About Us

David Orbach and David Huff founded the firm in 1997 and Phil Henderson joined in 2009. Since our inception, we have represented public agencies in the planning, implementation and finalization of modernization and ground-up construction projects. The success we achieved from this cornerstone of our practice has led to the firm’s evolution to now representing approximately 100 public agencies throughout California in nearly every aspect of requested services, including labor and employment, public procurement transactions, governance, special education, student services, charter schools, and civil rights.

The companion of our cornerstone practice area has been the representation of private developers, REITs and lenders with the implementation of ground-up and adaptive reuse high-rise hotels, multi-family residential projects, large commercial and industrial developments, and domestic and island resorts. We help deliver the private development by providing services at every step from inception to post-completion.

We maintain a conflict-free practice by only representing owners, public and private, and routinely decline to work against the interests of our owner clients by representing contractors, designers and other consultants in construction matters.

We are not only transactional advisors, but a team of experienced jury trial lawyers with demonstrated success. This blend of real transactional and trial experience coupled with the decades of achievement for our clients positions our firm to provide precisely the type of services we are privileged to offer.

Diverse viewpoints and creative thinking are essential to develop innovative, workable solutions in every aspect of life. For a multifaceted law firm such as Orbach Huff & Henderson LLP, diversity within our firm is critical to the quality of our legal work, our client service, and the professional development of our attorneys and staff.

To us, diversity means differing life experiences, cultures and backgrounds, as well as gender, race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, age or any other status protected by applicable nondiscrimination laws.

At Orbach Huff & Henderson LLP, we believe that a more diverse law firm is a better law firm; as such, we believe that increasing the diversity of our attorneys and professional staff helps us to be better legal counselors and problem solvers.

We continually look for ways to increase the quality of our firm by increasing the diversity of our firm. As a firm, our diversity goals include:

  • To successfully recruit, develop and retain attorneys and staff of diverse backgrounds and characteristics.
  • To foster an inclusive professional environment that respects and values differences among our attorneys and staff and supports professional development and advancement for all.

Our firm’s commitment to diversity goes beyond our longstanding Nondiscrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy. Orbach Huff & Henderson LLP is committed to and involved in promoting diversity in our firm and our communities. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee leads this effort, but our community of lawyers and staff also exemplify in personal action our intended goals.

Through mentoring, educational programs, sponsorships, outreach efforts, and community service, Orbach Huff & Henderson LLP strives to create opportunities for each unique voice in our culture to be heard.

Diversity has always been an important value for Orbach Huff & Henderson LLP and continues to be a key element of our strategic vision. For our multifaceted legal practice, diversity within the firm is critical to the quality of legal work and client service we provide.

Working together, we look forward to continuing to increase our diversity, equity and inclusion in the years to come.
