GGBA: Why did you decide to create your business?
Huff: Founding Huff Legal was a result of recognizing the need for skilled and compassionate legal services (including: criminal defense, civil litigation, contested probate, and cryptocurrency litigation) in the Bay Area. Our passion for ensuring the protection of individual rights and liberties, coupled with our legal expertise, motivated us to establish a law firm that could make a meaningful difference in people’s lives when they are facing challenging legal circumstances.
GGBA: Who are some of your role models, and especially those who helped to influence your business?
Huff: I have great admiration for prominent legal minds like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who devoted her career to advocating for equality and justice. Attorney John Burris also comes to mind. Additionally, attorneys within the GGBA Community have been influential in shaping our business. Their dedication to their clients and the local community has served as an inspiration and encouraged us to contribute positively to Bay Area’s legal landscape.
GGBA: Why did you decide to join the GGBA, and how long have you been a member?
Huff: As an openly transgender man of color and Managing Attorney of Huff Legal, PC, I decided to join the GGBA because of its reputation as a supportive and inclusive community that fosters networking and professional growth. We have been proud members of the GGBA for the past two years and have greatly appreciated the camaraderie and resources that the organization offers.

GGBA: What other advice would you give to someone who is thinking of starting their own business?
Huff: Starting your own business is both exciting and challenging.

Stay resilient, adapt to changing circumstances, and always prioritize your clients’ needs to build a reputation based on trust and reliability.
GGBA: Is there anything else that you would like to share?
