NATHAN HOCHMAN FOR LA COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY

An Independent Prosecutor for Change

“As a former federal prosecutor, U.S. Assistant Attorney General, and LA Ethics Commission President, I will be ready on Day 1 to remove politics from prosecutorial decisions and restore independence, honesty, and integrity to prevent crime, protect public safety, and ensure justice is served to all LA County residents.”  —NATHAN HOCHMAN

L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey
“I am endorsing Nathan Hochman for District Attorney because I feel a lot less safe than I did four years ago. It’s time to thank and excuse the current district attorney and elect someone with a conscience. Please join me and vote for Nathan Hochman for District Attorney.”

 

— JACKIE LACEY
FORMER LOS ANGELES COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY, 2012-2020
Max Kennedy Nathan Hochman Rory Kennedy
“People should feel that the District Attorney has our back. We have lost confidence that Gascon is protecting Angelenos.  Nathan Hochman has our back.”

 

— RORY KENNEDY
“Los Angeles deserves a D.A. who cares as much about crime victims as he does about the criminals who murder and rape in cold blood. The D.A. is the only effective advocate for crime victims at parole hearings, and Gascon has abdicated his responsibility. He is simply not qualified to protect Angelenos. The people of Los Angeles County will be much better served by Nathan Hochman, a man of integrity who shares many of our father’s values.”
— MAX KENNEDY 
Maria Ramirez, Nathan Hochman, John McKinney at Rubens Bakery.
“In Nathan Hochman, we have a candidate who understands the balance required in ensuring public safety – being unyielding in the face of violent crime, while adopting a compassionate and proportional approach to non-violent offenses. His approach aligns with my belief that the role of the District Attorney is not just about enforcement but also about community empowerment and meaningful crime prevention programs. Nathan’s leadership will mark a significant shift towards a more balanced, fair and rehabilitative justice system.”

 

— JOHN MCKINNEY, LOS ANGELES COUNTY PROSECUTOR
“I wholeheartedly support Nathan Hochman for District Attorney and urge the voters of L.A. County to join me. Nathan is a person of character who will put the safety of all of our communities at the forefront of his administration. I am especially heartened by the interest he has shown in the well-being of the District Attorney’s workforce and his commitment to working with prosecutors instead of against us. I am ready to stand by Nathan as we work to improve the criminal justice system while keeping Angelenos safe from crime.”
— MARIA RAMIREZ, LOS ANGELES COUNTY PROSECUTOR 
“Nathan Hochman is one of the nation’s most experienced prosecutors and criminal justice attorneys. He has a long and distinguished record of bringing criminals to justice and fighting public corruption. The current DA is a failure in virtually all respects. I know what it takes to lead the largest local prosecution office in the United States, and Nathan Hochman is the best candidate to restore honesty, integrity, professionalism, and independence to the role of District Attorney in Los Angeles County.”

“The membership of this association strongly believes that a change in policy and direction in addressing the crime that has adversely affected our respective communities is necessary to improve the quality of life for our residents and business partners.” association President Darren Arakawa”
—ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT DARREN ARAKAWA
“I have known Nathan for over 30 years since we were federal prosecutors together, and I have been consistently impressed over the years by his dedication to the public good, intelligence, leadership, ethics, and ability to get things done. Given the alarming condition of the city that I love, and the lack of leadership at the L.A. County DA’s office, Nathan is the right person at the right time to help us revitalize Los Angeles in new and thoughtful ways and return the L.A. DA’s office to its former prominence.”
—DEBRA WONG YANG
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY (2002-2006)
“For the past 30 years, I have worked with Nathan Hochman in his roles as a federal prosecutor, a U.S. Assistant Attorney General in charge of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Tax Division, and a defense attorney. I can say unequivocally that Nathan is someone who has led by example with intelligence, integrity, and a dedication to justice. Nathan has the right experience and is the right choice. Los Angeles County needs Nathan Hochman as its next District Attorney to fix a broken office.”
—SANDRA BROWN
ACTING UNITED STATES ATTORNEY (2017-2018)
“I have known Nathan Hochman for over three decades. During that time, he has skillfully and effectively prosecuted violent criminals, narcotics traffickers and public corruption cases as an Assistant U.S. Attorney; successfully led the U.S. Department of Justice’s Tax Division as the Assistant Attorney General; and strongly defended the constitutional rights of individuals as a defense attorney. Nathan has demonstrated the highest levels of integrity, work ethic, honesty, and leadership in every role he has had. With L.A. County suffering from a District Attorney who has failed to do his job, Nathan would be the perfect choice to bring back accountability, restore our safety and security, and institute independence and integrity back into the DA’s Office. That is why I fully endorse Nathan to be the next L.A. County District Attorney.”
—TERREE BOWERS
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY (1992-1994)
“Unfortunately, the current L.A. County District Attorney has prioritized the interests of criminals over those of victims and has shifted the criminal justice system away from holding criminals accountable for their crimes to one that allows criminals to act with relative impunity. We need to elect a District Attorney who will stand up for victims and law-abiding citizens, who is genuinely concerned with public safety, and who will promote smart, effective reforms based on decades of criminal justice experience. Nathan Hochman is that independent, accomplished leader, whom I have worked with for over 3 decades since I hired him as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. He will make an exceptional District Attorney.”
—ROBERT BONNER
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY (1984-1989), DEA ADMINISTRATOR (1990-1993), UNITED STATES CUSTOMS SERVICE COMMISSIONER (2001-2003)
“Having known and worked with Nathan for over 30 years, I can unequivocally attest to his unimpeachable integrity and outstanding professionalism. Nathan is the right person to lead Los Angeles County’s law enforcement as its District Attorney, a position that requires the judgment, intellect, and commitment to justice that Nathan has consistently demonstrated throughout his accomplished career.”
—STEPHEN LARSON
FORMER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE AND ASSISTANT UNITED STATES ATTORNEY
“L.A. County’s District Attorney Office is crying out for leadership, common sense, and a commitment to public safety. Based on the over 25 years I’ve known Nathan Hochman, I can say without reservation that he has the experience, judgment and integrity to enforce the law fairly and with accountability. He’s the leader we need as our next District Attorney.”
—NICOLA HANNA
UNITED STATES ATTORNEY (2018-2021)
R. Rex Parris, Lancaster Mayor
“Our current D.A. George Gascon has proved a disaster to the safety in our community. We need to replace him in the upcoming election, and I endorse and support Nathan Hochman as the candidate who has the extensive criminal justice experience, the proven leadership experience, and the best chance to defeat Gascon. Nathan will hold criminals accountable for their actions, restore the D.A. Office’s partnership with law enforcement, and re-establish that office’s credibility and trust with victims and the public.”
—R. REX PARRIS
LANCASTER MAYOR
Former L.A. Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff
“With his over 34 years of criminal justice experience as a successful federal prosecutor, a U.S. Assistant Attorney General, an L.A. City Ethics Commission President, defense attorney, and co-founder of the L.A. Sheriff’s Foundation, I endorse Nathan Hochman to be the next L.A. County District Attorney. Nathan has a 360-degree view on how the criminal justice system works and how to fix it to bring back public safety to deal with our most pressing problems of rising crime, smash-and-grab robberies, fentanyl overdoses, and homelessness. He is the right person for the right job right now.”
