Byron Kennedy was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University, where he was a distinguished military graduate. After serving in the U.S. Army, and later a career in sales and publishing, he obtained his law degree from Stetson University where he graduated in the top third of his class while working full time. He has been a member of the Florida Bar since 2007.
Byron has extensive trial experience, a strong bargaining chip against the insurance carriers who are aware which lawyers will “pull the trigger” and try and a case, rather than folding at the last minute to take the “last best offer.”
Byron is licensed to practice in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida as well as all counties in the State of Florida. He has tried cases in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Sumter counties. He is a member of the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association, Florida Justice Association and the Florida Bar.
Byron and his wife of twenty-five years have three children and live in St. Petersburg, Florida.
