When you need a skilled, experienced and strong advocate, contact Ryan Henson.
Ryan Henson and Millie Ibarra with Bevis, Thiry, Henson & Katz helped our family with a sensitive family law matter. They were patient, kind and available to answer our many questions. They guided us through the unknown and complexities of the legal system. They helped us understand the criminal proceedings and how best to engage with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. They were strong advocates for our daughter and grandson. Ryan was open with his communication and helped us be prepared for each step through the lengthy legal proceedings. Millie was there to help us understand with dedicated ongoing, open communication. Phil and Krista also provided their views and assisted when needed. They are an excellent, dedicates team. We highly recommend them when you need a strong advocate with experience. Todd and Pamela Christensen

Straight Shooter
Ryan is personable, a real straight shooter, timely in his endeavors with reasonable rates and he always does his due dilligence therefor the cost is worth it. My wife and I hired him for a custody case and I recently consulted him regarding a criminal case, both encounters with satisfactory result. With a broad field of legal knowledge, I would recommend Ryan to anyone in need of legal council.

Good guy
Ryan is honest, its hard to take but he will be upfront with you and tell you what he thinks he can and cant do. Of course its up to the judge but Ryan will do what he says he will do. I will call him again if i need another lawyer.

Combat veteran's point of view.
Mr. Henson was on top of everything in my case. He always keep me well informed about what was going on and showed personal caring for me. I was never miss lead or unaware of the situations that were being played out. He stood strong in the court room and I always felt that he was in charge and respected by the judge. Highly knowledgeable about criminal law... In closing, I would never use anyone else to protect my rights and families from the courts than Ryan P Henson. Semper Fi...
