Founded in the fall of 1980 by Ralph R. Bouma, Jr. and John P. Martin in Wheaton, Illinois, Huck Bouma, PC began as a practice that concentrated principally in the areas of employee benefits, estate & tax planning, and real estate. As the firm grew through the addition of more attorneys and staff, it moved to larger offices in Glen Ellyn in 1984. James M. Huck, Jr. joined the firm as a transactional partner in 1988.
