About Henry Insurance

Henry Insurance Service was formed over 30 years ago and our goal is to be more than just an insurance provider. Instead, we are a trusted advocate and a resource for our clients. Melvin Henry, our founder, was so dedicated to this philosophy that he included “service” in the name of the agency. We strive every day to live up to the standard that he set so many years ago. As an independent agent we realize that one size definitely does not fit all, which is why we represent a number of carefully selected insurance company partners.

While our company has enjoyed a long history of excellence in identifying, analyzing and fulfilling the needs of our clients, we are equally excited about our future. We are proud of what we have accomplished, but even more committed to meeting the significant challenges that lie ahead. Our mission is to build long term relationships with our clients which will allow us to understand their business and personal insurance and risk transfer needs.

We are locally owned and operated and proudly serve the members of our community.

While the cumulative experience of our staff of 18 is well over 150 years, our agency is represented by a diverse age group of youthful, energetic employees. While we are a Baton Rouge-based independent insurance broker, we serve all of south Louisiana; we are also licensed in South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas.

What is Different About Us?

When you make a major purchase where do you like to buy?

  • From a person who sells only one brand?
  • From a telephone representative who you never meet?
  • From a knowledgeable expert in your local community who understands and sells many different brands, and can help you find a combination of price and value for your individual needs?

Many people don’t realize there are big differences in insurance agencies. When they buy insurance, they are choosing one of these three options. Captive Insurance Agents work for just one company and sell only one brand. Telephone Representatives do the same, and sell “at a distance” over the telephone.

Henry Insurance Service is a vested member of the local community. We represent hundreds of different insurance companies. We can compare coverage and prices offered by these companies to find the best possible value. We do business face to face and are here for you, as your advocate, in your time of need.
