We were co-counsel with Diane Henkels on a civil litigation action in tribal court and benefited from Diane’s knowledge of tribal law and tribal court practice. It was a pleasure working with Diane as a teammate because she is an excellent lawyer and we worked well together. Our client was happy with our joint representation throughout the two-year action and was pleased with the result. We look forward to being co-counsel with Diane again if the opportunity arises.

Diane has been my lawyer for about 4 years now. I especially appreciate the quality of work and the level of service she consistently provides. Diane is a trustworthy and conscientious person whose work embodies the triple bottom line of sustainability in everything she does.

Diane Henkels was instrumental to Lincoln County’s beginning a wind energy feasibility study near the Coast. We would not have progressed as we did in this project without her work and knowledge of the subject matter assisting Lincoln County. Her knowledge of the players involved and understanding of, and approaches to, meeting the challenges of launching such a study were instrumental in the creation of the proposed study by the County. Her continuing persistence and approaches to meeting various challenges continue to support the County's efforts for considering both wind and solar feasibility projects.
