Our Approach

Our lawyers, Richard R. Kennedy and Richard R. Kennedy III, only handle cases involving the seriously injured and their families. We know that all cases (and ultimate decisions) belong to our clients. Therefore, we actively involve our clients by helping them gain a fundamental knowledge of the laws pertaining to their cases. 

We pledge unsurpassed dedication to every client and always provide:

  • A copy of everything we send and receive relating to a case
  • An open line of communication with our legal team, even at nights, on weekends, and on holidays
  • Full discussion, review, and explanation of all pleadings, discovery, and briefs before filing them

We act on the assumption that every case will go to trial. We will never sell you short or leave money on the table by avoiding a trial. We will only explore settlement possibilities, either through direct negotiation or through mediation, if we believe your opponent is willing to settle for fair compensation. We will never agree to settle without your consent.

"Richard is a fantastic attorney! He and his staff were incredible about keeping me well informed about my case and making sure that I got the absolute best settlement possible." Lila Barake, 5-Star Review
