About me

With 34 years experience as a full time lawyer helping clients in my private practice, my firm has developed a committment to delivering value.

I still ski, jog, bike and play tennis when I'm not taking continuing legal education seminars to enhance the skills that we bring to professionalism.

I'm an elected Boardmember for High Point Regional High School and currently its finance chairman.

  • James Peter McGovern

    Joe Hoffmann is an excellent attorney. I got to know Joe when I began practicing in Sussex County 6 years ago. As his office was a block from my own we would see each other often. As a colleague, I have always found him to be knowledgeable in the law, courteous, responsive, professional and forthright. A highly skilled estate and elder law attorney, he prepares thoroughly, and is tenacious, eloquent and persuasive on behalf of his clients. Prospective clients can be confident they will be well-served by him.
