About Christopher R. Kennedy, Senior Lead Litigator

Family law tends to create highly personal and stressful situations. But that’s actually what Peoria divorce attorney Christopher R. Kennedy finds appealing about the practice.

“I feel that in what can be one of the most traumatic and emotional times in a person’s life, clients need someone who can look at the issues objectively, keep a clear head in a time of highly charged emotion, and provide sound advice not motivated by animosity, guilt, or as a result of distress,” Mr. Kennedy said.

Clients have a lot to deal with when going through a divorce. They can’t always make rational decisions in those situations.

“I can counsel and guide them on what rights they have in regards to their children, families, and property, and represent them on the legal issues as they deal with their current emotional situation,” Mr. Kennedy said. “Men, and fathers, in particular, are underserved by and experience bias in family court, and I find great satisfaction in helping to level the playing field through my representation.”

Mr. Kennedy says lawyers are not referred to as “counselors” arbitrarily. Clients need to feel they are heard, and excellent listening skills are essential to practicing law.

“My ability to listen objectively and without judgment allows me to connect with my clients, identify what issues are most important to them, and represent them effectively and efficiently,” he said. “Demonstrating objective compassion has helped me immensely in my practice.”

When clients meet with Mr. Kennedy, they can expect a safe space to communicate all of the facts relevant to their case.

“I am here to listen, without judgment, and to provide them an objective and honest opinion on what options they have,” he said.


Mr. Kennedy is licensed to practice in Arizona.


Mr. Kennedy earned his Bachelor of Arts in Filmmaking/Animation from Columbia College in Chicago. He received his Juris Doctor from Arizona Summit Law School.

Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
