Client Testimonials

Richard Kennedy III brings commitment and compassion to his clients. Richard guided me along the way while keeping my best interest in mind. He was able to give me hope and reassurance when I was afraid and unaware of my upcoming consequences. He has eased my troubles all throughout my case. Words can not express my gratitude. It has been an honor to have Richard Kennedy III represent me.

MC, Lafayette


All my life I have heard horror stories about lawyers who rarely return phone calls or e-mails of their clients and have not represented the clients in a manner in which was expected of them . So when I contacted Mr. Kennedy I was to say the least: "apprehensive" since I have never had to deal with a lawyer that would handle such an extensive case and look out for my wellbeing, not just as a client, but also as a working man who's life was turned upside down due to the negligence of a company that caused me the inability to work and take of my family. Mr. Kennedy has kept me posted on all matters of my case and always accepted or returned my calls and e-mails in a timely manner. Mr. Kennedy is a man of his word and works diligently to bring justice to you and your family and not only looks at your case from the inside out but also thinks outside the box to better assist you.

Throughout the duration of our case, I could never have imagined that any team of lawyers would take so much time, be so thorough, treat me and my family as their own, and so convincingly win the case as did Richard and Richard III.

I wasn't sure on how to go about trying to get my life back after an accident. A friend, Jay Wilkinson, recommended I speak with Richard Kennedy located in downtown Lafayette, LA. While some wouldn't consider it a big accident, it derailed my life. I was self employed business analyst, my clients were all over the county (Dallas, Houston, Ft. Collins, West Sacrament, San Francisco, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Las Vegas). My ability to travel, as well as, do my job became impossible. After speaking with Mr. Kennedy, we formulated a plan to go forward...first, he had me evaluated to make sure the problems I was having were not the result of some other causes. Then, they investigated all aspects. Always keeping me informed along the way. They make sure you fully comprehend everything and take the time to answer questions and concerns. They are also protective of you, not just during depositions but the entire process.

The unimaginable comes knocking at some point for all us, and ours was on that misty January morning in 2003. After the truck slammed into us on Hwy 90, serious injuries with long hospitalizations and multiple surgeries loomed. Within a week, it was obvious that I needed an exceptional personal injury lawyer to battle an uncooperative and unsympathetic  trucking company, but I was clueless on who to call. I asked 10 respected friends in the Lafayette area for their honest opinions and/or experiences with local attorneys. After narrowing my list to 4, I proceeded to call each for an "interview". I needed to see and sense character, passion, and personal care for me, my family, and our case. Richard Kennedy had actually been recommended by an attorney friend of mine who highly respected his courtroom manner. One visit convinced me that Richard was the one. Throughout the duration of our case, I could never have imagined that any team of lawyers would take so much time, be so thorough, treat me and my family as their own, and so convincingly win the case as did Richard and Richard III. I went searching for an attorney--I gained friends for a lifetime.
