I have been a client of Brendan Hennessy for over 4 years. I was fortunate to meet him while he was working with another law firm. I followed him to the start of his private practice because he was compassionate, responsive, and sincere. I was extremely stressed due to the years of unlawful treatment by my employer. Brendan consistently responded quickly to my concerns with great advice that reassured and calmed me. He is a diligent, intelligent, and tenacious attorney. As promised, he remained on top of the case from beginning to end. When the time came for a settlement conference, he demonstrated that he is a fierce advocate for his client. Brendan was very effective when interacting with the judge and my employer's attorney as evidenced by the outstanding results he secured for me. Brendan Hennessy is trustworthy, knowledgeable and, in my opinion, the "Go-To" attorney for employment law cases.
I was involved in a situation where a previous employer brought legal action against me. Given the specific time in my life and the potential unlimited financial resources of the employer this could have been devastating. Besides being a fantastic attorney, Mr. Hennessy is also a compassionate and thoughtful person who brought resolve to the situation. Mr. Hennessy treated my family and me with kindness and respect throughout the legal process. Any legal action that involves an employer always brings great emotion and Mr. Hennessy understands the people side of law. I would recommend Mr. Hennessy to anyone!
I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with the representation I received from Mr. Hennessy. Following a referral, I contacted Mr. Hennessy concerning an issue that had been going on between my former employer and me for several months. I'd earlier secured representation through another attorney, who hadn't been able to resolve the issue. In all fairness, she was not an employment specialist. Mr. Hennessy is, and it shows.
I originally contacted him via email. He responded quickly, asked a few questions, and fit me into his schedule just a few days later. The office visit was great. Mr. Hennessy asked questions and listened to everything I had to say, approaching my problem with concern, intelligence, and rock-steady composure. After asking follow-up questions and reviewing pertinent documents, he explained his thoughts and the path he would take toward resolution. I left feeling the best I'd felt in months. Now, a week and a half later, my problem -- which, again, had been going on for months -- is resolved. Mr. Hennessy not only handled the problem quickly and expertly; he stayed in touch throughout the process, answering all my questions, facilitating my actions, and bringing me a considerable measure of peace when I most needed it.
If you have any employment issue, contact Mr. Hennessy. He is professional, compassionate, responsive, and obviously experienced, intelligent, and confident.
