Eased a very stressful situation
I had to leave my ex very suddenly, moving away from my home in California. When I arrived in Wisconsin, I knew I needed to start the divorce proceedings to break all ties, but wasn't sure how to even begin in such a convoluted situation. Chris was very understanding of the nuances of my situation and very patient with my inability to directly contact my ex. Laura (Chris' paralegal) was personally encouraging and warm towards me. They treated my case with attention to the real person (me) involved - I never felt like a checklist item to them. They helped me get everything sorted out and the whole process was quicker and smoother than I'd thought possible. I would absolutely recommend Chris Henry to anyone going through a divorce.

My Divorce Attorney
I received both professional and compassionate work by Mr. Henry during my divorce in 2011. He utilized a wonderful team approach during a very overwhelming and uncertain time in my life. I would highly recommend him. Laura was wonderful and so helpful everytime I needed to contact the office.

Best decision I could have made
Chris Henry was absolutely everything that I could have asked for in a lawyer during my divorce. I would say that a divorce is probably one of the most difficult things that anyone will have to go through in their lives, and Chris was there for me every step of the way. He explained exactly what each step was, and walked me through the process. He was available whenever something came up, day or night. I felt confident going into court with Chris, knowing that we were fully prepared and ready to take on whatever we needed to that day. Chris and Laura kept me grounded throughout the entire process, when it would have been easy for me to go completely off of whatever emotion I was feeling at the moment. Chris made it possible for me to move on to my happily ever after, and I am so grateful. There are so many things that set Chris apart from the rest, and if I ever need council in the future, he'll be the first person that I call. Together, we made a great team and got through it. My family and I are so grateful to have had him around during that difficult time. He made it possible for us to move forward, and I know that I can still contact him anytime if I needed something or had a question. I recommend Christ Henry to anyone who is looking for a lawyer who will treat them with respect, be completely honest, and be that support system that people so desperately need during a divorce or custody hearing.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Chris and I recently represented clients in a divorce matter with high financial stakes and emotions. Chris diligently represented his client and was extremely well prepared. As opposing counsel, I found Chris to be reasonable and courteous. A judge I recently appeared in front of stated " civility is a sign of strength." That statement characterizes Chris."
