A 2004 graduate of DePauw University, Huffer "spent much of her time as a youth (sitting) at a dinner table with the county prosecutor, who happened to be her father Jim Huffer." The newspaper reports that Huffer has now joined her father's law firm -- Obear, Overholser, Huffer and Rider -- in Delphi, Indiana.

"I'm fascinated with the law," Abigail Huffer says. "I interned in a Greencastle law firm while at DePauw, although I first majored in science. I then went into English. I also worked for Pearlman, Chosnek and Hopson legal firm in Lafayette as a legal assistant for a year before continuing on to Valparaiso," where she earned both master's and law degrees.

She adds, "The advice my dad gave me about being an attorney Law Scale 4.jpgwas to always have a good handshake and to remember the importance of negotiation when working with people."
