After years of litigation practice representing Fortune 500 companies and their management, John Hendricks founded Hendricks Law, P.C. to provide businesses with the highest level of legal expertise and services, complemented by an unparalleled commitment to leverage the latest technology — all to give his clients the best possible representation.

Mr. Hendricks’ practice focuses on the areas of business, real estate and employment law, and is well-suited for clients requiring outside general counsel services. He advocates on behalf of clients in both traditional and “new economy” industries. He is a recognized expert in advising local businesses about San Francisco’s unique laws, speaks publicly on relevant topics and has been quoted in leading legal publications, including the ABA Journal and the San Francisco Daily Journal.

Mr. Hendricks practices in state and federal courts in California, prosecuting commercial claims and defending employment claims. His skills in trial advocacy were recognized with the NITA Advocate designation by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy in 2007. More recently, Super Lawyers magazine named him a “Rising Star.”

Before practicing law, Mr. Hendricks served as a legislative aide for international trade and other issues in the US House of Representatives. He was an associate at Lafayette & Kumagai LLP, and a law clerk for Tellme Networks, Inc. (a subsidiary of Microsoft Corp.), prior to founding Hendricks Law.

Mr. Hendricks participates in numerous professional and civic organizations, and has held leadership roles with several, notably serving in the House of Delegates of the American Bar Association, as a director of Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom (BALIF) and as president of the National LGBT Bar Foundation.
