About the Speaker

Tom W. Henderson’s practice is dedicated to representing policyholders in suing insurance companies for bad faith and getting insurance companies to pay what their policies promise to pay. Henderson spent the first 20 years of his practice representing the insurance companies, answering their questions about whether the policy provided coverage for various claims, and even defending them when they were sued. Tom uses this unusual background to his clients’ advantage because he knows where the weak spots are, where the smoking guns are hidden and how best to structure his clients’ cases to maximize the potential of getting the insurance companies to pay.
