See what our clients have to say about their experience working with their legal team in Austin:

I was rear-ended by an attorney of all people! The guy that hit me was a lousy human being as I was stopped and he drove right into me…..and he was texting, admitted it, and then did everything he could to avoid paying the damages…..including the two herniated discs in my back that have caused me great pain. Thomas J Henry and his staff won my case ($500,000) without us going to court. His team was professional and very sympathetic to my pain and assisted greatly throughout the process. Everything you see in his TV commercials is the real deal! If you need an attorney, don’t hesitate. He’s the best there is. Robert W. — Bob Wills
