    Dyke Huish taught me what it means to be a defense attorney. He taught me to believe in my client and that against all odds if you can tell a client’s story, you can be successful. Dyke has the most charisma of any trial attorney I have ever had the pleasure of watching. His ability to tell a story and have a jury listen is unique. By the time he is done, the client is no longer a defendant but a person whose liberty is at stake. Juries trust him because his sincerity is palpable. Not only will he defend his clients vigorously but he will do everything in his power to help improve their lives and prevent reentry into the criminal justice system. I have referred several people to Dyke and each one has been extremely satisfied with the care they received. This is the first and last person who I would call if I ever needed representation.
