Jon Hendrix has been an attorney for 17 years, spending more than the last decade at the Office of Lawyer Regulation in Madison.

Hendrix graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 2006.

Prior to attending law school, he worked for a private sector law firm on administrative licensing issues with the state.

Hendrix said he believes what has made him successful has been his ability to “explore and fairly portray an attorney’s behavior.”

According to Hendrix, one of the most fulfilling parts of his job is “our emphasis on finding out what happened, not trying to score victories.”

When asked what advice Hendrix has for other lawyers, he replied, “There are always things you can agree on with an opposing party and judges will love it if you do.”

Timothy Samuelson, director of the Office of Lawyer Regulation, said Hendrix is a team player.

“Jon is a dedicated lawyer who is very thoughtful in approach and the type of person who is willing to pitch in and help the team,” Samuelson said.

Samuelson praised Hendrix for his knowledge, experience and dedication to seeking just results before the state Supreme Court.

“Jon has a strong historical understanding of the OLR and its practices,” Samuelson said, noting that Hendrix has been with the office for more than eight years.

“Jon’s historical understanding has been particularly helpful, in part because I have only been in my role for two years,” Samuelson noted. “His ability to explain in detail the historical context allows us to achieve just results.”

According to Samuelson, Hendrix has had three oral arguments before Wisconsin Supreme Court, “which resulted in appropriate outcomes from the Court.”

“Jon plays an important role in OLR achieving justice in its disciplinary proceedings,” Samuelson added.
