Erin goes above and beyond for clients!
I met Erin late in the game for my case. She came on as my legal counsel and was brought up to speed immediately and took charge in no time. Erin always made time to meet in person or talk on the phone when I had questions or concerns. Erin worked tirelessly to resolve my case and was very communicative every step of the way! Erin provided the best legal support I could have hoped for and went above and beyond to reach a resolution in my case, one that I had not thought possible. I am so glad I found Erin and was lucky enough to have her as my lawyer. You will not regret hiring her!

Best Lawyer Out there
My family and I hired Erin for my family member's case. After consulting with her we were sure we wanted her to represent him. She's so professional and great at what she does hands down one of the best lawyers out there. She saved my family member's life and also our whole family. She's seriously so great at what she does.

Erin Hendricks. A Light During Dark Times!
Our family was in need of an intelligent, professional & companionate criminal defense lawyer and we were fortunate to have been referred to Erin; she did not disappoint! When the future of a loved one is in jeopardy you want someone that has a proven track record of success and that knows the criminal system process and all the local players (judges, prosecutors, etc.). With Erin's knowledge, communication, and relentless fighting spirt she made what was a very trying time seem manageable. With any case there are a multitude of uncertainties and variables but with Erin we had 100% confidence in our representation and her abilities.

Ms. Thomas
I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional legal representation I received from attorney Erin, facing a daunting criminal case. My husband was on 10 yrs. probation and at the time Erin was hired he was 9yrs. in on completing his probation period and got a new charge, which was a violation. My husband was told if he get convicted of any new charges he would face a great amount of jail time. Erin provided clear and insightful guidance, ensuring I understood every step of the legal proceedings. My husband had been sitting in jail for 2 months but after Erin was hired, an agreement was reached with the courts in a matter of 3 weeks and jail time was not an option. If you are considering legal representation, look no further. Erin have the “Experience” and she is locked in with who she need to be locked in with to get the job done!!!!

A great attorney and a great person!!
My family and I hired Attorney Erin for a totally unexpected case. After our first meeting of consultation itself, we were sure about hiring Erin. She was highly professional, treated us with respect, and showed empathy. She explained everything clearly to us whenever we had questions. During the whole process, she worked hard, prepared and presented every support document needed and achieved the best result for us. Even after the completion of our case, she gave us guidance whenever we needed some help related to this case. Not only she is a great attorney, she is also a great person! We will always be grateful to her.

Truly the Best
Like it was yesterday "June of 2018" I tearfully came across Ms. Hendricks via Avvo. I felt like my life was in shambles! She didn't allow me to wallow in that state of mind and immediately stated that I needed to come in for a consultation. I am a no none sense kind of person, so when I meet that kind of person I connect immediately. This attorney is the absolute best at what she does. Not one time did she say the words "I can't", or make me doubt her capabilities. She handled my case and had it closed within months. This review has been a long time coming(due to Life) but I've never forgotten her diligence and expertise. Erin-Bless you and thank you

Heaven Sent Attorney
Attorney Hendricks handled my case and was one of the best attorneys so far that I've ever came across with she was on point and up-to-date and gave me updates while my incarceration. She was amazing at my arraignment and my sentencing. I will be forever thankful and appreciated because of her hard work and with the help of the good lord above I am now home with my children. I would highly recommend Attorney Hendricks as your attorney!

The Best
Erin Henricks is quite possibly the best at her job I’ve ever heard of, let alone seen with my own eyes. She was realistic, empathetic, and a fantastic lawyer—the trifecta! I am well educated (though not in law!) and her intelligence, fierceness at her job and overall goodness as a human being is so impressive! I seriously cannot express how much she has helped me and made things okay for me.

She helped me with 3 felony charges!
Back in September I was having a bad day, long story short I ended in police custody and in jail the correctional officers' severely beat me. The system then placed 3 felony charges against me, I was blindsided and when I got out of jail had no idea how I was going to handle this, I had never been in legal trouble. Erin was god sent, she understood my situation and explained to me the process. It was a lengthy period but she took care of me and pleaded for my case and all my charges were off the hook!

Always went the extra mile to help!
I hired Erin Hendrix to help me with a case that would’ve been a class A misdemeanor and that could have put my immigration status in jeopardy. With help of her friend Jeff Boncek they were able to bring the charge down to a class C misdemeanor that wouldn’t affect my immigration status. From the beginning she answered all my questions and gave me advice on what to do to help get the case resolved. Not only did she keep in touch with me to make sure everything was ok but she also kept in touch with my immigration lawyer to make sure the outcome of the case would not affect my immigration status. On top of convincing the DA to give me a charge that wouldn’t affect me as much as the original charge, they were able to keep me from having to pay $5,000 that the person who made the claim wanted as restitution. I ended up just having to pay the court fees & the fine for the class C misdemeanor. I still have probation but they let me know once that’s complete & the case is closed they could help me get the class C misdemeanor expunged from my record.

Thankful for God's provision for my mentee through Erin
I have been mentoring a young man from an underprivileged area since he was in 6th grade. Unfortunately after graduation, he got into some trouble with a roommate and was accused of aggravated assault after a particularly nasty fight. Erin was graciously willing to provide indigent defense to my mentee. When we met with her, she was cool and professional, explaining in detail everything the court would need from us. She had a plan to defeat the indictment by getting the grand jury to no-bill (dismiss) the charges. She worked with us to prepare statements testifying to the character of my mentee and presented those to the court. In the end she succeeded in no-billing the charges. I'm very thankful for Erin's help, and that God provided her as our lawyer. Were it not for her, my mentee would most certainly still be living under aggravated assault charges for an event that was in reality mutual combat.
