About Us
Henson & Talley represents major insurers, national trucking companies and self-insured companies in the investigation and defense of claims and lawsuits. We truly understand insurance defense, and as a result, have built a reputation for anticipating and vigorously defending claims for damages.

In all insurance defense cases, we are guided by our principal goal of providing the highest level of legal representation and counseling to our clients in the most efficient manner possible. Each of our cases is carefully managed and supervised to ensure that litigation costs are minimized.

Much of our success is based on our decades of experience in the legal field. We compliment our in-depth understanding of insurance defense with thorough preparation and research of each case. Through careful analysis of your insurance policies and procedures, our attorneys are able to quickly and correctly analyze issues, risks and exposures for litigation. We then use this information to put together a legal strategy tailored to protecting your specific interests.

This process is managed by a single insurance defense attorney leading your case. That attorney will remain in contact with you throughout the process, keeping you informed and updated on its progress. Your lawyer leads a team of experienced and competent attorneys and staff, all working together to get you results.
