Kevin Hochhalter, Principal Attorney

Appeals are my passion. As a lawyer, there is nothing more thrilling to me than standing before the highest judges to explain to them why the law should favor my client.

If your case is headed toward appeal, I would be honored to stand for you.


I have handled over 80 appeals in Washington’s appellate courts, with a solid record of success. After seven years of civil litigation practice, I formed Olympic Appeals PLLC in 2017 to focus entirely on appeals, helping trial attorneys and their clients by providing quality representation and peace of mind during an appeal.


I graduated fifth in my class at the University of Iowa College of Law in 2010. I have won awards for my legal research and writing. I continuously work to improve these skills and present cases with focus and clarity. I was selected to the Super Lawyers Washington Rising Stars list in appellate law in 2018-2019.


Appellate Services

Olympic Appeals is available for referral, association, or consultation in civil, criminal, or family law appeals in Washington's state or federal appellate courts.

Whether you are looking to hand off the case or just get a little help, Olympic Appeals is here for you.

Focused Advocacy

I will work with you to identify the central issues that have the greatest chance of success on appeal. I work hard to present your case in a way that is easily understood, helping the judges to make a correct decision in your favor. 

Open Communication

I pledge to keep clients and their trial lawyers informed of what is going on during the appeal process. I will be open and honest with you. I will listen to your concerns and answer your questions. I want you to be satisfied with the work I do for you.


I offer multiple pricing options depending on the nature of the case and each client's budget:

  • Hourly fees

  • Flat fees

  • Monthly payments

  • Pay online

Virtual Office

Olympic Appeals does not have a permanent, public office. This allows us to keep our costs down and pass the savings along in the form of lower fees. 

At the beginning of a case, I often travel to meet new clients at their trial attorney's office or some other convenient location. After that, most of our communication can be done by phone or email.
