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

These guys are AWESOME, I hope I never have to use them again but if I need an attorney in the future it will definitely be TJH LAW — Michael Wilson

After leaving the hospital with no money or insurance was denied surgery I made 1 attempt to another agency and they didn’t refer me to their specialists and doctors then I chose to withdrawal from that agency and after just one day of speaking to Thomas J Henry I already had doctors calling me with appointment scheduling availability same week then I went there and same-day prescriptions were prescribed I left that office and a chiropractor office is calling me 2 hours after to schedule a next-day visit …I’m so happy I chose him, thank God for THOMAS J. HENRY LAW — Nina Ross
