I was illegally arrested and detained in Harris County. While incarcerated, I was appointed with Ms. Henley who tried to convince me to accept a guilty plea. Fortunately, I could afford bail but not an attorney. Therefore I studied my case, myself. During my studies, I realized how completely innocent I actually was.

I was charged with a felony for child endangerment. I found Ms.Cynthia Henley on avvo and had a consultation session and requested her to be my attorney on this case. Once she was my attorney, it took her 1 session to get the case dismissed.
Honestly, I did not believe that this case was going away without a trial. Given my cultural background and family situation, getting this case off was exteremly critical.
I had 1 session with Cynthia. She gets all the details you have to offer and works her magic. I am so grateful to her for having worked on my case and getting it dismissed.
Thank you Cynthia

One of the best lawyers I've used, she was my court appointed lawyer when I managed to get myself arrested at court for missing court. Having no lawyer she was my court appointed lawyer, let me tell you that she knows what she is doing and does a darn well job too. She worked with the prosecutor and managed to DISMISS my case for trespassing. She is straight to the point type of lawyer, would definitely recommend.

With Cynthia as my lawyer, I was able to get "no bill" for my case. She is professional, understanding, and very knowledgeable of the law. She listened to my case entirely during the free consultation and after I hired her, she immediately set an appointment to discuss the next thing to do. With her expertise in law, the truth prevailed and the grand jury dismissed the case as "no bill". I was charged with aggravated assault with deadly weapon. I defended myself against a dangerous person but ended up being the one with a case against me. Using an unbiased approach, Cynthia presented the facts and the grand jury saw that it was a case of self-defense. The duration of this case was 3 months. After the facts were presented, the prosecutor realized that he was defending a mentally ill person. After many attempts to contact his client to verify the truth, the prosecutor also realized that it was indeed a case of self-defense. From the first meeting, I could already tell that Cynthia is a down to earth person who is passionate about helping others. I am lucky to have come across her on this AVVO website and hope that this positive review will also help others in finding her.

I had a theft case, that was originally charged as a felony. Of course I was concerned that I might be in a situation I could not afford or be put in jail. I contacted Cynthia, and she of all lawyers was extremely honest, and realistic with me from the gecko. The prosecutors kept changing dates on the case, and she kept working hard to lower the punishment on my case. Well going back and forth for about 4 months she was able to get them to resolve on a misdemeanor instead of a felony. Now I am trying to work on getting it sealed from record!! Thanks again Cynthia that case changed my life in a better direction.

Cynthia did a superb job of representing me to a jury and made sure the truth got out there about my case. She gathered all the evidence and provided an excellent service and in the end I was found not guilty. You better believe I have her number saved just in case. I would highly recommend her to anybody seeking legal advice and services.

Cynthia was an amazing, diligent, knowledgeable; I was lucky and grateful to have her represent me. She never gave up and she pressured the DA to dismiss my Felony Theft charge from a previous employer. I have never been in trouble with the law so you can imagine how scared and clueless I was regarding all of this but Cynthia reassured me and always was honest about the case and where it stood at all times. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone; she saved my career and life! Thank you Cynthia and I will always be forever grateful for all your hard work and dedication.

My Ex lied and had a restraining order placed against me. There is no way I could have represented myself and I think you need an attorney like Cynthia in your corner when you are being falsly accused. Other than doing an excellent job fighting for you in the courtroom... Cythia is a down to earth person who is easy to talk with and won't make you feel uncomfortable about an already tough situation. If you need a lawyer to defend you I highly recommend Cynthia.

Our teenage son made a mistake by entering a neighbor's home with some other kids while the owners were out of town. The owner's children grew up with ours so the kids did not realize the significance of their poor choice. They had spent the night at the neighbor's home many times before.
The neighbors were very upset upon return (as they should have been). They called the Police and had my son arrested.
Even though what the kids did was wrong, it was not "breaking and entering". The family was upset and wanted all the kids in jail. A very difficult situation to say the least.
We engaged Cynthia for help. She was thorough, understanding and well prepared at all times. She asked hard questions to uncover the truth and never compromised on her integrity.
When the court date finally came around, Cynthia negotiated with the prosecutor that a criminal record for our son was the wrong thing to do. She stood up for our son and would not budge. While the other kids involved were cutting deals with their attorney, Cynthia stood firm in what she believed was right. She would not allow a fine young man to suffer for a poor choice he made.
Our son was given community service with no conviction on his record. The final outcome of a very difficult situation was a success.
I highly recommend Cynthia to family and friends.

I would highly recommend Cynthia for anyone seeking a criminal lawyer, especially in a domestic violence case. I was charged with “assault on a family member” and Cynthia got the charge DISMISSED!! thank god!!. This was a very difficult ordeal for me, considering i am in the professional workforce and this type of charge on my record would have been detrimental to my career.
Cynthia was the second lawyer i hired for this case, and she was very diligent to know all aspects of the event and took endless notes to prepare for the event we would go to trial, considering i wanted nothing more than “not guilty” or a dismissal.
Luckily we didn't go to trial, the DA dismissed the case, and the reason my case was dismissed had to do with the way cynthia would fight for me in her conversations with the DA. She would consistently challenge all charges brought against me, and the DA finally decided the case was not worth pursuing and moved for a dismissal. Awesome job!!
To anyone considering Cynthia, all i have to say is this woman will fight for you, she does not like to lose.
Thank you Cynthia, you brought peace and sanity back in my life. i am in debt to you.
