Tom Henson: Super Lawyer

Via my brother John's blog, Wondering Thoughts, let's call this off-topic post a point of personal privilege to boast that my father was named to Texas Monthly's list of "Super Lawyers" this year! Congratulations, Dad! John wrote:
Henson My dad, a.k.a--"Affidavit Face," is in the recent Texas Monthly, showing up on the list of Super Lawyers 2007. Here is the listing in the magazine, stating what everyone has known for 40 years! He has always been the best and one who earns the respect of those who know him--especially those who are plaintiffs.

For the record, I know nothing about the moniker "Affidavit Face."

A couple of the other lawyers in this photo - especially Tracy Crawford and the legendary Jack Flock - I've known my whole life and are like my own family. Crawford was also named one of TM's "Super Lawyers." Congratulations one and all! I'm proud of you!

Order up select bottle of conqac and a couple of Ashton cigars.

Celebrate his 40 years as a practicing attorney. He's got stories.

What kind of lawyer is he? Is he a criminal lawyer?

No, he does corporate defense, product liability, did a lot of asbestosis stuff when it was big, and the firm has represented a lot of prominent E. TX oil and gas interests for many years. I think now they're doing more intellectual property stuff over in Marshall - tort reform changed their case load quite a bit.

Really? Tracy Crawford? I have always found him to be rude and lacking scruples. I guess this is law we are talking about.
