Joshua J. Hofer
Mr. Hofer practices general civil litigation, and has successfully managed several hundred civil lawsuits in more than a dozen states over the last 5 years.
Joshua’s broad litigation expertise extends from contract disputes to a variety of statutory claims, such as the Truth in Lending Act, the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and related state consumer finance and protection statutes. He has also handled cases involving general real property issues and personal injury claims.
After graduating summa cum laude from law school, where he was an Articles Editor on the law review, Joshua spent one year clerking for Judge Roger Wollman on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals before joining Morris Laing in 2008.
Joshua enjoys traveling and has visited several countries in Europe along with China and Thailand. So far, no city has yet compared to the majesty of Denali or the grandeur of the giant sequoias. He plans next to wander India with his wife, who was born there. He is also an avid reader.
