Our experience makes a vital difference

Our team and staff was led by experience. Herbert Henderson, the founder of the firm, had more than 50 years of experience in all aspects of personal injury, discrimination, family law, criminal defense, and civil litigation.

Henderson was the first black student to graduate from the George Washington University Law School (1958), and completed it in less than three years, his daughter and law partner Cheryl Henderson recalled. When he wasn’t in class or studying, he worked at the post office and drove a taxi to support his family, which then included two young daughters. His family expanded to include two more daughters. Of his four children, three are attorneys at Henderson, Henderson and Staples of Huntington — Cheryl Henderson, Sherri Henderson and Gail Henderson-Staples. His other daughter, Leslie Henderson-Williams, is in pharmaceutical research.

A 1997 editorial in The Herald-Dispatch opened this way:

Herbert Henderson - Founder

Herbert Henderson – Founder

“When the full history of race relations in West Virginia is compiled, few, if any, names will be written larger than that of Huntington attorney Herbert H. Henderson.”

He was president of the West Virginia NAACP for 20 years, and was an advisor and counsel to the organization at the national level. He was lead attorney in the 1961-1965 Marshall University students’ desegregation case, John Hereford vs. White Pantry Restaurant. That resulted in the White Pantry and Bailey’s Cafeteria being opened to all races. Henderson also won the NAACP vs. West Virginia Department of Public Safety, which allowed African-American women to be admitted to the State Police.
