What We Do

Hudson, Potts & Bernstein is a client focused, full-service regional law firm. Though the firm began with an emphasis on banking, corporate, and insurance law, it has expanded over the last 146 years to serve almost every area of the law across four states. While the firm’s clients range from Fortune 500 companies and international manufacturers to family businesses and individuals, its focus is always the same – to bring the full force of its considerable experience and resources to bear in order to achieve the best possible results.

Our Results

One thing is certain, HPB could not have enjoyed 146 years of success if it did not produce results. It is this tradition of success that continues to sustain the firm. HPB’s attorneys have successfully tried jury trials to verdict in four states and have successfully represented clients before the United States Supreme Court, the Louisiana, Arkansas, and Mississippi Supreme Courts, and countless other appellate and trial courts throughout the region.
