About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Dedicated to obtaining positive results in Divorce, Alimony, Child Support, Child Custody, and Property Settlement matters.

Henry Law was just named to the TOP 10 FAMILY LAW firms by Attorney and Practice Magazine for 2021.  David Henry was honored to receive the LAWYERS OF DISTINCTION AWARD in 2020 for Family Law & Divorce. Only 2 Family Law attorneys in Pennsylvania were given this award in 2020 and only 12 attorneys in total won this award for any area of law in 2020.

Henry Law received the CLIENT'S CHOICE AWARD in 2021, 2020, 2019, 2016, 2015, and 2013 for outstanding client satisfaction . . . and that's what is most important . . . that my clients are fully satisfied with the job my law firm has done for them.

I have an Advanced Law Degree (LL.M.) in Trials and a Law Degree (J.D.).

The combination of these degrees helps me to not only tackle any family law matters you might have, but also to more effectively assert your rights should negotiations break down and you need to have your divorce, alimony, child support, child custody, or property settlement agreement argued before a judge and in a court of law.

I also have earned a Master's Degree in Taxation (M.Tax)

The Master's Degree in Taxation, plus considerable practical experience, helps me to efficiently analyze the tax consequences of your divorce or property settlement agreement, which is often a component that is overlooked and could result in costly financial mistakes.

winning attorney
Mr. Henry is an amazing attorney. He has been handling my custody case. He has two wins in his corner. I feel very confident going to court with Mr. Henry on my side. Not only is he a great attorney he is very easy to get ahold of. He gave me his cell phone number so I am always able to reach him and the best part is he is available on weekends. He is extremely thorough And explains everything every step of the way. I would reccomend Mr. Henry to anyone who is looking for A great attorney.

Excellent, aggressive but compassionate Attorney
I am currently a client of David Henry. He is representing me through my divorce and we are actively working on a property settlement. He is fighting hard for me to get what I deserve, as my husband and his attorney are dragging their feet, and not following court orders. He is always reassuring, keeps me up to date, always takes my calls, replies to my emails and concerns, and is really fighting for me!!! I highly recommend him!!!

Saved me on my divorce and custody cases
I can't say thank you enough to the lawyers at Henry Law. I went to them first with my custody case for my three kids and was able to get shared 50-50 custody. Considering my work schedule and lies from my wife about me, I was super happy with being able to get this, which is what I wanted. Because they did such a good job, I hired them for my divorce, which went quickly. Because of their strategy, my divorce ended quickly and with a fair settlement.

My custody lawsuit.
Henry is a very good lawyer. I asked him to help my daughter's custody lawsuit. He is a very experienced lawyer. From the very beginning, he gave me very good suggestions and helped me draft very reasonable conditions acceptable to both parties. I followed the steps he told me and finally reached an agreement with my ex-wife before going to court. I am very satisfied with hired him as my lawyer. He used the least time and money to achieve the result I wanted. Very good lawyer, highly recommended to everyone.

Child Custody
I would like to thank Mr Henry. I was faxed with an Emergency Custody Hearing. I found Mr Henry short notice. He was honest and did not think I had a case. But heard me out anyway. It's 1 in a million to for a grandmother to get Custody over a parent. But Mr Henry won me that. And I have retained him for more issues that have arrived. Brutally honest, but will fight for you against all odds. I would recommend him to anyone. Pricing is more then fair for the dedication you get, and passion. Thank you Mr Henry for fighting for the rights of the child.

Senior consultant
David did his absolute best from the start of the case. Even though this case took longer then most he was steadfast in his dedication to our agreement of the outcome. I am extremely happy with the outcome. I would recommend David to anyone that needs his expert services. Additionally David is a decorated veteran which very much appealed to me in our relationship. I highly recommend him as a valued attorney.

Response from David Henry April 1, 2021
Yes, in order to prevent waging WW3 with my client's spouse on property division and alimony, we needed to go a little bit longer route, but it saved my client about $15,000 in attorney's fees and he got the exact result he wanted, so a little patience on his part was very smart. The custody side of the case was resolved within 6 weeks and went extremely fast . . . we went right to court on that issue because the other side was not going to negotiate anything.

Excellent attorney and great legal advice
I hired David Henry at Henry Law to help me with my divorce and custody matters. He is completely honest, straight-forward, and his fees are reasonable. I had a prior attorney before coming to him and she charged me for all kinds of nonsense . . . no overbilling with David though! I am forever grateful to him and his staff for helping me obtain primary custody and dealing with my very difficult spouse. I was able to get a very fair property settlement and am now able to move forward with my life. I have already recommended him to my cousin!

Now I can start a new life after divorce!
I came to Henry Law with divorce, custody, and support issues and was terrified about my future. Mr. Henry not only put my mind at ease through the process, but helped me get primary custody, both spousal and child support, and even discovered money my spouse was hiding, which resulted in me getting more money than I thought we ever had! Now I can start my new life and I'm excited about it.

David Henry
David Henry was referred to me through a friend during a very dark time in my life. David not only was understanding and compassionate but he took the time to listen to my personal situation. David's years of experience helped put not only a smile on my face but ensured me I was going to be okay.

Exceptional Results on my divorce and custody issues
My prior attorney messed everything up and I didn't even know until I went to meet with David and during my initial consultation he was able to immediately figure out why the divorce case wasn't moving forward and came up with a plan of action. In little time, I got my divorce decree! As for the custody of my two girls, I was able to get primary custody and was allowed to move out of state with them. Mr. Henry ... you helped me in my time of need and stress and I can't thank you enough. God Bless You!

Smart, professional, honest and GREAT results!
I met with Mr. Henry for a dealing with my custody, support, and divorce issues. I can't say enough GREAT things about him and his staff. Although my divorce is not quite done, he has worked to get it completed as quickly as possible, despite the other side trying to delay things. Won on a tough custody case and he effectively fought to have my suppost set at a much lower rate than what it could have been. I love his online portal where I can review all documents and calendar items 24/7 and without the need to call and discuss the status of things like I had to with my prior attorney. My prior attorney would nickle and dime me on everything, but that wasn't the case with Henry Law. Highest recommendation

If you don't hire this attorney, you will lose your divorce!
As a man, I though I would get the raw end of the deal in divorce court. Mr. Henry proved this not to be the case. Not only did I get an absolutely fair property settlement decision, but I also got 50-50 custody of my kids!!!! Who would have thought I could win on both counts. I also have to say that I love the fact that I can see all documents on the secure server, to which I got a login so I can keep tabs on things 24/7 and without having to call to keep track of things. If you don't hire this attorney, you will lose.

I can't say enough great things!
I hired Henry Law to assist me with my divorce, support, and child custody matters. Despite having a husband trying to do everything he can to hide money, pay no child support, pay no spousal support, and lying to the court constantly to try and get primary custody, Mr. Henry aggressively fought him along the way and won EVERY SINGLE court hearing. I got primary custody, child support, spousal support, and he beat my husband on every motion filed against me. Mr Henry also found money and assets my husband was trying to hide as part of the divorce. Henry Law is amazing and I highly recommend them.

Thorough and knowledgeable
David goes the extra mile to get the job done. He anticipates how parties may respond and takes action to beat them to the point. He is thorough and competent and it shows in how he prepares and presents his case. My son is a satisfied client and I'm a satisfied Grandmother.

Child Custody
Our entire family is very happy that our nephew has found and hired this attorney since a previous attorney given to him did not help him to see his boys like in the past. This attorney is excellent and we consider this a Blessing also.
