Thank you for adding my contact information. It's a great way for us to keep in touch.

I draw on 37 years of bankruptcy litigation experience to guide clients to cost effective bankruptcy litigation solutions.

Pat Hennessy is just completing a quiet title and partition action for a bankruptcy trustee client, which will result in the sale of a property, listed as without value by the debtor, for $1.55 million and payment in full of creditors in the bankruptcy case.


  • Represented trustee in sale of 3,000 acres of farmland while settling litigation with secured lender.
  • Obtained $20,000,000 plus judgment for creditor client in bankruptcy case and determination judgment not discharged.
  • I have obtained numerous judgments or settlements for trustees of preference and fraudulent conveyance claims in bankruptcy cases.
  • I have represented numerous creditor clients in defending and/or settling claims of fraudulent conveyance or preference payment asserted against them by bankruptcy trustees.
  • On a pro bono basis, I represented a Somali client to defeat a foreclosure on her home and nullify a mortgage given by the ex-husband without her knowledge, saving the family home.

After Hours

When not viewing my grandchildren’s sports, dancing and other activities, I enjoy motorcycle riding along the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers, hunting with my family (father, uncles, cousins, son, nieces and nephews) or long walks around the lake with Cindy, my wife for 46 years.
