I would trust Cynthia Hennessey completely. The smartest thing I ever did was called her after my Employer made me so mad...She always had my best interest at heart, was always fighting hard for me, and got me a great settlement. I am very very happy.

Highly Recommend

I am happy to recommend Cynthia Hennessey. I seriously hurt my back in a work accident and with the type of work I do, there was no way I could pass the physical. I honestly had no idea what I was supposed to do. I had more questions than answers. Cynthia met with my wife and I several times often on weekends. She was never in a hurry. She answered our questions every step of the way and helped me get a very good settlement. I feel like we were very lucky to have her as our lawyer, I honestly don’t think we would have gotten as personalized service with anyone else. I highly recommend.

Very Kind, Ethical Lawyer

Cynthia did an outstanding job handling my Workers Comp lawsuit and my car accident lawsuit. I am a driver and was rear ended while on the job. There was a lot of depositions, and mediations and Cynthia was very impressive. She fought the insurance companies, and got us very good settlements. My wife and I were very impressed with Cynthia and would definitely hire her again to represent us.

The best lawyer

Cynthia was very, very nice to me and my husband. I hurt my back and I first hired a law firm off of the TV commercials. It was terrible. All I ever got to talk to was a secretary, and couldn’t get anyone to answer my questions. I never even met the lawyer, and I felt like no one was fighting for me. I went to see Cynthia Hennessey at the Workers’ Comp 101 seminar for Injured Workers and I asked her immediately to take my case over. I fired the lawyer I had. Cynthia met with us for 2 hours, she filed a hardship for my benefits, and fought in court and won. I was very impressed when she gave me her cell phone number, I could text or call her anytime I had a question and always got a quick response. I don’t think the first lawyer ever even knew who I was. Cynthia treated us very personally. I will definitely call her if I ever get hurt again or if I know anyone who gets hurt.

Very Nice Law Firm

hired Cynthia to represent me in 2010. I fell on ice at work and tore my rotator cuff all the way through. I was tired of dealing with the insurance company claims adjuster. She just wasn’t that nice, she never returned my calls, kept delaying things. It was so nice to just hand the whole mess to Cynthia. She met with me personally, spent a long time getting to know me, and worked my case quickly and professionally. She and her staff are just plain nice to work with, always friendly, easy to talk to, and I always felt comfortable asking questions, and talking to them. We just settled this week, and I am very happy with the settlement. In fact, it is quite a bit more than I ever expected. I would hire Cynthia again.

Great Experience, Very Nice Attorney

I always hoped I would never need a personal injury lawyer. The commercials on television are so sleazy, I thought they were all “ambulance chasers”. Well, then my car was rear-ended by a pick up truck going 55 miles an hour while I was at a dead stop. I happened to be on the job, as I am a Sales Rep for a large corporation. I seriously hurt my neck, sustaining 2 herniated discs. I was lost. I couldn’t work because my job requires me to lift items up to 50 pounds out of my trunk. I couldn’t do anything or even sleep because I was in so much pain. I was trying to deal with Workmans Comp and the insurance company for the guy who hit me and my own insurance company. Everyone wanted statements, I couldn’t keep straight who I had talked with because of the pain meds. I needed help. I researched and found Cynthia Hennessey. First and foremost, I was so happy to find an Attorney who was not “sleazy”. She is so professional and so nice; I felt like I was talking to a good friend. She cared about me personally, always asked about my kids and family. She took the whole situation off my shoulders, and I didn’t have to deal with any of the legal stuff again. I’m back to work now, after 2 surgeries, and 8 months off. My cases have all settled and the matter is finally behind me. Cynthia got me the maximum policy limits from all the insurance companies and a great settlement from Workmans Comp. I still consider her a friend, and wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.

Highly recommend

My husband worked for a very large company, (I can’t say who) that delivers packages worldwide. He fell off a loading dock 2 years ago, onto his back and head. He suffered an injury to his head and brain and has never returned to work and will never return to work. He has never been the same since. He is depressed, has terrible memory problems, can’t concentrate, his mood has changed terribly. He is nothing like the man I married. Anyway, Cynthia Hennessey was our lawyer for the workmens comp case. Thank goodness we found her. As a nurse, she knew everything there was to know about head injuries. The workmens comp doctors all said there was nothing wrong with him, that he was faking. Cynthia believed him, and knew exactly what we were going through. She sent us to experts who finally did the correct testing, and took our case to trial. The judge was visibly upset with workmens Comp. He gave us everything we asked for, lifetime benefits, medical treatment and attendant care and all of our bills paid for. Again, thank goodness for Cynthia. I strongly recommend her for any type of brain injury or head injury.

Great Experience

My husband had a fall at work injuring his neck and back. We knew it was a serious injury, and that we better get a lawyer to represent us. We had no idea where to turn. I opened up the paper and saw an advertisement for Cynthia Hennessey’s Workers Comp 101 the workshop. We cleared our calendar and went. I can only say we left absolutely amazed and sure that Cynthia Hennessey was going to be our lawyer. She is a nurse and a workers comp specialist. In 2 hours she taught us more than I ever believed I could learn about Work Comp insurance companies, the Second Injury Fund, Social Security, future medical treatment etc. She was funny, smart and informative. Our case is still pending as my husband has just had his 3rd surgery. But I couldn’t be happier with our choice of lawyer. I highly recommend her.

Very nice attorney

had a great experience with Cynthia Hennessey and her office. I fell at work and broke my ankle in three places requiring surgery with plates and screws. My recovery was long and drawn out. Cynthia was always great with keeping me posted as to what was happening with my case. I liked that she handles her cases from start to finish rather than shuffling the case to a young associate. She always knew exactly what was going on with my treatment. She was quick to obtain all my records, and settled my case with the insurance company shortly after I was released by the doctors. I feel I got a very fair settlement; in fact it was more than I expected. Overall, it was a very smooth experience, and I would choose Cynthia Hennessey again if I ever need an injury lawyer.

Great Experience

I never in a million years thought I would need a lawyer for a Workers Comp injury. I am a pharmaceutical sales rep and I fell down 5 stairs while carrying a load of work materials, I hurt my neck and couldn’t work. Workers Comp tried to deny this at first. It was then that I knew I needed a lawyer. I researched and read up on every Workers Comp lawyer in St. Louis. I found Cynthia Hennessey, and I liked that she was a Nurse, a lawyer and also had worked for the insurance companies before. As well, I liked all the great reviews. I met with her, and immediately I knew I was in good hands. She was so nice and professional, I was sure I made a great choice. She filed for a hardship and won. So I started getting paid for the time I was missing. Workers Comp tried several more tricks to mess with me, but with each one, Cynthia immediately fought back, dragged them into court and won. My case ended with a good settlement. Of course my neck will never be the same again. But I was very, very happy to have had Cynthia as my lawyer and would use her again.

Great Experience

I went to Cynthia’s Workers’ Comp. 101 workshop in Collinsville because the lawyer I had wasn’t doing anything on my case. I learned more that evening than I ever thought possible. I fired my lawyer the next day and hired Cynthia. Cynthia had my case filed and ready for trial in 6 months. My other lawyer sat on it for a year. Cynthia was far better in court than the insurance company’s lawyer. He was unprepared, fumbled and stuttered and I could tell the judge just didn’t like him. Cynthia was extremely prepared, she had everything indexed and ready to go. Everything the Judge asked, Cynthia knew the answer to. It was obvious that the Judge liked her and respected her, that was clear. We got a great result from the trial judge. I was just very happy that I went to that workshop and met Cynthia. I highly recommend her.

Very kind and trustworthy lawyer

When my 70 year old father fell at work (believe it or not he was still working 30 hours a week in a machine shop) severely injuring his leg I couldn’t believe that the Workers’ Comp. insurance company would give him a hard time. I researched every attorney in the area, and knew I wanted to hire Cynthia Hennessey when within 1 minute of meeting her. She was so kind, friendly, and compassionate and knew exactly what needed to be done. I knew that as a Nurse and a lawyer my Dad would feel comfortable with her, and she would completely understand his injury (which was very serious) as well as the law. It was so nice to feel that Cynthia had everything under control. Dad eventually recovered, for the most part, but couldn’t go back to work. Cynthia got him a very nice settlement from Workers Comp as well as lifetime benefits from the Second Injury Fund. I can’t speak highly enough about her, she was wonderful

Excellent Attorney

Two years ago I slipped on an icy walkway while making a delivery for work (I am a truck driver). I didn’t know any lawyers. I was referred to Cynthia Hennessey from my friend at work. He hired Cynthia for a case and had nothing but great things to say about her. I wound up needing surgery on my neck for a disc and my shoulder for a rotator cuff repair. By the time I was done treating, work wouldn’t take me back because I wasn’t 100% and I was pretty sure I couldn’t get any other company to hire me at 57 years old with these injuries. Cynthia fought Workman’s Comp to get me benefits from them. Then she fought Social Security Disability. Meanwhile we also had a case against the company that owned the property (I can’t say who because it is confidential). We had a formal mediation for that case in front of a judge, and wound up getting a very good settlement that compensates me for my wages and other benefits that I am out as well as for pain and suffering. Cynthia was always very nice to deal with. I never felt like I was bothering her when I called, and I called a lot. I have heard a lot of horror stories from other people about their lawyers, but Cynthia was great. I highly recommend her

Very Good Experience

I attended the Workers Comp 101 workshop that Cynthia Hennessey spoke at. I learned so much, and I knew then that I wanted her to handle my case as I was in over my head. I had no idea how the insurance companies play hardball with work injuries. Cynthia was extremely nice to work with. As a nurse and a lawyer I knew I was in good hands with her. My case went to mediation, at which time Cynthia argued the case to the judge and we got a very good and very fair settlement. I would definitely use Cynthia again if I needed a lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer for Auto Accident Case

Cynthia Hennessey handled my daughter’s car accident case. I was very nervous hiring a lawyer for her as she is only 18. I knew she needed a lawyer and would not be treated fairly by the insurance company. I admit I liked that Cynthia is a nurse and a woman. I thought she would be more understanding and compassionate with my daughter’s injuries. I was right with that. She was so nice to my daughter, she spent hours getting to know her, and making her feel comfortable. I was right that the insurance company for the other driver was terrible. My daughter was not at fault, did nothing wrong, and was badly hurt. The whole accident was a horrible situation for us, but Cynthia is very agressive with them and in the end got us a great settlement at mediation that we were very happy with. I highly recommend her.

Highly recommend

I recommend Cynthia Hennessey very highly. As all the other reviews have stated, she is first and foremost very very nice and friendly. She represented me for my work injury and my personal injury case. (I was hit by a truck while on the job). I was fired from my job because the doctors place restrictions on me that kept me from being able to do my job. Cynthia work very hard and fast to get my cases to trial. If this would have dragged on, I would have lost everything. Cynthia got me lifetime benefits from the second injury fund and more than I ever expected from the trucking case and from workers comp. I could not have done any better than choosing Cynthia.

Excellent service, Very kind

I was so nervous hiring a lawyer after I got hurt at work. I was very lucky to find Cynthia Hennessey. I liked that she was both a nurse and a lawyer. My case was very complicated and Cynthia was so kind and caring the whole time. She was always patient, explaining everything to me and my husband until we understood it. She was far better than the other lawyer at court. I am very happy I used her, she got me a lot more than I even thought my case was worth. I highly recommend her.

Kind and Honest Attorney

I highly recommend Cynthia Hennessey. As both a Nurse and an Attorney, she knew my case better than even the doctors. She was always kind and patient with my husband and I, always met with us and answered our questions. We couldn't have found a better lawyer to handle our case.

Good Lawyer for Workman's Comp

Never worked with a lawyer before, but it was easy to work with Cynthia. She was good at explaining the process of the lawsuit and she told me what I could expect. I wasn't exactly sure what to do, but she was good at answering questions and I don't know what I'd have done without her help.

She pretty patient, and really knows how to talk to people - not so you feel talked down to, but so you feel understood and all. I came for a free consult, but signed on with her right away.

My case settled a few weeks ago and I am looking forward to putting all this behind me. She did a good job for me.

Best Lawyer near Belleville, IL

I was injured at work for a large, chain store and as I didn't have health insurance, I asked the company (via store management and HR personnel) for medical compensation, which was eventually denied.

I came to Cynthia for a free consult and hired her on the spot. It may have taken several months, but she was able to get me fair compensation for the loss of wages and the medical costs. Her hardwork really paid off and I cannot thank her and her amazing team enough.
