“My time as a state attorney at the beginning of my career provided an irreplaceable foundation of trial skills and everyday courtroom procedures. It’s where I gained invaluable insight into the inner workings of a courthouse—how dockets are run and how to work closely with judges, their judicial assistants and the clerk’s office to manage large volumes of cases on a day-to-day basis. This experience framed and developed my ability to address cases which are media sensitive and to protect my clients under those unique circumstances.”

Mr. Himschoot considers his greatest professional accomplishment to be a culmination of all of his trial victories, including the collection of all attorney’s fees and costs from opposing parties on multiple cases.
