Our Firm

What We Can Do For You


We can handle a broad range of legal matters. We are truly able to provide effective legal representation in every major area of our practice. We can address all of your civil litigation needs.

Better coverage.

No lawyer can be available all the time, so a benefit of our law firm is having other lawyers on call in case one of us is busy on other legal matters.

Pooling knowledge and experience.

It is always helpful on a complicated legal matter to be able to talk to other lawyers to consult on legal strategies. Our law firm is a great environment in which to do this.


Hughes Lawyers has developed a strong reputation in the community over the last 35 plus years practicing in the state of Missouri and Illinois. Because we have this reputation, this can lend credibility to our defense of your case when communicating with judges and opposing counsel.
