Nathan Hochman is an experienced prosecutor, lawyer, and civic leader. After graduating from Brown University and earning his law degree from Stanford Law School, Hochman clerked for a US District Court Judge in Los Angeles before becoming an Assistant US Attorney for the Central District of California. As a prosecutor, Hochman brought justice to drug lords, corrupt government officials, tax evaders, and violent gang members. In 2008, Hochman was appointed by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the US Senate as US Assistant Attorney General overseeing the Department of Justice’s Tax Division. Nathan has served his community on numerous charitable boards and as a member and President of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission.
Hochman launched his campaign for Attorney General at the end of April and has since raised nearly a million dollars—establishing himself as the leading Republican challenger to Gavin Newsom appointed Attorney General Rob Bonta in the 2022 election.
