in their job, accomplished in their field and the consummate professionals in their approach and actions. I do not recommend ANYTHING lightly. In this case however, there is no one I recommend more highly than Tamara Hoffstatter and NM Divorce & Custody Law, LLC!
