Review of Attorney C. Henry Fasoldt
I am not quite sure where to start when writing about Henry. Not incidentally, he never asked me to do this, I suggested it to him. This is not the first time I have had to use an attorney; after all, I am twice divorced and that involved whole offices of attorneys. They were all entirely focused on their financial interests and I got scalped, both times. The first time involved considerable illegal behavior on the part of those representing me including an under-the-table financial collaboration with my husband. The second divorce involved jacking up the price with unnecessary time and behaviors and then making it difficult for me to do anything about the first law firm and for the second one, I didn't even try. These episodes occurred in the past and have been out of my mind although the financial repurcussions have required attention over the years and have damaged my life. More recently, after being arrested for a DUI and kept in a cold jail cell overnight I was pretty traumatized, no less by the fact that I was going to have to get involved with another lawyer. Fortunately a family member helped me by doing internet research and found this law firm following which Henry began to work on my case. Henry got involved very quickly, drove out to my house which is at the other end of the state from his office, picked me up and took photos of the area where I'd been stopped. He even drove me to the post office to buy stamps because a family member asked him to help me with that, unbeknownst to me; Henry found his way there on his own, never mentioned to me that we were going there, apparently realizing that I'd have refused the favor. Since Henry charged a lump sum negotiated in advance, he didn't get paid for that favor. I might mention that family who work in the financial area thought his price was reasonable. When I commented on his niceness, he replied that he would not be "nice" when defending me in court. He was implying that he responds to situations in ways that he believes will be effective. He was telling the truth. While he was very sweet with me and a family member who accompanied me and often humourous, when inside the courtroom he presented as intellligent, dignified and at times, forceful. Apparently he was also persuasive. Although I did not witness his private talks with the ADA's I could not have failed to notice that both were impressed by him. The first one was a woman in early middle age who kept turning around from her seat in front of him to make comments and smile at him. The second one was a young man who followed us around after the court appearance, trying to chat with him, gave him part of his life's story, unsolicited. That Henry is tall, handsome and well-dressed likely contributed to his success although as stated, his knowledge, skill and personality seemed so very effective. I was actually innocent of the charges and Henry quickly grasped the effect of my multiple medical issues that the police did not understand. However, since there were no witnesses, I had been in the car alone, I think the situation could have gone either way in court. A less skillful attorney might not have been successful.
I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Henry. The legal profession should be grateful to him for his attention to ethics and reputation and lack of involvement in dishonesty and money worship. He is a gift of gold to his clilents.
