Mr. Fenley was extraordinarily patient, professional, and diligent in his handling of my divorce case. He was focused and deliberate when discussing legal strategy, but also friendly and understanding when it came to dealing with the more personal side of family law.

My husband and I hired John Fenley to handle a Step-Parent adoption and terminate the rights of the biological father. John was very knowledgeable and most importantly, very compassionate to our needs. It was a very lengthy battle and there were many road blocks; however, John kept us on the right path. He was very responsive to our needs, always communicated in a very timely manner and it was evident that he truly cared about our family situation. In the end, it was a much needed, wonderful outcome. I would highly recommend John to anyone going through a custody situation.

Our family needed advice on how to handle an estate, and we were going up against a BIG bank. The person we were dealing with at the bank seemed to have something against us from the start - like he had a chip on his shoulder. He misinterpreted the trust document, and we decided not to lay down and take it.
I did a lot of research on law firms in the St. Louis area, and found great reviews for RHP. Most of the firms I called wanted to talk about money right away. I found that RHP was more interested in finding out if it was a good fit. We found their fees to be SO much more fair than anyone else we spoke to. John Fenley is the attorney that we worked with - and we couldn't be more pleased. He has been so informative, and acted in our best interest.
If you want an objective, fair, and well-informed legal team - this is the best I could find.
By the way, John was able to avoid major legal fees, and the bank agreed with his/our interpretation of the trust doc. So we didn't have to create an estate, and avoided costly probate expenses. You can imagine what a relief this is to our family. Thank you John. I wish you continued success! Your integrity and fairness in our matters will not be forgotten.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have worked with John on several different matters as both an opposing counsel and as guardian ad litem. John has always been very professional, is obviously very knowledgeable about our area of law, and is very timely--both in court and with responses to inquiries. He is a pleasure to work with, and I would feel comfortable referring a family member or friend to him.
