How Our Accolades Benefit You

At the Bethlehem law firm of Seidel, Cohen, Hof & Reid, L.L.C., we are proud of the accolades and honors we have received over the years. We also believe our exceptional experience greatly benefits clients. Yet you may be wondering, why does it make a difference in your case? How does our firm's recognition translate into better results for you?

Let's take a look at a few things that set us apart:


Board-Certified Civil Trial Specialist

Partner Philip M. Hof is one of the few lawyers in the Lehigh Valley who is board-certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. In order to obtain this certification, he had to clearly demonstrate skill and expertise in civil trial advocacy, and he had to pass a rigorous examination.

Why It Matters:

Real, in-depth experience presenting cases before judges and juries means that we will take your case as far as legally possible to obtain the best results we can for you. Without skill and confidence in the courtroom, it's very tempting for attorneys to simply settle a case. With us, we enjoy the challenge of fighting for maximum compensation for you. In addition, insurance companies know that we will not hesitate to take a case to trial, which often results in much better offers.


Top 100 Lawyers In Pennsylvania

Mr. Hof has also been named one of the top 100 attorneys in Pennsylvania by Super Lawyers every year from 2010 to 2016. To achieve this honor, he had to be nominated annually by peers. Then, Super Lawyers had to conduct independent research on him. Finally, he had to pass an evaluation.

Why It Matters:

When you work with a lawyer who has been selected by other attorneys as one of the best, you know that your case is in good hands. Anyone can claim to be talented, but having third parties confirm it gives you confidence that you've chosen an excellent advocate.


Rated AV Preeminent

Mr. Hof has earned an AV Preeminent rating through Martindale-Hubbell, the leading national lawyer directory, indicating the highest possible level of competency and ethics.

AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ fall into two categories - legal ability and general ethical standards.

Why It Matters:

Because only lawyers with the highest degree of legal ability and ethical standards earn this rating, you know that you're working with someone who will handle your case with integrity and skill. You don't have to worry about whether your lawyer knows what he's doing or whether he's being honest with you — you have clear evidence of character and ability.


More Than 100 Years Of Combined Experience

Seidel, Cohen, Hof & Reid, L.L.C., is composed of several attorneys who have more than 100 years of combined legal experience.

Why It Matters:

With our exceptional wealth of experience, we are able to anticipate potential problems and proactively create solutions. If you're looking for an attorney with more than book learning or head knowledge, choose us. We have practical, hands-on skill learned through extensive practice, which translates into real world solutions, not just ones that look good on paper.


Serving The Lehigh Valley Since 1942

We have been serving people and businesses throughout the Lehigh Valley for more than 75 years.

Why It Matters:

Our longevity in this particular area of Pennsylvania means that we know the people here. We know the courts, the judges and the opposing counsel. We also know the intricacies of local law. All this knowledge allows us to create a well-thought-out plan of attack for accomplishing your goals.
