Kennedy helps people who have been wronged by others to confidently navigate the civil justice system. Most of his work is focused in four main areas:
- Helping people hold insurance companies to account when claims get wrongly denied
- Working with employees and employers to resolve employment disputes
- Securing fair compensation for people who have been injured by the negligence of others
- Supporting survivors of sexual assault through litigation to recover vital compensation
Kennedy takes a principled approach to his work and fights hard to ensure that defendants can’t get away with abusing the system for improper gain. He believes in working closely and collaboratively with his clients and takes the time to ensure they thoroughly understand their legal options and have all the information they need to make their own informed decisions about how their cases should proceed.
A director of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association from 2019 to 2022, Kennedy is strong believer in OTLA’s mission to fearlessly champion the cause of Ontarians who have suffered injustice. He is also a member of the Hamilton Law Association and the Hamilton Medical-Legal Society.
Kennedy has been a partner with Nolan, Ciarlo LLP since 2020. Prior to that, he worked at a prominent Burlington personal injury law firm for 8 years. He was called to the bar in 2012 and received his LL.B. in 2011 from the University of Windsor where he was awarded the John H. Rodd (KC) Award in Conflicts. He obtained his B.A. in Political Science from McGill University in 2007, with a minor in Settlers of Catan.
