Kenneth J. Mendelsohn's Profile Image

Kenneth J. Mendelsohn

Kenny Mendelsohn’s primary focus through his more than 30 years of practice has been representing victims of negligent drivers, including truck drivers and drunk drivers. He also represents and protects “whistleblowers” who have discovered fraud or other wrongdoing against government agencies.

Throughout his practice, Kenny has been dedicated to righting wrongs and serving his clients on a personal level. He meets with new clients at no charge and is happy to speak with them about their legal issues and how to choose the right attorney for their needs. Clients aren’t case numbers to him. They are fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. Kenny and his small team know they’ve done their job when clients call them not just trusted advocates for their future, but friends.

The success of Kenny’s experience and approach speaks for itself. Over the years, Jemison & Mendelsohn has achieved verdicts and settlements in excess of $100 million for injured clients and their families. In his whistleblower practice, for just one example, Kenny was instrumental in the case of United States v. Infosys which resulted in the largest settlement of an immigration violation in the history of the United States.

Kenny is a frequent public speaker and a published author on all aspects of litigation. He is a member of the Alabama Association for Justice.
