Our Unique Perspective Helps Build Strong Cases

A personal injury claim will be scrutinized by multiple parties, each with an inherently different point of view. The three parties who will evaluate the value of the claim are:

  • Plaintiff - The injury victim, his or her family, estate, or other representative.
  • Defense - The party who caused the accident, anyone legally responsible for that party’s conduct, and the insurance company.
  • Neutral decision-maker - The judge, jury, mediator or arbitrator who will decide the case.

Attorney Kenison worked for large insurance defense firms before founding his own law practice. He also has years of experience as a professional arbitrator and mediator. This background allows him to evaluate a personal injury case from all sides. More importantly, it allows him to present his client’s claim in such a way that all parties involved ultimately arrive at a fair valuation.

Together, the team at Kenison Law Office offers an outstanding combination of personalized service, legal knowledge, compassion and courtroom prowess.

"My husband was in a Motorcycle accident on June 11, 2014. He was seriously injured and spent several weeks in a trauma unit and 4 weeks in a rehab facility after several surgeries. I called John Kenison the day after the accident and he walked me through the difficult process of how to handle hospital bills and how to contact the Insurance companies involved. My husband was out of work for 4 months and Kenison Law was able to help us recover all loss wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. They are a caring law firm and are able to explain complex information during a vehicle difficult situation. I would highly recommend this law office." M. H.
