Summary

While many attorneys will state that they practice law throughout the State of Ohio, Attorney Hux is likely part of a much smaller amount of attorneys who have actually lived in the Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland areas. This means that Attorney Hux actually knows the people of Southwestern Ohio, Central Ohio, and Northeast Ohio, in addition to the unique challenges each region brings.

Attorney Hux’s desire to help those in need has always been a cornerstone of his identity. That desire to help people, coupled with an innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life, has led to some referring to him as “Everybody’s Favorite.” Those personality traits, along with a knack for pointing out legal issues and displaying the utmost professionalism, often lead to extremely satisfied clients who can not wait to tell their friend, family, and anyone else who will listen about “MY attorney.”

A: The easiest way would probably be to hire an employment law attorney. There's no guarantee that it would make it go faster though. Speak with an employment law attorney as soon as possible. Some will offer a free initial consultation. Attorney James J. Hux Hux Law Firm LLC
Q. I was given a settlement due to a car accident. Today when I was called in to get my check, I was told I needed to sign
A: Yes, this is normal. Attorneys usually have to deposit the funds into a trust account first to clear. The only way that would not occur would be if the insurance company provided separate checks for everyone with a lien/interest in the settlement amount. Attorney James J. Hux Hux Law Firm, LLC
Q. I gave two week’s notice at my current employer. I have 13 vacation days left and my company doesn’t have a policy on

Hux Hux Law Firm, LLC
