About
Simon Kennedy is an Arizona native and vividly recalls how small cities dotted vast areas of farmland and desert. He began his legal career in 2005 as a staff attorney for a large national insurance carrier and has since devoted his practice to litigation, insurance defense and coverage, business disputes, and governmental liability.

Mr. Kennedy is a magna cum laude graduate of the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University. After obtaining his Bachelors of Arts, he attended Indiana University law school and promptly returned to the desert since he was no match for snow.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Kennedy in several matters involving potential fraudulent claims. The materials I submitted for those claims were substantial and the facts underlying those claims were often not clear. Mr. Kennedy dug deep into those matters and conducted follow-up investigations to develop the true facts of the claims. His written evaluation provided our company with tools to the resolve the claims and Mr. Kennedy was able to communicate the results of his evaluations in conference calls with claims management. We achieved a high rate of successful case outcomes with Mr. Kennedy's assistance. Whether your matter deals with entity formation or litigation stemming from contracts or negligence, Mr. Kennedy's approach to handling matters thoroughly focuses on both the law and facts to reach the right outcome."

"Thank you for the work you performed with the first-party claims investigation we referred to your office. The claim required intensive investigation and your work product clearly outlined the necessary issues to complete it. As the case progressed, we were able to identify several key elements that had not been identified by our insured and we were able to completely resolve the file after your extensive efforts to obtain critical information to the claim. Your final recommendation fully evaluated the facts and clearly outlined the legal framework for us to resolve the claim."
