Tamara L. Hoffstatter

tamara-hoffstatterTamara Hoffstatter began her legal career as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in Muskegon, Michigan in the Juvenile/Abuse and Neglect Department.  In the years that followed, she practiced in personal injury, insurance subrogation, collections and bankruptcy law in the States of Maryland and Michigan in order to gain as much trial experience as possible.  After honing her trial skills, she opened a firm in Michigan dedicated to the practice of insurance subrogation, commercial collections, and bankruptcy.  While working in that legal field, she became aware of a common overlap between bankruptcy and collection cases, and divorce cases, which affords her a unique perspective in her approach to the financial aspects of a divorce case.  A growing interest in family law, coupled with her enthusiasm as a young attorney working with children and families, led her to take a position with a nationwide family law firm in its Michigan office and allowed her to return to the legal arena that first sparked her interest in client advocacy.  In 2013, the firm approached her to relocate to New Mexico to open up a branch office in Albuquerque.  She is currently an associate at New Mexico Divorce and Custody Law, LLC where she practices exclusively in family law.  She and her wife Michelle, raised two children together, and are also the proud “parents” of six rescue dogs.  She graduated from the University of Iowa in 1996 with a B.S., with honors, in Political Science.  She is a 1999 graduate of the University of Iowa College of Law.

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.   A.N.

Going through a divorce is an agonizing process, the emotional distress was overwhelming at times and the financial implications only exacerbated my anxiety. On top of that I had to hire a lawyer and hope that they would be professional, reliable and honest. I found that at NM Divorce & Custody and can’t express how fortunate I felt to have had Mary Ann Burmester’s representation in what I thought was going to be a quick divorce. Mary Ann is sharp, knowledgeable and honest. She gave me recommendations that I felt comfortable in taking and I never felt her representation didn’t have my best interests in mind. Mary Ann was an excellent advocate when my husband’s lawyer was requesting things from me that were completely unnecessary and had no purpose other than escalating expenses. She and her team were on top of things from day one, leaving me no doubt I’d made the right choice. I’d recommend them to absolutely anyone. A.B.
