I highly recommend The Henry Law Firm! Steve Henry is a very compassionate, insightful, and tremendously skilled attorney. His service to me and my children was impeccable. I really appreciate his exceptional guidance and support as I walked through the worst moments of my life! He fervently fought for my children and I and made sure we were awarded what we deserved.

Extremely Knowledgeable
Mr. Henry was extremely knowledgeable and well prepared for all aspects of my case. He was kind and caring while being extremely professional and thorough. I came into my situation knowing next to nothing about the whole system, and Mr. Henry was able to explain it in a way that I could easily understand. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Call the Henry Law Firm
I am in a high conflict custody case that has been on going for 10+ years. I have had to file multiple motions to enforce visitation. I gave up my career to stay home with my children and don't have the financial means to hire an attorney on my own. I started calling around to see what it would actually cost to retain a new attorney. I had 2 paid consultations with Steve Henry and with his legal advice I was able to represent myself, protect my rights of visitation, and get the outcome I wanted and for a fraction of what I've paid in the past to other attorneys, who did nothing but take my money for a retainer and resulted in nothing. Steve Henry video conference with me on 2 separate occasions and both times were WELL worth the money. I would recommend him to anyone involved with any family court matter, who feels like attorneys are all the same. Steve Henry is the attorney everyone hopes to find when looking for real help.

Emergency Child Custody
We contacted several lawyers for an emergency child custody order and The Henry Law Firm, P.A. was the only firm to accept the case in such an urgent time frame. After speaking with Steve for the initial consultation we knew he was the right person for our situation. Throughout the entire process, Steve and his team were understanding, answered questions in a timely manner, explained our rights, and were available to guide us through sensitive situations. Steve represented the family in a way that eased our worries, lightened the stress load, and ultimately provided the results needed. We would recommend The Henry Law Firm, P.A. for any family law needs in the Overland Park, KS area.

Amazing lawyer!
I highly recommend the Henry Law Firm, P.A. for any child custody situations in or around Overland Park, KS. When our family was faced with an unexpected child custody situation, Steve immediately accepted the case when all other firms turned us away due to the urgency. The Henry Law Firm, P.A. displayed urgency, understanding, professionalism, and educated us throughout the entire process. Steve was always available to answer questions, concerns, and provide guidance when necessary. The Henry Law, P.A. exceeded our expectations and produced the results needed in a short amount of time.

Child Custody
When I started my child custody advocate search, I was very nervous. I had no idea who to look for or where to begin. A simple google search brought me to Mr. Steve Henry and I couldn't be happier. I truly believe I have won the jackpot of lawyers. Mr. Henry, from the start, has been so very attentive, helpful, kind, and funny. Every email I have sent has been responded to in the quickest manner and even on weekends (almost shocking considering the habits of most lawyers). This is just surface area stuff... The real nitty gritty stuff deserves a better rating than this will allow. Mr. Henry is so very detailed in his work. It is a direct reflection of what kind of lawyer he is- very passionate and intelligent. I feel so involved in my case because he is very informative. I feel like I understand the process better because of him. I never feel confused or have very many questions because he lays it all out in front of me. If you need a child custody lawyer, I guarantee Mr. Steve Henry will be your best option.

THE HENRY LAW FIRM, P.A.
Over a year a ago, I required child support representation. After reviewing my case, two separate high priced attorneys informed me that that my initial settlement was so lopsided that they would not take my case. Fortunately, I contacted Attorney Steve Henry online. After reviewing my case, he also reiterated that my child support settlement was lopsided, but also said that all was not lost. He informed me that his partner, Attorney Kyle Barscewski would be willing to take my case, as long as I understood that there was only a 50% chance of revising the child support settlement. I have found Steve, Kyle and Lisa Rodriguez (Legal Assistant) to be the consummate professionals who have a solid grasp of the area of law that they practice (child support, marital separation agreement, parenting plan and child custody). In my case, Kyle made a very scholarly and detailed argument on my behalf that impressed Judge Keven M.P. O’Grady and his clerk. The case took exactly a year and I ended up with a more reasonable child support settlement. 

I am very fortunate to have The Henry Law Firm, P.A. in my corner. They are truly a professional service firm. During business hours, the phone was always answered, detailed periodic emails kept me informed, finer points of the law were patiently and clearly explained. Most of our communication was via email, but phone or video chat were also used. In the future, if the need for an attorney arises The Henry Law Firm, P.A. are a phone call away. The mental anguish and financial cost of going to court, could have simply been avoided by initially hiring the right attorney. If you can’t settle out of court amicably, get an excellent attorney! As the old FRAM commercial used to say, “You can pay me now, or pay me later”. Steve, Kyle and Lisa thank you very much for all your hard work in representing my family and myself.

The Best!!
Any family legal matters, like child custody or navigating a parenting plan, are not often a pleasant experience. It can be an extreme rollercoaster of emotions. It’s imperative to have legal support that can help you stay balanced and centered so you make decisions that are grounded instead of impulsive and rash. Steve Henry is not only an incredible lawyer, but he is a wonderful man to know. He is heart centered yet undeniably talented and well experienced in legal matters, specifically family law services. I can’t express enough how much I support and encourage others to consider The Henry Law Firm, P.A. They are a rare find.

Everything we hoped for
My wife and I had been through two lawyers, both of which let us down by giving bad advice and missing details that could have been fixed and helped our situation. I found Steve on this site, and based on his reviews decided to get a consultation. Honestly, I was so down about my case that I had almost no hope. By the time I left the consultation that had completely changed. Not only did he point out things my previous lawyers missed, but he also laid out his plan for the case with every possible scenario that could take place. I hired him that day, and regarding this matter it's the best thing that I had done. He has excellent communication skills. In the courtroom and in communications with the other party as well as the court he showed that he has a very deep knowledge for family law and would very politely point out where they would miss something with examples of case law to back him up. He was smooth in the courtroom. He never got intimidated or flustered. When he spoke it was obvious that the judge was listening and even learning things he didn't know. Steve also had great communication with my wife and I. That was important to us. We always knew what was going on and often times what was probably coming up. Probably the most important thing I liked about Steve is that he looked at both my wife and I and how this case affected us. My previous lawyers didn't want to even talk to her, which really upset her because she was affected by the case. Steve would often touch base with her if he knew I was busy to not only fill her in, but also check on her. He'd answer every question she had, which meant a lot to us. Steve was worth every penny, and if you're looking for an amazing family law attorney you need to call Steve Henry.

Couldn't ask for a better family lawyer.
Having a particularly difficult and ongoing situation, I have been with Steve since 2009. He came highly recommended by another family law attorney. He is extremely professional, incredibly thorough and very knowledgeable in family law. He is very easy to contact and has always responded very promptly. Steve truly feels like your partner in all you go through in family court.

Excellent service, highly recommended
From our initial meeting through our final farewell, the Henry Law Firm provided excellent service. Steve and his associates are knowledgeable and empathetic. Steve is very transparent in the running of the firm, carefully setting expectations from the start and providing every choice available before decisions are made. This firm is truly your partner throughout any legal matter and their knowledge about family law inspires great confidence. Should the opportunity arise, I would not hesitate to recommend this firm to anyone requiring family law assistance. Should the need arise, I would not think twice about retaining their services myself.

Great Attorney
I was very happy with my legal experience at the Henry Law Firm. We accomplished the goals set by us both. Any extra time we had to spend on my case was because they wanted the job done right. Steve really knows the laws and how the system works. I trusted them and looking back, things could of gone differently if my attorney didn't pay attention to detail and explain that to me where I could understand. I appreciated them being thorough yet efficient with my dollar. I have recommended others to them and have had great response.

Excellent service, extremely knowledgable
Steve has done an excellent job of laying out expectations and defining a legal strategy. I've learned the value of a partnering with a strong attorney as opposed to considering an attorney as someone you hire to drive an outcome. Steve knows the laws in his field, understands the players and can outline a strategy for a successful outcome. I highly recommend Steve if you're looking for quality service.

Hard decision to divorce
It was a hard decision for me to divorce my husband of 41 years, and I'm grateful for Mr. Henry guiding me through each step of the process. He was very thorough and organized, and made sure I had the proper documentation for everything, including my military benefits. After much back and forth and spending much more than I hoped to, I was very satisfied with the outcome. I felt it was fair for both of us and met our needs.
