Stephen Hofer Named Los Angeles “Super Lawyer” for Fourth Consecutive Year

Stephen Hofer, President of the Aerlex Law Group, has again been named by Southern California Super Lawyers as one of the top attorneys in the Los Angeles region.

Every year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in Southern California are selected as “Super Lawyers.” Hofer’s inclusion in the 2013 listing of the top attorneys was announced this week by Super Lawyers rating service, a survey of outstanding lawyers and a publication of the Thomson Reuters Legal Division. The selections will be publicized in the February issue of Los Angeles magazine and in Southern California Super Lawyers magazine which will be included in the Sunday, February 10, 2013 edition of The New York Times.

The selections for this esteemed list of attorneys are made each year by the Super Lawyers attorney-led research team. The rigorous selection process includes a survey of the region’s lawyers, nominations by other attorneys, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.

Hofer is founder and President of the Aerlex Law Group, one of the nation’s premier aviation law firms. During a legal career that now spans 33 years, he has specialized in aviation, corporate, commercial and employment law.

Hofer and the Aerlex team provide guidance to clients in all sectors of the aviation industry, representing business and corporate aircraft owners, manufacturers, on-demand air carriers, airlines and airports. Aerlex attorneys and staff provide expert assistance with whole aircraft purchases and sales, leasing, financing and management, fractional jet ownership, regulatory and tax matters, real estate and litigation issues.

Hofer received his Juris Doctorate degree in 1980 from Northwestern University School of Law where he was awarded the School’s coveted Lowden-Wigmore Award for Outstanding Published Legal Writing. He has since earned Martindale-Hubbell’s highest ratings for both legal ability and ethical standards. An active member of the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) Tax Committee, Hofer served as chairman of the 2011 NBAA Business Aviation Tax Seminar. Hofer speaks regularly on legal matters to a diverse range of organizations in the aviation industry.
