Possession of a controlled substance, dismissal
I was shocked to be arrested for a felony in Southlake, TX. Being unfamiliar with the legal system I was confused and scared after searching the internet about possession of a controlled substance. After I made a few phone calls to lawyers that popped after searching “Best criminal defense attorney Southlake, TX”, Jeff was the first one I talked to live. He quickly put me at ease and understood my concerns. After meeting with him live he demonstrated his deep understanding of the legal system and was able to put things in terms I could understand. He was honest when I asked him if I benchmarked his costs versus is competitors where he would come in. Since this was so important to me to have the best representation, it seemed like the right choice at the time. You get what you pay for, right? It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge! Jeff was proactive in his communication, set expectations, and knew his stuff. If you’re ever in an unfortunate situation like this I highly recommend Jeff.

Thank you!
This is my first time getting in trouble and i am happy that i found jeff. he's straight forward and he helped me greatly. I interviewed 2 other lawyers and finally decided to choose him. I also ran into his two other clients on different dates and they both agreed that hes done a great job for helping them in the past. Anyways I got a really nice deal with the court and i promised myself that i would write a review on this when the case is done. He might be a little expensive and sometimes hard to reach but hes worth it. I would hire him again.

Top knotch service which resulted in a favorable outcome
Jeff was the only lawyer who responded immediately to our request for help in the middle of the night. He was always available, responsive to our questions and really took the time to help us which ultimately resulted in a very positive outcome out of a very negative experience. Would highly recommend Jeff above all other criminal attorneys. We truly appreciate everything you did for our family.

Jeff Kennedy helped me to obtain an outright dismissal of a possession of controlled substance charge and future expungement of the case from records. He was extremely helpful, professional, and accessible throughout the process and achieved the best case scenario in this circumstance. For every circumstance that came about through the process Jeff had a solution, I would highly recommend him for any similar cases.

Hired for defense against a class A DWI
I was arrested for a first time DWI back in June of 2022. This attorney is straight forward and truly has your best interests in mind. Be honest and straight forward with yourself so he has the best opportunity to assist you. My class A DWI was pled down to a class B. I would recommend Mr. Kennedy and Mr.Kennedy alone if someone close was in the need of a defensive attorney.

Outright Dismissal
My wife hired Jeff Kennedy while I was still sitting in jail. When I got out it was 4am so I waited a little later to call Jeff myself to see what I needed to do. He gave me great advice and did an OUTSTANDING job and got me dismissal from both my charges. When I can expunge these charges I will be hiring Jeff again to do so!!

Best possible outcome /DWI over .15
I am so grateful I hired Jeff Kennedy as my attorney for a DWI. Jeff was professional, efficient and effective in handling my case and getting the best possible outcome. I live out of state and was arrested for DWI while visiting, my BAC test came back above .15. Jeff Kennedy was so knowledgeable and comforting after such an ordeal. I was able to do the simple tasks needed online and through email. He got the .15 enhancement waived and saved me from having an interlock device put on my car. Jeff took care of everything so all I had was a bit of paperwork and the case was settled easily, quickly and favorably for me. I highly recommend hiring Jeff Kennedy if you find yourself needing a criminal defense lawyer. I’m so very grateful I chose him.

Results Driven & Professional Attorney
Attorney Jeff Kennedy was able to clearly communicate with me realistic outcomes of my case, while planning a list of actions for me to proactively take prior to the court date. By taking his advice, which was not only sound but simple, he was able to deliver dismissal of all felony charges in Tarrant County, Texas. He has saved my professional career, as I am the sole income for my family. I cannot say enough good things about this bold, powerhouse of an attorney. If you find yourself in legal trouble and need a direct path to clarity with the best possible outcome, hire Jeff Kennedy.

Jeff C. Kennedy got my charges dropped!
I was in a pretty dark place in my life but it was really nice to have someone say something to me, mean it, actively work to make it happen and come through for me. That person was Jeff C. Kennedy. Before I hired him, he told me to do what he said and not to worry. After I hired him, I followed his instructions but couldn't help but worry. It was not necessary, because he got my charges dropped. I'm looking forward to a bright future once again.

Best choice
Hiring Mr.Kennedy was the best choice I’ve made, He walked me through every step of the case and told me exactly what to do, Dismissed everything all the way from class A and class B misdemeanor, his cam demeanor and confidence and FYI I’ve over heard at court other lawyers referring to Mr.Kennedy as a “bada**” and he certainly is.
