Mr. Hogan devotes significant time to assisting not-for-profit organizations with different issues.  In 2008, the Meals on Wheels Association of America honored Mr. Hogan with its ‘Friend of the Year Award’ for his assistance to MOWAA’s efforts to end senior hunger, and Mr. Hogan has served on the Boards of Directors for the Meals on Wheels Association of America Foundation, the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger, and the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs, among others. 

From 1999-2000 Mr. Hogan was Law Clerk to the Honorable Naomi Reice Buchwald, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York.  In 1994, Mr. Hogan helped to initiate the AmeriCorps*National Civilian Community Corps, where he served as a Team Leader until 1996 and received the organization’s Outstanding Leadership Award in 1995.  Prior to joining Gibson Dunn, Mr. Hogan was an associate with the New York office of Debevoise & Plimpton, LLP.

Mr. Hogan received his B.S.F.S., magna cum laude, from Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in 1994 in International Relations, Law, and Organization, Phi Beta Kappa with a European Studies Certificate.  In 1999 he received his J.D., cum laude, from New York University School of Law, where he was Editor-in-Chief of The Commentator and Research and Writing Editor for the Moot Court Board.  Mr. Hogan is also an alumnus of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, where he spent the 1992-93 academic term as a visiting student.
