What Our Clients Say

We had the good fortune of direction to Atty. Kennan. Even before we became "official" clients, he took the time to listen, explain, and set up a meeting to advise next steps. He has vast knowledge and a very comfortable approach. Diligent, Responsive. Clear. Caring. We are delighted to have his support, knowledge, and compassion as we wade through some very complex estate issues. He is a jewel.

My husband and I were looking for a local attorney to discuss estate planning. We met John for an initial consult and were very pleased with his extensive knowledge base in that area which helped determine our current and future needs. He was extremely flexible regarding meeting times, which was very important to us, and had documents ready to be signed for us within a week. Thanks John for making this whole process so easy!

We were interested in finding a local attorney who could put together legal documents (will, power of attorney, etc.) We were very pleased with John Kennan's attention to detail in drafting these documents. After a consultation to determine our needs, attorney Kennan took care of everything in a timely and efficient manner. His work was thorough and reasonably priced. We would recommend attorney Kennan for those who might be contemplating any aspect of estate planning. It was a pleasure working with him.
