The information on this site is for informational purposes only. If you respond to this website by e-mail, you will receive a response. However, neither the posting of this web page, the acceptance of e-mail, nor the return of an e-mail inquiry, is intended to create an attorney-client relationship, and does not create any obligation on behalf of either side. The Law Office of Robert. D. Kennedy will only enter into a lawyer-client relationship when a complete contract has been signed by both the client and the law firm, after a full and thorough discussion and investigation of the applicable facts.
Robert D. Kennedy is at this point the only lawyer employed with the Law Office of Robert D. Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy is licensed to practice law within the State of Texas, but he is not licensed in other states and he therefore does not ordinarily accept cases outside the State of Texas. Robert D. Kennedy is Board-Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is not certified in any other area of specialization.
The law firm is aware that the Internet crosses state and national boundaries, and that this site may therefore be accessed by persons outside the State of Texas. This is not an invitation or solicitation to anyone who has a claim arising outside the State of Texas. If you have a claim that arose outside of the State of Texas, you should consult an attorney in your home state, or the state where the claim arose, to determine your rights. Do not rely on the information in this site in lieu of consulting an attorney, because it is not advice of a legal nature.
The Law Office of Robert D. Kennedy cannot and does not guarantee the success of any case the firm may handle on behalf of a client. Your ability to prevail in any claim is entirely dependent on the individual facts of your claim. Past success in similar claims is no guarantee or indication that similar results necessarily can be obtained with respect to your claim. Also, even if you are able to prevail on a claim, that does not necessarily mean that you will be able to collect on the claim or judgment.
Claims can be handled on an hourly fee basis, a pure contingency fee basis, or a negotiated partial hourly/partial contingency fee basis. If handled on a pure contingency fee basis, the recovery to the attorneys is negotiable, but those fees generally range from 33 1/3% to 50% of any recovery, depending on many factors. Although this is also negotiable, if accepted on a contingency fee basis, in most instances the client is not required to advance any fees, expenses, or costs in connection with the claim. However, in that instance any expenses incurred in connection with the claim would be reimbursed to the law firm out of the client's portion of any recovery. In other words, the contingent fee calculation is based on the gross amount of the recovery, before subtraction of expenses.
