Very Great Attorney
Mr. Henderson is a very calm and soft spoken man. This worried me as my husband's attorney was very boisterous and dishonest. However, Mr. Henderson is very good at his practice. He is very knowledgeable in the law and provided the highest level of service. My husband was the biggest liar and "victim" you would ever meet. Mr Henderson presented the facts and let them speak for themselves in court. Needless to say we won the divorce. My husband filed an appeal and Mr Henderson was able to win the appeal as well. I can't speak highly enough about him and the outstanding service that he provides. If you are in need of a great attorney with knowledge of the law, Mr Henderson is your guy!

Knowledgeable and Professional Divorce Lawyer
I worked with Mr. Henderson and Lori for about 18 months toward my eventual divorce. I was super happy with my results. He was very honest about what to expect, and from his initial counseling to the final result, he was right on the money with what I would probably lose in the divorce, which was significantly less than what she asked for. I would highly recommend his services as a divorce lawyer to anyone. Feel free to contact me on my webpage at www.randysurles.com if you want more information. Thanks, Clark!!

| Consulted Attorney
Informative Consult!!!
I met with Mr. Henderson concerning my divorce case, and during the consult, I received more detailed and thorough information from him about the processes of divorce than I had during my ongoing divorce case from my other lawyer. He was very direct and candid. He didn't sugar coat anything, but I never felt impatience, intimidation, or judgment, only professionalism and a calm demeanor in voice and body language, which was very important given the turbulent circumstances of my marriage. His and Mr. Oberliesen's assistants were wonderful, too. In the end, Mr. Henderson and I decided that the cost of switching firms mid divorce would be exorbitant, and that I should just switch lawyers at my other firm. He was trying to save my pocket book, which I really appreciated at the time. I should have trusted my instincts and switched to Mr. Henderson, and I believe had I made the switch to Mr. Henderson, I would still have the restraining order that I was desperate to keep. Don't take my word about Mr. Henderson. Meet with him and his staff yourself, and see if the lawyer-client relationship is a good fit because his knowledge and professionalism is superb!

Absolutely YES!
This review is for Mr. Clark Henderson. He was my attorney while practicing at Campbell & Henderson. Sadly, he had to back out of my ongoing divorce case due to conflict of interest. Mr. Oberliesen was representing my spouse at the time, and both attorneys joined as partners-creating their shared law practice that is today, 'Oberliessen & Henderson'. Now that that's explained, I cannot speak for that new practice, but for Mr. Henderson himself. My experience with Clark was a God send. Dealing with a bad divorce attorney in the past, he completely changed my opinion of lawyers. He is a different breed of person, let alone attorneys. If you want someone that sees you and treats you as a human being, and cares what happens to your children, this is your guy. He always made time for open/honest communication. Even when I was hard to communicate with. Phone calls and emails were answered/addressed in a timely manner and given the utmost courtesy. That behavior alone is so telling in a lawyer and law practice!!! My kids and I were going through a lot-- much more than typical divorce stuff (which is hardcore and brutal on its own). Dealing with domestic violence issues, serious medical problems, corrupt/negligent/incompetent Army command, and relocation issues--he was my ROCK-- and he did it with grace, integrity, humility, and compassion. I hope he never changes because it is a gift from God that he is able to share with the world. Dont get me wrong- he has immense respect for military- as i served too- but he acknowledged and identified where there was misconduct and did his best to remedy what was within his scope. Military wives and children in that area are suffering in silence and there is a diabolical habit of sweeping it under the rug, among the myriad of other things commands dont want to touch. People misinterpret acknowledgement for being anti-something- not the case. He kept up to date and educated himself on medical issues and knew the severity/seriousness...more importantly, the cognitive and physical impact. That said, had made no unreasonable or unrealistic expectations of what i could or could not do (relayed, scheduled, etc. accordingly) but never treating me as an invalid. He knew the care and love I provide my kids, regardless of everything, even on the worst days. To this moment, if it weren't for the conflict of interest, I would not hesitate to hire him again in a milisecond. Its been almost a year that he has not been representing me and I regret not writing this review much sooner, as he is so very deserving of all the praise in the world! Divorce is expensive but a good attorney is WORTH it, believe that!!! And he did not take advantage of anything, if I'm completely honest, I feel like I owe him still- and probably always will. That is how a great attorney/person will leave you feeling. Anyone going through this: just know you are stronger than you know and braver than you think. this too shall pass!!! I know this review is winded (i never write reviews) but I want to include whatever helpful information I can to aid in someone making a decision which holds so much weight. LIVES are literally at jeopardy.

Fantastic family lawyer!!!!
I had a very urgent matter with the custody of my daughter and very little time to prepare. While deployed my wife found this firm and we hired Clark Henderson for the case and he hit the ground running. At the trial he fought as if it was for his own child and I'm thankful to say that we won I got my little girl back. I'm beyond greatful to Mr Henderson for the results.

Couldn't have asked for more.
Clark is the first attorney I've ever hired in my life. He not only jumped on my situation without delay, but successfully represented me in court over the phone across the country. He and his paralegal, Lori, are extremely responsive and never missed a beat when I had concerns. He educated me thoroughly throughout the 2 weeks we worked together through email and phone conversations. He made this painstaking process very easy and I was happy to be represented by him. THANK YOU.

You will not find a better lawyer than Mr. Henderson
I had a very unique case, which involved an immigration fraud and no consummation of marriage. I wanted an annulment, for which Mr. Henderson fought furiously. I did not had any children involved, still the case got twisted because my X had her twisted games. My X filed against me in court of New Jersey once she found out we were trying to file a case here in Florida and I was hunting for her location (I was contacting her friends and family). We did everything by the books. Mr. Henderson asked me to do everything that was true and right thing to do. It was a tedious and long awaiting process but a right process; which actually paid off in our jurisdictions case. I am in the military and it was hard for me to go down to New Jersey and fight my case all over again, which also meant spending more money and higher new lawyer. Because of Mr. Henderson’s due diligence we won the jurisdiction case; during which I realized how important it was to have a lawyer who was well prepared and well disciplined, because my X’s lawyer was completely opposite of my lawyer (Mr. Henderson of course). After winning the jurisdiction case it was time for my annulment case, one month after. IMPORTANT; Killed two birds with one stone. Since the beginning Mr. Henderson knew wining an annulment case was tough and diving into the gravity of the situation he also filed for desolation of marriage in alternative of an annulment. Which means if the Judge don’t grant an annulment we would move on to divorce hearing subsequently an annulment hearing. Saved lot of time and money as well as going through all that stress. Predictions hold true. Judge did not grant me an annulment because of only one reason! It was not Mr. Henderson’s fault. But we won the divorce case. Bottom line: I did not had to pay a dime to my X. I got everything I wanted except a document stating an “Annulment” on top. Decree stated she committed immigration fraud which was forwarded to immigration fraud officer on a pending case. Finally, Judge asked me that I had a very unique case and I should fight for annulment at a higher court because there was no history of such cases. Mr. Henderson suggested me that I got everything I wanted except a document stating “Annulment” on top instead of “Divorce”, going further will just be an unreasonable spending of my time and money. But if I do decide to fight further Mr. Henderson said “I will jump right in with you and will fight for annulment” I am writing this review as a “Thank you” to Mr. Henderson for giving my life back. Trust me people he is the right lawyer for you.

Sharp, Young Attorney That Advocates Well For His Clients
I've been a client of the Campbell & Henderson since 2009 and Mr. Henderson started working my caseload exclusively in 2015. I closed out work with him in December of 2015 and had to retain his services again in the beginning of 2017 for some extremely time sensitive work that required his complete focus and dedication. He and his paralegal, Ms. Patterson, did a great job advocating for me and getting motions in front of the court very expeditiously, without sacrificing the quality of the work. I highly recommend Mr. Henderson, as he is a sharp, young, proactive attorney who avocates well for his clients.

Will Preparation
I had previously had an alimony modification done by Mr Henderson, and it was time to have a will drawn up. The process was easy, and thorough. Mr Henderson explained how the process and law worked in Florida. Also, very fast writing the will from my input. I would like to thank Mr Henderson, Lori Patterson, and Cindy Bumgardner for their time and effort. If you need an attorney for any family law related issues, I highly recommend Mr Henderson and staff.

Fantastic attorney
Clark Henderson is an extremely intelligent, patient, and understanding lawyer. It can be difficult to find such a lawyer , but he met all my needs. He gives his clients the time they deserve and listens to their needs before making suggestions. His legal counsel is done in the client's best interest. He takes time to analyze the issue at hand and come up with the most informative legal solution. I absolutely trust the legal advice he provides because he does it in a way that is simplified and easy-to-understand . His office makes scheduling easy and I would absolutely recommend him to use as your lawyer for legal issues. He is personable and great to work with.

"As a peer professional and local attorney that has had the opportunity to represent clients in an adversarial posture to Mr. Henderson's clients, I can attest to Mr. Henderson's professionalism, skills as an advocate and negotiator, and representative of his clients' best interests. I have found that when there is an opportunity to resolve matters short of litigating in court, thus saving the client literally thousands in attorney's fees, he is creative and above board in his dealings and I have had success in working with him to bring disputes to mutually satisfactory resolutions. Whenever that was simply an impossibility and matters did need to proceed to court, I have found Mr. Henderson to be a well prepared and formidable adversary. Indeed, when I have an event opposite Mr. Henderson, I know that I will need to cover all my bases, explore every angle and be almost over-prepared because I know that is the type effort he affords his clients. He has my unqualified endorsement."
