Charles A. Huffman, III (Ret.) is a senior partner at Huffman & Huffman Brothers-in-Law, PLLC and has over 50 years of experience as a practicing attorney. When Charlie is not representing clients in court, he enjoys boating, skiing, and riding his motorcycle. He resides in Newport News with his wife and is the proud father of two children, who live and work in the Tidewater area.
Charlie is the co-owner of Huffman & Huffman, with our main office in Newport News and satellite offices in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. He serves clients across Virginia.
Charlie is driven to help people who have been injured through no fault of their own. This can be very complex in dealing with the insurance company, insurance coverage, health insurance benefits, reimbursement of health insurance, investigating the accident, evaluating the value of a case, and negotiating fair settlements.
We have settled cases for our clients for millions of dollars. Below are several examples:
Although the cases listed above were larger verdicts/settlements, we are proud to serve our clients in any claim, large or small. We are thankful that any client has put their faith in us to obtain financial compensation for their injury.
Charlie has seen insurance companies try to take advantage of individuals who attempt to deal with these large corporations on their own, and it is our mission to help and guide the injured through the legal system where providers may try to deny, stall, and offer only minimum compensation. The average injured person dealing with the insurance companies and adjusters is no match for these experienced individuals who are well-versed in insurance law.
Charlie comes from a large family and is one of five children. He is a lifelong resident of the Peninsula. He enjoys sporting activities such as golf, sailing, fishing, and boating on the Chesapeake Bay.
Charlie and his wife, Gay, live in Newport News. They have two children, one daughter who lives in Newport News, and one son who lives in Virginia Beach. Charlie and Gay are also proud grandparents.
If you have been injured, you should retain an attorney right away. The insurance company will try to get to you before you get to us. Statements you make to the insurance company may be used against you and may also result in a denial of your claim.
If you think the insurance company is on your side, is a good neighbor, or that you’re in good hands, you may be in for a surprise. If you deal directly with the other party’s insurance company, you will see very quickly that they are not your friend or neighbor based on what they offer, if anything. There are also other areas of recovery in accident cases to consider, besides the defendant’s policy, health benefits, and Med Pay benefits.
In summary, you need an experienced attorney from day one to ensure your rights are protected and that you get the settlement to which you are entitled.
