Personal Injury

Marty Hoffman is in the very top tier of trial lawyers in South Florida and the Keys. He brings the necessary tenacity to his work as a litigator, but he blends that skill with thoughtfulness, the highest standards of integrity, and the wisdom acquired over years of experience fighting for people who often have no other possibility of getting help in the legal system. A client is lucky to have Marty accept her case. Writing as a colleague, I don’t hesitate to say I have the highest respect for him and the high caliber of his work.

– John M.

“Aggressive attorneys who take a personal interest in each case.”

I have nothing but praise for Hoffman, Larin & Agnetti. John Agnetti and his staff understood what I was going through, they relieved the stress and carefully explained every step of the process. They were thoughtful, listened, and acted in every possible way to get the best results for my case.

“I’ve never had an attorney stay in touch the way he has”

I first met Marty Hoffman and John Agnetti around 1990. I have been represented on more than a couple of occasions by both Marty and John. Both attorneys have been successful every time they signed on a case for not only me, but also my wife and my son, all on separate occasions and individual cases. I have referred a few friends since the first time they represented me and they were successful on every case I referred them. They have a 100% track record with me and everyone I’ve referred. As far as accessibility to them, I received a call from Marty at 11pm on a Friday night on his way to the airport as a hurricane was bearing down on South Florida so he was able to catch up with me and I could get him up to speed on how things had gone earlier in the day. He also stayed in contact with me while out of town. I’ve never had an attorney stay in touch the way he has. He’s given me the option of getting a case settled quickly in a time of financial need and did better than I expected in a short time frame. They have always given me good advice and the best outcome that no one else could surpass. Marty and John, thank you for all the great outcomes for the last 30 years.

Social Security

“Fast, reliable, friendly and trustworthy!”

Let me start by saying Mr. Martin Hoffman knows his stuff! Obtaining disability benefits is a long and drawn out process, but Mr. Hoffman’s approach to paperwork and his reliability makes it so much less painful. He takes the time to guide you step by step through the process and he’s always there if you have any questions. He also speaks on your behalf from start to finish, whereas other attorneys will leave you to deal with what feels like endless phone calls from Social Security. Not Mr. Hoffman! I barely had to speak to anyone on the phone myself, as he and his staff did all of that for me. Being disabled, this was a huge burden off my back. He made the entire process as stress-free as possible and I would 100% recommend him to anyone who needs Social Security benefits in a timely manner. He WILL fight for you! My case was finished in 13 months. He’s also funny and kind, so meetings at his office are pleasant and not as much of a chore! Thank you for everything Mr. Hoffman!

– Molly

“I finally felt safe as I knew that I was in trusted hands.”

Let me start by saying that Martin Hoffman and his office came to me by referral from a previous client. Her and her mother’s positive experiences led me originally to choose Mr. Martin Hoffman, but my personal experiences have led me to let everyone know that there is no one else I would rather have represent me! After over 6 years of trying to deal with my own Social Security Disability case, I finally found the answer when I met Mr. Martin Hoffman, Marcy and their entire law office. When I approached him and his office with my complex case, as the district office had previously lost my case and my health issues are complicated to grasp, they welcomed me as if I was with family. I finally felt safe as I knew that I was in trusted hands. The team spent multiple hours on organization and preparing my case, way beyond my expectations. Marcy did everything to make sure that we had all of the information collected and prepared. Her consistent communication between all of the parties was exceptional. Martin Hoffman explained to me all of the facts, in detail, so that I understood exactly what would happen with my case and how to approach it. Almost immediately, he knew that my case was winnable and helped me to feel more confident in that reality. To be very honest, my case was very complex as there were time constraints, previous errors that occurred and the complex nature of my condition; however, Martin Hoffman made sure that by the hearing date that I was completely prepared. He met with me several time to go over the processes involved and made sure that I was ready. On the day of the trial, his effective case preparations and arguments won the case almost immediately. He, Marcy and the whole office were as excited for me as I was for myself! There is no one else I would want to have had represent me. I am already in the process of using Martin Hoffman again for other legal matters! If you are wondering about who you should have represent you, then your search is over. Martin Hoffman’s office is the best place to go for all of your legal needs. They treat you like family, while helping you to resolve deeply complex legal issues! Thank you again!

“This is the guy you want on your side!”

When I got behind on my mortgage, I contacted my mortgage company because I knew I was in trouble, and I naively thought they were going to work with me. They were, however, completely uninterested in helping me. After I made multiple attempts to contact them, they began the foreclosure process against me. When I started receiving legal notices, I contacted Mr. Hoffman. He very clearly explained my options and what would happen if we proceeded with each option. After some discussion, I told him what I wanted to happen. He made sure that was exactly what did happen. He kept me informed and advised me each step of the way, always making my options clear. I only made one court appearance and watched him work. He is incredibly knowledgeable and skillful. I would not want to be on the other side of the courtroom from him! In the end, I walked away from the house and owed nothing, which is what I wanted to happen. Mr. Hoffman helped me hold the line against the ruthless and marginally legal practices of my mortgage holder. Do not trust any mortgage company that starts proceedings again you. They are not trying to help you, no matter what they say. I trusted Martin Hoffman. It is the best choice I could have made! Thank you, Mr. Hoffman for leading me through this scary process and protecting my interests.

“Helped keep me in my house”

I was getting very threatening letters from my bank about my mortgage saying that they were going to foreclose on my house. I heard Mr Hoffman on the radio and decided to give him a call. When we spoke, he knew before I was done what was going on and told me he could help. Now, one year later, I am still in my house, I didn’t have to pay the bank the fees they said I would, and my mortgage payment is lower. I don’t know what I would have done without them!

– Mary

“Powerful representation, prompt and efficient action lead to success”

Martin Hoffman, from the office of Hoffman, Larin & Agnetti, P.A., your powerful representation in my case, along with prompt and efficient action from your office staff, succeeded in obtaining a foreclosure dismissal while securing an appropriate loan modification with the financial institution in question. Thank you for your outstanding performance. Mr. Hoffman, your credibility is scores beyond impressive.

“Professional law firm with highly professional staff”

I come from a family of lawyers and through trial and error, including a 10 years divorce, which ended because of this law firm, I recognize quality. This is a professional law firm with highly professional staff. I would absolutely recommend this establishment

– Michael R.

“I could not have asked for a better outcome and I owe all of that to John”

From the initial consultation with Mr. Martin Hoffman, I knew I was in good hands. My attorney was Mr. John Agnetti because it was a divorce case. John is a compassionate and highly competent attorney. He and his staff were very responsive, not just to me as the client, but also to the court with filings. I am a paralegal; I KNOW lawyers. Early on in the case, I was so impressed with John that I asked his office for business cards so I could give them to our clients, or anyone, in need of a family law referral. The divorce took a little over two years, but I could not have asked for a better outcome and I owe all of that to John. I hope I never have to go through another divorce, but if I do, I’m calling John.

– J.

Miscellaneous Law

“He always listens to his clients and has their best as his priority.”

I have known Mr. Hoffman for many years. We have been adversaries and have worked together. He is extremely competent across many areas of the law and practices with character and integrity that is commendable. If I had a legal issue requiring me to hire counsel, I would not hesitate to hire Martin. He always listens to his clients and has their best as his priority.

Past Results

Hoffman, Larin & Agnetti, P.A. is proud to serve our clients with some of the best legal services in South Florida. Below are a select few testimonials from satisfied clients. For further information on personal injury verdicts & settlements, please see our Past Results page.

Settlement: $1,100,000.00


Our client was a 35 year-old automobile mechanic who, as a pedestrian, was struck by a vehicle that was backing up at a slow speed. The injuries included a torn ligament in one knee, which was repaired by arthroscopic surgery and a herniated disc in his lower back, which was treated non-surgically. As a result of his injuries, our client claimed that he would be unable to return to past work and would suffer a significant reduction in salary working in a field other than automobile repair.

At trial, in addition to medical testimony, we retained an economist to testify as to future wage loss. These efforts led to a settlement of $1,100,000.00.

Settlement: $1,000,000.00


Our client was injured when his vehicle was struck by a large semi-truck, which made an illegal left turn without its top lights on. The client was driving home from a church meeting to take care of his ill wife who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Prior to the accident, he worked as an activities director for a nursing home. As a result of the accident the client suffered numerous serious injuries, underwent at least 10 operations, incurred medical bills of over $200,000 and suffered a loss of income as well.

The case was settled immediately after a law suit was filed against the trucking company for the full $1,000,000.00 liability insurance limit.

Settlement: $950,000.00


Our client was injured by a drunk driver who was traveling in the wrong direction on a section of highway that was under construction. The drunk driver had no insurance coverage, and our client underwent multiple surgeries for her injuries. The firm sued the company that placed the barricades on the roadway, the construction company, and engineers who designed and controlled the construction. Our theory of the case was that the roadwork did not meet safety standards and was confusing to drivers using the roadway.

Roadway experts, human factors experts and an economist were retained to render opinions in the case, and it was settled for $950,000.00.

Settlement: $950,000.00


Our client was a passenger in a car hit head on by another driver in a construction zone on a busy Miami street. Our client was rendered paralyzed by the accident. The other driver had been drinking and negligently crossed over onto the wrong side of the road. Shortly after the accident, the other driver who was uninsured fled the country and was never located.

Our firm filed suit against the construction company, the barricade company, the engineers, the County and the State Department of Transportation. The defendants denied any responsibility for the accident and blamed the drunk driver for the client’s injuries. After obtaining many construction documents and taking many depositions of construction personnel, we were successful in proving that the defendants failed to properly maintain traffic in the construction zone by using sufficient barricades and striping on the roadway.

The defendants settled before trial for $950,000.00.

Settlement: $950,000.00


Our client was hit by another vehicle head on; the driver of the other vehicle only had $10,000 of insurance coverage. Our client had injuries to his leg, hip and chest. The other driver had been drinking and negligently crossed over onto the wrong side of the road.

Our firm filed suit against our client’s insurance company, and the defendants settled before trial for $950,000.00.

Settlement: $3,600,000



Our client was a 20 year-old camp counselor earning $60/week when he volunteered to perform in the camp’s end of the year circus. While practicing on a trampoline after camp hours, he struck his head and suffered quadraparesis. His municipal employer denied the claim, alleging that the incident happened outside the course of his employment.

While HLA Law handled the case, a settlement was reached for a total anticipated payout of $3,600,000.00.

Settlement: $1,000,000.00


Our client went to a service station at night to buy gas. The service station was located in a known high-crime area. While paying the attendant through a secured payment window, he was shot and killed in a robbery attempt. The client’s family claimed that the service station operator was negligent because it failed to provide adequate security and lighting and otherwise protect customers.

Security experts were hired by the firm to support our theory of the case, and the service station settled for $1,000,000.00.

Settlement: Over $1,000,000.00


Our client was a 55 year-old dialysis patient who had waited for several years for a donor kidney. Shortly after the transplant, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and died. Our investigation showed that the kidney was obtained from a donor who had died of brain cancer. Medical experts were retained to establish that the donor was inappropriate and that the transplant center’s process of selecting donors was faulty.

The case was settled for a figure in excess of $1,000,000.00, though the exact amount of settlement cannot be disclosed per the settlement agreement.
