Thank you Ms Henry and your staff :)

Thorough, available and effective
Debra was a true blessing in a very difficult divorce. Debra helped me thoroughly prepare for the child custody hearings and offered not only the legal asupport I needed, but also emotional support too. Debra took the time to listen and provided clear and easy to understand information. Her staff were very patient and kind. I would highly recommend Debra and her staff.

Deb and her staff have treated me very well throughout the last 14 months. While the total cost of my legal bills were high, Deb was always willing to try to avoid unnecessary expenses (unlike a lot of attorneys out there). They were also willing to work with me on payment options and were never demanding when I wasn't able to pay the bill right away. All of the staff were responsive to my calls and emails and did well keeping me informed along the way.

Consulted with her regarding a family law issue. She could not specifically help me because the issue was in another state, but listened and provided helpful opinions. My rating is only based on a short meeting but I would consider her for future counsel should the need arise

Professional and Compassionate Help
Attorney Henry handled the divorce in a timely manner. Her staff is always polite and caring, returning phone calls and correspondence promptly. I feel I can ask any question and will have an answer when I need it. Attorney Henry’s knowledge of the divorce code and child custody issues helped me make the right decisions. I am thankful I called Attorney Henry for help during this difficult process.

So Far So Good
Honest and gives realistic expectations. My case custody case is fairly complicated and she has been honest and given me a realistic picture without promising me the moon. I appreciate that. Things are still pending so we will see how things go but so far I've been pleased with her work and level of engagement.
