Karin L. Henson
Ms. Henson was born in Colorado and raised on the Ute Mountain Ute Reservation until her parents closed their general store, gas station, and café in Towaoc, Colorado. She attended college at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado in 1991 until she transferred to the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 1994. She graduated there in 1996 with a Bachelor of University Studies to accommodate all of the credits she had amassed as an overachiever at Fort Lewis College and the University of New Mexico. She attended law school at St. Mary’s Law School in San Antonio, Texas in 1998 and transferred to the University of New Mexico School of Law in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she graduated in 2001 intending to go into family law as a career. While at both law schools, Ms. Henson was on the law review at each school and participated in community outreach programs.
She began her family law career working six short months for an Albuquerque attorney before being approached to take over a well-established private practice for a 30-year attorney who had some medical issues and could not continue to practice law. Ms. Henson kept her private practice until she went to work for the Child Support Enforcement Division. She took a few years off from the practice of law to start a family and married into a blended family with six children she loves and holds dear. Upon her re-entry into the practice of law in 2013, she decided to work for the Second Judicial District Attorney’s office prosecuting domestic violence, DWI, and DUI violations. Ms. Henson missed the practice of family law and accepted a position with the Law Offices of Lynda Latta in April 2014. Her eclectic experience, expertise, and warm personality are what make her a great family law attorney.
