I am a medical professional and I am NOT easy to work with. I am critical and very particular when it comes to professional services. I first met Mr. Kenney for estate planning and asset protection needs. His ability to sit with me and my wife for several hours to first understand our needs and then to make clear his recommendations was extraordinary. In very understandable, non-legal terms he was able to communicate to us the proper structure for our family's optimal position to manage against the vagaries of life, and to have our family protected were something to happen to me or my wife. He went on to deliver an amazing product, very fairly priced and with remarkable access for clarification or other questions that required his interpretation.
Since our initial professional engagement with him we have had several other professional encounters with Mr. Kenney and the same expedited, well thought out and professional service was rendered. It should also be mentioned that the experience of his professional staff is clearly top notch, as my interactions with them have always produced whatever result was desired. The office is responsive --Mr Kenney responds to emails consistently within 24 hours, but usually within only several hours. I had a closing for a particular investment on December 31st, and the office paralegal basically jumped through rings of fire to get the work done in time to be able to fund the investment.
Beyond his own very affable style and professional expertise Mr Kenney has associates in related, but non-legal fields that complement what he does. Currently my insurance broker, CPA and the custodian of my self-directed IRA (created by Mr. Kenney) are referrals from his network of professionals. When the original custodian was bought out and the new company stopped managing self-directed IRAs he had me in touch with another equally as qualified office in less than 30 minutes (honest)! My experience with Mr. Kenney is such that I can recommend him without reservation for estate planning, asset protection, self-directed IRA, or LLC needs. I suspect there is more he does with equal aplomb, but I have not sought his counsel in any other area than those mentioned above.

With the sudden diagnosis of my husband’s aggressive brain tumor, we were fortunately referred to Attorney John Kenney in Poulsbo.
My husband and I felt relieved by John’s compassion for our situation, and then comfortable with his organized and experienced handling of our estate planning needs. During our first session, legal matters were explained in plain English, and repeated patiently when asked again and again.
John’s knowledge in Estate Planning left us feeling that he would take care of our legal matters, while we concentrated on living the rest of the year to its fullest.
The Estate Planning Portfolio, prepared by John and Colleen of his staff, was clearly tabbed for easy retrieval and access by family members. He felt a need to review the Estate Planning Documents with our adult son as well. This would make it easier for any future interactions.
Within a year my husband passed away, and John helped us immensely with the Trust administration, working with our financial advisor and CPA. What a comfort that was.
John responded promptly to all our questions and concerns, and kept us informed of the status of legal matters. In the last 5 years, I have continued to rely on his office for related legal matters, and feel grateful that he is always available to help me and my family.

John is a very ethical and saavy attorney with special interests in estate planning and real estate. He is very easy to understand and has a passion for legal issues surrounding an estate, trusts and real estate transactions. I recommend him without reservations.

John is widely regarded as a local expert in the area of Trusts and Estates, so when I had a complicated trust issue arise a family law case I was working on, I sought a legal opinion from John. He was quick to complete the opinion, which was thorough and helped my client better understand the some of the more nuanced issues with their trust and how it intersected with potential outcomes in their family law matter. John is friendly, well respected and I often refer clients with complicated trust and estate issues to him for representation.

I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Kenney. I have known John for decades, have worked alongside John in the same firm, have worked with him as co-counsel many times, and can therefore recommend him without any reservation. John offers his clients the highest care and expertise in estate planning, asset protection, and business planning, and is a trusted counselor in Washington State. Whether you are in need of a simple update to your existing planning, or have complex estate and business planning needs, John will provide you with excellent advice, service and support, and do so with a high degree of compassion and diligence.
