What Henry’s Clients Have to Say: 


I highly recommend Henry Fasoldt for anyone looking for a criminal defense lawyer. When you are going through a highly stressful situation (like I was), you need someone like Henry who is calm and well-informed. He responded to my phone calls and emails very promptly, was always willing to meet at a time convenient for me, and explained complicated legal jargon in an understandable way.

His skills and confidence during hearings and the trial were very impressive and allowed me to rest a little easier at night.

Most importantly, because of the time and dedication Henry devoted to my case, I was cleared of any wrongdoing!

I cannot express the gratitude I have for you. I don't know where to begin: it's been a long 15 months for both of us. You have given me back my life I can now see a future for me an most important I can now see m son's and and grand baby any time I want.

Throughout this entire process you have been outstanding to work with. From your knowledge of DUI law to your follow-up on court procedures. The process is a long process but throughout the process you have given me hope. You have told me what the process will be and always followed up on what you said you would do. When I called you always called me back and gave me an answer to my questions no matter how small of a question it was. I can't say enough about your knowledge of the law but you are on top of your game when it comes to defending a person with a DUI charge...
