Henson Fuerst is proud to share that Partner David Henson has been chosen as the 46th president of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ).
The NCAJ is a non-profit, non-partisan association that has remained dedicated to empowering a strong community of trial lawyers to protect people, prevent injustice, and promote fairness for more than 50 years. The organization, which is the third-largest Trial Lawyers Association (TLA) in the country, works hard to ensure that all citizens of North Carolina have the right to equitable and fair justice.
Henson accepted the position on Thursday, June 18, at the NCAJ’s Annual Convention, which was held virtually this year via Zoom due to the ongoing pandemic. Henson’s yearlong term will begin on July 1.
For more than two decades, Henson has been actively involved in the NCAJ. Most recently he has served on the Board of Governors, as vice-president of several executive committees, and on a large variety of other committees and task forces.
A firm believer in giving back to the community, Henson has also served on multiple boards for local non-profit organizations.
Focusing his practice in the area of eminent domain and land condemnation, Henson finds great purpose in helping those across the state of North Carolina to fight for their rights.
During his upcoming tenure, Henson plans to work with the NCAJ to ensure that their trial lawyer members have the knowledge and skill to continue fighting for all state citizens.
Henson also plans to implement important measures to ensure the organization’s long-term success. Such measures will include membership diversity and growth, financial security, relevant educational programming, a strong and resilient advocacy program, and increased membership engagement.
As the world continues to rapidly evolve, Henson hopes to help the organization evolve right alongside it.
Henson Fuerst is honored to have David Henson selected to fulfill such an important position and cannot wait to see the difference he will undoubtedly make.
