He loves world travel, likes to read history books, listen to music of all types (ranging from Etta James to Iron Maiden), and spends extended periods of time roughhousing with his two dogs, Bruni and Perla. John earned his law degree from the University of Texas School of Law, and simultaneously earned a Master of Laws while studying at University College London.

  • Joshua Ray Coffman

    John is a passionate and compassionate advocate for his clients. He has a great presence in the courtroom, and expresses his arguments in an idealistic, yet practical, way. He is confident, yet humble, and the judges, I believe, are always impressed by his oration -- John is articulate.

  • Sydney S. Stuart

    I have worked with Mr. Hennan in extremely complex litigation under highly adversarial circumstances, and find him to be competent beyond his years. His gregarious but confident demeanor makes him a favorite of colleagues and judicial staff and a pleasure to work with. He is a strong and passionate litigator, inspiring the trust of his clients with aggressive but reasonable approaches to their cases. Not only do I enjoy working with him, but I am also confident when doing so that I have reliable co-counsel who always has my back. I am pleased to endorse John Hennan.
