Clear concise and timely communication of complicated legal matters! Ms. Kenny wants the very best for her clients and gets it!
Ms. Kenny is a compassionate professional who listenes to the facts and gave spot on, down to earth, advice on how to best proceed in my case and my conduct moving forward, even if that meant she would receive less income. She put my and my children’s best interest above her own financial gain. Something I believe is hard to find. Ms. Kenny was timely and kind in all her communications and simply knew the law, new the opposing counsel and the Court. She is a trial lawyer who impressed and a great negotiator. You can’t go wrong employing Ms. Kenny and I would in an instant again if needed.

Convinced my ex wife it was best for my son in courtroom!
Choosing an attorney to fight for custody is a delicate process as it changes lives. I have fought for my son twice before with two other local attornies and Renae Kenny was THE ONE THAT GOT ME CUSTODY! I was impressed with her attention to detail and quick witts in the courtroom. While my ex's attorney tried some mean dirty tactics, Ms. Kenny kept her cool and was sly in her approach...i was simply impressed with her courtroom demeanor. The entire 6 hours, I felt confident and then in her closing statement she convinced my ex wife to agree that this was in my son's best interest! "What?! Wow!" was the thought I had in my head as she smoothly stuck in small yet specific details of my initial consultation that even I had forgotten about myself...and details that made a difference. I knew I won when I left that court room and the judge returned a quick decision in my favor. My son is now happier than ever, went from D's and F's to all A's and B's and his English teacher is talking about dual enrollment in the 10th grade (English was always his worst class)! He is in a safe, loving home and with family that cares....all thanks to Ms. Kenny! I have recommended her to friends and family and recommend her to you! Choose wisely...choose Ms. Kenny!

Diverse Legal Background and Expertise
Ms. Kenny has a professional, yet warm demeanor, both in and out of the courtroom. She educates her clients on specifics of their case, leaving no questions unanswered. Her diverse background and knowledge is of great benefit to her clients, espcecially with regard to complex matters. Highly recommended.

not looking out for my interest
I could Rarely get in touch with Renae. Renae went on multiple vacations during my case and did not leave anyone incharge of my case when she did leave. She does not work ANY fridays, she rarely returns phone calls. Her assistant has NO nowledge of your case. in my opinion she is lazy! During mediation Renae was more interested in emailing a letter to the Governor of FL than preparing for the mediation. She also informed me that the parenting plan was legally enforcable by the sherriff's office (which is not true). At mediation we scheduled the final court hearing on Aug. 1. She calls late in July saying the earliest she could schedule was Aug. 6. About two weeks before the final hearing she told me my EX did not have to show up to court, then 15 min.before court on the day of court, she calls and says she is going through my papers and my EX does need to be a court we may need to postpone to another day if I cant get her to court' keep in mind that my Ex has leagal council too. She yelled at me over the phone when i asked her if she did this for a living or if she knew what she was doing,she then told me "sometimes people make mistakes". I believe that is completly unacceptable for your lawyer to screw up showing up to court. I would strongly NOT recomend Renea for a family lawyer. There were so many things mishandled and things that were not true that Renae told me. She should be embarrassed to practice family law.
