Review David Hofstein

About Me

Mr. Hofstein is President of the domestic relations firm of Hofstein Weiner & Meyer, P.C. He is a pioneer in modern family law, having begun his practice in domestic relations contemporaneously with the creation of the Pennsylvania Divorce Code in 1980. For over thirty years since the introduction of the Divorce Code and in addition to representing clients, Mr. Hofstein has been a frequent lecturer on family law and ethics, including as an adjunct lecturer in law at the Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law for over fifteen years, teaching courses on custody, equitable distribution and professional responsibility.


He is co-editor of the 2013 text Custody Law and Practice in Pennsylvania published by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and was a co-author of West’s Pennsylvania Forms volume on Domestic Relations, both preeminent family law text books utilized by practitioners throughout the state. Mr. Hofstein has held leadership positions in national and local family law related organizations and has authored numerous articles on family law in such publications as the Philadelphia Legal Intelligencer, The Journal of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the ABA Family Law Section’s Advocate, Fair Share, Pennsylvania Law Weekly and the Pennsylvania Family Lawyer. In 1991, after practicing law at some of the most preeminent law firms in Pennsylvania, Mr. Hofstein founded his own domestic relations firm, which has served clients throughout Pennsylvania for over twenty years.
