Henna Ghafoor

About Henna

Since beginning her journey in 2005, practicing personal injury, medical malpractice, general tort and disaster litigation, and business litigation, Henna has become well-versed in motion, trial and appellate practices at state and federal levels.  Henna has also successfully litigated employment discrimination cases in Galveston and Harris Counties. Henna prides herself on winning the unwinnable case, and she has a proven track record in her fields of practice.  This, in part, is attributable to Henna’s unique ability to understand the needs of clients and to translate those needs into RESULTS. Henna’s motto is that, “If you don’t believe in your case, no one will.”  As such, she is fully invested in every case she takes on.

In 2006, Henna’s family relocated to Houston, and this great city soon became her second home.  It became official when Henna subsequently relocated here herself.  Henna was welcomed into the Nguyen & Chen family in 2014, as a Senior Litigation Associate, where she thrived utilizing her expertise in civil litigation while further developing her professional portfolio. After less than two years at the Firm, Henna was made Partner and is presently a Senior Partner with the firm’s civil litigation division, with a focus on complex business disputes.

A life-long resident of New Orleans, LA, Henna was educated in the Jesuit tradition from high school through law school.  However, being the youngest daughter of Pakistani immigrants, she remained connected with the culture and traditions of her ancestors. Henna is functionally fluent in Urdu and Hindi languages, which has been useful in catering to Houston’s abundant South Asian population.

In her spare time, Henna enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, dancing, and taking two minutes per day to think about nothing.
