Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Hoehling received an LL.B. in 1889, and an LL.M. from Columbian University in 1890. He was in private practice in Washington, D.C. from 1891 to 1921, also serving as a Major in the Judge Advocate General's Corps during World War I.
On June 6, 1921, Hoehling was nominated by President Warren G. Harding to a seat on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia vacated by Ashley Mulgrave Gould. Hoehling was confirmed by the United States Senate on June 13, 1921, and received his commission the same day.
On August 21, 1923, Hoehling re-administered the Presidential oath of office to Calvin Coolidge following Harding's death in order to resolve possible questions over the legality of a state justice of the peace (Coolidge's father) administering the presidential oath of office.
Hoehling resigned from the court on December 31, 1927, and returned to private practice in Washington, D.C. He died in Washington on February 17, 1941, and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery, Section West, Site 155B.
