Great legal advice, excellent outcome
Positives: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value You would be lucky to have Dan represent you. If you get a chance to consult with him, he’ll let you know that he’s represented his clients against some of the largest employers around and won. If you know what you’re talking about, and ask the right questions, you’ll see his expertise come through in his answers and legal strategies. In my case, I had been turned away by many attorneys who said they only represent employers, not individuals. Dan is one of the rare attorneys who specializes in helping the little guy and was more than up to the challenge. I won’t lie to you-- my case wasn’t easy, and Dan and I didn’t always see eye to eye, but there was ALWAYS a strong level of mutual respect that got us through any concerns and got us across the finish line. I don’t think there’s anything more you can ask for in an attorney. All I can say is: know what you’re worth, know what you want, always keep Dan in the loop as your case develops, and you’ll be well represented by one of the best attorneys around.

Very pleased with Daniel Kenney's performance in my case
I hired Daniel Kenney for my case this year. He was very attentive, empathetic, a consummate professional and a great lawyer to work with. From the get go, he asked me all the relevant questions and prepared me for what was to come. His predictions on how the case would go and the outcome were spot on. He is a no nonsense lawyer that would get you great results. I highly recommend him.

Top-Notch Employment Attorney
If I could give 10 stars to the DK Employment Law Firm I would. Daniel Kenny is an extremely knowledgeable no non-sense, sharp, and efficient attorney who looks out for his client’s best interest while seeking creative ways to resolve conflict. We were fortunate enough to have him champion our issue. He is a skillful negotiator and his legal insights on the matter were invaluable to our organization. If you've got a pressing problem, you’ll want the best to represent you so look no further.

Daniel Kenny represented me in a discrimination complaint involving the Internal Revenue Service. He successfully litigated my case through an administrative hearing and I am extremely pleased with Attorney Kenny’s professionalism, honesty, and technical abilities. Dan is an extremely efficient attorney who did not waste time or money in the administration of my case. My case was very complex and due to an unfortunate situation, Mr. Kenny had only three months to become familiar and present the facts in my case before an administrative judge due to the unexpected departure of an attorney that had been representing me for five years. As stated, Mr. Kenny prevailed in the litigation of my case; however, the government appealed the decision and Mr. Kenny prepared the appellate brief. The brief was well written and contained relevant legal citations. Dan Kenny is an exemplary attorney and I would highly recommend him. If you have any doubt in retaining Mr. Kenny and would like to contact me personally, please do so at [email protected].

Highly Experienced and Dedicated Employment Law Attorney
Mr. Kenney represented me as Co-Counsel in a major Merit Systems Protection Board case involving retaliation against me whistle blower activity. Dan participated in depositions, went through thousands of pages of discovery and spent hundreds of hours working with my primary counsel to prepare for a major three day hearing. Mr. Kenney has a unique knowledge and insight of employment law and was excellent in identifying and dealing with key points of the case. I would most highly recommend Mr. Kenney to anyone who has an employment/labor law issue.

Response from Daniel Kenney September 29, 2015
Mike is a terrific client, a stand-up employee and a credit to federal whistleblowers. I was honored to co-represent Mike in his tremendously important whistleblower case.

Excellent, highly skilled Employment Law Attorney
Dan Kenney recently joined my legal team representing me as Whistleblower litigating against a major government agency. In a very short time Dan has impressed me with his precise and extensive knowledge of employment law, excellent communication skills and inordinate quick responsiveness. Dan has been excellent in providing me counsel and just recently represented me in a number of depositions. He was professional and through and I have the utmost confidence in his abilities and integrity.
