Wishing our Longtime Legal Assistant JULIE TAKEMOTO a Happy Retirement!
It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of our longtime legal assistant, Julie Takemoto. Julie has been a part of the Hochman Salkin family since 1981 and has helped shape the firm into what it is today. Her hard work and dedication to others is a reflection of the culture and success of the firm.
Julie began her career with us 38 years ago, as a legal assistant to the legendary founding member, Bruce I. Hochman. In 2001, after Mr. Hochman’s passing, she went on to work alongside Nathan J. Hochman, Former Assistant Attorney General for the Tax Division, Charles P. Rettig, who recently left the firm to become the 49th Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, and most recently Robert S. Horwitz, former Chair of the Taxation Section of the State Bar of California and Principal of the firm. Julie has been an integral part of the firm. Her commitment and tireless contributions will always be valued and remembered.
A legal assistant’s role has evolved over the years, and Julie has shared memories and stories of what her earlier days looked like with carbon copies, typewriters, shorthand notes, and lots of dictation. Technology has changed and improved efficiency, but legal assistants will continue to be critical to the successful operation of a law firm. Julie has always contributed to the high standards for the services we render to all of our clients. Julie’s retirement marks the end of an era for all of us and the beginning of a new journey for Julie.
From all of us at Hochman Salkin Toscher Perez P.C. – we wish Julie the very best in her future endeavors. Retirement will offer many new opportunities which we know she will embrace, as she did in her work at the firm. We will miss her.
