Highly Recommended
I got into a bit of trouble with the law this last fall. Hugh helped me remedy things and everything was resolved quickly, without problems. He is an intelligent, knowledgeable lawyer and a great person. He made me feel comfortable handling my responsibilities and broke everything down into small steps so it didn't feel overwhelming. He was quick to return my calls and I never felt left in the dark, he was there by my side throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Mr. Duvall.

An Honest Attorney Worth Hiring
Hugh was referred to me by quit a few people, and for good reason. I've worked with a couple attorney's in the past and had never been treated the way Hugh treated myself and my family. He was straight forward,honest and extremely good at his job. He kept me informed and educated me through a very complicated and tough case, which he won! I have referred a few other people with great results and feed back from them as well. Hugh takes the scepticism and fear out of hiring attorney. He's a geat Lawyer and an even better person.

Pragmatic and Highly Recommended
I was referred to Hugh by a former prosecutor as well as a former judge, as one of the best in the business. Hugh was clear in expectations and open in providing perspective. His experience and knowledge eased the process and he was nimble as the case evolved. Hugh kept me up to speed and did everything within his purview to get the desired result. In the end Hugh worked with me on every level and exceeded my expectations in all regards.

Hugh is absolutely first rate. Always keeps you informed and is frank when he needs to be. No hype or unfulfilled promises here! Knowledge of the law that is not to be beaten. He helped me get the best possible result in my case and left all important decisions to me after reviewing all options and offering his judgement as to outcomes with each approach.

Charges dismissed!
Hugh Duvall came highly recommended by another law firm that had a schedule conflict and could not take my case right away. Hugh was available and we met during an initial consultation. Hugh was compassionate and non-judgmental while I got to explain my side of what really happened. He told me my options and explained the process and what to expect. Using private investigators, Hugh was able to put together crucial details that supported what actually happened that discredited the allegations. Fortunately, my case never went to trial. After providing discovery to the district attorney my charges were dismissed. I would recommend Hugh to anyone that needs an aggressive defense.

Excelence
Mr. Duvall was very professional yet came across in a warm caring manner. He took our very sensitive case on short notice and with little preparation time. He was straight forward, no bull, no false hopes, just the facts but in a way that made me and my parents feel comfortable. Mr. Duvall hit our case head on and aggressively with our best interest in mind. He made a plan and executed it to perfection. He made efficient use of his time and effort resulting in less expenses on our part. He does not beat around the bush and does not waste clients time. He is worth every penny and if I ever need help again, he will be the first person I contact.

100% Hugh Duvall for your Defense Attorney!
If it weren't for Mr. Duvall i would have most likely lost my job, and would have paid severe consequences enforced by the state. I'm very grateful for all his time, hard work, knowledge, and perseverance. In a stressful situation, Hugh made me feel comfortable and he reassured me that all his resourcefulness will pay off in the end. Sure enough Hugh concord my case. I couldn't be happier with Mr. Duvall's devotion, honesty, and wittiness. Thank you Hugh for everything, i will recommend your service to anyone!

An Honest, Pragmatic, and Hard Working Attorney!
Hugh is an amazing lawyer that I highly recommend. He convinced the DA to not file my DUI which was a welcome alternative to Diversion. During my searches I talked to three lawyers before deciding to go with him. His reviews on Avvo got me in the door but his honesty and pragmatism are what won me over. He was very friendly and welcoming when I met him and kept me informed when he had new information to share. Thanks for all your hard work Hugh!

Hugh reviewed my case with me and gave me several options to pick from. I was under no pressure to choose him as my lawyer, but I did choose him. I was very satisfied with all aspects of his work. I would recommend him to any one.

Out of State DUI
I endorse this lawyer. His complete and clear understanding of the law and court system and ability to predict the effects tomorrow’s decisions make on today is great. Mr. Duvall was extremely efficient and knowledgeable regarding my case as I lived out of state and time was of the essences. Moreover, Mr. Duvall was straight forward regarding the possible outcomes of my case and was willing to answer any all questions I had regarding the legal process of my case. He was insightful and left me feeling comfort with my legal experience. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case as I never had to appear in court. I support Mr. Duvall.

Informative, Possitive, Extremely Knowledgeable
Mr. Duvall listened to what I had to say. He heard and read all the facts and knew he could help me. He was very respectful. He was encouraging and stood behind me 100%. After our first meeting he got in touch with me the very next day. With his guidance I felt secure that my case would be reversed and it was. I have recommended him to others.
