I have known David Huber almost 20 years, professionally and personally. He was the clear choice to represent my interests when I divorced in 2010. My then wife and I had been married over 30 years and had lived together for eight years prior to that. We had two adult children and a somewhat complicated estate of community and separate properties.
I wanted a fair, equitable and friendly outcome. Unfortunately, my former wife engaged an attorney to represent her interests that was not interested in a fair, equitable or friendly outcome.
David’s even and principled representation was able to neutralize the vitriol of opposing counsel while remaining a strong and persuasive advocate on behalf of that ‘fair and equitable’ outcome. David and I both understood that the problem was not primarily my wife … and after 18 months of discovery (of questionable good faith), David was able to persuade opposing counsel that no assets were being hidden. From that point we were able to proceed to a formal mediation process which resolved in one day.
On both a professional and personal level, David was a superb lawyer and counselor. He was always prepared. He communicated well the different perspectives of each issue before making his recommendation … and then accepted whatever decision I ultimately made. He shielded me effectively against difficult opposing counsel. He advocated for and so allowed a fair and equitable outcome to occur. Friendly even.
My highest recommendation.

Being an attorney myself, I can tell you that when you find yourself in a divorce proceeding (a.k.a. a dissolution) almost everything is on the line. That's a fact! Your finances, your belongings, your family (especially if you have kids), your mental/physical health (perhaps) and your freedom - all can be affected to some extent by the decisions of the court. In Washington, the court has AMAZING power and very few limitations on what it can do in the interest of its perception of "fairness." Therefore, when you find yourself in a divorce proceeding, the one decision that is of the utmost importance is choosing an exceptional lawyer - David is that attorney.
Back in 2011, unfortunately, my ex-wife and I decided to end our 13-year marriage. David was able to immediately assess the type of approach that would be the most effective and was able to implement that approach competently, compassionately, and expeditiously. Many lawyers don't have that many tools in their respective "tool boxes," so to speak. A lawyer who is of limited mind and ability, can be catastrophic for a client that is going through a divorce. The simple reality is that some dissolutions require a counselor or a mediator, while others may require a warrior; every situation is unique. David understands that and is able to provide what is appropriately necessary.
Because David is very experienced (i.e. a quarter of a century of law practice under his belt) and intelligent (by my standards), he was able to assess the situation and provide the appropriate strategy to yield the most optimal outcome for me. Additionally, while I was going through that very difficult time, he listened to me, provided good advice, and overall I felt that no matter what, he had my back. As an aside, David has a good sense of humor, which was very much appreciated as everything seemed to be doom and gloom at the time.
At the end of the day, if you find yourself in a divorce proceeding, you or your significant other probably made some bad decisions along the way. Don't make one more and go with any other attorney for your family law matter, make a good choice, and hire David Huber as your counselor/attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. Every client we have referred to David has been pleased with his compassion, knowledge of the law and ultimate outcome. Based on the foregoing and his impeccable reputation and character, our firm sends all of its family matter referrals only to David.

I have known Mr. Huber since 2007. He has an impeccable character, is an empathetic and intelligent listener, and has an astute and results-oriented approach to his practice. He is one of the rare family lawyers whose inclination is not to inflame the underlying passions in a dispute, and he is cost-effective. He has integrity, and he is hard-working, decent, and kind.
