His lawyer journeys included working for a Federal District Court Judge, representing Fortune 500 companies in litigation, and then refocusing his energy to help “victims become victors.” Henry now represents employees in class action, discrimination and harassment lawsuits. Numerous successful jury trials and appellate decisions bolster Henry’s lawyer career, including landmark case law which specifically cites his name. But, being a lawyer is not the happiest of careers.

The “Happy” part of his career started with a different journey through several bouts of strokes, surgeries, and cancer in his immediate family, Henry somehow found happiness. Through his simple “Happy Lawyer” concepts and personal experiences, Henry now consults and counsels clients on finding happiness in whatever career they are currently in, and to find it right now, because “Every day is a Great Day!”

One of Henry’s “Simply Happy Formulas” is: Happy = Money … another oxymoron.. And he teaches how when you are “Simply Happy,” you can and will generate more money.
