If you have a complex set of circumstances that require solid experience, Jim is your man. If you want an attorney who knows more about family law than many judges, Jim is your man.
He elucidates facts eloquently and completely. It is almost worth it just to see him in action. If you think your case if going to end up in court, you want this guy on your side. Keep in mind, I said "almost" worth it. There are no winners in a divorce. If you want a fair deal Jim can help you. Regardless, I hope your spouse doesn't find him first.
You get what you pay for so bring a fat check book and expect to feel some pain. Worth it? Better than the alternative. There is nothing easy about divorce so you may as well have the best on your side. They don't come any better.

This office handled a very contentious divorce for me from 2000-2005. They also handled a support modification motion that just ended. An actual trial with live testimony occurred. Rolf Steeve handled the proceedings brilliantly. He kept me from shooting myself in the foot. He also destroyed the opposing lawyer without any vindictiveness or flashiness. He was like Gregory Peck in Mockingbird. Leslie also handled my ex-wife's testimony expertly. Marcel also negotiated a great deal with opposing attorney.

I hired James Hennenhoefer and his firm to represent me thru a very contentious divorce. They did an outstanding job of guiding me and represnting my interesst. Unfortunaltey the other side of the case was unreasoanble and we were not able to settle. Therefore my case went to trial. It was at this time I was very happy that I had Jim on my side. He is an outstanding litigator. He is very respected by the leagal community. I was extremly happy with the judgment. I would highly recomend his services.
