Ms. Hendon joined Montgomery Little & Soran as an attorney in 2019. Her practice includes issues related to construction, professional liability, and commercial litigation. She is well-versed in complex construction defect litigation and has represented homeowners, owners, engineers, architects, developers, general contractors, and subcontractors in cases involving construction on residential, commercial, and governmental sites. As such, she also performs contract drafting and review for both homeowners and commercial entities in an effort to curtail liability and provide for remedies in case of a contract breach. In addition, Ms. Hendon has represented and aided engineers and architects with regard to state board complaints. Ms. Hendon has successfully advocated for clients in convoluted cases and matters involving contracts of multiple commercial and governmental entities.

Ms. Hendon brings a unique understanding to her design and construction cases as prior to becoming an attorney, she worked for almost two decades as a civil engineer. She remains a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado. Having been an active participant as an engineer on projects from the initial site design phase all the way through construction, she knows firsthand the issues that challenge parties throughout the design and construction of a project. Bringing such knowledge to the legal side aids Ms. Hendon in evaluating the situation from a technical and legal standpoint in order to strategize and appropriately advise clients.

Ms. Hendon is licensed to practice law in both Colorado and Wyoming. She is a Certified Floodplain Manager and volunteered as a staff editor for the American Water Works Association. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, rock collecting, and training for sprint triathlons (for fun).
