Custody Case
Jeff is a professional, understanding, and thorough attorney. He is very approachable, personable, and very easy to communicate with. Jeff and his excellent team worked very hard with my husband's very difficult custody case to achieve the outcome he deserved. My husband and I highly recommend Hensley Legal Services for any divorce, separation, family, and child custody issues. With Mr. Hensley you will receive a FAIR legal outcome!

Exceeded Every Expectation
Jeff Hensley is sharp, intelligent, determined, and exceptionally talented at litigation. He provided the results I was looking for while surpassing all of my expectations along the way. Jeff is tremendously thorough, which directly impacted our success in the courtroom. Additionally, I was consistently comforted when we spoke by how plugged-in to my situation he always was. With every credence I recommend Jeff Hensley as, hands-down, the best family law attorney.

Sharp, Prepared, Dominating
I have used Mr. Hensley's services through my divorce and throughout multiple custody battles. His utmost professionalism, intricate knowledge of the law, attention to every detail, and ability to produce fair and favorable outcomes are some of the reasons that I have referred him to friends and family without hesitation. Jeff has demonstrated genuine concern for my situation and has been a much needed source of legal expertise. Though I hope not to need an attorney for this matter again, he is on my speed dial!

The Best of the Best!
Mr. Hensley is a very intelligent man. A man of great dignity and composure . In every situation that came about, Mr. Hensley was compassionate and understanding. He remained calm and very professional while in and out of court. I would definitely recommend Mr. Hensley.

best money I've ever spent
Mr. Hensley represented me in my custody case and although there want much involvement from the opposing party he always had a plan B and C just in case. Anytime I've had a question or concern I've never had a problem getting in touch with him or him with me. Very trustworthy and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed any kind of family law representative.

Jeff Hensley is an amazing attorney!
Jeff helped us so much after we were being dragged through a horrible fight. We love him so much and he helped do what 4 other attorneys were completely incapable of. My case was very confusing and there was a lot to it and he helped straighten it all out and complete our adoption. He is amazing.

Jeffrey Hensley best attorney
I have had many attorney dealing with my custody issues. Jeffrey is the only one who has helped me out over and beyond. He can always be reached, works very hard on my case, and actually cares about my issues. He doesn't lie to you, he let's you know the truth. He has been my attorney for over 3 years now and I will not go anywhere else.

His office was informative and honest and I believe he could help me even if his retainer was a bit high for me.

Not confidential and challenged my character
To begin, I made it very clear not to email or call me due to my volatile marriage situation. I told them text are fine till we have a consultation. They told me the consultation was $150 for 30min or $300 for an hour VIA text. I still agreed because I heard him speak on the radio KMOD, but the day of the appointment they called, yes CALLED, to cancel the appointment. Luckily, I was not in ear shot of my kids and my spouse had left for a moment, literally a 30min window, I rushed to my room to finish the call. I explained to the girl that called I was considering cancelling anyway because I did not feel I should have to pay up to $300 to meet my possible representation. She stated "Well you scheduled an hour not a free consultation." Which was not accurate. I was given no other option. I then told her I was not given that option, but we can reschedule for the free consultation. She said tomorrow, Tuesday, was available, but what day would work for me. I told her Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday would work. She asked if Wednesday would work. I said no I just told you I am free Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. She scheduled me for Tuesday. Later, while with my spouse Tracy text me that they will not tolerate the way I have spoken and they are cancelling my appointment. What! The girl that originally CALLED told me that she is sorry and does not usually do this job. I even told her it was not her fault. Even though this could have caused a major police incident I was desperately trying to avoid. Anyone who has been in an abusive and controlling relationship will explain to you how hopeless it feels. After a near miss with a very unpredictable person and having to make sure my children don't hear me talking about divorce I am then insulted by someone that was not involved speaking about my behaviour. Which was also a great time having my spouse asking who I am texting with. Thanks Hensley Law! I already feel trapped and scared of my future, but you sure made the situation worse. What a horrible way to deal with people. I hope to catch you on the radio someday. Sense that is where I heard of you to begin with. I would love to hear your public explanation for why you would treat a potential client that way. Really anyone for that matter! I will add this review everywhere I can once I don't fear my name coming out.

Jeff Hensley is a crook
Don’t listen to any reply from this scheister. I had a high dollar divorce case, and Hensley and his co-Attorney (Julie Henson) did EVERYTHING they could to drag this out forever. Julie Henson was the ex wife’s attorney. One postponed pre- trial conference after another. Asking the same questions over and over again in discovery. Questions I answered more than once It actually felt like MY lawyer was working for the other side. Hey, whatever keeps the cash registers ringing, eh Jeff?

Run Save Your Money and Time
Jeff Hensley isn't someone I would never recommend. He took on my case in 2014. He talks a big game but is absolutely horrible in court. He just kept taking money and not progressing with Anything. He wouldn't return phone calls or answer any questions. He even wanted to remove himself from my case after starting. If it wasnt for his determind assistant attorney I would be in court another 10 years. Jeff had my divorce for 3 years. His assistant attorney Mr. Thomas Ryan had it finished in three months. Jeff will not answer questions, he will not go with what you want. He will go with the opposing counsel Against you. RUN and never hire this attorney. I still owe money that I should not.

Client
I do not feel Mr Hensley did my case any justice. Was over custody, child support. After 2 1/2 years child support was finally ordered.. Drug case out 5 years spent alot of money with outcome that DHS could of handled for free and better. Would never use this lawyer again!
Response from Jeffrey Hensley August 28, 2015
Unfortunately the above is not accurate. We got the client the requested custody she wanted and the order for child support within six to nine months. Since her ex was self employed it took even longer to get the money coming to her since an income assignment was not an option. What this client also neglects to state is that it did take some time to finish the case due to the client not working with our office. She also neglects to tell that I gave a huge discount on her bill to help her out because it was the right thing to do. Additionally she contacted me about representing her son in his upcoming divorce!
