There is simply no other way to say the tremendous value of an attorney that is there for you when everything that matters in this world is on the line. My gratitude was more than earned, and I highly recommend Mr. Henry because he is competent, with an experienced perception giving him an accurate advantage with his work. He will show up for you, especially for what matters, not just for the paycheck. I feel like he cares about his work, which is what makes him an excellent lawyer.

My Super Lawyer
Carlos is hands down the best of the best! One of a kind, no BS, tell you like it is. If you want sugar coating lol you got the wrong guy! I like truth and that's what you are gonna get! I want someone who will put everything they got into getting you the results you deserve and that's what he does! Watching him in the courtroom in action is exciting! You know without a doubt that this man is doing what he was made to do!! I recommend him to anyone! I was sitting in Mabel Bassett women's prison on a 17 yr sentence, hopeless! In comes Mr Henry and 2 months later was sitting in a steakhouse, laughing, loving life again! I owe it all to you Carlos!

Al Capone of the courtroom
Carlos Henry is a great attorney he goes to Great lengths to make sure that his clients get the representation that they need and deserve he goes out of his way to make sure that Justice is served in his clients go home, I owe Carlos Henry my life! Thank you very much Carlos I wouldn't have traded him for even a more expensive attorney, why get expensive when you can get effective! If you want a good attorney that knows his stuff that actually puts forth the effort and does his best to make sure that his clients go home, Carlos Henry is a boss the other attorneys do not want to face him in court because they already know he is a winner, so no matter what your charge big or small Carlos Henry is the man for the job I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

No Prison
Appointed lawyer wanted me to take 5 years in prison. Hired Mr. Henry and after a few court hearings put in drug court. Reasonable fees and allowed me to pay out the fee. Great lawyer.

Good attorney. Good communication, willing to let you set up payments. Willing to handle multiple counties. I have hired Jim 5 different times for 3 different people…… and I’d hire him a fourth if I needed him.

Mr. Henry is a shark in the courtroom. He will fight for you and also help guide you to make the best decisions in your scenarios. He was available to answer any questions or concerns I had through the entire process. I would highly recommend Mr. Henry as an attorney and will definitely use him again, if the need be ever arises. Excellent work.

Good Lawyer 5 stars
Got me out of a warrant and is great at keeping me out of jail. Shows up out of Oklahoma city which is good for me. It was good I ran into him when I did or I would probably still have a warrant or in jail. Thanks

An awesome person and a more awesome lawyer
Mr Henry took my case even though I was from California. He worked with me even though I didn't have all the money to pay him up front . He worked his magic and made my case pretty much vanish. He's an excellent lawyer and an exceptional person . I am forever grateful.
