Attorney Timothy Kennedy has been certified as a specialist in the practice of workers' compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Section on Workers' Compensation Law, as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
Mr. Kennedy obtained his law degree (Juris Doctor) in 1992 from Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey, a highly competitive law school rated as one of the best in the country. Mr. Kennedy there had the very great honor of becoming a Law Review Editor, a distinction recognized by other lawyers as the mark of a truly ambitious and hard-working attorney. Tim also worked in the coveted position of research and writing assistant for the internationally known constitutional law expert who drafted the constitution of the Russian Republic in 1991 and forty other national constitutions world-wide, and is credited as a coauthor for some of that scholar's published works of that era. Tim also obtained perhaps the most impressive and immediate success of anyone in his law school class, securing a summer associate position with a large and prestigious Philadelphia firm after just his first year of legal study.
Graduating in 1992, Tim immediately passed the Pennsylvania Bar examination and was admitted to practice. By that time, he was no longer interested in leading or even joining the herd pursuing large firm practice. Instead, Tim was committed to representing injured individuals and helping people to use the legal system as a means to better their lives - advancing and protecting the rights of injured workers caught in a system where insurance companies seek to depict honest victims of work-related injuries as if their lives and their claims had no value. Tim wanted to take on the insurance companies, as a litigator fighting for individuals hurt in the workplace.
For more than twenty years, Tim has concentrated his practice on representing injured workers, persons who have suffered serious work-related injuries or occupational diseases, the families and survivors of those who have been killed on the job or died due to the effects of work-related illnesses or injuries. He knows the law and he knows the practice. He knows how to secure and advance the rights of his clients.
Mr. Kennedy has established himself as a uniquely skilled and accomplished Pennsylvania workers compensation attorney, certified by authority of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as a Workers' Compensation law specialist. He has clients throughout eastern Pennsylvania. He is appreciated by his clients, respected by his colleagues and feared by his adversaries.
The Law Offices of Timothy Kennedy maintains a primary office on North Eagle Road in Havertown, Pennsylvania, convenient to the Blue Route and at the very center of the five county Philadelphia region. Mr. Kennedy also maintains a satellite office at the Neshaminy Interplex, for the convenience of the firm's Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County clients.
Tim resides in Delaware County with his wife of twenty-plus years and their two sons.
