About me

If you are reading this "About Me" section you must be looking for a lawyer. Maybe you are worried, concerned, upset, or just wondering about a certain legal question. I have been a lawyer for over 20 years, and I know how confusing all of this can be to people. Pick up the telephone and call. In fact, you should call a lot of lawyers, and talk to as many lawyers as you can about your questions. Good luck.

  • Janet Jackson

    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.
