Therese was very helpful during the process. She wanted to make sure that I had a voice. She would give me options and then I made the decision of what path I would like to take in the process.

You won't be disappointed...
Attorney Henke is an excellent choice if you are looking for a lawyer. Therese recently represented me in my divorce. I found her to not only be a phenomenal legal resource, but kind, personable, and tough when she needed to be with opposing counsel. Therese kept me informed throughout every step of the process and was always timely in her communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney!

Excellent Family Law Attorney
Therese is a highly competent and experienced attorney. Atty. Henke's experience and detailed knowledge of the process helped me immensely through my divorce. As a father, she was instrumental in securing 50/50 placement with my minor children when the other party was seeking to award me zero placement. Atty. Henke also successfully protected as much of my assets as was allowable in my situation. My divorce could have been so much more stressful but for the thorough preparation, high level of experience, integrity and professionalism of Atty. Henke.

As smooth as a divorce can be...
Therese is a very experienced and delicate divorce attorney. She made sure to protect all of my interests while listening to my concerns and adjusting to changes that needed to be made to make things remain amicable. As good of an experience that a divorce can be. Thank You.

a father
I was never married but love my child very much. Therese protected my rights and laid things out to be more than fair. Thanks to Therese, I get to see my son all the time and child support is acceptable for both parties involved. She was able to make me see light during a difficult time and has helped with a couple follow up questions I have had over the years.

Client Review
The separation and divorce I had been going through for more than a year was very complicated. Therese gave excellent advice, was thorough and was a step ahead of things. She was very knowledgeable as to what we could do to avoid future problems. I would definitely recommend Therese to anyone having legal problems.
