He's my only choice when it comes to attorneys, by far the best I've dealt with
I contacted Brandon to work a domestic case I was going through and I have to say picking him was the best choice I could have made. Brandon's knowledge on the law and procedures is amazing I was so impressed by his skill and the way he took the time to explain the whole process of what was going and what steps we should take to get the best possible outcome in my case. Brandon takes his work very serious and throughout the whole case showed me how important getting me the best possible outcome for me was to him, unlike some attorneys I've dealt with in the past that seem to careless whether they win or lose the case as long as they got paid, but not Brandon he was great at staying in contact with me and letting me know what was going on every step of the way so I never felt in the dark during this case. His staff is also very friendly and courteous and would relay messages to Brandon for me in a timely matter, anytime I called Brandon would always get back to me within a reasonable even with being as busy as he his with his multiple cases going on, he truly put me at ease throughout the whole trial knowing he was on my side and doing everything possible to win for me. And that is exactly what happened he won the case for me and I couldn't be more grateful to Brandon for that. I saw all the great reviews for Brandon and that is what ultimately made me choose to go with him and I couldn't have made a better choice, Brandon did not only meet my expectations but he exceeded them completely. His pricing is also very reasonable compared to a lot of other attorneys out there because i did call other places to get prices for my case. I hope that I will never be in need of his services again, but if I do there will only be one person I call and that is Brandon Henderson. I would recommend him to anyone I know that is dealing with any legal issues.

DUI case
I was facing my fourth DUI and I knew my life was over. I went online and researched lawyers who specialized in Duis and I came across Mr. Brandon Henderson. I read all of his reviews and I was impressed. So I decided to give him a call and I'm very glad i did. With me facing my fourth DUI i was very NERVOUS but he made me feel comfortable when we met. To make a long story short Mr. Henderson work the case so well that the judge handled it like it was my first DUI. I did three days in jail, $1,000 fine and license suspended for 6 months. Hands down he is the best at dealing with DUIs, I recommend him to anyone, Thank you Mr. Henderson

Great Lawyer that will get the job done!
Besides Brandon being one of the smartest people I know, he is very down to Earth. I found him to be sensitive to the situation but didn't mess around or beat around the bush. He was very articulate but always explained everything in plain English. You won't find a harder working or better attorney that has your back. Without any reservation, I highly recommend Mr. Henderson to anyone wanting a positive outcome with a legal issue.

Brandon Henderson
Brandon Henderson is an excellent attorney. My son had multiple DUI's and was facing a felony DUI conviction with a possibility of years in prison. Mr. Henderson patiently walked us though the legal process as both my son and I beleaguered him with questions and "what-ifs". As it turned out, Mr. Henderson directed and represented us in the Veteran's Court and was able to get my son in a long-term rehab program which ultimately will allow my son to have a normal, sober life. I would absolutely and unequivocally recommend Brandon Henderson as your attorney.

Great Choice
Brandon is the hands down best attourney I've had and met.He is extremely personable, and competent and will work his butt off to achieve the best result in a stressful situation.I was extremely blown away not only professionally but also as a person he makes himself as available as possible and puts the pressure on himself rather than the client. Cannot recommend him enough I mean he took an hour and a half off his time on Christmas eve to get to know me and discuss my case...10/10!

Best attorney in CLEVELAND
Brandon is by far the most knowledgeable attorney I have worked with. He's handled numerous legal issues for myself, and has always put me in the best possible position i could be in. He keeps you informed as to what to expect, is very reasonablly priced, extremely attentive (returns calls within 24 hrs) and knows his way around a courthouse. I highly recomend Mr Henderson for any and all legal needs.

Great Lawyer
I fully endorse Brandon for all aspects of Criminal Defense and DUI/OVI. I have seen not only his passion and love for the law but also the compassion he shows for people as an individual. Brandon is very well respected by his colleagues. His preparation, tenacity, and will to win is second to none. He cares deeply about his clients' best interests. I would recommend a family member and/or friend to Brandon in a time of need.

Henderson for Hire
Mr. Brandon Henderson has represented me on more than one occasion. He is a great attorney and has yet to let me or any of my friends down in court. He studies his cases thoroughly and puts a lot of effort into all his cases and always kept me up to date every time things came up involving my case. He seems to have a great relationship with the judges and prosecutors and they show him a lot of respect. This really helps in getting a fair trial/case. He did an excellent job cross examining the witnesses in my case and felt very comfortable through all the proceeding. I would strongly recommend Brandon Henderson for representation.

Need OVI help?
Brandon is passionate about his profession. He diligently works to find the evidence and resources to support you in your case. I was charged with an OVI which he got lowered to a physical control. Remarkable work.
Posted by Amanda | September 24, 2014
Job well done!
I met Brandon several years ago through a good friend. Being young and dumb I got pulled over one night and charged with a OVI. I was scared and ashamed but Brandon not only handled my case, he made sure I knew I was only human and I had simply made a mistake. I wasn't a bad person. He was very open and honest, stayed positive throughout the whole process, and somehow got the case dismissed. I never once felt alone and I couldn't have imagined a better outcome considering the circumstances. He is not only a great attorney , he is a kind and compassionate man . He will go to any extent to make sure his client gets the best deal possible, and is at ease during the whole process. I've used Brandon on several other occasions for other legal matters, and will always highly recommend him to anyone that needs help. I couldn't ask for a better man to represent me and I am honored to call him a dear friend as well. Job well done!

Lifesaver!
Brandon goes above and beyond for his clients. Got me out of situations that other lawyers doubted. He's extremely good at what he does. And I wouldn't go to anyone else to represent me. He basically saved my life. I dont know where I would have ended up if it wasnt for him. Not only is he a good friend of mine, he is a hard working and very reputable lawyer.

Great attorney!
Brandon worked on a case for my son. His knowledge of the laws and how they should be applied and prosecuted got my sons case dismissed. Mr. Henderson's expertise, belief in his clients and vigorous defense are qualities you can always expect from Mr. Henderson!

Review for Brandon Henderson
To whom it may concern: I am writing you in regard to Attorney Brandon Henderson, Attorney at Law. The purpose of this is to provide a character reference for Mr. Henderson who has represented me during my second criminal offense in Ohio, furthermore I have known Mr. Henderson for approximately five years. I first met Brandon when I landed myself in an unfortunate incident with the law. I was recommended to him through family and friends. Every person that I spoke with had nothing but the highest compliments for Brandon, so after meeting with him during our first consultation I was more than comfortable with having him represent me for the purposes of court. Having known Brandon for upwards of five years, I believe puts me in the position to provide you with a pretty accurate assessment of his character. As my attorney he went above and beyond my expectations. I was nervous, obviously due to my pending charge. Any time I would reach out to Brandon he would answer his phone in the evening and even on weekends. Any email correspondence was responded to within 12-24 hours. Brandon was assertive in court and was always prepared, he didn’t skip a beat and I was highly impressed with his ethical stance as well as demeanor in court. He is not an arrogant attorney as many are, he is a down to earth, hardworking guy who loves the law and truly loves to help people in his community. As an attorney, Mr. Henderson is a standout. He is loyal, honest, strait forward and considerate. He doesn’t beat around the bush even if its news you dont want to hear, he kept things very honest and upfront, there were no surprises during my case with him and he was diligent through my entire court process. It is very obvious to me that Brandon is a compassionate man who truly loves his job and has a high respect for the law. He does not make you feel less than a person simply because of your circumstances. He is a great listener and treated me like a family member rather than a client. To be honest, I really can’t think of anything negative in terms of personality or his moral and ethical background. All in all, I would have to say that Brandon Henderson is a very balanced person and attorney with an abundance of positive qualities. There needs to be more lawyers who practice the way Mr. Henderson does, he is a great lawyer and a very good person. Sincerely, Christopher

Best lawyer around!
Brandon has been a great help with my past legal problems and continues to answer any questions that I have regarding any legal matters. I would recommend his services to anyone!

A hard working passionate attorney for you!
I have known Brandon Henderson for over 20 years. I have known him as a good friend and unfortunately as a client as well. As a friend I have known him to be a very caring, honest, and passionate person. As a client I have seen that caring, honesty, and passion carry over into his profession as an attorney. Brandon truly cares about you and achieving the best outcome he can for you. Brandon will be honest and up front about your situation while passionately defending you and your rights. At a time when you need an attorney it can be very dark and scary. Brandon quickly makes a person feel more comfortable and less stressed out at these times. Brandon knows he is there for you and it shows. Numerous times Brandon has represented myself or the many family and friends that I have confidently referred to him. Each case has ended in better than expected results. There is not anyone I would trust more to put in the hard work and passionately defend myself or anyone I know. Any client would be in very good hands with Brandon.

A lawyer who always delivers a first class performance for his clients!
Brandon Henderson has been representing me for the better part of 10 years in any legal matter that has come up in my personal and business life. He has always delivered better then favorable results in cases for me such as traffic violations, previous DUI's, and felony charges, etc. If he did not get me all but out of trouble, he has always delivered results that were in my best interest and I am very happy and grateful to know he is always in my corner. I have refered him to anyone that I have come into contact with that is in need of a top defense attorney, and they have all thanked me for bringing them to him. In closing I would just like to say that before I started using Brandon I had used several respected attorneys that never put any serious effort towards my representation. Every time I call Brandon I know that He will work hard to prepare a first class defense, fight tenaciously on my behalf in court , and has excellent relationships with the judges and proscutors for a favorable outcome. Thank You Brandon!
