Longtime LA Catholic attorney J. Michael Hennigan dies

J. Michael Hennigan, a longtime attorney who served the Archdiocese of Los Angeles as a senior legal advisor for more than 20 years, died April 6 at his LA-area home surrounded by family.

Hennigan, who was 80, died of complications from leukemia, which he had battled for more than seven years.

Hennigan began working with the archdiocese in the early 2000s under Cardinal Roger Mahony. He was the archdiocese’s lead legal adviser during the resolution of the 2007 global settlement with victims of sexual abuse, and continued advising the archdiocese until his retirement from law firm McKool Smith earlier this year.
