Great attorney
James is a great attorney. He helped me with my child custody battle and won my case for me. As a father, I have not seen my daughter’s in years and James made it possible. Worth the money spent. He is very knowledgeable and very persistent. I’m very happy that I hired James as my attorney. I would recommend him to anyone that needs a attorney in Tennessee.

James Kenis will stand up for you!
Back in August 2019 I go a terrifying phone call in the middle of the night – my mother’s house was on fire. I had no idea of the nightmare that was just beginning. Insurance investigators were questioning my mom, denying the policy she had paid for all those years, and using a lawyer. Mom was certain that she was going to lose everything that she and my dad worked so hard for. My husband and I decided it was time to protect my mom and we called Krenis Law. We explained everything that was going on and James didn’t just try to make us feel better. He told us the truth, but he also promised to do everything he could to make things right. We came away feeling that things might not work out like we wanted, but at least we knew that someone would be standing up for my mom. Just a couple of months ago James asked us to meet him at his office. We went in figuring that we would be discussing the depositions we had done or some other pending legal procedure, but instead James presented my mom with checks from the insurance company that covered the full amount of her loss! I couldn’t be more grateful or happier with the services that Krenis Law provided for all of us. If you need a lawyer to fight for you, then do not hesitate to call the Krenis Law Firm. He will certainly be the first lawyer I call if I ever need one personally.

Satisfied Client
I contacted Mr. Krenis about my complicated DUI case. He handled it in the upmost professional manner. Also, he pleaded my case to authorities and was able to negotiate dismissal of DUI charge. I would highly recommend Mr. Krenis.

I’ve heard good things about Mr. Krenis
I’ve heard good things about Mr. Krenis and his billboard. We decided we needed a lawyer who wasn’t a public defender. We know Mr. Krenis is going to help us! It helps that he speaks Spanish and knows about criminal law.

Immigration
I called Chris law about my immigration case and was able to make an appointment quickly. When I met Mr. Krenis he seemed concerned about my case and explain my options and gave me good advice. I didn’t hire him right away but we plan to at that time for financial reasons but will call him when I am able to do so.

Genuinely cared about my case
I called Krenis law about my legal matter and was able to make an appointment quickly. When I met Mr. Krenis he seemed genuinely concerned about my case and gave me good advice. After my consultation, and with the good advice given to me, I feel confident that he was the attorney I wanted to handle my case. I will contact Krenis law for any other legal issues I may have in the future and would recommend Krenis sought all my friends and family who are in need of legal representation.

Krenis Law will not only meet but exceed all your expectations
After finding out my wife was having an affair I had no clue how to go about protecting myself or my children from further damage. James & Leslie worked quickly to get started on the case. They truly understood the gravity of the circumstances. It was nice to be able to walk away from consultations, and meetings knowing that someone else actually listened and was ready to fight fully to represent their client. They did an excellent job comprehending the situation and even suggesting legal advice that i would not have normally heard of. They will teach you how to keep a diary, learn the importance of pictures, discern what information is important and why it's important to disregard petty items that would otherwise poison your case. I loved the way that if i needed immediate attention in the instance of an emergency situation they were there hand and foot. Leslie was excellent with technology as most paralegals are oblivious to anything beyond a word document. She handled making tons of copies, sorting, pictures, emails, voice files you name it. The meetings and time were always considered with me as the best interest, like offering a convenient time for me. I was always asked if i needed a beverage. If there was dead silence after a few days they would call to see if there were any changes. They are glad to furnish to you a list of charges / expenditures to help you account to where your retainer is going. If true honesty is what you demand James will hold no punches. I loved the way he took my case personal and literally took the fight off my hands. They were on time for every meeting, on time for court. The results speak for themselves. I believe they may have set a precedence. I am a father of two who won full custody against the mother! As a man i never expected alimony or child support. Because of them i was granted both! Lastly they listened to my main request and even made it possible to keep my home. I walked out of the court room feeling for the first time in years that yes justice was served, and it is possible for the little guy to win.

AVVO RATING 3.8 (Caution)

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2020.

Censured issued in TN, 2020
updated on 01/22/2021

When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

James's comment: “Look at my Google reviews. This is the first discipline I have had in my 20 year career as a lawyer, and it was due to an angry domestic law client. They tried to crush my rating with a misleading and inaccurate complaint. If I disputed it with the licensing authority I would have been given the same discipline or worse. You won't be sorry if you give us a call!”

Publicly Censured issued in TN, 2020
updated on 08/11/2023

This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
