Jessica Kendrick is the Founder and Managing Partner of the Kendrick Law Group, a boutique law firm in Maitland, Florida. She is also the cofounder of Champion Title & Closing and the Hope for More Foundation.

Jess received her undergraduate degree in Marketing from the University of Central Florida, where she played for the UCF Division 1 women’s soccer program. To expand her professional career and broaden her opportunities to make an impact in her community, she earned her Juris Doctor Degree with honors from Barry University School of Law in 2013.

Her legal career has helped her blend her passion for helping others with her talents for business. Prior to founding the Kendrick Law Group, she honed her skills in the areas of Insurance Defense, Family Law, Personal Injury and Business Litigation. Jess has managed and litigated hundreds of cases, working with thousands of clients.

The Kendrick Law Group is a boutique law firm that focuses on Business Law, Real Estate Law, Civil Litigation, Estate and Family Law. Jess founded the firm with the goal of delivering personalized legal service and top-notch representation to clients. Kendrick Law Group’s mission is to service its community. That same spirit of service helped Jess to launch Champion Title & Closing in 2017 with Partner, Sarah Geltz, Esq.

Champion Title & Closing duplicates the same concierge service so intrinsic to the success of the Kendrick Law Group. The company’s focus is to provide attorney-managed title services and in just over a year, it has launched its second office on Park Avenue in Winter Park, Florida.

When not in the office, Jess has two main focuses: her family and her beloved Central Florida community. She continues to serve on a number of civic and philanthropic boards.

Jess serves as Board Member for Make-A-Wish Northern and Central Florida and, since 2016, as Chair for their annual Hamlin & Associates Wishmaker’s Ball. Her dedication to giving back to her community led her to co-launch her own 501(c)(3) organization, Hope for More Foundation, with her partners. Hope for More focuses on identifying and supporting outstanding nonprofit organizations in Central Florida to further their efforts in outreach, advocacy and fundraising.

Jess, with the support of her husband Dr. James Kendrick, continues to foster the same charitable ambition and spirit of community in their two young sons and her step-daughter.

Excellent
Jessica is an incredible attorney. We hired her and her firm to handle all of our business legal matters and we have been nothing but impressed. They have been thorough with a holistic approach of preventing issues but when challenges have arisen they've been at our side immediately. We are thrilled they are on our side.

Professional and Aggressive
Jessica was a complete professional and assisted our business is a very volatile time. We needed assistance through a touch legal case as well as guidance moving forward. She was able to settle our case quickly, thereby saving us thousands in attorney's fees. Her business planning expertise also allowed for us to move forward and avoid further issues and litigation regarding employees, contracts and financials. I HIGHLY recommend Jessica to any business looking for an aggressive, smart, and goal oriented attorney.

Great experience!
After my car accident I had my consultation with Jessica and from that point I was confident in using Kendrick Law Group for my case. They made the experience simple and took care of everything. They treated me like family and were completely honest right from the beginning. I would recommend this law firm to everyone! Its a pleasure working with Jessica especially when they are so easy to keep in contact with, even if its just to ask a few questions. The only thing I have to focus on was my recovery!

Extremely effective!
Jessica came on board to our family-law case more than a year into the messy, often painful process. She made the transition smooth for us and actually did considerably more work than our previous attorney (who asked her to fill in for him at an important court hearing). Jessica proved herself incredibly professional, tenacious, smart, and savvy. She communicates clearly and efficiently with her clients, other attorneys, judges, magistrates, and paraprofessionals. Jessica is prompt in responding (even to urgent phone calls), and is poised and articulate in the courtroom. I strongly recommend Jessica if you're looking for an attorney who will work extremely hard as your advocate and who is unafraid of the complexities of our legal system. Her fees are fair, especially considering how valuable she is!

Epitome of Professional
Jessica Kendrick is professional, confident, honest and empathetic. She has no fear. She will make sure that she understands your position, but is a straight-shooter. I had complete confidence in her and she made me feel like a top priority from the beginning of my case to the very end. If you want quality representation, you've found it.

Great Attorney. Very knowledgable would highly recommend Jessica to friends and family!
Jessica is very personable, approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys in the trade. She is also a staunch, steadfast and passionate advocate. Jessica has been a dedicated counsel and friend. I felt bad when interrupting her personal time, but Jessica constantly assured me that it was okay, and she’s always available.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"It’s one thing when clients say great stuff about their lawyers. It’s another when opposing counsels do it. And I’m here to say Jessica Kendrick is such an accomplished lawyer she breaks the mold on these things. I’ve known Jessica for years, and we were opposite each other in a case a few years ago. She was smart, reasonable, unemotional, and we were able to settle the case amicably and professionally. We both lobbied hard for our clients, but at the same time helped them craft a settlement that they both approved of. AND we were able to do that without running up their bills and incurring them unnecessary expenses. Unreasonable lawyers is one of the primary reasons legal fees become outrageous. You won’t have to worry about that if you hire Jessica. Her team are hard-working, zealous advocates who will give you great, pragmatic advice. I trust them implicitly, and I refer my small business clients to them!"
