Our practice focuses on people, not just the law.  We are passionate about serving you, your family, and your business with a comprehensive legal perspective.  Let us help answer your personal and business legal challenges with a solution that is comprised of equal parts excellence, integrity, and compassion.  That’s Dale Huffman & Babcock.

No two clients share the exact same vision or challenge.  We don’t have a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to our legal services.  We adapt our approach to service the unique needs of your family or business.  Let us help you plan for the future with the tools and knowledge to tackle any situation.

Our Firm was founded in 1979, when attorney David C. Dale decided to take his passion for serving the legal needs of our community to the next level by opening his own practice with one legal assistant and a typewriter.  Partners Keith P. Huffman and Timothy K. Babcock, in concert with our staff of Attorneys, continue our rich tradition of serving our community, which now extends throughout Northeast Indiana. Our practice focuses on:
