Kennedy “Kenny” Lee focuses his practice on helping transfer assets left behind to the family and friends after a loved one has passed away. For many people, handling a trust or estate after the death of a loved one is a new experience and can be overwhelming and confusing. Kenny explains and discusses legal matters with his clients in plain terms that are easy to understand. This helps make the process as painless and simple as possible because his clients have other, more important matters to worry about.
Kenny currently serves as the managing partner of Rushforth Lee & Kiefer LLP and leads the probate and trust administration practice group. He is recognized as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable probate attorneys in Clark County, Nevada. Because of this, Kenny has been rated AV/Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. This rating is based on a combination of achieving a high rating for both ethical standards and legal ability. Only an very select group of approximately 10 percent of all attorneys holds an AV Preeminent Rating (a designation trusted worldwide).
As opposed to many other attorneys who often complicate matters further, Kenny’s practice philosophy is to help clients resolve issues and complete cases as quickly and efficiently as possible. To do so, Kenny educates his clients so they can make informed decisions regarding the best path for their case. While Kenny focuses primarily on probate and trust administration matters, he is often called upon to strategize and assist with trust and estate litigation matters. Additionally, in contested matters, Kenny has served as a third-party neutral fiduciary and is often active in mediations to help settle cases.
In his spare time, Kenny enjoys spending time with his wife and five kids. If he is not in the office or at home, he is often at the golf course. As an avid golfer, he carries a low, single-digit handicap. Kenny enjoys volunteering with his local church and has spent many years working with the youth. He served a two-year service mission in Japan where he learned to speak Japanese fluently.
