Herb Hofmann was born in Chicago, Illinois, but after a few years, his family moved to Sarasota County, Florida where he was raised. He graduated from Pine View High School and then attended New College for a year when he transferred to Florida State University. In 1989, he received his Bachelor of Science degrees in Finance and Multinational Business Operations Cum Laude and then his Juris Doctorate degree in 1991 Cum Laude.
As an undergraduate, Mr. Hofmann was elected to the Golden Key National Honor Society, Beta Gamma Sigma National Business Honor Society, U.S. Achievement Academy National Award Winner, and All American Scholar Award Winner.
While attending law school, Mr. Hofmann was elected into Phi Delta Phi International legal honorary society and served as its Magister. He received the Phi Delta Phi Certificate of Merit and was a member of Who’s Who Among American Law Students. He also presided on the student supreme court for Florida State University.
Mr. Hofmann began his legal career working in Sarasota for a private firm handling personal injury claims. It didn’t take long and he knew that he wanted to be a trial lawyer. Instead of following the typical private firm path, he became an Assistant State Attorney for the 12th Judicial Circuit and prosecuted criminals for two years.
Having tried countless jury and bench trials, Mr. Hofmann was hired by a long-standing local firm where he handled personal injury claims for injured persons and extra contractual matters defending local establishments against negligence claims. He had just begun his partnership track when he was invited to join the Law Firm of Morgan & Morgan in 1999.
Today, he is one of the owners and is the managing partner of Morgan & Morgan’s Sarasota office. He focuses his practice on wrongful death and severe personal injuries resulting from vehicle crashes and premises liability.
Since joining Morgan & Morgan, Mr. Hofmann has been a frequent seminar presenter for effectively prosecuting a personal injury claim both in house and for plaintiffs’ lawyers from across the country. In 2013, he was selected for membership in The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyers. This organization is noted as being composed of the premier trial lawyers from across the nation.
Less than one percent of all attorneys are invited to join. In 2014, he was invited and joined the Southern Trial Lawyers Association comprised of an elite group of lawyers who are among the most respected by their peers and who are honored for the work they do to protect the individuals and families they represent and the profession they uphold.
He is also a member of The Florida Bar, The Sarasota County Bar Association, The Florida Justice Association, the Manasota Trial Lawyers Board and the American Association for Justice. He consistently ranks within the firm’s top-producing personal injury lawyers for the Tampa office and has represented more than 10,550 clients for Morgan & Morgan.
One of the most significant aspects of the selection process involves attorneys’ relationships and reputation among his or her clients. As clients should be an attorney’s top priority, AIOPIA places the utmost emphasis on selecting lawyers who have achieved significant success in the field of Personal Injury law without sacrificing the service and support they provide.
Selection criteria, therefore, focus on attorneys who demonstrate the highest standards of Client Satisfaction. Mr. Hofmann works tirelessly in his fight to help the injured people he serves.
