Note Collection/Fraudulent Transfer Case
We hired Mr. Henke and his firm to handle a legal matter for us and were very pleased with his performance throughout the representation. He and his associate acted at all times with the utmost professionalism, diligence and courtesy in pursuing our case. As the matter progressed and issues complicated, he demonstrated a talent for simplifying them and identifying alternate solutions for efficient and just resolution of the matter. We always felt confident that we had the upper hand with Charlie as our counsel.

contractor dispute
Charlie was very knowledgeable of the law. He was flexible in working out a plan to address my problem. He was effective in getting a response from the adversarial party when other efforts had failed.
