John Hoff's Employer Identified As Colclazier & Associates of Seminole, Oklahoma


Sorry for the delay in posting this information but, I have been dealing with another matter that continues to take up most of my time.

I have been able to confirm that John Hoff aka Johnny Northside has been staying in Oklahoma in recent months while working for Colclazier and Associates in a undetermined capacity. The law firm is located in Seminole, Oklahoma which is near the city of Ada.

Hoff submitted an application to the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners in early September 2013 to be allowed to take the Oklahoma Bar exam in hopes of becoming a licensed attorney  in the State of Oklahoma. Yes.... Oklahoma.
He has claimed on his blog that he has no plans to move from Minnesota so, I can only speculate that he has been maintaining his north Minneapolis address for residency while working in Oklahoma perhaps on a contract basis.

The law firm Hoff has been working for also employs Lloyd Palmer who is an attorney. Palmer is likely the person who encouraged Hoff to try to make use of his law degree that he obtained from the University of North Dakota nearly 10 years ago.
Hoff made mention of a buddy in one of his articles that was determined to be Sgt. Lloyd Palmer who was also in the same National Guard unit with Hoff,  the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
Here is a link to an audio interview with Palmer:
Lloyd Palmer interview

Here is the information on the law firm Hoff is believed to still be working for...

Colclazier and Associates

404 N Main St
SeminoleOK 74868
(405) 382-1212


A reminder to all readers:
The next time the Bar exam will be offered in Oklahoma is February 2014. In order for John Hoff to be allowed to take the exam, he must pass a character fitness and background check by the Board of Examiners. They will look into the background for the moral character of Hoff and it is my belief that under no circumstances should John Hoff be allowed to take that exam nor should he be allowed the opportunity to become a licensed attorney in any State.
If you have documentation of past Hoff behavior that you believe the Board of Examiners should consider in their investigation, please click the following link for instructions.

Please help me, and others, out. Anybody? Are you able to create and provide a "template" of what a letter to the Bar Exam Folks in Ok. should look like? perhaps include some language and topics and examples of Johnny No-good's ethical lapses, etc. It's go-time, a one time opportunity, and some folks, like myself, do not know how to begin.

We really need to make the Minneapolis housing inspections people understand that John Hoff is living in Oklahoma, and ILLEGALLY renting out his house as an ABSENTEE LANDLORD.

Posted to john's blog about the co-op of which he claims to be a part:

Helluva commute to your grocer from another state.... not that you honestly would have forked over 100 bucks ... of course, maybe that's the only way you could have actually felt a part of something...

Will he venture to approve?

DO NOT COPY AND PASTE WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN HERE INTO YOUR LETTER
I have already written this, and your letter will seem like a copy.

I would prefer to not tell you what to write as if you copied what me and others wrote in the same format, it would seem like a form letter and not a personal plea to prevent John Hoff from becoming an attorney, to protect the public.

First you need to read the following documents of the professional standards expected of attorneys in Oklahoma:

http://www.okbar.org/members/EthicsCounsel/StandardsProfessionalism.aspx

http://www.okbar.org/members/EthicsCounsel/LawyersCreed.aspx

Once you read these documents you can see that John Hoff is not going to follow or obey these standards.
John Hoff has his own interpretation of rule and regulations, and manipulates them to his own needs.
Example: 1) John Hoff has written in his blog that it is acceptable to buy stolen property from strangers on the street, so long at it keeps the stolen property in his neighborhood. 2) John Hoff has written a book about dumpster diving in which he advocates theft, damage to property, even burglary. More recently in his blog he has written that he still breaks into locked dumpsters to take items, AND he breaks into boarded up houses to steal wood that he burns in his wood burning stove in his house. Hoff believes that if an item is in close proximity to a dumpster it is fair gave to take.
This type of behavior alone should disqualify John Hoff from passing the ethics portion of the background investigation. Can any State allow someone to be licensed as an attorney who believes it is acceptable to violate the law?

John Hoff posts the Hennepin County jail roster for the purpose of having those names saved in the Google internet search engines, so that those names will pop up in a search for the sole purpose of making it difficult for those individual to get employment or housing. He doesn't care if they are ultimately guilty or innocent; he just wants to make their lives miserable.
Is this the behavior of an ethical and moral attorney? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Further, he has written that for $250 he will delete the name from his blog - Blackmail?

The point is that you write the Ethical Practices Board and express your sincere opinion that the behaviors displayed by John Hoff are contrary to the morals and ethics expected by a licensed attorney.
Based on John Hoff's behavioral history (which is readily available on the internet) there can be absolutely no expectation that he will change his behavior or beliefs if granted a law license in Oklahoma. John Hoff NEVER - EVER learns any lessons from his past experiences. With John Hoff history absolutely will repeat itself.
When elected to the city council in Grand Forks, North Dakota he was voted out of office three months later in a special recall election due to his abusive and disruptive behavior.
Currently, John Hoff is the subject in several Facebook groups where his racist blogging is the topic, and how he is despised by residents of north Minneapolis.
It is guaranteed that once licensed as an attorney Hoff will abuse that privilege and be subject to discipline that will embarrass the Oklahoma Bar Association.

John Hoff must never obtain a law license as he is a malicious predator who thrives on the hurt and misery he inflicts on others. John Hoff feels empowered when he has some type official authority, which is what he will gain if granted a law license. He will use the authority granted by a law license to perpetuate his abusive blogging, and harassment of those that he feels have wronged him. John Hoff will use his law license to obtain non-public documents and information which he will publish in his blog.
The laws and regulations of a civil society are ignored by John Hoff, which is why he cannot and should not be allowed the privilege of a license to the practice of law in ANY State.

The WIRTH COOP has officially informed me that they are in no way associated with John Hoff or his blog. They don't even read it.

Has anyone contacted the managing partner at Colclazier & Associates to let them know what a deranged sociopath they have working for them? I can't imagine why a law firm would allow someone like John Hoff to be associated with them.

Jim Watkins said...

@ Anon 9:50-
I haven't. The handful of people I have talked to about him working there, have not called them either. The contact info is posted here so, feel free to contact them if you like.
I suspect they know a lot about him already since John was in Afghanistan with his buddy who recruited him to the firm.
Your efforts can't hurt though but... I hope you and other readers have or will submit documentation of Hoff's un-ethical behavior in the past to the Oklahoma Board of Bar Examiners. The cutoff date for getting them info is December 23, 2013.

Just talked to Colclazer and Assoc. John Hoff did do some stuff for them but does not anymore. The woman on the phone cited the number of complaints the law firm received about Johnny's online activity and did not want to be associated with him

Are you kidding me? Companies have strict and stringent information that they can give out. They don’t even give out simple employment information without consent or authorization. The company I work for wont even do that. Give us a damn break and this LAW firm told you that. Ok, yeah! Did she give you his address and SSN number?

Anonymous said...

Why yes I have that information, Hoff lives at 2226 Bryant Av N, 55411, and his SSN ends with 751#. I won't give the whole thing because that would open John to identity theft, and I'm not a prick like him.
BTW his address in public information, you could have Googled it.
And calling up and asking was no violation because Hoff was NEVER an employee. And employment verification does NOT require the employee's permission.
You'd be surprised what info you can get from the credit reporting companies too.

Looking for a job Dana? You're lucky Target won't say anything or you could be unemployed a long time.

Have you read Hoff's blog lately? He's threatening to sue those that post nasty comments about him. What a fricken WUSS Hoff is. HE can defame people in his blog, but if someone calls HIM something nasty he threatens to sue.
John Hoff is a classic sociopath. His disturbing behavior marked with aggression, disruption, stalking, and harassment is documented going back at least 18 years. How can someone with the behaviors John Hoff exhibits be allowed to have a law license.
Just read this definition of a sociopath and tell me it is not just like John Hoff:

http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html

Some of the descriptors of a sociopath that apply to John Hoff:

 Egotistical to the point of narcissism.
 Does not perceive that anything is wrong with them
 Only rarely in difficulty with the law, but seeks out situations where their tyrannical behavior will be tolerated, condoned, or admired
 Unable to feel remorse or guilt
 Repeated assaults on others.
 Rationalizing the pain they inflict on others.
 Seem to have an innate ability to find the weakness in people
 Quick to anger
 Has only a shallow range of emotions and lack guilt
 There's no distinction between friend, family and sucker
 Tend to give vague and inconsistent replies
 Manipulative and Conning
 Pathological Lying
 Callousness/Lack of Empathy
 Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature


Anyone who knows John Hoff will quickly identify these behaviors as classic John Hoff.
Clearly he is a mentally and emotionally unbalanced individual. And for the record, he has a brother, Judd, who the state tried to commit as a mentally ill person. Maybe it runs in the family?

John Hoff is a “public person” for all purposes of reporting and commentary. The information written here is factual, or opinion based on facts. Therefore, John Hoff has no basis to file any type of civil action. This writing is protected under the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

So John go grab another bottle of cheap wine and guzzle it down. You’ll feel better after you sleep off another bender.

Good news for John Hoff:

http://www.startribune.com/blogs/242930321.html

Since this is the only reason John Hoff selected North Minneapolis as his new home, after a failed attempt at house flipping in North Dakota which he blogged about extensively - FACT.

inspectorwatson said...

It has been verified that John Hoff is no longer associated with Colclazier & Assoc.
While he was a contract worker there and could be contacted there in October 2013, it is confirmed that there is no such person working at that law firm now, nor will he be working there in the future.

Where ever John Hoff goes, he burns bridges and makes people detest him.
John Hoff NEVER learns from his past experiences, and his history will always repeat itself.

It sure didn't take long for Colclazier & Assoc to give John Willard Hoff the boot out the door.

Hopefully, the Oklohoma Bar Association will not make the mistake of granting "Americas favorite Dochebag" a law license.

Unfortunately, I don't know that the state of OK will too bothered by this. I noticed that you mentioned his buddy, Lloyd Brent Palmer. Palmer has himself been convicted of several criminal felonies (5 counts), including attempted burglary, malicious injury to property, DUI, 2 counts of assault & battery on a police officer, as well as disturbing the peace charges and 2 mis. public intox convictions.

Jim Watkins said...

@ Anon 2:27
Are you sure you have the correct person? I recall seeing more than one person with that name when I was looking for info. I am not thinking it is the same guy as Hoff's buddy simply because, I can't see the Oklahoma Bar Association and the National Guard both looking the other way from that kind of record.
