Joe Kennett concentrates his legal practice on resolving disputes for small to medium-sized businesses. He has vast courtroom experience managing cases from inception to completion, and has taken nearly 150 trials to verdict. His business litigation practice focuses on complex litigation involving business fraud, breach of contract and other business disputes.

Joe grew up in Palm Harbor, Florida, eventually receiving his undergraduate degree in public relations from Florida State University and his law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law. In law school, he was a member of both the top nationally ranked Moot Court and Mock Trial teams. He was champion of the Spohrer-Dodd Trial Advocacy Scholarship Competition, and received the Book Award for highest grade in trial advocacy. While at Florida Coastal, Joe worked over 900 hours as an intern in a wide variety of legal fields including business litigation, labor, and employment law.

After law school, Joe worked for several years as an Assistant State Attorney in Tampa, eventually prosecuting hundreds of felony cases. He prepared and directed law enforcement, expert, and lay witnesses for testimony in over 150 jury and non-jury trials, ranging from misdemeanors to life felonies, only losing one jury trial during his time at the office. Prior to joining Brick Business Law, Joe worked for several years with an AV-rated Tampa area business law firm, where he focused his practice exclusively on the litigation and resolution of business-related disputes.
