Attorney Profile

Frank Kerney is an attorney at Morgan & Morgan, where he focuses his practice exclusively on consumer protection matters. Located in the firm's office in Tampa, Florida, he provides representation to people throughout the state as well as in other parts of the country. Admitted to practice in Florida since 2011, Mr. Kerney is also admitted to practice in Tennessee as well as before several federal trial courts, including the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, and the U.S. District Courts for the Middle and Western Districts of Tennessee.

A significant portion of Mr. Kerney's practice involves assisting people who have been the victims of harassment from debt collection agencies and other creditors. Many of his cases have proceeded under federal laws that have been enacted to curb these types of violations, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Mr. Kerney's experience has also encompassed actions dealing with violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. During his career, he has been able to obtain significant compensation for his clients, including a $459,000 arbitration award on behalf of a Tennessee woman who received more than 300 robocalls from a Texas-based retailer and a $215,000 jury award against the same defendant. These and other successes have earned Mr. Kerney the high regard of his fellow attorneys, including a "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo.

Mr. Kerney majored in political science at the University of South Florida and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. He then obtained his legal education at Stetson University College of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2010. Prior to joining Morgan & Morgan PA in 2010, Mr. Kerney handled family law matters for another Tampa firm.
