CRAIG P. KENNY

ATTORNEY AT LAW
702-380-2800

Craig P. Kenny is the fourth child of seven of two hardworking immigrants who came to America for a better life. His mother, Rose Elisabeth, was born and raised in Germany and his father, Edward Lawder Kenny, was born in Canada. His parents married in Germany in 1949 and came to Chicago, Illinois shortly thereafter. Craig was born on Easter Sunday in Chicago and he was raised knowing that with hard work and perseverance you could do anything and be anything in this great country.

Unfortunately, the only reason Craig is an attorney is because his parents had two horrible experiences with attorneys. Both of Craig’s older brothers were tragically killed in personal injury accidents. When his older brother Michael was three years old, he was killed when he was struck by a truck while he was walking in a crosswalk with Craig’s older sister. The truck driver would later state that he never saw Craig’s brother. Craig’s other brother, Dale was killed fourteen years later.

His father was killed in a car accident when Mike was seven, which made him even more determined to become an attorney.
