Penny Henderson was a joy to work with. In our initial phone conversation she was encouraging and very supportive of our journey of adopting through foster care. Mrs. Henderson took care of all the communication and bills to the court house and kept us in the loop. She was happy to wait for her payment from the state so that it was not out of our pocket. Mrs. Henderson went above and beyond and took wonderful pictures of us in the court room and joined us for the party afterwards. She made the legal part stress free and joyful!

I used Penny Henderson to handle my collaborative divorce. She was great. I interviewed several attorneys in town who specialize in collaborative divorce, and chose her because of her experience and expertise. She had worked in the legal field for years before becoming and attorney. I was so impressed that she had challenged and passed the bar exam, without going to law school. No easy feat for anyone, much less someone who worked full time. I was also drawn to her calm manner. She was perfect in a collaborative legal setting.
She was at all times professional with me and with the other parties involved. She explained up front what to expect and she spent time asking questions and making sure she understood all my issues. Her explanations of the legal issues were very clear. When I had questions or concerns, she would return calls promptly and always spent time making sure I understood. Her billing was fair and accurate, and about half of what my spouse paid for the same legal representation.
I would use Penny Henderson again.

I have worked in several law firms, alongside many lawyers over the years, but when it came to shopping around for an attorney for personal reasons, I was at Step 1. After going through a couple of very frustrating experiences with other attorneys, I found Penny, and I can say whole-heartedly that Penny is a cut above the rest. Lawyers in this country have a very negative reputation, and Penny does a LOT to reverse that impression. She renewed my faith that there are good, honest, practicing attorneys out there who genuinely care about their clients and who actually listen to what they are saying and asking. I am not only a happier client because of Penny's help and guidance, I am also a very grateful client.

I refer people to Penny without hesitation. She is experienced, skilled and compassionate. She is always prepared and appears to treat all her clients as being equally important. I trust her guidance on issues and would certainly refer friends and family to her with complete confidence.
