QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Philip T. Hoffman, Esq. is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Court Mediator since January 2016 and a Certified BBB Auto Line Arbitrator. Mr Hoffman received his Bachelor of Science degree Cum Laude from the Florida State University in 1983 and his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Florida College of Law in 1987. Mr. Hoffman is an attorney licensed to practice law in Florida since 1987, although currently he is not actively engaged in the practice of law so as to devote his full time to his mediation practice. He has practiced exclusively in the specialty of Florida Worker's Compensation Law since 1987. He represented both the injured worker and the employer/carrier in the South Florida jurisdictions of Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and St Lucie counties until 1999 at which time he relocated to Pensacola and practiced in the Florida panhandle jurisdictions covering Pensacola, Panama City, Tallahassee and surrounding areas, representing the employer/carrier. Throughout his 30 years of practice Mr. Hoffman has litigated most if not all of the significant issues under the Florida Worker's Compensation Law. This experience coupled with his experience representing both sides of the litigation, the claimant and the defense, positions him to see both sides of the case to more effectively resolve disputed issues and effect global settlements.
