Joe Huggins is an accomplished
Las Vegas trial attorney with 37 years of litigation experience. Mr. Huggins completed his undergraduate studies at Weber
State University in 1978, earning a foreign language Bachelor of Arts degree with a Minor in political science. Directly after
graduation, Mr. Huggins enrolled in the University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law, from which he graduated in
1982 with a Juris Doctor degree. Mr. Huggins was admitted to the Nevada and Utah State Bars shortly thereafter.
Since beginning his professional practice in 1982, Mr. Huggins has established himself as

helped resolve ancillary matters in addition to the legal issues for which he was hired. In truth it is merely a reflection
of Mr. Huggins’ approach to the practice of law—to serve clients with the thoughtfulness and compassion they deserve.
The core of Mr. Huggins’ professional practice includes real
estate, personal injury litigation, which includes medical malpractice, wrongful death, and products liability. His history
of proven results as a Las Vegas accidents attorney is unmistakable. But Mr. Huggins is an equally talented settlement negotiator
as he is a trial attorney. He has negotiated many multi-million dollar out of court settlements and won substantial verdicts.
He has also won many appeals at the Nevada Supreme Court, the Utah Supreme Court and the Utah Court of Appeals.
In addition to his success as
a Las Vegas accidents attorney, Mr. Huggins is an established real estate, business, and commercial law trial lawyer and appellate
advocate. He has been a panel attorney in federal court under the Criminal Justice Act for over 20 years and has tried many
high profile criminal cases to juries, where clients were exonerated.
