Meet with an attorney who’s well-versed in matters relating to adoption, international child custody, and U.S. immigration

From representing children in immigration court to international child abduction litigation in federal court, our legal team can handle a variety of challenges within our firm’s field of practice. The Law Office of Derrick J. Hensley, PLLC takes on primarily humanitarian or family-based immigration matters, including children’s cases, and international child custody matters.  We have a depth of experience in related areas such as child welfare, adoption, FOIA, and appeals, so that most of our cases we will be able to service throughout the processes that may be involved. Contact us to learn more about our whether our legal team could be a match for your needs.

We are proud that many of our staff speak Spanish fluently and have personal experience with immigration.  We can service other language needs, as well.

We require an initial consultation before taking on any cases, and we will confirm certain details to make sure your matter would fit within our practice areas.  (If your case falls outside of those areas or if we otherwise would exceed our capacity, we will do our best to refer you to a trusted colleague.)  We charge $250 for initial consultations, which can be by video call or in person at our office.  You’ll need to fill out some intake forms and provide copies of some documents in advance in order to have an efficient meeting.  You will not be our client until we have had a consultation and signed agreement for legal services.

During the consultation with an attorney, you’ll have the opportunity to tell us the necessary details about your situation in order to receive appropriate legal advice.  Although we can not promise everyone that we will have a solution to offer, we hope to offer everyone more certainty and peace of mind by offering a thorough legal analysis.  We may also offer you appropriate services at that time and can discuss terms, which frequently involve flat fees and payment plans in order to make our services more accessible.
