We’re thankful that he’s back to resume work with his clients—but more than that—we’re thankful that he’s back to brighten our office with his quick wit and knowledge of family law. - John Powell III

Pearland, TX (PRWEB) January 15, 2014

The Powell Law Firm announces the return of one of their associates, James Hughes, who was recently hospitalized due to a life-threatening illness. Much relieved to have him back on the job, Hughes’ associates are celebrating his recovery and look forward to continuing the work they do with his participation.

“We were all incredibly worried,” says John Powell, one of Hughes’ partners at the Powell Law Firm. “Having a friend and co-worker suffer an unexpected and life-threatening medical condition always helps to put priorities in the right order for any business. We’re thankful that he’s back to resume work with his clients—but more than that—we’re thankful that he’s back to brighten our office with his quick wit and knowledge of family law. His presence in the office makes so much difference in our day-to-day operations.”

Having graduated from the Mississippi College School of Law in 2008, Hughes passed the Mississippi Bar shortly thereafter. Following graduation, he was then briefly called back to active duty in the Army. After fulfilling his obligations with the military, Hughes moved with his family to the Houston area, where they still reside today.

Married and with two daughters, Hughes primarily works in the area of family law but he also handles cases involving small business litigation, and will and estate law. He also takes criminal defense cases, working with many cases to which he is appointed in Brazoria County. His contributions to the Powell Law Firm have been significant, and 90% of his practice is devoted to litigation.

The attorneys of Powell Law Firm have a combined 60 years of experience in successfully resolving family law and personal injury cases. Along with James Hughes, the firm consists of the legal expertise of John Powell III and John S. Powell, and focuses on the legal areas of: divorce, alimony and spousal maintenance, division of assets, high-asset divorce, division of retirement and investments, business owner and business partner divorces, military divorce and guided uncontested divorce.
