Rob Hennig knows what it is like to be a zealous advocate for people. As a lawyer, a university teacher, and an activist, he has pursued a varied and successful career of service.

As the founding and managing partner of Hennig, Ruiz & Singh, Rob Hennig has represented exclusively individuals in litigation. He has taken numerous cases to judgment including bench trials, jury trials and in arbitration and has recovered over $10 million in settlements and judgments for his clients.

Rob has argued before multiple courts of appeal for the State of California and the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal.

Rob's active appellate practice is an example of the zealous representation and sophistication of advocacy on behalf of his clients.

Mr. Hennig has been quoted in the local and national media on a variety of political and legal topics. He has also presented at various legal education programs including the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the California Employment Lawyers Association, the Beverly Hills Bar Association, the Orange County Employment Lawyers, and the Los Angeles Employer Lawyers group (LEFTJAW).

For over a decade, Rob taught courses in Constitutional law and judicial politics at UCLA, including the first ever LGBT politics course at UCLA. Rob has also appeared at numerous national and regional academic conferences and presented academic papers on a variety of legal and political topics.

Devoting time to public service, Rob has served on the Board of Directors of the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California including past President of its Lesbian and Gay Rights Chapter. Rob was also the founding Co-Chair of the Board of Directors of what is now Equality California, the largest LGBT state advocacy organization in the country.
