I’m Zach Bulthuis and I started Huntington Legal Solutions after nearly 10 years as a corporate trial lawyer for two of the nation’s largest law firms. That experience was invaluable, but I came to recognize that inefficiencies from big firm practices are often paid for by their clients—in money and time.

With HLS you get concierge-level attention and big firm experience without paying for costly overhead or services you don’t need.

Your business is your livelihood, and I understand legal issues must be addressed with the bigger picture in mind. That’s why my goal isn’t simply a successful legal outcome; it’s a successful overall outcome with minimal impact to other areas of your business and life.


I began practicing law at O’Melveny & Myers, the oldest and largest firm in Los Angeles, where I worked on some of the highest-profile litigation in the country. I then moved to Orange County to become a senior trial associate at Dorsey & Whitney. In these positions I represented clients in a wide range of litigations including:

  • Product liability
  • Breach of contract and business fraud
  • Employment litigation
  • Employment advice
  • “Soft” intellectual property litigation (e.g. trademark and trade dress)

Prior to O’Melveny & Myers, I was a judicial law clerk for the High Court of American Samoa, drafting legal rulings and opinions in trial-level cases and appeals.
