Mr. Travis E. Venable was very helpful and understanding — Michael Perez

They are really great attorneys and very pleased with them, Travis Venable and the staff. And I am very happy. — Shante Martin

Being involved in a car accident that results in a serious injury is a very challenging experience. When I had the misfortune of finding myself in this exact situation, I asked people I trusted for advice on finding an attorney and it was clear I needed to go with the Thomas J. Henry Law Firm. Working with their staff and attorneys at the University Heights office removed all the legal worries and allowed me to focus on my health. As we closed my case, I walked away feeling better physically and very satisfied with the results of my case. Thank you so much, especially to Mr. Venable and Mrs. McClain, for all of your hard work and professionalism!!! Anyone reading this would be well advised to pay them a visit if you ever need representation. — M. Peral

Before I came to Thomas J Henry, I went to 3 other attorneys. All of them said there is nothing they can do. I reached out to TJH firm and they said no problem. I am completely satisfied and I suggest anyone to call them to go further. You will not be upset. I dealt with Mr. Venable and he is straight forward which means you are not guessing at what is going on and today I am in no pain and completely happy. 10 stars…… — Fredrick Miller

I really appreciate the hard work these lawyers did for me taking the time to help me not only overcome my accident but also be able to settle everything in the most possible easy way I wanna thank, Travis, Kimberly, Drew, and Kiara for helping me thru this case — Genevie Vigil

I am very pleased with the outcome of the case, especially the job that Mr. Venable and Mrs. McClain have done and I would recommend to many people the services of this law firm. — Joel Martinez
