Nearly 15 years ago, Kendall Jones was the lead attorney in her first trial -- she represented the defendants, a small real estate company that was being wrongfully sued. Moments into Kendall's opening statement, the judge picked up the phone and whispered something into it. Kendall worried that she had done something wrong or was boring the judge. To the contrary, the judge was calling her clerk, telling her to notify every available clerk in the courthouse that they should come to her courtroom and watch this young female attorney. Kendall won the trial on directed verdict, having cross-examined the plaintiff so effectively that she won before even having to put up a defense. After the trial, the judge called Kendall back into her chambers to specially compliment Kendall on her professionalism, preparation, and talent. It was a heady moment that Kendall would never forget.
But it was not the last such moment in Kendall's legal career. Another came when Kendall received a call from a producer of the television news show "20/20," asking about the possibility of doing a story on one of her cases. A columnist from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution once referred to Kendall as a "bulldog" (which she took as a compliment!). And one of her biggest honors came in 2006, when she was recognized in the U.S. Congress as an exemplary business leader and positive female role model.
Still, it's the clients who hear about Kendall and seek out her representation that flatter her the most. Kendall started her legal career working as a litigator for some of the biggest, most prestigious law firms in the country -- so many times, she saw the little guy get squashed by more heavily-funded opponents. Kendall decided to use her big firm experience to give those "little guys" a level playing field. She doesn't take too many cases at once so she can devote the maximum time and energy possible to her current clients. To Kendall, each client matters, and each case deserves her full attention and passion.
Sure, Kendall could have stayed with the big firms, representing giant corporations, and making a ridiculous income. But here's the secret: Kendall has been an entrepreneur and small business owner herself, having owned and run several businesses while also dealing with a growing family, decreasing home values, increasing gas prices, and all of the other issues that real people have to struggle with every day. In other words, Kendall gets it. She understands your needs and your priorities, and she knows that you do not want either your life or pocketbook wrapped up in a lengthy mess of litigation.
Kendall will never "churn" your case or pad your bill. She will always look for strategies that will effectively and cost-efficiently make a big impact, and she will explain your options to you every step of the way so you have some control over the course of your lawsuit. Whenever possible, Kendall will work on a contingency or flat fee basis, enabling you to seek the damages you need to compensate you for your injuries without having to spend an unpredictable fortune on legal fees. But even for those cases where alternative fees don't work, Kendall can often provide you with various options for covering her fees, so you can find a way that works best for you and your circumstances. And if your case is really big, Kendall has relationships with several outstanding, respected large litigation firms; she can bring them in to assist when needed, though Kendall will still be your main attorney.
