About Kendall

Learn Kendall’s areas of practice.

Experienced. Kendall Johnson has handled complicated and hotly contested family law cases for the over 28 years. This experience is valuable to his clients because he can draw on his knowledge base and get right to work on your specific needs. This can save time and money, as well as help assure you that important details are not overlooked which could jeopardize your case.

Peer-Reviewed. Kendall Johnson has received the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell, AV Preeminent. Martindale-Hubbell is the oldest, most established peer-review rating entity in the legal field, having been around for over 150 years. It is the “Gold Standard” for attorneys.

Tough when toughness is needed. In some cases, a dominate spouse tries to bully the other into yielding his or her legal rights. Or perhaps your spouse wound up with an inexperienced attorney who thinks bluster can make up for a lack of experience in family law. Such cases require a forceful approach, making the bully wish they had stuck to the high road.

No “one size fits all” philosophy. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. You need to find an attorney who has a complete toolbox. Kendall has invested in extensive training enabling him to assess your case and advise you about a full range of ways you can approach your case based on your unique situation.

There are times when the wise approach is to dial down the intensity. When the other spouse may be willing to seek common ground in some areas, especially when children are involved, you don’t want an attorney who is a bull in a china shop, stirring up animosity which will create needless stress, and a dark cloud which may linger for a lifetime. Many times Kendall has provided the cool head which de-escalated a case which could have easily spiraled out of control.

Trained collaborator. When both parties are willing to work together to come up with as peaceable solution as possible, collaboration can be a great option. By nature, collaboration tends to be more cost-effective. This is because the atmosphere is less litigious with you and your spouse more involved in pursuing an agreement which satisfies both of you.

Educated. Kendall earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1993, after earning a Bachelor of Science in Business from Oral Roberts University. He joined AV-rated law firm Savage O'Donnell as a partner in 2006. In 2020, he launched out on his own as a sole practitioner.

Connected. Actively engaged in the Tulsa community, Kendall has served on several committees within the Tulsa County Bar Association, the Tulsa River Parks Authority User Advisory Board, and serves in the leadership of the Tulsa Wheelmen Race Team. Kendall's efforts help the Wheelmen earn the prestigious Club of the Year National Award by USACycling in 2015.

Family man. Kendall has been married for over thirty years and has two children and one grandchild. Kendall and his wife attend Asbury United Methodist Church where they are very active in small-group and discipleship leadership and volunteer as mentors for engaged couples.

Great recovery for my personal injury case!
Kendall is a man of integrity and skillful attorney. Over the years he has advised me on my legal concerns. When I needed to hire an attorney for a personal injury case, he did a great job and got everything we asked for, much more than I had any idea I was due. It even covered a full year of doctors’ appointments and physical therapy. Had I not gone to him I would have had to pay for the medical bills on my own, so certainly would not have completed the full course of intensive therapy which helped reduce the pain and restore much of what I lost when my car was rear-ended. I have full confidence in his legal prowess and will certainly use him again if the need arises.

Our Champion!
I am still in the process of divorce. My adult children and I are SO incredibly grateful to Kendall. He is PHENOMENAL! It is truly amazing to watch him work. He always behaves in such a professional and dignified manner. Kendall’s keen insight, sharp focus, and masterly way with words is clearly evident. We think he is brilliant! He is also very patient with me and my inexperience with the law. He truly honors the Lord in his conduct regarding all concerned. I am so pleased to have him representing me.

Our Rock Star Superhero Attorney!
I hired Kendall to represent my children and I in a very complicated divorce / child custody case. We needed an honest, hard working, highly experienced attorney who would fight for us as if we were his own children. Kendall has done just that! My children and I call him our "Rock Star Superhero Attorney." I cannot even put into words just how wonderful he is. He is the absolute BEST at what he does as well as an incredible human being. Kendall and his staff have truly been there for my children and I. They are genuinely kind and compassionate people. We are beyond blessed to have him as our attorney. I have already recommended him to a friend of a friend who also hired him. I would highly recommend Kendall to anyone who wants an honest, hard working, go getter that is willing to put your needs first and fight for you as he would his own family.

Caring Professional Advocate
Kendall handled my personal injury suit, my first time to work with a lawyer. No question he always put my interests first while treating all parties with respect. I am far better off having hired him. I have and continue to recommend him to friends and family.

Excellent Experience
I hired Kendall to facilitate my divorce after he was referred to me by Christian Family Institute in Tulsa. He was always prompt and I felt like I had his full attention at our appointments. He suggested methods to cooperate instead of battling it out. But when it was necessary he came prepared to win and achieve ever goal we set forth in my case. The other attorneys respected him and so did the judges in the court room. He had extensive resources that we used to mediate my case. His outside resources and consultants helped to strengthen our case. He didn't hesitate to seek advise when needed. I have already referred other clients to Kendall and I hear from these referrals they too were provided the same excellent services I received.

Top Notch Attorney
Kendall Johnson is without a doubt the best legal representative I have ever had or could have hoped to hire to represent my family and me. He has represented my family with legal court matters as well as family consultation and other legal matters. I continually recommend Kendall Johnson to my friends and fellow workers at my company. He is professional, trustworthy, timely with his deliverables, and treats clients like me with dignity and respect and values me as a client. I can think of no better attorney in Tulsa than Kendall Johnson. Highly recommend Mr. Johnson.
