Founding Attorney Patricia Kuendig pursued law out of a desire to help people when they needed it most. For the first few years of her practice, Patricia worked on complex divorce and family law matters from her office in Miami, FL. She credits that experience with her comfort and confidence in the courtroom, as well as at the negotiating table. After several years, Patricia decided to expand her practice to incorporate more areas of law to help people that need it the most. Among those areas was personal injury law and wrongful death.
In 2016, Patricia’s mother was hit by a bus while in a crosswalk. Her mother passed away from her injuries. In an instant, Patricia’s life changed. She, along with her brother, became a plaintiff in a wrongful death lawsuit. Patricia has a renewed passion for helping accident victims and their families ever since.
Recognized Leader in Law
Through hard work and determination, Patricia has distinguished herself in the legal community. She is a faculty member of the Houston Family Law Trial Institute. Along with several publications and awards to her name, she has given lectures on a variety of trial-related subjects for organizations such as the Utah Association for Criminal Defense Lawyers, The Georgia Bar, The Los Angeles County Bar Association, The Lousiana Association for Justice, and the Oklahoma State Bar's Family Law Section.
Patricia is a regular presenter and faculty member at the Roger Dodd Trial Skills Clinic and has taught lawyers from all over the United States and foreign countries, including Canada, England and Colombia.
Patricia earned a B.S. from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a J.D. from George Washington University.
While working on her J.D. at George Washington University, Patricia interned for a U.S. District Court Judge and the U.S. Department of Justice. Her time in school may be done, but as a lifelong learner, she is always looking for new ways to help her clients.
