"As senior partner of the firm it is my responsibility to make sure your rights are protected, and of that you can be assured." - Joseph J. Hoffman, Jr.

Since 1978, Mr. Hoffman and his partner Kenneth A. DiMuzio, Sr., have been serving New Jersey and are proud to have accumulated these kind reviews from past clients...



Nothing can spare families the pain and grief associated with the death of a loved one. This is especially true when that death was caused by the negligent act or misconduct of another person or entity. That loss can also be financially devastating in the short and long term.

At Hoffman DiMuzio, we have spent 35 years representing families of victims wrongfully harmed by another’s conduct and have recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. Whether death occurs on a roadway, construction site, from a product or in some other way, we use our knowledge and experience to help our clients through this difficult time.  We can’t heal the emotional scars left by the loss of a loved one, but we will fight to make sure you get what you need and deserve.

If you’ve lost a loved one and question why, it is important that you understand your options. Each personal injury attorney at Hoffman DiMuzio understands how wrenching it is for families to deal with financial considerations at such difficult times or to confront that someone may be responsible for the loss of their loved one. That is why it is important to have experienced and compassionate attorneys to help you navigate the process involved in your wrongful death case.

What constitutes a wrongful death case?

Wrongful death may be the result of:

  • An automobile or truck accident
  • Workplace accidents, injuries or illnesses
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Murder or manslaughter
  • Other negligent actions or misconduct


At Hoffman DiMuzio, we know your settlement may be the only justice for your loved one and your family. It is important to work with an attorney who is intimately experienced in dealing with wrongful death cases and will fight to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your loss. Damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost earnings, past and future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage costs
  • Loss of companionship


When you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one, it’s difficult enough to make the kinds of routine decisions that once came easily to you. When considering a wrongful death case, you should not make any decisions without competent and experienced legal counsel, especially because there is a two-year statute of limitations (time limit) in most wrongful death cases. You may also be dealing with an insurance company pressuring you to settle quickly and which is not focused on addressing your needs and interests.
