Henson Adams

Henson Adams is focused on counseling and defending clients in labor and employment and business matters. Henson takes a results-driven approach. Although he foremost believes in helping clients reduce risk of conflict, Henson is ready to fight for clients when a dispute does arise. He has represented clients in employment, environmental, and commercial litigation in both state and federal court.

Prior to joining Haynes Boone, Henson graduated with honors from the University of Texas School of Law, where he enjoyed success on moot court and mock trial teams. He also interned for the Texas Supreme Court and U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Before practicing law, Henson taught algebra at an at-risk high school. The problem solving and communication skills Henson developed through teaching have translated into his legal practice.
