He was born on June 14, 1940 and graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 1962, with a degree in Political Science. In 1965 he earned his law degree from Vanderbilt Law School.

He began his law career in Little Rock at the law firm Pope, Pratt and Shamberger, after which he practiced with Tom Gentry.

Then, in the early 70’s, he was recruited by his beloved senior partner Sam Laser to the firm which soon became Laser, Sharp, Haley, Young and Huckabay.

In 1984 Mike founded the law firm Huckabay, Munson, Tilley and Rowlett.

In 2011 he and his son began the Huckabay Law Firm, where he practiced with Kathryn Knisley and Jay Sayes.

Mike was a trial lawyer of great skill and was well respected as an advocate by both the Bench and Bar throughout Arkansas. As recognition of his skills as a trial lawyer, Mike was a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers, a member of the International Society of Barristers, a Diplomate of the American Board of Trial Advocates, as well as a member of the Arkansas and Pulaski County Bar Associations.

Mike was a natural trial lawyer having tried over 450 jury trials. He praised those who made and seized opportunity for themselves not only in the practice of law but in life.

We will forever miss him and forever be indebted to him.

Godspeed, Mike.
