A Neighborhood Gem
Christopher is hands down the best attorney I've ever met. To think, it was actually a pleasure to meet an attorney! Honesty and Integrity are the best adjectives to describe his practice. His dedication to his clients and their interests is unparalleled. you may not always like what he has to tell you, but he'll always tell you the truth. Sadly, that seems to be a rare gem in the legal field nowadays.

Fantastic Work in Family Law Case - Highly Recommend
I was referred to Chris by an attorney I previously worked with for an unrelated case. I called Chris after being served an ex-parte order to appear in court in less than 24 hours. He went over my case with me over the phone, and called me back at 8 o'clock at night to see if I was going to need his counsel. I desperately needed someone, but with such short notice, I couldn't come up with the full retainer. Chris told me that he didn't want me to face this alone, and worked out a plan for my retainer. All while he could have been home with his own family. He was in court the next morning at 8 am. I couldn't believe it. I cried the night before, because I didn't think people like this existed. He went above and beyond what most attorneys would do for a client. He was able to get the ridiculous request from the petitioner knocked down, and a full agreement signed within a month. Mr. Hoglin is nothing less than a warrior in court. He knew what he was talking about, very knowledgeable, sincere, and a solid attorney. I cannot thank him enough for the work he did for me, and my family. I highly recommend him, and will definitely use him in the future if needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

An Attorney That Cares
After numerous hours of consultations and research, I stumbled upon an advertisement detailing Mr. Hoglin's services. I contacted him and explained the situation my father was going through. He agreed to visit him in jail at no cost. My family met with him at his office to discuss a possible payment plan. He was very understanding and offered us a very flexible payment plan. He provided his services at only a fraction of what other attorneys charge. As soon as Mr. Hoglin took over the case, he got down to business. He immediately began negotiating with the DA relentlessly. He is aggressive in defending and protecting the rights of his clients. After knowing the plea bargain that the public defendant had initially offered, Mr. Hoglin took over the case midway through and obtained an outcome that was very favorable. As a previous reviewer stated, he is very down-to-earth individual. He does not see himself above anyone else and he genuinely cares about his clients. He stays on top of everything and provides detailed information as the case moves along. He was readily available whenever we had any type of question. We are extremely happy that Mr. Hoglin was our attorney and there is no way to demonstrate our gratitude. Although I hope that nobody experiences this kind of situation again, I would definitely recommend Christopher Hoglin for the job to anyone in a similar scenario. We are one big happy family now and it is all thanks to Mr. Hoglin.

Family Attorney | Feb 07
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Christopher L. Hoglin is an exceptionally well respected attorney in the Los Angeles Family Law community. He can regularly be seen in court representing clients on a variety of family law related issues. He understands the legal climate and the types of issues Judge's look at to determine the outcome of their case. I have worked with Chris on many cases and have always felt that he knows what he is doing and understands his clients cases without having to review notes or ask his client's questions. He puts in the extra effort that it takes that separates the average from the exceptional. He is an exceptional family law attorney and his client's are lucky to have him and his staff on their side."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Chris is a rare attorney these days; he works unbelievably hard for his clients, doesn't miss a single detail, and consistently gets results. When family law issues materialize in my law practice, I trust no one other than Chris to guide me through the Family Code. Every time, he is right on the money. Chris is always right because he has taken the time (thousands of hours), unlike most, to master his area of law, no matter how minute. I would hire Chris personally; that is how much I trust his skill set. He also happens to be an amazing husband and father. I unequivocally endorse Chris."
