Timothy James Kennedy

About me

Timothy Kennedy has been certified as a SPECIALIST in the practice of workers' compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Section on Workers' Compensation Law as authorized by they Pennsylvania Supreme Court.


Mr. Kennedy obtained his law degree (Juris Doctor) in 1992 from Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey, a highly competitive law school rated as one of the best in the country.  Mr. Kennedy  there had the very great honor of becoming a Law Review Editor, a distinction recognized by other lawyers as the mark of a truly ambitious and hard-working attorney.   Tim was also a dean's list scholar and worked in the coveted position of research and writing assistant for the internationally known constitutional law expert who drafted the constitution of the Russian Republic in 1991 and forty other national constitutions world-wide.  Tim also obtained perhaps the most impressive and immediate success of anyone in his law school class, securing a summer associate position with a large and prestigious Philadelphia firm after just his first year of legal study. 

Graduating in 1992, Tim immediately took and passed the Pennsylvania Bar examination and was admitted to practice that same year.  By that time, he was no longer interested in leading or even joining the herd pursuing large firm practice.  Instead, Tim was committed to representing injured individuals and setting the record straight in an environment where insurance companies seek to depict honest victims of serious injuries as if they were frauds.  Tim wanted to take on the insurance companies, as a litigator fighting for individuals.

For the past twenty-plus years, Tim has concentrated his practice on representing injured workers, persons who have suffered serious personal injuries, the families of those who have been killed under wrongful death circumstances and the survivors of persons who have died due to the effects of work-related injuries or illnesses. He knows the law and he knows the practice.

Mr. Kennedy has established himself as a uniquely skilled and accomplished Philadelphia area workers compensation and personal injury attorney, appreciated by his clients, respected by his colleagues and feared by his adversaries.

Mr. Kennedy is a frequent speaker at legal seminars and before public and private groups, educating other lawyers and the public on issues relating to workers' compensation and personal injury law.


The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy maintains a primary office on South Newtown Street Road (PA Route 252), in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania, convenient to the Blue Route and at the very center of the five county Philadelphia region.  Mr. Kennedy also maintains regional satellite offices and meeting sites at business centers accessible to all of eastern Pennsylvania, for the convenience of the firm's many clients from nearby Philadelphia, from such far afield locales as Scranton, and everywhere in between.  

Tim resides in Delaware County with his wife of twenty-two plus years and their two sons.
