Details

Kevin L. Lenson joined Elk & Elk Co., Ltd. in January 2010 and focuses his practice on auto accidents, workplace intentional torts and premises liability.

He passed the bar in 1996 and has worked for two plaintiffs' law firms in Northeast Ohio since. He earned his undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1992 and went on to earn his law degree from the University of Toledo in 1996.

Lenson's professional memberships include the Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers and the Ohio State Bar Association. He's married, has a daughter and two sons and resides in Solon.

Four words describe Lenson's greatest strength, he said: "I'm a people person."

"That's what I really enjoy the most about being a plaintiffs' lawyer," he said. "I really enjoy meeting and working with people, especially people I can help; people who have gone through struggles, unfortunate circumstances."

He said he takes "great care" with each and every client and it's his satisfaction in helping them see their way to a fair resolution that makes him most satisfied with his work.

"I think one of my greatest strengths is my ability to explain to people how the law works and how it applies to their specific situations," Lenson said. "I always deal with my clients on equal terms. If there's something they don't quite understand we work through it until they do."

Lenson said any effective client-lawyer relationship is built on a solid foundation of good communication.

"That's the only way to proceed. I mean, the most important aspect of doing this type of work is good, solid client communication."

He said aside from making sure his clients know the status of their cases, he likes to check up on their progress, health-wise, make sure their families are weathering the legal concerns in the wake of an unfortunate incident, and reassure them everything is going to be OK.

"That's how we level the playing field," he said. "Sometimes that's all it takes - a little time to listen, to explain about something. And, at the end of the day, that's what makes me feel like I've actually helped someone - that look of relief, understanding - and knowing I've helped someone through a very difficult time."

He said joining Elk & Elk Co., Ltd. and being able to use the firm's vast resources will only help him get that feeling more and more.

"Working with firm the size of Elk & Elk Co., Ltd. gives me an opportunity to handle a variety of cases all over the country and, as a result, to be able to help the most people."
