Colin Hennessy

Colin joined Gjesdahl Law, P.C. in 2022. He grew up in Grand Forks, North Dakota. During his growing up and high school years, he played organized baseball and hockey, then played baseball collegiately, as well. After his career as a pitcher ended, Colin completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at The University of North Dakota.

Today, he’s dedicated to helping our clients through their family-related issues and times of need. The lessons he’s learned as an athlete translate well. Good results are earned by hard work, leaning on fundamentals, and teamwork.

Colin lives in downtown Fargo. He spends most of his free time on the golf course, watching his favorite sports teams, or spending time with his friends and family.
