Best Lawyer Ever
Keanan is a brilliant and tenacious lawyer who knows the law and is dedicated to seeking justice for his clients. Keanan not only won my case, he helped me get my property back, and was compassionate and committed through every step of the process.

Great attorney
Kenan represented me in a police brutality case and I am very pleased with his work. Kenan is a very kind, compassionate and easy to talk to attorney who cares about his clients. I would recommend him.

Kenan is a lifesaver
Kenan represented me very successfully in a car accident/personal injury case. I was seriously injured and my insurance company was refusing to pay my bills without explanation. Kenan straightened them out, got my bills all paid, and eventually got me a very fair settlement for my injuries from the other driver's insurance company. He kept me informed throughout the process and I recommend him highly.

In a word "Relief"
Kenan was fantastic and hopefully I will never have need for a lawyer again, but if I do I know whom I’ll be going back to. When I went to Kenan I had been worried about my overall outcome and he was great. Kenan made me feel comfortable and answered all of my questions and explained everything in sufficient detail for me to understand my options. Kenan was also every straightforward as he laid out the potential pitfalls and the possible benefits to my case. Kenan was very realistic in the expectations he set and he met every one of them. His follow through with my case from start to finish was the thing things I personally liked the most. I highly recommend Kenan Isitt and his work.
