"In my interaction with Mr. Kenny, he successfully protected a small company's interests against a well-orchestrated national fraud. I had occasion to refer a number of other businesses to him in this matter. Mr. Kenny handled the matter with a combination of first-rate, sophisticated lawyering with close attention and understanding of business needs. Throughout my interactions, Mr. Kenny constantly and clearly communicated with me and the clients I referred. He is an excellent professional, and I would highly recommend him."
