President Bush is nominating Nathan J. Hochman, of California, to be Assistant Attorney General (Tax Division) at the Department of Justice.

Mr. Hochman currently serves as a principal of Hochman, Salkin, Rettig, Toscher & Perez, P.C. Prior to this, he served as Assistant United States Attorney for the Central District of California.

Earlier in his career, he worked as a law clerk for U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson. Hochman received his bachelor's degree from Brown University and his JD from Stanford Law School.

Richard Morrison has been acting head of the division since his predecessor, Eileen O'Connor, left for a job at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman. Morrison has been nominated to become a judge of the U.S. Tax Court for a 15-year term, replacing Carolyn Miller Parr, whose term has expired.
