Dennis J. Bentley

Attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law's San Antonio Office

Mr. Dennis J. Bentley works with the senior litigation attorneys at Thomas J. Henry Law, representing catastrophically injured clients from the firm’s San Antonio office.

Mr. Bentley has played a key role in aggressively pushing cases through to multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts. Some of these cases involved trucking accidents where hazmat drivers tested positive on their post-DOT drug test for cocaine and marijuana.  Mr. Bentley also has appellate experience working on appeals to the Texas Supreme Court.  As an aggressive litigator, Mr. Bentley believes that no matter how tough the challenge, failure is not an option and that there is no problem that cannot be resolved.

Mr. Bentley received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the Western Michigan Cooley Law School where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.  Mr. Bentley was an Associate Editor of the Cooley Law Review, where he earned the John D. Volker Award for making the most significant contributions to the publication of the law review.

While in law school, Mr. Bentley worked as a Judicial Intern with the Honorable Judge Victoria A. Roberts of the Eastern District of Michigan.  During this time, Mr. Bentley perfected his writing skills as he was able to evaluate how law clerks and judges assess a legal argument from within the judicial chambers.  Mr. Bentley also worked as an intern with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office where he worked on cases in both State and Federal Court.

Before law school, Mr. Bentley received his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Michigan State University.

Outside of the legal profession, Mr. Bentley loves to travel and is a strong outdoorsman. Mr. Bentley spends most of time spare time hiking in the South Texas Countryside.
