About HMBR

Founded in 1993 by several attorneys previously affiliated with a large Chicago law firm, Hogan Marren Babbo & Rose, Ltd. has attracted a highly qualified group of attorneys who possess a broad range of proven expertise.

As a smaller law firm, we value excellence over size, and our focus is on practice areas in which we have developed real expertise and can add singular value. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer clients solutions to strategic issues and problems as well as to timely respond to inquiries regarding regulatory and other legal questions.

Our attorneys also understand the need to combine aggressive representation with rigorous cost controls. All of our staff shares a strong commitment to professionalism, integrity, efficiency and results. The combination of these characteristics gives HMBR a unique position in the marketplace and enables the firm to deliver a consistently high level of quality in serving clients.



It is with great sadness and a profound sense of loss that we share the news of the death of Carol C. Hogan, one of the firm’s founding partners. Carol died peacefully on September 30th at her home in Indiana.

Carol has been an invaluable member of the HMBR family since the firm began in 1993.  A brilliant attorney, she was known as an expert in regulatory matters, issues involving tax exemption, Stark, Medicare and Medicaid fraud laws. Carol participated in the development of innovative transactions designed to improve health care delivery and quality which propelled the firm into national recognition for its expertise in hospital mergers, joint ventures, integrated care delivery system formation, and the transformation of managed care.

She will be missed beyond measure, and remembered fondly for her larger-than-life personality, quick wit, extraordinary skill as a storyteller and exuberant love of dancing.

Carol was the beloved wife of Ed Hogan. She is also survived by her brother, John Collins (Jackie), and many, many family members and friends.
