Larry Hoddick has been in practice in California since 2005. Mr. Hoddick brings a unique background to the practice of consumer protection law for plaintiff consumers. By working as a sales representative, sales manager, finance manager, and finance director of some of the largest and most successful auto dealerships in Southern California, prior to attending law school, Mr. Hoddick was able to gain valuable insight into the industry at the center of all California Lemon Law and Auto Dealership Fraud disputes. As a former industry insider, Mr. Hoddick is a formidable opponent to the defendants and their attorneys.
While finishing law school and preparing for the California Bar Exam, Mr. Hoddick obtained early litigation experience as a legal assistant at the firm of Caronna & Johnson, LLP in Rancho Mirage, California. After passing the California Bar Exam on the first attempt, Mr. Hoddick was made a full partner of the firm within a year. While with the firm, Mr. Hoddick and the managing partner developed a highly successful consumer protection department, successfully resolving over 2,000 lemon law and auto dealer fraud cases for clients over a span of seven years.
In May of 2011, Mr. Hoddick decided he could best serve his clients by opening his own office for the practice of law in cases dealing not only with California Lemon Law and Auto Dealer Fraud, but also with victims of personal injury, wrongful death, nursing home negligence, premises liability, wrongful termination, disability discrimination, sexual harassment, harassment, wage disputes, wage and hour class action for unpaid overtime, and missed meal and rest breaks, among other cases.

Mr. Hoddick attended both Southwestern University School of Law, and Concord Law School, receiving his law degree and graduating with Honors, and he is admitted to practice law in both State and Federal Courts in California.
