Took care of everything. Easy to work with.
John was not only an extremely knowledgeable lawyer, he took the time to get to know me, and treated me as a human-being, not just another client. He handled my case with professionalism, compassion, and understanding. He was aggressive when I needed him to be, and truly listened to me throughout my workers comp case.

Excellent experienced lawyer
Atty Kennedy assisted me with my workers comp case which was complicated and ridiculously drawn out by the employer. He got me my settlement and more than I expected.

"Outstanding Litagator. Facing Attorney Kennedy in a courtroom many times over the past fifteen or more years, I have always known to expect complete professionalism and a well prepared and worthy opponent. He asks the tough questions and advocates fiercely for his client while treating every witness, opposing lawyer and court personnel in a respectful manner. I recommend Attorney Kennedy without reservation."
