"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.
★★★★★
"In the late summer of 2015, I had the misfortune of falling in a public place of business through no fault of my own. I was seriously injured, both my legs, which resulted in almost 6 months of modified bed rest and convalescing. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed with doctors; specialists; physical therapists and many other wonderful people. As if this was not daunting enough, it was told to me, in this time of utter chaos, I needed to engage an attorney. I have never had to hire an attorney..." R.W.W.
