Helping You Navigate the Legal System
A family law issue affects your life in profound ways. It can threaten your financial future and impact your relationship with your children. In this situation, you need sound advice and diligent representation to protect your rights.
I have been representing clients in Alameda and Contra Costa counties since I passed the bar. I have earned a reputation for strength, sensitivity, and creativity. I handle cases ranging from a single issue, to complex litigation.
If you choose my firm to represent you, I pledge to do everything we can to resolve your problem in the most positive manner possible.
My focus is finding areas where your business could be more productive and successful and then helping you develop the path to get it there.

Family Law Specialist
Henry has been a Certified Legal Specialist in Family Law since 2013.
In order to become a Certified Family Law Specialist an attorney must apply for such certification after demonstrating proficiency in the area of family law by completing the requisite experience and education in the field of family law. The attorney must have also taken and passed a written examination in the field of family law. This examination is similar to a one day bar examination but covers only family law related topics.
After becoming certified, Certified Family Law Specialists must continue to demonstrate a high level of experience and skill in the field of family law, fulfill the ongoing legal education requirements and be favorably evaluated by other attorneys/judges who are familiar with their work.
Focusing Exclusively on Family Law
I focus exclusively on resolving family law problems. Over the course of my career, I have handled virtually every type of family law case — ranging from uncontested divorces to custody disputes and property division involving substantial marital estates. I have particular experience in cases involving complex property issues, such as division of a business, division of real estate, deferred compensation, and other complicated property division matters. While I operate at a sophisticated level regarding the law, we always seek a common-sense solution that is workable yet protects my client’s interests.
My Commitment to You
I provide every client with compassionate counsel and diligent representation. Four rules guide my practice: I will listen to you and, more importantly, hear you— your needs, your concerns, and your goals for the future. I will explain the issues in your case and your legal options in plain language. With my counsel, you will have the information you need to make intelligent decisions about your case. When appropriate, I will attempt initially to achieve a successful outcome through negotiation. If the matter does proceed to trial, I will aggressively represent your interests.
