During her last three years as a Senior Associate for AMLG, she has had many successes. During depositions, Ms. Henderson obtained an immediate dismissal from the plaintiff after obtaining an admission that the matter was barred by the statute of limitations. She had seven claims of successor liability dismissed in federal court prior to hearing by proving to the opposition that the evidence was inadmissible. Ms. Henderson is a lead part of a national defense group involved in litigation and is creating precedent in the area of statute of limitations laws in the mortgage lending industry. Finally, she has successfully attacked complaints on the state level with demurrers and motions to dismiss with repeated success and settled matters for under ten cents on the dollar at mediation.
