Very experienced and well-respected attorney
David Henderson is an extremely competent and experienced attorney. He was particularly adept at finding the right experts to work on our case which proved crucial to a favorable outcome. More importantly, David got us the answers our family needed to move forward with the healing process. He was very professional and it was evident he was very well-respected even amongst opposing counsel. I would very strongly recommend him to anybody seeking legal assistance.

Outstanding Practice
Law Office of David Henderson sets the bar high for lawyers in my book. From the day I met him until present day he has been very active with the case and is constantly checking in with me on the process and never leaving me out of the loop. David and his assistant Teresea are very genuine people and I am honored to have known them for the past 3 almost 4 years. Words cannot express my gratitude for the both of them.

Outstanding Lawyer
David represented my when I was in a bad car accident. He was relentless in his pursuit of the case. He obtained an outcome and settlement far in excess of my expectations. He is a great advocate for his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

rating David Henderson
I have practiced law in Alaska for over forty years, and have dealt with David Henderson on a professional basis for the past five years. He is the most ethical attorney I know, & one of the most competent in the field of plaintiffs' personal injury representation. He has an excellent trial record and has obtained many jury verdicts and settlements in the seven figure category.

Personal injury Attorney | May 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"David is a dynamic, highly talented trial attorney. His level of perseverance is unparalleled. David really connects with juries and he has had phenomenal verdicts as a result. He is a great advocate of the law and very good friend. I heartily endorse him. Victoria McFadyen"
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"David is a fantastic trial lawyer. He will fight aggressively for his clients and he will generate results. I would hire David in a heartbeat, and recommend that anyone do the same."
Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 16
Relationship: Friend
"David is an excellent lawyer. His eloquence and empathy allow him to be an effective communicator with both judges and juries. If you find yourself in need of legal representation, give him a call. You'll be glad you did."
Wrongful death Attorney | Mar 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I'm an attorney with nearly 40 years of experience handling and trying cases in Alaska. David and I have consulted on countless cases, and we have tried one challenging case together a few years ago. David has received training from Gerry Spence, keeps up to date on the law as it develops, and is a great trial attorney with a number of large verdicts in hard cases. He is honest and puts his clients' interests first. He has made good law before the Alaska Supreme Court. David is as committed as he is ethical."
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 06
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"David Henderson is one of the most extraordinarily compassionate and selfless human beings I have ever known -- let alone as an attorney or professional. I consider it one of the great treasures of my life to have known him and to have worked with him for ten years now. I've done so as his independently-consigned researcher and writer. In that role, he has given me what amounts to an "ongoing workshop" on how to prosecute civil claims, on how to defend criminal cases, and on how to cultivate excellence in any legal pursuit. I rate his judgment, instincts, technical know-how, and professionalism as of the highest grade, and would encourage anyone -- client or counsel -- to participate with him on a case and see if what I've said here isn't absolutely genuine. Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I got into legal trouble, or had to have an attorney represent me in court . . . The answer that comes to me is instantaneous -- David Henderson -- "he'd be my best hope.""
Personal injury Attorney | Mar 03
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Truly "the lawyer that cares," David genuinely cares about his clients; and gives personal attention to every matter. His verdicts (many in excess of a $1 million) in some very difficult matters reflect his attention and dedication."
