I tried one other lawyer before Mr Hensley and I wasn't impressed. However Mr Hensley told me my options and the best way to handle my case. I was so very impressed by how quickly he handled everything and how much he seemed to want to help! I loved that he was available at basically anytime I needed! I couldn't have picked a better lawyer and will for sure use him again if I ever needed a lawyer!! Thank you so much!

The time came to make a bold stand in fighting a terrible battle to change our lives forever. We had to be courageous and determined to the end. There were many road blocks along the way, but Mr. Hensley was there for us; directing our every path. He gave us sound advice. He was ALWAYS there at any time of the day or night in assisting us. Once on vacation, he even took time from his family to help us. We are very grateful to this man. He is truely an Earth Angel; a heavenly soldier because our case began in prayer and he was able to seal that answered prayer. He knows the importance of mending lives through justice and that which is right. We are proud to say that this man is our lawyer and friend.

I have had terrible experiences with lawyers. I have hired two that never had time for me and never took the time to really understand what was going on. I would leave their offices feeling as if I was defeated already.
Jim is exactly the opposite. When I first spoke to him, he listened to everything I had to say and every concern I had. He told me exactly what could be done, what I could expect and how long it would take. I left his office feeling so encouraged and knowing that I finally had a lawyer that actually cared.
I don't have to try and track Jim down to figure out what is going on with my case. He contacts me on a regular basis to let me know how everything is proceeding. When I have a question I know that I can call or email Jim and get a very quick response. Jim doesn't stop working just because it is after hours. I have talked to him on several evenings and even on weekends.
I feel that I am not just a case to Jim. He recognizes that custody cases are very difficult emotionally and he is very responsive to all of my concerns.
To say that Jim goes above and beyond is an understatement.

I am currently using James as my lawyer and he is by far the best lawyer I have ever used. James is very straight foward and tells you exactly what things to do......and not to do. When something with my case happens I can call or text him immediately and he gives me advise. I have called and texted him at hours that other lawyers would not have been available to answer my calls. So far I am extremely pleased with everything he has done for me!

Jim is the reason we won my divorce case. He gave a simple set of instructions to follow. If you listen to him you will win your case. I couldn't ask for a better attorney.

Jim has been excellent in helping me with my divorce! He is always available anytime I have a need. His staff is fabulous! I have already recommended him to others. I can't say enough good things about him!

I/we highly recommend Jim Hensley. We have used his services and advice three separate times and also recommended him to a friend who used him. Three custody cases we used him for and he was wonderful and won all THREE. He is down to earth, very honest and gives great advice and VERY fair! He not only caring to the side he's representing, but also to the other side. He returns calls and answers emails extremely quick. You never have to worry about getting in contact with him. He knows just how to direct you in the right direction. Just when you think you may be a tad mad/upset with his advice, he pulls through and what he said will happen happens in your favor. He definitely knows what he is doing. He is excellent in the court room.:-) Jim also has a secretary in his North Little Rock office who is THE BEST as well. She is his right hand and when he's not around to answer questions she will always fill in or finds out for you. I highly recommend Jim Hensley and would definitely use him a fourth time!!

Straight shooter. Jim was recommended to me from a mutual friend, who also happens to be a lawyer. He helped sort the pieces of a broken, horrible situation and set forth a plan of action that moved my life, and the lives of my two beautiful children, into a light of security and hope. Jim answers when I call, sets my path straight and gives me direction for every next step that comes. I appreciate his honesty and in return, I give him the same. In the storm of divorce and now dealing with custody, I can trust he will guide me straight through to the end and give me the courage to fight for a life my children and I deserve.

Mr. Hensley handled a child custody battle and as other have stated he has a way of calming your fears in even the worst situation. I will not use any other attorney as Jim has earned my trust and respect.

I am the Ex-Husband of Sharon who wrote the review on Jim Hensley. I would like to state that in my opinion Jim performed outstanding for her case. Sharon had 2 previous lawyers before Jim and fired both of them because they would not agree with her. Now she has hired her 4th lawyer to appeal the decree written by her 3rd lawyer. Jim Hensley is a great person and was very respectful to me even though I was on the other side. I do not agree with the review written by Sharon and would recommend Jim Hensley as a Lawyer.

never took action, never entered dozens of receipts or any kind of proof to the judge,never cross examined witnesses and spent most of court time responding or playing on his blackberry. never brought forth comtempt of court charges. took weeks for him to reply to myself and never with answers. never kept me informed. just lazy and horrible lawyer.

Mr. Hensley helped me with a divorce. It was a very bad time in my life. Me and my wife did joint custody. Jim was always able to help me and he gave me his cell number. I will only use him for legal needs.

Jim Feel's like a very close part of my Family. Even when things seem bad, he can put you to feeling better. all he ask, is to be honest with him, no matter what. In return we get trust and solid understandable advise. I know Jim has the best of my interest at heart. His fee's are fair and well worth the help he can give you. we would recommend him to any one that want a fair deal with any legal matter.
