Have a Look – About Us and What Our Clients Say

“In the 11th hour of a propriety rights lawsuit, legal maneuvering had us buried in paperwork. The trial date was pending. My wife and I were defending our little company against a very large legal outfit in Palo Alto, hired by a former employer. They spent almost a million dollars to defeat us. We didn’t have anywhere near that kind of money. Then we discovered Grant. What a blessing. He not only returned our confidence and sense of humor, he beat them into submission. The case settled 18 hours before the trial was set to begin. The plaintiff (them) paid the defendant (us). We won without a trial. Even the judge smirked when he said it. Our life is back on track and better than ever. We are forever grateful to J. Grant Kennedy. Thank you! (true exact quote, name withheld as an unrequested courtesy to the client, whom I also thank for the honor of representing them in their time of need).
