Whitney Hicks has the unique qualities of a fierce civil prosecutor after a near decade of practicing law. Whitney vigorously sought justice for the children of Hays County in the most complex civil mediations, litigation, and jury trials in her capacity as an Assistant District Attorney. Protecting children from abuse, neglect, and family violence as well as offering ongoing training to clients and professionals remains a top priority for Whitney.

As a founding member of the firm, Whitney's calculated and persistent method of moving her cases forward has been refined over the years. She has the rare experience of preparing 17 civil cases for jury trial, sitting of 9 of those to verdict, and first chairing half a dozen. She has hundreds of hours of litigation experience in highly contested bench trials and hearings representing the Department of Family and Protective Services and individuals. She also has experience writing both civil and criminal appeals, representing the state in various forfeiture actions, and providing trainings to law enforcement and child protective services professionals.

Prior to working as an Assistant District Attorney, Whitney worked as an associate at a premier family law firm in Austin, Texas for two years where she gained valuable experience counseling clients, reviewing and preparing discovery, and dealing with complex issues such as business valuations and substance abuse.

Whitney values her career as a civil attorney and balances work with the demands of being a wife and mother. She understands the pressures of being a businesswoman and parent. While Whitney analyzes each unique case independently, she has the life experience to understand each case from the point of view of a parent and a business professional.

Whitney has been a true godsend! Her poise, confidence and ability to take action have provided myself and my family with immeasurable comfort during the most chaotic and tumultuous time in our lives. Her ability to be empathetic, while at the same time straight to the point is what I value the most. Custodial issues are hard enough on their own, even harder when lawyers are needed. Thankfully having Huckaby-Hicks in my corner has made the burden of conflict and dispute resolution much easier to navigate.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
