Abigayle Hensley is compassionate and purposeful, and has dedicated her career to assisting clients with family law and elder law issues. Because she understands that her clients’ lives are changing significantly, Abigayle talks to her clients, listens to their concerns, and helps them understand their options. “I try to make the process as easy as possible and as clear as possible,” Abigayle says. “It’s important that they understand the legality of the situation.”

At BB&C, Abigayle practices all areas of family law, and represents clients in complex and highly-contested divorces that involve high assets, business valuations, retirement accounts, military concerns, and custody evaluations. She also helps elder law clients with estate planning, the arrangement of assets and long-term care, and the organization of Veterans Affairs and Medicaid benefits. As a trained GAL, trained Family Law arbitrator, and a trained Collaborative Law Professional, Abigayle promotes amicable resolutions when possible and provides zealous advocacy when litigation is necessary. “At the end of the day, I strive to understand my client’s emotions so that I can help them find peace with their situation,” she says.

Before moving to Lafayette, Abigayle practiced in Carmel, Indiana, for six years. She graduated from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2008. During law school, she participated in the school’s Pro Bono Program and worked for Craine House, an alternative sentencing program that serves non-violent women offenders and their young children.

In her free time, Abigayle loves spending time with her family, hiking, and listening to live music.
