"He is very down-to-earth and accepting of all people. I trusted John because he was just like me, he wanted me to know who he was and for me to understand he was different from what I may have perceived of him as an attorney."
If you are looking for a lawyer who is full of love, has passion, dedication, a sense of humor, is loyal, invested, smart, honest, trustworthy, responsive, goes beyond the call of duty, and is determined, then John C. Hensley, Jr. is your man!
I am the mother of a beautiful 11-year with Cerebral Palsy. My child was born after 8 minutes without oxygen to her brain, 28 minutes without a heartbeat, a crushed right hip, and stretched nerves in her right shoulder and the inability to suck, all due to a medical mistake. I prayed on that day that if God let her live I would take care of her however I had to.
John heard my family’s story and knew the deal that I had made with God. He looked at me saying, ‘What you are about to face with raising your daughter is not going to be easy and will probably be for the rest of your life. Let me see if we can make that journey a little easier for your daughter and your family.’
John gained my trust when he visited my home in Charlotte, North Carolina. He wanted to see my family in our environment. The day he pulled up in front of my home, I watched the big white man get out of his car, knock on my door, sit on my couch and hold a regular conversation with us. He never once seemed uncomfortable being in a low-income, high-crime, predominately Black inner-city community. He is very down-to-earth and accepting of all people. I trusted John because he was just like me, he wanted me to know who he was and for me to understand he was different from what I may have perceived of him as an attorney.
Whether he knows it or not … when we first told him our story, his eyes were full of tears … to this day he is still invested in the progress of our daughter and the success of our family. This case was closed over 5 years ago and when we call with a question, he is still very responsive.
