About Us

About The Firm

Michael J. McKenna founded the firm, just two years after his admission to the New Jersey and Pennsylvania bars in 1981. He had in mind a different approach to practicing law- one that emphasized the quality of work and the value of relationships as keys to a successful practice.

Forty years later, the firm is a highly regarded advocate of personal injury clients. Michael C. McKenna joined the firm while still in law school, and later as an associate upon admission to the bar in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in 2013. Father and son are recognized by the defense bar and insurance companies as a fearsome one two punch as champions on behalf of their clients.

A sense of family is an important part of the McKenna Law model. We are in fact a family, with a staff who think and act as a family, and together we come to think of our clients as part of our extended family who come to us in times of need.

Client Reviews

From our first meeting with Mike we felt at ease. He was friendly caring and understanding. Mike did not at any time make us feel he couldn't help us. I was in a lot of pain and had broken fingers scrapes and bruises Mike and his staff were genuinely concerned with my wellbeing and doing everything they could to help us. Mike went above and beyond for us he got things from the accident site that we didn't even think about. If you or someone you care about needs any help McKenna Law is the place to be they will do everything. I'm sure, to help you.

A. Tartaglia

I recently was represented by Mr. McKenna in an auto liability suit. He is an aggressive and experienced advocate for his clients. His staff is more than knowledgeable and were always available to assist me. The opposing insurance carrier was a major company with many resources. That fact did not in anyway intimidate the firm of McKenna Law. Mr. Mckenna was relentless with his demands and acquired an award 4x more than arbitration recommended. I highly recommend this firm and would use them again if needed.

John K

The McKenna family has been a family lawyer for 20 plus years, from traffic violations to personal injury. They are always the first call I make and always my first recommendation to family and friends in need of legal representation.
