Isaac Hof is proud to be an active trial attorney who practices in the Lehigh Valley and throughout Pennsylvania.  He understands the importance of helping his clients navigate the legal challenges so often brought on by sudden tragedy.  Equally important, Isaac knows what it takes to obtain the results his clients need to help them move forward with their lives. 

Isaac has successfully represented injured victims in a variety of personal injury matters, including motor vehicle accidents (car, tractor-trailer, bus, motorcycle, pedestrian, and bicycle), premises liability (slip / trip and fall accidents), nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, FELA claims (railroad accidents), and products liability.  He has litigated numerous claims at the municipal, arbitration and trial court levels throughout Pennsylvania.  Isaac also serves as an Arbitrator for the Court of Common Pleas Northampton County Compulsory Arbitration program.

Mr. Hof graduated summa cum laude from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 2012, where he received recognition for graduating with one of the five highest GPAs in his class.  Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Hof served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Legrome D. Davis in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and subsequently practiced civil litigation at Stradley Ronon Stevens & Young, LLP in Philadelphia. 

When not practicing law, Isaac enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and rooting for the Philadelphia Eagles.  Isaac also is an avid runner.  In 2018, he completed the AACR Philadelphia Marathon – a 26.2 mile race throughout the city of Philadelphia.
