Huber named new deputy county attorney


The Cheyenne County Attorney’s Office has a new deputy attorney.

Justin R. Huber, of Sidney, began his tenure earlier this week.

On Tuesday, Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub said he is looking forward to working with Huber.

“He started working for Matzke & Mattoon here in town in August 2013,” Schaub said during a phone interview from Kearney, where he and Huber were attending training at a Nebraska County Attorney’s Association seminar.

Huber graduated from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 2013.

“He has excellent academic credentials,” Schaub added.

The county attorney said he had received eight or nine resumes, “but Justin stood out from the rest.”

Huber’s first day on the job was Tuesday.

“He’s determined, he’s confident, he’s motivated,” Schaub said, “and that’s everything we need in a very demanding environment.”

Schaub said he’s had an opportunity to see first hand Huber’s skills as a lawyer.

“I was involved in a case where he was on the side,” Schaub explained, “and so I can speak from personal experience. In my opinion, I think he’ll do a good job.”

Huber takes over a vacancy created when former Deputy County Attorney Charlotte Hood left the position a month ago.

After nearly 10 years at the Cheyenne County Attorney’s Office, Hood is now the county attorney in Box Butte County.
