Bradley M. Henry is a trial lawyer at SANTORO & GRAY, LLC focused on wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury and commercial property loss cases. In 2016, the US Supreme Court sustained a $63 million trial verdict and $ million judgment that Henry won with a former law partner, against a global pharmaceutical giant for devastating, life-long adverse drug reactions suffered by a child. See Reckis v. Johnson & Johnson, 471 Mass. 272 (2015), cert. denied, 136 S. Ct. 896 (2016). From 2018 through 2022, he served as Co-Liaison and Class Counsel for the plaintiffs in a record-breaking $143 million dollar settlement of the Merrimack Valley Gas Explosion disaster case against Columbia Gas and NiSource.

After his first year of law school, Henry joined a traditional civil law firm in 1989 and initially defended airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aviation interests in federal court, before transitioning to plaintiffs' practice. From 2006 to 2009, he served as Plaintiffs’ Liaison Counsel in Boston's “Big Dig” tunnel ceiling collapse case of DelValle v. Bechtel, a products- and construction-related wrongful death case that ultimately settled with 15 defendants for $28.1 million. Before that, Henry was the primary handling attorney of the college alcohol hazing death case of Krueger v. MIT from 1997 to 2001 as well as the commuter rail cardiac death case of Allen v. MBTA from 2002 to 2005. Henry’s practice has included plane crashes, mid-air collisions, complex product and weapons cases, refinery explosions, mass shooting tragedies, hazing deaths, building / bridge / tunnel and other construction collapses, MBTA, railroad and other transportation disasters, electrocutions and gas explosions as well as nursing home and pharmaceutical cases. Henry speaks regularly at seminars and conferences around the country on media, the law and handling high-profile cases. He has been voted to Best Lawyers in America each year since 2012 (and named "Lawyer of the Year" in 2019, 2021, 2024), has been named to Super Lawyers of New England and of Massachusetts each year since 2006 and has been a Boston Magazine's Top Lawyer each years since it first published in 2020. Henry speaks regularly at seminars and conferences around the country on media, the law and handling high-profile cases.

Forever Grateful
When my family faced an unthinkable, tragic loss, it was heartbroken and lost souls who are forever grateful for being referred to Brad Henry and the law firm of Meehan, Boyle, Black & Bogdanow. We soon understood why he is held in the highest regard by his peers and others. His knowledge, excellence, professionalism, dedication are, in my view, unmatched and only rivaled by his concern, care and compassion for his clients and their loss. He expertly guided us, making a foreign process understandable to us laymen, and always with patience and kindness. It wasn't just the legal process that held his interest; he was also interested in who we lost. We laughed together at fond memories shared, and were comforted by Brad when the tears were shed. He was not only our champion, but our lost loved one's as well. The journey was long and difficult, but we always felt relief and comfort knowing we were in the hands of Brad Henry and associates. I hope anyone facing a tragic personal loss will find Brad Henry. I would not hesitate to recommend him for not only his legal expertise, but also for his personal touch.

If you have to go through a difficult emotionally draining case this is the Lawyer that you want to guide you through it
Bradley Henry is a brilliant lawyer. I was very impressed with his approach to my case. He is a great strategist. He thinks of possibilities that I would never have thought of. He is very meticulous and his use of technology to help others to understand what can be a very complicated issues is outstanding. He is not only a brilliant individual, but an outstanding person. Brad is able to help guide his clients though what is a extremely difficult and emotional process. I can't thank Brad enough for what he has done for my family & I.
