David Henry is a Partner in the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office, focusing his practice on complex insurance defense litigation. David has the unique background and litigation experience to handle both third party insurance litigation and first party property insurance defense litigation. He also has experience engaging in commercial litigation.
David defends a wide array of third party insurance and general liability claims. He has gotten tremendous results for his clients by obtaining voluntary dismissals when an adversary has realized they cannot prevail, by summary judgment, at trial, and on appeal. David’s third-party defense experience includes defense of clients sued under theories of premises liability, negligent security, construction accident, construction defect, automobile and trucking litigation, product liability cases, toxic tort cases, medical malpractice, directors and officer’s liability, professional malpractice, Section 1983, class action lawsuits, and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The potential exposure in many of the cases David has defended is extensive due to alleged wrongful death or to alleged injuries such as quadriplegia, paraplegia, Traumatic Brain Injury, Reflect Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, and other severe neurologic injuries.
In addition, David’s practice includes first party property insurance defense litigation, including coverage and bad faith litigation. He assists insurers in all aspects of coverage disputes, including responses to civil remedy notices of insurer violations, pre-suit investigations and coverage evaluations, declaratory judgment and bad faith litigation. He defends property insurers throughout Florida in first-party coverage matters, where many of the claims involve sinkhole, windstorm, fire, mold, theft, and water losses.
David graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Political Science. He went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from St. John’s University School of Law in Queens, New York, where he participated in Moot Court, was an Editor for the New York International Law Review and was awarded for his excellence in, amongst other things, Pre-Trial Advocacy.
