Hensley enters race for judge of Superior Court
Wednesday, August 21, 2013 11:00 AM
Madison attorney Mike Hensley announced Tuesday he will seek the Democratic nomination for Superior Court judge in 2014.
Hensley has been a lifelong resident of Jefferson County and has practiced law in Madison since 1980. He is a partner at Jenner, Pattison, Hensley & Wynn.
Hensley said he hopes to provide "swift and fair justice" if elected.
"I have had an extremely diversified practice over the years and feel that my career has prepared me for any type of case I will handle as Superior Court judge," he said.
Hensley has represented clients in front of the Indiana Supreme Court, Indiana Court of Appeals, Indiana Civil Rights Commission and the Indiana Worker's Compensation Board.
"I have represented clients in thousands of hearings for all types of civil and criminal matters in every county of southeastern Indiana," he said.
Hensley graduated from Madison Consolidated High School in 1973 and went on to graduate from Indiana University in 1977 with an honors diploma in finance from the Kelley School of Business. He graduated with honors from Indiana University School of Law in 1980.
He previously served as the president of the Jefferson County Bar Association.
Hensley previously ran for Superior Court judge but stopped campaigning to undergo heart surgery in August 2008. He said he is fully recovered and his health is not an issue.
Madison attorney Mary Jean Stotts and New Albany attorney Bill Gray have already announced their intention to run for the Democratic nomination for judge. Incumbent Alison Frazier is the only Republican in the race so far.
