  • Betty Jing Boyd

    Mr. Kendall is a full-service attorney in a highly specialized area of DMV law. He does not take DUI cases. He helps drivers who have medical and vision problems to re-instate or maintain their drivers licenses. He provides not only the legal expertise to help his clients, but he also provides the compassion and understanding that clients need to maintain their confidence during their drivers’ re-examinations. I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Kendall, because he is not only highly skilled in the DMV law, but he also passionately cares about his clients.
