"We lean on Kevin for an abundance of legal work from general counseling to securities specializations as well as all of our contract work. Our company does not sign anything without Kevin thoroughly scrubbing, revising, and approving. From one-off funding contracts to long term supply agreements Kevin provides thorough and well thought out drafting, adjustments, and recommendations. His work has saved us from major losses on multiple occasions. He is responsive and timely making himself available early and late as we need. The most notable attribute is his willingness to talk through opportunities or liabilities and fully understand each scenario, providing constructive guidance with "easy for the layman to understand" explanations. Him and his contracts can go toe-to-toe with any other firm we've come across. Do your company a favor and use K Henderson Law the same way we do - for everything!"

"Kevin's the type of lawyer you always hope to find, but rarely do. He's thoughtful, concise, considerate of your time and input, and genuinely wants to understand how he can help. He has the gift of taking the maniacally complex and turning it into something easily digestible. I've used him several times, and will be using him again soon. I highly recommend his services."

"Kevin Henderson is incredibly detailed and thoughtful with everything he does. He has done a plethora of contract work for my company and I can't tell you how many times I've had other lawyers comment on how solid his contracts are. Not only that, he presumably saved my company from potential problems and pitfalls as he is astute at thoroughly inspecting contracts that have come our way and always provides excellent and much needed redlines. He's a solid listener and is great to work with. I feel lucky to have had him in our corner and would highly recommend his services to anyone in need."
