Henry began his legal career at Graham & James, a preeminent international law firm in Los Angeles, in 1979.  He rose quickly through the ranks, and became a partner in 1986, and the managing partner of its largest and most profitable office before he turned 40.  After nearly 25 years at that firm, Henry joined one of the largest litigation boutiques in Los Angeles, which split up years later.  In 2011, Henry formed The David Firm® as a vehicle to serve the needs of his clients better. 
Legal problems are part of a business problem (or opportunity).  Sometimes, the business problem is just how not to win the battle (the litigation) and lose the war (spending too much management and employee time and too much in attorney's fees in light of the amount at issue).  Other times, the business problem involves issues much more complex and important than the legal problem-such as when a vendor tells you that it cannot afford to complete its work for you a week before you must deliver your product to your customer in time for the holiday season.  "Winning" at trial in a year (or more) against a bankrupt company will not salvage your relationships with your customers.  But finding a way to complete the work in a timely fashion will.  We always view the solution to the legal problem as part of the solution to the business problem.
