Practice Areas

Criminal Defense

The criminal court is not a place to enter blindly.  With liberty interests at stake, anyone charged with a criminal offense owes it to themselves to secure competent, compassionate and creative legal representation.  After all, the outcome can directly affect your employment, relationships and opportunties.  Better to have an attorney looking out for your long-term wellbeing than risk accepting an outcome that may compromise your future.

Divorce & Family

It is a sad fact of modern life that approximately half of all marriages will end in a divorce, and no divorce is simple.  We recognize that this is an emotionally painful and stressful process which is even more complicated in today’s economic times.  Negotiating a divorce settlement involves careful analysis, a clear solution and prompt resolution whether by agreement or by litigation. 

Personal Injury

Many of us have had a minor automobile accident or fender bender or fallen with no resulting damage or injury.  However, if you are involved in a major automobile accident involving substantial medical expense, loss of time from work and disabling injuries, you should secure the services of an attorney so that you will receive just compensation for your injuries.

Adoption, Surrogacy and ART

For more than fifteen years, Kurt M. Hughes has been assisting families with the legal aspects of adoption, gestational surrogacy and gamete donation.  He is the only practicing Vermont attorney who is a member of both the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys (AAAA) and the American Academy of Assisted Reproductive Technology Attorneys (AAARTA).  Kurt is passionate about helping clients to build their families, and he gives personal, individualized attention to each and every case.  Kurt has helped hundreds of families provide legally secure homes for their children, and is happy to answer any questions you may have to start the process.
