Karin L. Henson

Associate Attorney

Albuquerque divorce attorney Karin L. Henson has always known she would practice in the area of family law and domestic relations.

When she saw people going through the toughest life situations involving their children, finances, property, and the closure of a relationship and transition into a new avenue in life, she knew she wanted to provide those people great representation to ease that transition.

Ms. Henson has both the heart and the vision required to guide clients through the divorce process.

“I am compassionate with the ability to see the path a case needs to take in order to reach a resolution that best represents the needs of a client through zealous advocacy,” Ms. Henson said.

Although every divorce case involves a number of challenges and emotional ups and downs, Ms. Henson promises to remain by her client’s side through each and every hurdle.
