I needed a North Dakota attorney to file a deed transfering property to my daughter, we both live out of state. Damian was highly recommended so I chose him. He was excellent in his advice and his work. Very professional.

Extremely Good at what he does
Damian took care of setting up my Life Estate. He explained the best options and also gave the reasons they are the best, as well as other options that would not be in my best interest. Damian is very talented, experienced and I recommend him for your family law needs.

Peace of mind
I've obsessed for some time about getting some legal documents drawn up. I no longer need to do that. I have 'peace of mind' since Damian listened attentively and was 'spot on' in his language with the interpretation of my wishes. I am very grateful for having been referred to him by another attorney.

Estate and Wills
Mr. Huettl has helped me so much since the sudden passing of my husband. He has helped with the transfer of vehicle titles, the writing of my wills, the power of attorney paperwork and some beneficiary advice. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Highly recommended!!!
I highly recommend Larson Latham Huettl Attorneys!!! After the loss of my husband and a fairly young age I was very lost and confused in what direction I needed to go. Damian Huettl and his Legal Assistant were amazing and extremely knowledgeable and sincerely compassionate. I am extremely satisfied with the guidance I was given.

Easement Settlement
Damian reached a favorable settlement for us in a road easement lawsuit. He was very professional and clear in all communications with us and to the attorney representing the other party. We are very confident that all the legal issues were addressed and handled in a timely manner. He was available for questions we had and informed us of any issues in our case. I would highly recommend Damian as an excellent attorney.
