James A Hennenhoefer

I have been practicing family law for 42 years. In that time, I have participated as counsel in thousands of cases. I still get a thrill out of helping clients to deal with what seems to be a 'mountain' of problems. This is accomplished by listening to the client and then proposing solutions to each problem. This reduces the 'mountain' to manageable hills. What is very challenging and most rewarding is helping people get through a difficult time in their lives.
