Hohler was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was called to the bar in 1888 at the Inner Temple, and practised on the South-Eastern Circuit. He became a Kings Counsel (KC) in 1906.
He was elected at the January 1910 general election as the MP for Chatham, unseating the town's first Labour Party MP John Jenkins, and held the seat until the 1918 general election, when he was elected instead as a Coalition Conservative for the new Gillingham division of Rochester. He was returned to the House of Commons at a further three elections before standing down at the 1929 general election, having been knighted in 1924 in the resignation honours of Stanley Baldwin.
