Remembering Philip Hoffman's Legacy
Phil Hoffman, 65, Attorney, Devoted Family Man and Ranger Fanatic, Dies of Coronavirus
Phil Hoffman, attorney, devoted husband and father, and the grandest Poobah to his two grandchildren, died in his home on March 31st, 2020.
When someone passes, you often hear that there are no words to describe that person. For Phil Hoffman, the words to describe him are infinite. Phil represented the very best of humanity. He was never fully dressed without a smile and a winning attitude.
Phil’s tenure at Pryor Cashman began on September 4th, 1984. He was not only an excellent lawyer, with several trial victories under his belt, but was the heart and soul of the firm. He built a strong community at the firm by sending out emails recounting the history of the firm, organizing events, maintaining records and documents relating to D-Day and the firm’s connection to the armed forces and taking time out of his day to get to know his coworkers as people. He brought a very human sensibility to Pryor Cashman that will be missed by the hundreds of people whose lives he touched.
When the workday was done, you could find Phil at a Broadway show or cheering on his beloved Rangers at MSG with his wife Eileen. Before Phil was an attorney, he was a master scoop artist at Carvel Ice Cream, where he first met Eileen. Over the past 42 years they’ve lived in four homes, raised two children, Patrick & Kerry, seen over 1,200 shows, traveled the world, and shared in the joy of being grandparents to Patrick’s two wonderful children, Sean and Maddie. Phil devoted his life to his partnership with his wife and to giving his children everything they could ever want or need to be happy and successful.
