Adolph A. Hoehling, Jr. (November 3, 1868 February 17, 1941 in Washington, D.C.) was a United States federal judge.

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Hoehling received an LL.B. from Columbian University 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 JAG 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 M. 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 oath of office to Calvin Coolidge following the death of Warren G. Harding 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. until his death.
