Firm Philosophy

The Law Office of Joanna C. Huchting was founded after more than a decade of big-firm litigation practice in California. Joanna’s decision to leave her practice as a litigation partner with Cox, Castle & Nicholson after ten years there was borne out of what she saw to be the need for exceptional legal service at cost-effective rates. By creating her own practice, Joanna is able to provide her clients with the individualized, hands-on attention that many smaller firms offer, while continuing vigorously to represent her clients in a manner often associated with larger firms.
