Best lawyer I could have gotten
When I got hit by a car while riding my bicycle, I was at a loss about what to do, since I am not from the states and was just visiting. Fortunately, I found Mr. Henningsen here on Avvo and after speaking with him and his paralegal Carmen, I was absolutely sure that I was in good hands. Turns out I was absolutely right; not only was the team professional and experienced, but they were relentless in getting what was best for me in every aspect, be it healthcare, money or you name it. The whole process the service was so good, that I wasn't even worried in the slightest, and that kind of peace of mind is not something you can get everywhere. He is a lawyer with ethics, integrity and, most important of all, he truly cares about his clients. Would recommend him, hands down, to anyone and everyone.

I would HIGHLY recommend Todd Henningsen
I can't recommend Todd Henningsen enough. He is knowledgeable, forthright and very timely in getting back to his clients. I was dealing with an ERISA plan company and had no prior knowledge about what that entailed. My particular case was settled in a very timely manner in my estimation. I would highly recommend Todd Henningsen any time to anyone with a personal injury case.

Great Job!!!
I would first like to say that I don't think I could've picked a better attorney to handle my case. Todd and his very professional and knowledgeable staff exceeded my expectations with the settlement I was awarded. They were great at keeping me informed every step of the way as to how my case was progressing and if I ever had any questions or concerns, I could always get in touch with you any time. My whole experience with the Henningsen Law firm was so gratifying knowing that there are some really amazing attorneys out there that do have your best interests at heart. Thanks again Todd and LaShonda and the rest of your staff for all your hard work, I really appreciate it.

Great honest lawyer!!!
Todd worked my case non-stop for almost three years and reached a great settlement at the end. It was a complicated case (motorcycle accident) and he worked very hard on it. He presents himself very good and is very knowledgeable of Law. He does all his homework/research for your case down to the last detail. I would highly recommend this Attonery for any personal injury case! Great honest man!!

The ultimate in service!!!
This is the law firm you want if you want to win your case. I had two attorneys before Todd, I had action and I had a strong dude. When got Todd I found what a real firm is supposed to do. This group of good spirited people gave my family and myself the service and peace of mind that we needed. Lashondra gets the go getters of the year award, as a family we thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts.

Outstanding service!!!!
I was involved in a vehicle accident in April 2012, I suffered personal injuries. I hired an attorney a few days later, he was so eager to take my case, I did not know that my first conversation with him would be my last. He and his staff were very unprofessional, never returned calls, I was just left in a limbo state. So, one Sunday morning I was watching TV and saw this lawyer (Todd Henningsen) on TV and I said to my husband "I think I will call him." I Called Mr. Henningsen the next day, did not speak to an assistant or a machine, I spoke directly to him. He kept me informed about my case, he is truly a professional, extremely knowledgeable, very caring and compassionate. Most importantly he GOT THE JOB DONE! I recommend him very highly and without ANY RESERVATION! No one wants or plans an accident, but things happen and this is who you need to represent you. I was very pleased with the results of my case!!!

I definitely recommend using Henningsen Injury Attorneys!
Mr. Henningsen was the first person I called after I had a car accident that totaled my car. He was great from the very beginning, he informed me of all of my rights and always called to see how I was feeling. Throughout the whole process he let me know what was going on, what information he needed and when we would hear back from the at fault parties insurance company. In a short amount of time he was about to get me a great settlement and took care of paying all of my medical bills. I thank him all the time and would definitely recommend using Mr. Henningsen if you have been injured in a car accident!

Professional Ethical and personable
I had the pleasure of being represented by Mr Henningsen in an auto accident case. I was injured and had accumulated several medical bills. I was contacted by the insurance company and offered a settlement much lower than expected for the amount of time and treatments that I had received due to those injuries. Mr Henningsen accepted my case and went right to work for me right away! Within weeks and several follow ups from Mr. Henningsen himself he called to let me know that not only was he able to double what they had offered to settle my case but that he was able to collect the maximum on the policy. I now have what I know to be one of the best, professional, ethical and personable attorneys on my side and will use him again.

Broken Promises
I was involved in an accident where a driver hit me, totaled my vehicle and, I came out with broken bones. This attorney sent out someone to get all of my information because I was injured from said accident. The person told me it was easily a million dollar settlement. I ended up getting less than $15,000 and I'm still paying for medical expenses incurred from the accident. The lead paralegal is rude and has a very bad attitude towards their clients...I'm not the only person to witness her bad behavior. I would not hire this legal firm to represent me again.

Attorney Todd Henningsen
I hired Todd Henningsen based on a referral from his assistant. I called and she sent a ambulance chaser to my job who persuaded me to sign a contract. His assistant promised me that the firm could do a better job than the attorney that I originally hired. I decided to stay with my attorney and his assistant called me again and talked me into coming to their firm. The firm did not give me the attention they promised and Mr. Henningsen did not present all of my medical bills correctly. This firm did not fight for me. I received a low settlement and found out after reading the final demand that this firm did nothing that I could not have done myself. They are still holding $1500 of my money based on a settlement that they were not able to reach.

Response from Todd Henningsen March 13, 2019
There are many statements that are simply untrue. This client called us and asked for our investigator to meet with her at her job, not an "ambulance chaser." We would never make any guarantees or promises regarding results, but we did in fact obtain significantly more money than the previous attorney. I met with this client in my office and explained that she had the opportunity to file a lawsuit or accept the settlement. She accepted the settlement for details that I am ethically precluded from discussing. Unfortunately, attorney client privilege prevents me from discussing the full details of this matter, but suffice it to say that this is not an accurate portrayal of what happened.
