Nelson T. Hensley
Nelson T. Hensley was born in Cuero, Texas. Growing up in a small south Texas town taught Nelson a very valuable lesson: treat other people’s business like it is your own and success will be achieved. Nelson carries this philosophy into his law practice—treating his clients’ business as he would his own business. Nelson maintains relationships with many clients who have been his clients for more than 30 years.
Nelson attended the University of Texas at Austin where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History. He then attended law school at the University of Houston, graduating with his Juris Doctorate and becoming licensed by the Supreme Court of the State of Texas in 1978.
Throughout his nearly 40-year career, Nelson has handled a wide variety of cases touching on numerous facets of the law. In 2008, Nelson joined with fellow attorney and friend, Cory Krueger, to form Hensley & Krueger. Nelson’s vast experience is invaluable to the firm, and he brings a passion for helping others that clients have come to know him for.
He is admitted to practice in all Texas state courts, and the United States District/Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, United States Court of Appeals (Firth Circuit), United States Tax Court, and United States Supreme Court. Nelson served on the United States Bankruptcy Court Standing Trustee Panel from 1977 to 1993 in the Southern District of Texas.
Nelson also has an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell for his high ethical standards and professional ability.
I first contacted Cory by phone to get some ideas on how to navigate and resolve my specific case. He was patient in helping me understand my options and the steps necessary moving forward. When I met him in person, he was professional, honest and involved me every step of the way. Thanks to Cory, I was able to protect my estate, and my family and I are fortunate to have worked with him.
Mr. Krueger is an attorney with integrity and ethics. He has been our family attorney for over 10 years and has guided us through business deals, real estate purchases, leases, and estate and probate issues. I trust his advice and guidance he gives, and his interest is always for his client first and not the fast money. As long as I need an attorney ---Mr. Krueger is the man!
I use Cory for a wide variety of business and personal needs. He is well versed and efficient in many areas including but not limited to entity structures, probate issues, and estate planning. I cannot recommend him or his firm highly enough.
