Waco Attorneys

At Hutson & Harris, where we practice diverse areas of law for our valued clients, quality is never sacrificed. At first glance, we may appear to be “unusual” attorneys but that is what we believe makes our firm special. Our team consists of people just like yourself to whom everyone can relate, who put genuine care for clients into practice, who come from humble beginnings like so many in the surrounding community, and who take every individual’s case personally. Our Waco lawyers consider that the most important quality to have in an attorney is actual care for your case.

At Hutson & Harris, we love what we do and enjoy doing it. Our bottom line is that our practice is based on helping others. That means we don’t get jaded by the legal process.

In criminal cases, no reason exists to hide your options from you and we never will. In personal injury cases, our most valuable asset in representing you is knowing how insurance companies defend themselves. In family law cases, we will stand by your side as we help you navigate deeply personal and emotional issues.
