“Jess is fantastic! Very up front and highly knowledgable with a strong community network behind her. Always does an outstanding job.”

“Leah Henderson is one of the best attorneys I’ve had. She actually cares about the client she is not just worried about getting paid sometimes I thought she was defending her little brother when she defended me. She is a very nice and caring person and will put everything she has in defending you I promise. I usually hate lawyers but Leah is the best out there I recommend Leah Henderson for your attorney any day of the week.”

“Jessica, thank you so very much for all that you’ve done for me regarding my DUI. The plea agreement you brokered worked out better than I could have hoped for. Your quick response to emails and calls, expert legal advice, and court savvy were so important in obtaining a plea that was beyond what I even thought we could get. I’m very satisfied with your legal work, and very fortunate to have you represent me. I would recommend you to anyone who needs legal representation.”
