The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny

A serious accident can leave a family traumatized, overwhelmed by hospital bills and other expenses, and aching for an answer.  But if your life has been turned upside down because of somebody else’s negligence, The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny will be here to represent you, answer your questions, and ensure that justice is served under the law.

We know that justice can often seem out of reach, more a matter of how much you have and who you know than what is truly fair.  This is where our New York personal injury lawyers can help.  The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is a different kind of law firm, one that is laser-focused on standing up for the average New Yorker instead of the rich and powerful.

TOP-RATED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS*

Our allegiance to the little guy over the corporate giant has been at the heart of this firm from the very beginning.  Founding Partner Richard M. Kenny knows the difficulties that working people face because he was one himself, paying the bills as a union construction worker by day while going to law school at night.  He has seen firsthand how devastating a single act of carelessness can be, and he has devoted his practice to rebalancing the scales of justice in favor of the everyday people of New York City.

While The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny has grown exponentially since it first opened its doors in 2002, the firm has never wavered from this core mission.  Richard is proud to have surrounded himself with like-minded, highly skilled legal practitioners, including:

Their efforts on behalf of wrongfully injured New Yorkers over the past two decades have not gone unnoticed.  Our top-rated New York personal injury attorneys have been honored with practically every possible commendation from their peers and inclusion in the directory of New York Super Lawyers®, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, the Best Attorneys of America, and the Legends Society of Top Lawyers in the United States.

AN EXPERIENCED, CLIENT-CENTERED PLAINTIFF’S LAW FIRM

But while we are pleased with the accolades we have received from other members of our profession, our firm remains committed first and foremost to providing first-rate, client-centered plaintiff’s law to the men and women of New York.  Our veteran personal injury lawyers bring over 100 years of collective experience to bear on factually complex cases against well-funded opponents.  We combine a small firm (or small town) level of personal attention to our clients with big firm (big city, New York-style) resources to take on some of the biggest corporations and insurance companies in the country.

As attorneys who have practiced in New York for the entirety of our careers, we are dedicated to giving back to the city that has given so much to us.  Since its inception, The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny has specialized in representing New York City firefighters hurt in the line of duty, securing a verdict in excess of $11 million for the families of three firefighters killed in a well-documented disaster.  We are especially proud of our pro bono work on behalf of the victims of the September 11th tragedy, obtaining more than $25 million for first responders who were injured while serving the city they love during its darkest hour.

Our NYC law firm has fought for clients in hundreds of trials throughout the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.  We have recovered more than $350 million in verdicts and settlements in a wide range of personal injury matters, including car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents, explosions, building collapses, negligent security claims, medical malpractice, birth injuries, nursing home abuse, and wrongful death.  Some of our firm’s many notable triumphs include:

  • $18 Million for a dockworker paralyzed in the Gulf of Mexico;
  • $13 Million for a woman who sustained catastrophic injuries in a car accident caused by a dangerously designed road;
  • $6.2 Million for a young man who lost a lower leg at a highway construction site;
  • $5.75 Million for a collision between a bicyclist and a New York City sanitation sweeper; and
  • $5.1 Million for an infant who suffered brain damage as a result of a traumatic delivery.

In addition to our extensive personal injury work, our firm has also successfully represented victims of civil rights violations, including police brutality and false arrests.

Our New York City personal injury attorneys have the courtroom experience and depth of knowledge necessary to get the maximum compensation available for our clients.  If you have been injured in an accident because of the reckless actions of another party, we invite you to trust The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny with your case.

Kenny, we know what a challenging time this must be for you and the ones you love, being forced to deal with mounting medical bills and unforeseen costs, possibly at a time when you are physically unable to work because of someone else’s misconduct.  But if you choose to retain our firm, you will never have to pay an out-of-pocket expense or attorney fee until we deliver a favorable verdict or settlement for your injuries.  With our No Fee Guarantee®, we will either win your case or it’s free.
