I'm a Canadian who was traveling in the USA. I was stopped by a trooper on the HWY for apparently speeding. The Trooper, completely degraded me, accused me of dealing illegal drugs, and questioned my ability to afford the vehicle I was driving. Yes again, I was stopped for speeding? After being verbally interogated for 30 mins he arrested me and printed out 3 citations; Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangerment and an infraction. At this Point I was nervous and felt quite intimidated. When I got home I searched for lawyers and talked to many on the phone who couldnt give me any conclusion except pleading guiltly to 1 criminal charge and paying the infraction. I then got intouch with Henry. He spend the better part of 1 hour on the phone with me and took on the case with confidence. After the first hearing, Henry was able to negotiate a dismissal of both criminal charges and I had to pay a $550 infraction. I was really quite pleased with his work and how efficient he was. I would refer Henry to anyone who needs the help of a lawyer who is professional, honest and most importantly knows how to get the job done!

I had a very bad spring back in 2012. I rolled my wife's car during a bit of nasty weather. I was confronted by some, not so nice police officers, and ended up getting in a scuffle. Things went quickly from bad to worse and I was quickly arrested. I discovered Henry's services through the bail business I utilized to get me sprung from jail. It was a fortuitous discovery! While I didn't walk away from the charges or found innocent, I did get a plea bargain from the DA, thanks very much to Henry! He stated more than once that he would go to bat for me and fight the charges, which was very much appreciated. At the same time he informed me of the risks. I really didn't want a felony charge to stick, I had been a professional businessman prior to this incident and wanted to continue to be so. A felony would've destroyed my future! I took the plea bargain, did my time (21 days or so) and moved on. Henry's help was money spent well! He is a genuine person that actually cares about his clients! If you are looking for someone to represent you that has amazing credentials and the care and concern that you deserve as a human being, then Henry is your guy! Trust me! He is your guy!!!!

I was introduced Henry because I had no idea whom to hire when I was in charged for DUI, very scared and nervous. Henry listened to me very carefully and gave me the power that we could definitely solve the problem. He is very ambitious, not overwhelming, and organizing; most of all he really knows what he is doing. Not only as a client and the lawyer, he loved to listen to me whatever that is, even my personal stories and feeling so he could put himself in my shoes.. He was also very patient when I had so many questions even when I called his personal cell phone, and he got back to me right away with happy voice when he missed my calls. The one thing that I really appreciate him is that he did not have to go to court with me after the case was actually closed, he showed up and put me on the list earlier so I didnt have to wait for an hour.. Even thought the case was over, he still was willing to take care of the case with no extra pay. I thought it was very nice of him that he just doesn't let me alone dealing with the case afterward.. Not only he has such a great personality, he is also very responsible and knowledgeable. Of course I was not the only client of him, but Henry always remember what is going on with my case, even all the details, he would love to answer all my questions. Whoever looking for a knowledgeable but very warm-hearted lawyer, he is the one you should go for. I think the good communication between the lawyer and the client is very important as well as the ability lawyer can win the case. I am very satisfied working with him, and he is a great person, a lawyer. Truly thank you Henry.

I have known Henry for 16 years and have always found him to be the brightest of lawyers and kindest of heart. He is dedicated to his work, and treats everyone with the respect and courtesy they deserve. His kindness translates very well to judges, jurors and prosecutors alike- it serves him well in legal argument and connecting one-on-one with each juror. Any client would be lucky to have Henry represent him, he does a fantastic job and gets great results.

I endorse this lawyer. I've known Henry since law school and he was a professional even back then. Henry has since distinguished himself as both a complete professional and a tenacious litigator. I've seen Henry in trial, and he's a force to be reckoned with. I wouldn't hesitate to refer and/or ask Henry for coverage (which means I trust him with my own clients - there's no higher compliment an attorney can give).
