David Henson is an excellent lawyer and fine person. I know him to be of high character and he always makes the needs of his clients his top priority. I am proud to know David, and I recommend him highly.

David Henson and the attorneys of HensonFuerst represented me in a long, difficult, complex, and emotionally trying case. It was difficult for me to trust anyone, but I had heard good things about HensonFuerst, so I decided to talk with them. From the minute I walked in the door, the firm made me feel taken care of. In particular, David Henson was a voice of calm and reassurance. He listened to my story--the whole story. I believe my first visit took well over an hour. I was never rushed.
When it came time to hiring the firm, David Henson explained everything--my rights, my obligations, what I could expect from the process, what they needed from me, how long it all would take...everything.
David Henson kept me informed every step of the way. I never had to wonder what was going on because he gave me updates even before I would think to ask. HensonFuerst made sure that I took care of myself and my health while I was waiting for the outcome of the case. They made me feel like family.
I never thought I would need to hire a lawyer, and I wish my injury never happened. But David Henson and the other attorneys of HensonFuerst made the process as good as it possibly could be. When the going got tough, my lawyers were tough. When the medical side of the case became complicated, my lawyers hired specialists to cover every angle. When it came time for a court battle, my lawyers didn't back down. We ended up with a settlement without going to court.
To this day, I thank my lucky stars that I found David Henson. I found him to be compassionate, honest, forthright, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable about legal and medical topics. I have no reservations about recommending him and HensonFuerst to anyone seeking representation.

I attended law school with Atty. Henson and have also worked with him and Henson & Fuerst on a number of cases. He is definitely a great attorney; however, he's an even better overall individual and man of great character!
