Professional service and expert experience
Handled my very complicated divorce with consistent precision and care. My case was able to be closed with mediation, which I wasn't expecting. This was accomplished by Mr. Henry's masterful planning and understanding of the law. I highly recommend his services.

I had just turned 62 and found myself unemployed for the first time in my life. After several months of job search, I was getting worried. I had several thousand in savings and did not want to lose it so I signed up and started receiving my Social Security payment. My credit cards kept growing and I ended up with over $30,000.00 in dept. I kept up with the payments until my savings ran out. I did not know what to do. I discussed my issue with two credit counseling agencies. Both of them said that a Chapter 7 bankruptcy was my only way to recover from this. I was very lucky that I was referred to Christopher Henry from one of the agencies. I went for a consultation and we agreed that Chapter 7 was the best option for me. I cannot say enough about Chris and his staff for the help they gave me. Chris explained, in great detail, how we would proceed with this. I had many questions and Chris responded to my emails almost instantly. Chris explained to me what would happen when we went to the meeting with the Trustee. He was again perfect. I would refer anybody to Christopher Henry. He made this entire process seamless.
