Dustin Hoff is a trial attorney at Christensen Law, practicing out of the Southfield, Ann Arbor, and Grand Rapids offices. He has been working alongside Founder David Christensen and Managing Attorney Sarah Stempky Kime since April 2015. A highly accomplished lawyer, Dustin represents individual personal injury clients as well as medical provider clients.
Role at Christensen Law
Dustin’s primary focus has been to assist the firm’s medical provider clients, advocating on their behalf when the insurance companies deny or delay payment for services provided to auto accident victims.
Patient and thorough, he takes the time to make sure he obtains all the necessary facts of each case. A tough litigator, Dustin adeptly defends his clients’ position, fighting on their behalf against non-paying insurance companies.
In dealing with clients, he draws on his own personal childhood experiences. A product of the thumb region of rural Michigan, Hoff’s childhood was a lesson in understanding what his clients go through.
“I am one of five children. My mother has muscular dystrophy, and my father was a disabled Vietnam Veteran. I saw them struggle every day. Whether it was a major obstacle like walking, or simple routines of daily living – putting on socks, cleaning dishes, making dinner – I saw how it impacted everything, all things the able-bodied take for granted. Many of these are the same challenges victims of auto accidents and negligence endure. My parents’ struggles provided me with firsthand knowledge and an understanding of the suffering our clients experience.”
Dustin attended Saginaw Valley State University and Edge Hill University in England before getting his Juris Doctor from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2013. He was admitted to the Michigan State Bar in 2014, at which time he took a position with a firm in Sandusky, Michigan defending the rights of personal injury victims. He has experience in wrongful death, auto accidents, and insurance disputes, as well as other forms of civil and criminal law.
A family man and resident of Plymouth, Michigan, Dustin spends his time with his family and enjoys traveling, concerts, and the occasional golf game.
Dustin joined the Michigan Association for Justice in November 2014. From the start, his focus has been on representing individuals and their needs.
“I love giving a voice to and protecting the rights of injured victims. Most people have no experience with the legal system, especially after an accident. It’s important we don’t let them fall through the cracks along with their rights.”
