Kenneth Hamner has been my professor in three classes, Intellectual Property, Mergers & Acquisitions, and Business Plan Development, during my pursuit of two masters’ degrees at the University of South Florida. He is a prominent business professor in practice and experienced attorney. He is definitely not the average attorney or professor. As a professor, Kenneth is exceptionally knowledgeable. He has immeasurable experience not only as an attorney but as a business professional and owner. He not only holds a Juris Doctor, but also an MBA, a Master of Accounting in Forensic Accounting, and a Master of Science in Entrepreneurship in Applied Technologies. Kenneth also has certificates in Artificial Intelligence, Digital Transformation, Venture Finance, Mediation and Dispute Resolution, and Chinese Law from prominent global universities such as MIT, Oxford, Humboldt Universitat zu Berlin and the China University of Political Science and Law. Complementary to his education, he also has professional licenses in exit planning, mergers & acquisitions, forensic accounting and fraud examination, and real estate brokerage. Kenneth’s previous experience, in combination with his multiple degrees, makes him a well-versed business professor as well.
I can confirm first-hand Kenneth’s competence as an attorney as I recently engaged his services to represent me against my abusive landlord during the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced me to leave my apartment to take care of my family. As I attempted to get released from the lease, my landlord was trying to enforce abusive tactics upon me to let me go. To be released without penalty, the landlord wanted me to get a substitute tenant for the remaining three months on my lease plus an additional year after my lease end date. Initially, I individually exchanged multiple communications with my landlord. I realized no progress had been made, and my landlord was not willing to back down from their illegitimate requests. They were using their superior financial position to intimidate and harass me.
At that point, I decided to hire Kenneth. He diligently took the time to review my lease, analyze the situation, and took immediate action the same day. He is exceptionally passionate about his law practice and serves his clients to exceed expectations. Kenneth handled my case on a one-on-one basis. No intermediaries, a direct phone line to contact him, and was always readily available. He responded to the communications sent to him by my landlord within hours. He would later always inform me about every action taken on the case. Kenneth is a very proactive attorney. He was closely monitoring my case even when my landlord stopped responding to his communications. Having Kenneth as an attorney gave me confidence as he appropriately handled my case by being very professional and respectful with my landlord, yet aggressive and intimidating when needed. To Kenneth, it doesn’t matter who he is dealing against and does not hesitate to apply the force of the law to its fullest extent. Kenneth has over 18+ of law practice and knows how to govern his affairs properly. He was able to diligently and concisely negotiate with my landlord until they let me go without proceeding to court, rest assured he was willing to litigate if the issue escalated. With his representation, my landlord released me without conditions, not even for the remaining three months of my lease and without termination fees.
