The partners at HHJ started their careers as criminal defense attorneys fighting in the courtroom every day. The attorneys at HHJ quickly litigated over an impressive 100 jury trials at their prior firm and established a reputation for winning the most difficult cases. Their impressive trial results enabled them to negotiate from a position of strength which yielded better settlement agreements for their clients. Other attorneys at their office started attending their trials to learn what they were doing differently. With great trial results, the partners at HHJ wanted to share their skills and trial techniques with new law students and began teaching trial skills at California Western School of Law in San Diego, California.
