What Our Clients Say

Brendan 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.
