Theodore G. Hughes


Solving your problems is what I find most rewarding. Understanding your needs, recognizing the legal risks you face, analyzing various paths to best minimize those risks, and consistently delivering favorable outcomes that exceed your expectations is not achieved by luck but instead, determination, hard work, using all available resources, and exploring multiple points of view. Thank you to my clients and peers for recognizing my tireless commitment to their goals, resulting in The National Black Lawyers honoring me as Top 40 under 40. I will not take lightly the trust you place in me if I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to partner with you on your needs.”
