Craig A. Henderson began his career working for one of the largest civil litigation law firms in Las Vegas, Nevada, gaining experience in both Nevada federal and state court in all areas of civil litigation, including complex business and contract disputes.  After a few years practicing commercial litigation, Craig was recruited to work in the litigation department of one of the largest personal law firms in Nevada, where he continued to gain valuable experience in all aspects of personal injury litigation, including trials, arbitrations, and mediations.  During his time in Las Vegas, Craig represented well over a thousand injured clients fighting for compensation after being injured in hotels, casinos, commercial properties, and car crashes (in addition to working on cases in numerous areas of civil law including anti-deficiency, real property/partition, and family law).  Craig has litigated complex injury and product defect cases, and Craig has experience standing up to insurance companies and corporations of all shapes and sizes.

After working as a lawyer in Las Vegas for 18 years, Craig wanted to return to Texas, where he attended Baylor University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science in 2000.  At DeSouza Injury Lawyers, Craig continues to represent injured people in oilfield incidents, slip and fall/premises liability cases, and motor vehicle crashes involving 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles.  Craig is well versed in legal research, writing, and federal and state civil procedure, pre-trial litigation and procedure, trial, appeals, and judgment enforcement.

In his free time, Craig enjoys playing softball and socializing with his co-workers at DeSouza Injury Lawyers, and spending time with his wife and three children camping, being outdoors, riding ATVs, attending sporting events, practicing Tae Kwon Do  (Craig, his son, and daughter are all first degree black belts), and taking his family to see and experience the many amazing sights throughout the great State of Texas.  Craig attended law school at University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California, where he served as a managing editor of the McGeorge Law Review and graduated with honors and as a member of the Roger J.
