Job well done! En español, too!
I am very glad to have found Mr. Henry, when searching for an estate planning lawyer in Houston for my elderly mother, whose English is limited. Mr. Henry provided caring, competent services and even suggested needed documents that we had not thought of. His pricing is straight-forward and reasonable, and he was willing to accommodate the document signing on a Saturday morning, since it is not very easy to get two needed witnesses to take time away from their regular work schedule. I will surely spread the word about my satisfaction with Mr. Henry, when my family and friends need the services he so professionally provides.

Helpful staff
The staff was very helpful and kept me informed on the process of my mother’s will as it moved through the court. I would use Mr. Henry again if the need arises.

Honesty, Patient, & Understanding Attorney
Mr. Henry prepared my will and power of attorney documents, and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. He was very understand and thorough. He took the time explain any concerns I had, and he also offered me advice and provided me with information on different options that would be applicable to my situation. I tell everyone I know about him and the great service he provided to me. If you want to make sure all your ducks are in a row for your love ones, then hire him today!

My Attorney--Young, Gifted and Talented!
My attorney is "up and coming!" No job is too big or small. He is serious, personable, and committed and teaches his clients as he meets their legal needs. While being relaxed and professional, he makes one feel most comfortable as he works with them on their case.

Estate Planning
I contacted Mr. Henry for estate planning services for my Mother. He thoroughly explained the services he offered with estate planning and costs. Mr. Henry also explained what services would best fit my Mother's needs. We met several times in person, via-e-mail and over the phone. Each time, he made sure we understood not only the process but that we understood the forms for the Last Will and Testament, Medical Power of Attorney, Directive to Physicians, Family and Surrogates, the General Warranty Deed Reserving Enhanced Life Estate and the Power of Attorney. Mr. Henry was very knowledgeable and very compassionate during this process. I highly recommend him to anyone and would utilize his services again.

John B. Henry, lll
John Henry is a very knowledgeable and conscientious, attorney. He never seemed too busy to talk to me and if I had to leave a message, he always returned my call as soon as possible. I felt he put forth 100% for me at all times and kept me well informed every step of the way. He completed my cases successfully.

Went to John B. Henry, III for estate planning. Total waste of time! Took seven months for him to produce incomplete documents. Spent over $5,300 for stuff that I'm having to shred. Had to start over and go to a different attorney to get the job done properly. My new attorney completed the job and had all documents filed within two months. If you have time and money to waste then he's your man. Otherwise get your legal services elsewhere.
