About Abbey

Abbey Hendricks is an associate in Stoel Rives’ Employee Benefits group. She assists our clients with a broad range of employee benefits issues, including issues associated with qualified retirement plans, nonqualified deferred compensation plans, and health and welfare benefit plans. She appreciates the value employers receive by offering these plans to their workforce and helps employers ensure compliance with numerous legal obligations.

Prior to starting her law practice, Abbey worked for public and private employers in human resources and employee benefits. She previously served as plan administrator for fully-insured and self-funded employer sponsored health plans, collaborated with labor relations representatives on collectively-bargained employee benefits, and oversaw the design and operation of ancillary health and welfare benefits. She applies this experience to work with clients in a variety of industries.

Abbey was a summer associate and law clerk at Stoel Rives (2016-2017). When she’s not focusing on her benefits practice, you may see her out exploring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
