December 16, 2013 – Henry joined Galfand Berger in 2006. Since the day he began, Henry has tirelessly worked for our clients in the areas of personal injury litigation, employment discrimination, labor law and Workers’ Compensation. Henry is a supporting member of the team of Galfand Berger lawyers who have attained some of the largest, multi-million dollar client recoveries in Pennsylvania.
Indeed, Henry’s skillful lawyering has earned him a spot on the Pennsylvania Super Lawyer Rising Star list for the past three years!
However, there is more to Henry than his compassionate advocacy for our clients. Henry’s story mirrors that of generations of Americans. He arrived as a young child from Kiev, Ukraine, a refugee immigrant. He embraced all that our country offered, and ultimately, graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in International Studies, magna cum laude, from the University of Scranton and earned his law degree from Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law.
Henry is fluent in Russian and Ukrainian and takes an active role in the affairs of the Greater Philadelphia Russian-speaking community. He serves as the Vice-President and Member of the Board of Directors of the New World Association of Immigrants from Eastern Europe; is one of the founding directors of the Russian-Speaking Professionals Network; and is a Board Member of HIAS Pennsylvania. In 2013, Henry was featured as a keynote speaker at the first ever naturalization ceremony held at the National Museum of American Jewish History. And, Henry is an avid motorcyclist and motorcycle writer. On weekends you will find him riding his cycle through Pennsylvania’s beautiful highways and backroads.
