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.
