A Shark on My Side
Mary Henderson was an amazing lawyer. When I was served a petition for custody and didn't know what to do or who to turn to, she was there for myself and my son. Her knowledge and experience coupled with her intellect and sharp wit proved to be more than the opposition could handle. I would definitely recommend Mary Henderson to anyone in need of legal shark on their side.

hiring mary henderson
my lawyer helped me get custody of my daughter. She did this with as much professionalism and as least stress as possible. She made sure i understood everything that was going on instead of taking money and just throwing out legal terms. I highly recommend her for anything you need.
