We Empathize With You

Standing in your shoes and taking the time to deeply understand your legal challenges are critical factors to our success. Through this approach, we will work with you to help restore the power imbalance between large companies and their employees during disputes.

At Hennick Law, we’ll make sure that your best interests are protected under the law.

We Provide Personalized Legal Services

Lawson Hennick will oversee your case from day one. Your case will not be passed down the chain of command to a junior lawyer or to someone else without your knowledge. We believe that fostering great client relationships is a key ingredient to success. We strive for excellence in this regard and are confident that you will notice the Hennick Law difference.

We Keep You Informed

We take it upon ourselves to keep you updated on all major steps in your case. We know how daunting litigation can be so we make it a point to keep you informed. Regular contact puts you at ease and helps us work together to craft the best outcome for your case.

Lawson is not only a very professional lawyer but he is also a very professional business man. Being an expert in his law practice of personal injury I found him to be very knowledgeable whenever I had to reach out to him for questions about my circumstances. He is very prompt in returning your call and is always there to help. I wouldn't have any one else help me with my personal injury law needs except Lawson. I would strongly recommend Lawson as you will not be disappointed.

After interviewing four lawyers, I chose Hennick Law to handle my severance negotiation. From my first conversation with Lawson, I liked his approach and felt like he cared about my outcome. He made the negotiation process easy for me, reducing a lot of stress. At each step, I was kept informed about where we were in the process. He explained my options and the pros and cons of every decision I made along the way, so that I was confident in the choices I made. His legal assistant, Stephen, was also lovely to deal with and very helpful. I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family to Lawson, should they ever require his services.
