PERSONAL ONE-ON-ONE ATTENTION TO YOUR CASE FROM A HIGHLY EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY.

I have been helping people with personal injury cases since 1994 . Dealing with insurance companies is not easy, and they are going to do everything that they can to defeat your claim. Before starting my firm, I worked as an attorney for the insurance companies. I gained valuable insight into how they approach these cases and I will use this knowledge to get you a fair offer. I handle all types of personal injury matters

I am a solo practitioner. That means when you work with me, you get to work side-by-side with a lawyer who has spent his entire legal career handling personal injury cases. There is no junior associate or paralegal who is actually doing the work in your case. I know this is not the way the big flashy firms with million dollar advertising campaigns operate. You will not be handed off to an associate and become just another client in their machine. You are important to me and I will take the time to get to know you and your case and dedicate myself to helping you along every step of your case.

Excellent Lawyer
Bill is a great lawyer. He helped my husband and I with our suit. He was very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. He knew everything about injury cases and the law. We will use him again if we need any legal advise. We highly recommend William Kendall.

Great Personal Injury Lawyer
Bill really came through after a car accident. The insurance company of the other driver didn't even want to pay the medical bills in full. He got them to pay the bills, something that I could not have done on my own.

Good honest lawyer
I had a accident on the freeway . Rear ended by a semi. Their insurance was not very responsive to my requests. Bill made time for me and took care of everything. No time off work,made sure I was OK before negotiating with the insurance. He made them treat me fair. Thanks again Bill.

My go-to lawyer
I have been working with Mr. Kendall since 2002. He has helped me with several cases, all of which ended in my favor. Mr. Kendall has never shown an inkling of incompetence or unprofessionalism. He is direct and incredibly knowledgeable, a no-holds-barred kind of guy. I am pleased to continue business with him and have been recommending clients to him with every opportunity.

Slip and Fall
Subsequent to my initial consultation with Attorney William R. Kendall I concluded that he was an open, fair and competent professional who had the experience and knowledge that could and would ensure that I received just compensation for my injuries. Knowing the difficulty and uncertainty attached slip and fall cases I was quite apprehensive. Attorney Kendall reassured me that in spite of the difficulty involved that he would utilize his knowledge and professional experience in similar cases to obtain justifiable results for me. He was open to my concerns and accessible when I needed consultation and in the end, obtained results that were well above my expectations. As a retired Marine Corps Officer, disabled veteran, and college professor who has, in my lifetime, dealt with many attorney's. and as an individual who expects perfection in those I interact with, I can say without question, that Attorney William R. Kendall earned my respect and trust. I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking an competent attorney. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate him as a "10."

"ONE OF A KIND', rare for his breed.
I have known Bill Kendall for several year when he handled both my daughters' car accidents and one in which I was a passenger. He is most competent and knowledgeable, yet exceptionally personable, explaining details with the greatest tact and caring. You are made to fee that you are his only concern and he takes the time necessary to answer your concerns. I will continue to recommend him and will most certainly hire him again, should the occasion arise.

Great experience!
Bill Kendall helped me with my car accident injury case. Being a small business owner and sole operator, I just didn't have the time or the energy to deal with the insurance companies, etc. Bill took my nightmare and brought it to a very positive conclusion with very little participation on my part - which is why I hired him to begin with. I like that he was very honest and straight-forward and he ended up negotiating a very fair settlement for me. To top it all off, he's a really nice and friendly person! Thank you Bill!

BEST EVERRRRR!!!!!!
My Sis gave me RAVE REVIEWS of him, so I hired him, more than once. I have also referred him to many of my Friends, Family and Acquaintances He is always, efficient, extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind, very friendly, honest (unlike other Attorneys), courteous, jovial, helpful, goes the extra mile, ALL the things one would want in an Attorney and a Person. He takes time for my trivial concerns, unlike some other Attorneys I have hired. I even tried to use him for my Divorce, but just couldn't persuade him to delve in to that water with me.

Excellent lawyer
Bill was very accommodating and worked with me to make sure I received all the correct treatment for my injury. I was very pleased with his knowledge of how and what needed to be done so that I would recover from the car accident I was involved in. He is a kind hearted and caring person which I thought was not going to be found in any lawyer.

Stay Away
This guy is terrible. He is completely incompetent and does not know a thing about child custody/child support issues. Please do yourself a favor and stay far away from this lawyer. Every time I would send him a email he would say that he couldn't find the email. If anything needed to be investigated about the case, he wouldn't do it and relied on me to do so. He had no clue what the child support laws where and again relied on me to find out. After getting the run around, I confronted him and he got mad and said I think it's time you find a new lawyer. Oh yeah this is after he charged me a $3,000 retainer fee. I could of done better all by myself.
