Henna is no stranger to embracing diversity while maintaining her own identity.  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.

Since beginning her journey in 2005, practicing contract, medical malpractice, general tort and disaster litigation, Henna has become well-versed in motion, trial and appellate practices at state and federal levels.  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.

In 2006, Henna’s family relocated to Houston, and this great city soon became her second home.  It became official when Henna subsequently married and 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.

In addition to being a premier litigator at the Firm, Henna also heads the Firm’s Personal Injury Division.  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.

As an added bonus to Houston, which boasts a rather large South Asian population, Henna is also proficient in spoken Urdu and Hindi languages.

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