About Our Firm

We founded Kennedy Payne, P.C. with the goal of providing top-tier legal services to Bay Area businesses without the high costs and inefficiencies that make traditional “big law” firms inaccessible for all but the largest companies. We help entrepreneurs, up-and-coming businesses, and established companies remove barriers to growth by solving business disputes as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We are a minority and women-owned law firm that embraces technology to eliminate unnecessary overhead costs. We pass those overhead savings onto our clients by offering reasonable hourly rates and a variety of non-traditional pricing models that give clients control over how they are billed for our legal services.

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the challenges, hard work, and effort that go into running a business. We value our clients’ satisfaction and make it our goal to give you peace of mind as you continue to build your business.

Smart Strategies

Handling disputes effectively requires weighing the effect of the dispute on your business goals against the financial impact of legal action. We work with you to understand the whole picture and craft a proactive plan that balances the risks, rewards, and costs so that our advocacy aligns with your business priorities.

Easy Communication

We understand that you have a busy schedule. While in-person meetings can be useful, we leverage technology to connect with you from wherever you are. This means we keep you up to date on your case more efficiently and at a lower cost.

Flexible Pricing

We never want you to be blindsided by your legal bills. To avoid unwelcome surprises, we openly discuss billing options with you before representation. In general, we offer hourly billing, project-based fixed legal fees, or quoted fee caps.

Straightforward Service
