Looking for someone professional that truly cares about YOU?
We were desperate and needed someone that would hear our small voice in a huge system. We were originally recommended to call Mr. Gonzales in the same office, The professional staff helped us secure an appointment immediately. After our consultation, we knew this was the place for us and hired him on the spot. We met Mr. Henricksen at our second meeting and found him to be professional, personable, knowledgeable, honest, caring and helpful. Mr. Henricksen gave us his contact number and made himself available 24/7. Any time I contacted him, I always received a return call or message without delay. He always responded to any follow-up questions, tasks or requests, without our needing to remind him. He exceeded our expectations. He is not just an awesome attorney, he is an awesome person. If you have found yourself or a family member in need of an attorney, Mr. Henricksen comes with the highest of recommendations. Thank you for everything Mr. Henricksen.

Fights for you all the way!
He fought for me all the way til the end! He is great at what he does and explained what the state had on me, and reviewed the video of the arrest and looked for ways to fight for me! He never laid down for the state and never said, just sign and get it over with. I highly recommend christian and will refer my family and friends to him.

Highly Recommended!!
I can't describe the patient and capable attorney that handled my case. Throughout a year and a half of meetings, my breakdowns, and finally the trial date he was there. So many times I lost hope and felt like giving up but Christian was always there to calm my fears and reassure me. I was looking at a career ending conviction if found guilty but Christian believed in me and my innocence. When it came down to trial he was thoroughly prepared and the impact of his defense affected my life and future, not just a career. His preparation was obvious, on task, and effective and led to me being exonerated. I could not have had a better attorney that heard me and believed in my case. I trusted him thoroughly and he did not let me down. There are no words to express my gratitude and appreciation for him. He is honest, dedicated and trustworthy and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Saved My Life
I recently hired the Joe D. Gonzales Law firm to handle my case. I was charged with a state felony. Mr. Henricksen worked on my case many times and represented me at some of my court hearings. I recently hired this firm for the second time because I was not allowed to travel for my work. They got me a pass to travel anywhere in the USA for as long as I am on probation. Many firms may have only got me permission to travel within a restricted area and not for the entire length of my probation. This is the second time I hired the Joe D. Gonzales law firm and worked with Mr. Henricksen and I will hire them for anything else I need. What Mr. Henricksen and the Joe D. Gonzales law firm did for me: 1. Got me permission to travel within 30 minutes of hiring him after my court appointed attorney and pretrial services officer gave me the "run-around" for over 2 weeks. I guess they thought I was the International Man of Mystery and would catch a dingy to a safe haven. 2. Once I complete my probation I will not have a record on a state felony. 3. Took a $1500.00 fine off my punishment. 4. Filed a motion for me to travel while on probation anywhere in the USA.

Thanking God for Christian
My son was arrested for something he did not do. We originally had a bad attorney that did nothing but take our money. We endured about 4 months of that and had had enough. Christians name came to us from a card my son received inside and I made the call. It was the best decision we ever made! Christian was able to get things done and show the courts my son was innocent without trial. He was always available and that was so very important to us. I will never be able to Thank Him enough!! HIGHLY recommended!!

The best attorney I've ever hired...
Christian is an absolute pro. He is honest, patient, and was always available whenever I needed defense day or night. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him as he got me thru the toughest point in my life. To me it seemed like he took a personal investment in my case and fought for my freedom. I would highly recommend Christian to fight for your rights...thanks man you saved my ass!!! Case dismissed!!

Hope and Trust Towards Humanity
I define Christian Henricksen as someone you would be completely satisfied with not only with his services but his dedication and professionalism towards any of his cases. For the longest time I had lost complete hope and trust towards humainty but, Mr. Henricksen won that trust from me. I never saw anyone as dedicated by working beyond midnight hours and beyond weekends when needed. Mr. Henricksen made me feel that for once in my life their was someone out their that beieved in me, that the truth would prevail. Christian did not only bestowe that trust in my heart again but he made me believe again in humaity. Christian is someone that you know will never give up on his clients and a cause he believes in. Christian did not only prevail on my case but he earned a lifetime friend.
