Senior Counsel

Austin Henderson is an up-and-coming trial attorney with in-depth experience in all phases of civil litigation. His current practice focuses on representing corporate clients in product liability defense, warranty, commercial litigation and complex civil litigation matters.

Austin has defended claims of wrongful death, product defect, negligence, fraud and breach of warranty, among others.

During these trials he became intimately familiar with drafting and arguing motions in limine and drafting trial briefs. He also conducted direct and cross examination and handled witness lists and jury instructions. In addition, Austin defended a national distributor of plumbing supplies in litigation alleging defects in plumbing supplies, HVAC products, pipes and fabrication products.
