El Dorado County’s top peace officer, Sheriff John D’Agostini, is endorsing Joseph Hoffman for El Dorado County Superior Court Judge, Office 5.
“Joe Hoffman’s integrity and respect for existing laws make him the best choice for judge,” said D’Agostini. “I admire Joe for his commitment to his profession and passion for our community.”
With broad legal and judicial experience spanning 19 years, Hoffman is also endorsed by Superior Court judges including Douglas Phimister and Daniel Proud, the El Dorado County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, local prosecutors, peace officers from around the region and numerous community leaders.
Hoffman, 44, has handled hundreds of cases in El Dorado County since founding his private law practice in 1995. He has also served as a Superior Court judge pro tem since 2001, and as a private judge retained by both parties’ attorneys for faster decisions than the courts typically provide.
He is seeking the judicial seat (Office 5) currently held by Judge Proud, who is not seeking re-election.
