Hello, my name is Taylor Hobin. It is a pleasure to be a part of Hobin & Hobin LLP, especially since I grew up in this office.
I was born and raised in Antioch, California. My mother, Debbie Hobin, has been an educator in the community for my entire life. In addition, she founded two Antioch charter schools. These schools educate the children that will be the source of change in our community in the years to come. My father, Richard Hobin, is the attorney who founded Hobin & Hobin LLP in 1978.
As a kid, I remember telling people that I never wanted to be an attorney. This may seem odd coming from a person who is an attorney today. However, I think it is a good reflection of what society tells us about attorneys. We hear that attorneys are greedy people who do not care about their clients or their community. As a young person, I began to accept what society tells us all about attorneys. However, after spending my summers working in the Hobin & Hobin LLP office, I saw a very different type of law practice. I saw a law practice filled with compassion and hardworking people who place their client’s interests above their own. I became an attorney and came to work here for that reason.
In many ways you will find Hobin & Hobin LLP to be an old-fashioned firm. You can always talk to a real person on the phone and our doors are open if you would like to walk-in to set up an appointment. We put an emphasis on giving back to the community in which we live and we go above and beyond for our clients. I find great satisfaction in keeping these traditions alive which have kept us in business and prosperous since 1977.
I have come to believe that an attorney should provide practical legal advice with an eye toward resolving disputes so that people can move on with their lives. In addition, I believe that an attorney must always be prepared and able to take a case to trial if resolution of the matter is not possible.
I am an alumni of De La Salle High School and The University of San Francisco. I went to law school at The University of California Hastings College of the Law. At school, I was an editor of the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly and won awards in legal writing as well as in moot court. My legal writing has been published and can be viewed using the following citation, “Wireless Internet Searches: How the Fourth Amendment Applies to Police Searches of Information Accessed over A Wireless Internet Connection”, 41 Hastings Const. L.Q. 681 (2014). I have also been published on the subject of California’s Juvenile Justice System, and my article entitled, “Criminal” can be accessed here if you are interested.
I have an amazing wife. She is a Speech Language Pathologist for the Brentwood Union School District. She is always upbeat, fiercely intelligent, and hardworking. She is the glue that holds our family together. Our family grew in March of 2015 when we welcomed our first son, Turner Joseph Hobin.
My main pastime away from the law is golf. I played golf in high school and in college. At De La Salle, my high school team won a state championship. In college, I played golf for the University of San Francisco and was named a GCAA All American-Scholar Athlete. I still compete in state and national golf events.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I hope to see you in the office.
