I work with clients closely, day in and day out. I enjoy building relationships with my clients, helping them with their business and legal challenges, and celebrating their success. Because their success is my success.

Leslie Henry is a litigator and trial lawyer with a national practice advising oil and gas companies in toxic tort and environmental litigation. In her more than 20 years practicing law, she has tried cases in both state and federal court, bench and jury trials, and has extensive appellate experience. In addition to toxic tort litigation, Leslie has extensive experience litigating premises liability, personal injury, and wrongful death matters for clients in the energy and construction industries.

She also advises clients in the financial services industry on regulatory and operational issues.

Leslie has been appointed to the United States Golf Association Executive Committee. The USGA, founded in 1894, advances the game of golf, and conducts many premier professional and amateur championships, including the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open. Henry will serve a three-year term.

One of the pleasures of being a member of a litigation team at Adams and Reese is that this firm has been doing it for decades. Our lawyers know the history – cases, judges, courts – and we are able to use that knowledge to benefit our clients in all endeavors.
