HensonFuerst Attorneys is proud to announce that David Henson, our own managing partner, was honored by the American Association for Justice (AAJ) during the 65th Annual AAJ Conference in New York on July 10, 2011. He was given the prestigious Heavy Lifting Award to recognize his commitment to the organization and his continuing efforts to recruit new members to the AAJ’s Leaders Forum.
“I am honored and flattered to receive this award,” said Henson. “It means a great deal to be recognized in this way, and I’m proud to be part of such a respected organization devoted to ensuring the rights of others.”
The AAJ’s Heavy Lifting Award was first given in 2008 as a way to recognize the extraordinary efforts of AAJ members. The recipients have gone above and beyond the call of duty to benefit numerous AAJ programs, campaigns, and causes.
The AAJ created the Leaders Forum in 2000 to ensure that every person has access to justice. This group of firms helps the AAJ protect the civil justice system by increasing financial resources for public relations, legislative advocacy, and public education efforts on Capitol Hill and in the court of public opinion.
Gibson Vance, President of the AAJ, said:
“David has given both his time and resources to the American Association for justice. He is truly a champion of justice and, as president of the AAJ, I owe him a lot for all of his service to help promote the civil justice system.”
As a tireless advocate for civil justice, David’s work has benefitted not only the AAJ and civil lawyers everywhere, but also those who hope to see fairness in the legal system should they ever find themselves in need a a lawyer.
On behalf of the entire HensonFuerst team and our clients, we also want to say thank you to David Henson. His actions have a direct impact on the legal system, and he is an inspiration to lawyers and, indeed, anyone who wants to make a difference in the world.
