Steven Donald Henry

About me

I am the principal attorney at The Henry Law Firm, P.A., a boutique family law practice established in 2008. This law firm purposesfully distinguishes itself by providing detailed and thorough information to each of its clients so that every client is educated about their specific family law matter and the process involved through the court system. Our goal is to reduce client anxiety by providing the highest level of commitment and dedication to our clients’ various family law matters.


Prior to founding the firm, I worked as a senior attorney in Kansas City, Kansas for a state wide non-profit, public interest law firm dedicated to assisting low income Kansans with essential legal services in the areas of family law, bankruptcy law, and social security disability law. My responsibilities included supervising the legal work of pro bono attorneys, and I especially took delight in mentoring law school students who served in an internship capacity.
