A business client of Mr. Huffman’s recently said: “There is a true and real difference between attorneys, and beyond that distinction, you are the best of the best.” Some of Mr. Huffman’s other clients have described him as a “bulldog” while labeling his litigation resolve.

While being aggressive is a necessary quality for a litigator, Mr. Huffman is conscientious to always convey professionalism, courtesy and be mindful of an opportunity to settle. Even opposing counsel recently commented that “the quality of [his] work is excellent.”

Mr. Huffman resolves disputes. Sometimes those disputes need a bulldog: tenaciously pursuing every legal point and...

I have been involved in the criminal justice system for over 36 years. After all that time, I still like the work of representing clients. Everyone is human, and most of us make mistakes from time to time. Even those who did nothing wrong occasionally find themselves involved in a matter that spins out of control. Relying on my 36 years’ worth of experience in doing this work, I try to remember that I cannot judge what happened when I am asked to represent someone under investigation or being prosecuted for a supposed crime. Instead, my goal at first is...

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
