This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Public reprimand means that an attorney did something wrong, but may still practice law. The attorney was given a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Richard’s comment: “This event took place because the Attorney was hospitalized and missed a date which upset a Judge!”

I hired Mr. Kendall for a very simple matter. He quoted me one fee then tried to charge me more. He never had me sign a fee agreement, violating attorney rules. Luckily I had an email where he said how much he would charge me. I did most of the actual work, he never returned calls or emails and the actual case was very simple. Instead of talking about my case I had to hear about his huge weekend trip with 2 football games and a trip to Indianapolis to see the Patriots. Not what a client wants to hear.
Needing a lawyer is nerve wracking enough without not being sure if he's even going to show up. He was late for court time. I would never recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Kendall was more than I could have expected. He was always available by phone or text. My son had a OUI and multiple probation violations (with some possible A&B felony's sprinkled in) Mr. Kendall was excellent, always on top of everything handled everything professionally even while having major surgery in the middle of it all. Most cases were dismissed the rest continued without a finding, my son got the help he needed ( and is now doing very well almost a year later) . I cannot thank Mr. Kendall enough and he was very reasonable price wise and allowed me to make payments.

Mr Kendall agreed to handle a matter for me for services in lieu of fee. I was run over by someone who was charged with three crimes. The defendant then tried to have me charged by applying for a criminal complaint. His lawyer then tried to negotiate with me to get his client off. Mr Kendall lied to me about the length of the meeting, and I know because I sat and watched the attorney come and go. On the eve of the hearing he took off to Florida to go see a Bruins playoff game. He forwarded me documents to sign for opposing counsel that did not protect me at all. He also asked me to sign his name. I fired him after he tried to then take an unagreed to $5000 fee. He never sent an accounting of his time. I had to hire two other lawyers to finish the matter to tune of $1625.00.
