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.

David was very helpful during my divorce. He offered wisdom and experience during the mediation and trial. I certainly recommend him.

Six years ago I found myself newly pregnant and in a nasty divorce situation with my ex husband who is a local lawyer. I had just moved to the US so I had no local resources to ask for recommendations. I found David after reaching out to 35 attorneys/firms within the Seattle area, some of which were not interested in my case, others which were not available and others which I did not feel would advocate properly given the complexity of the circumstances.
Since my very first conversation with David, I knew he was the type of attorney I was looking for. Throughout my difficult 4 year divorce process, David remained clear in his communications, direct and yet compassionate; he showed high ethics and throughout the entire process he showed nothing less than being an honorable officer of the court.
Every time we had to deal with an issue, it was clear he did proper research with all due diligence. During a lengthy process as mine was, there is always fear of what trial will be like. Two years after I hired him, I was able to see him advocate for me as a trial attorney. He is clearly an experienced, graceful and talented advocate with vast knowledge in family law and presented my case in a superb manner.
The results at trial were all favorable to me because of David and his staff. While perhaps not apparent to the usual client, David's paralegal shares the same qualities he does making them an outstanding team to their clients.
Most importantly, when one needs an attorney it is usually because one is facing a difficult personal situation. I never felt I was working with a cold blooded attorney or careless staff. I always felt that both David and Joy believed wholeheartedly in my cause which gave me a sense of confidence in a very difficult time. Even if the results had not been favorable as they were, I knew I had chosen the right advocate for me.
Because my attorney/client relationship with David lasted so long, there were personal matters he faced through this period and despite that, it never reflected on the excellent quality of his work or his duties as an attorney.
David will always be my first choice of attorney if I need legal representation without any doubt.

When my close friend died and named me executor of her estate, I had no idea what I was doing. David walked me through everything thing that needed to happen and made sure I understood what was going on. He was so compassionate and understanding, it really helped me through an emotional time when signing documents, filing paperwork, and settling an estate was the last thing I wanted to think about. David made sure all the papers were filed, notices were posted and family members notified. The estate settled without any issues and I thank David for making such a stressful time much easier to handle.

David Huber is outstanding in his field. The combination of his integrity, authentic concern, ability to listen and sheer focus are the reasons I chose to be his client twice, and would do so again. His experience across the spectrum of law resulted in a success story in both cases. David Huber was highly recommended to me and I am pleased to do the same for others. I applaud his excellence.

Mr. Huber and his staff are very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. He is a real down-to-earth guy with a good sense of humor. He gave me both sides of the question seemingly without bias. I felt I was given expert guidance and was and am totally confident in the result.
