Kennedy is a Burlington lawyer representing people in injury & insurance claims, and helping sexual assault survivors recover compensation
Kennedy helps injured people navigate the legal system.
Most of his work is focused in three main areas:
- Helping people hold their insurance companies to account when their claims are wrongly denied
- Securing fair compensation for people who have been injured by the negligence of others
- Helping survivors of abuse & assault understand their options and recover funding for what they have endured
Kennedy takes a personal and collaborative approach to working with his clients, ensuring they thoroughly understand their legal options and have the all tools and information they need to make their own informed decisions about how their cases should proceed.
He is a strong believer in the role the civil justice system can play in empowering people who have been wronged. Unfortunately, the system is often stacked against injury victims, survivors of assault, and people forced into an unfair fight with a giant, well-resourced insurance company. The power imbalance between ordinary people seeking fair compensation and the defendants who have wronged them is often stark.
Kennedy works to help people stand up for their rights by guiding them through Ontario's complex tort and insurance systems. He takes a principled approach to his work and fights hard to ensure that insurance companies and other defendants can't get away with abusing the system for their own gain.
When he's not busy battling insurance companies, Kennedy can usually be found hijacking the firm’s Twitter account to troll insurance companies online, writing computer programs to solve problems that could have been solved manually with half the time & effort it took him to write the program, or happily lost in the woods exploring unmarked trails with his wife around his hometown of Hamilton.
Kennedy graduated from McGill University in 2007 with an undergraduate degree in political science and received his LL.B. from the University of Windsor in 2011 (the extra year in between was mostly spent playing Settlers of Catan). He joined Martin & Hillyer as a lawyer in 2012 after articling with the firm.
