Kendall Johnson

Experienced. Kendall Johnson has handled complicated and hotly contested family law cases for the past 20 years. This experience is valuable to his clients because he can draw on his knowledge base and get right to work on your specific needs. This can save time and money, and help assure you that important details are not overlooked which could jeopardize your case.

Tough when toughness is needed. In some cases, a dominate spouse tries to bully the other into yielding his or her legal rights. Or perhaps your spouse wound up with an inexperienced attorney who thinks bluster can make up for a lack of experience in family law. Such cases require a forceful approach, making the bully wishing they had stuck to the high road.

No “one size fits all” philosophy. When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. You need to find an attorney who has a complete toolbox. Kendall has invested in extensive training enabling him to assess your case and advise you about a full range of ways you can approach your case based on your unique situation.

There are times when the wise approach is to dial down the intensity. When the other spouse may be willing to seek common ground in some areas, especially when children are involved, you don’t want an attorney who is a bull in a china shop, stirring up animosity which will create needless stress, and a dark cloud which may linger for a lifetime. Many times Kendall has provided the cool head which de-escalated a case which could have easily spiraled out of control.

Trained collaborator. When both parties are willing to work together to come up with as peaceable solution as possible, collaboration can be a great option. By nature, collaboration tends to be more cost-effective. This is because the atmosphere is less litigious with you and your spouse more involved in pursuing an agreement which satisfies both of you.  Kendal is a board member of Oklahoma Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Educated. Kendall earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1993, after earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Business from Oral Roberts University. He joined Savage O'Donnell as a partner in 2006.

Connected. Actively engaged in the Tulsa community, Kendall has served on several committees within the Tulsa County Bar Association. He serves on the User Advisory Board of the River Parks Authority. As an avid cyclist, he serves on the leadership team of the Tulsa Wheelmen Race Team.  Kendall's efforts help the team earn Club of the Year by USACycling in 2015.  If that weren't enough, drawing from a musical past, Kendall directs the Oral Roberts University basketball pep band during basketball season.

Family man. Kendall has been married for 26 years and has two children. Their daughter is newly married and volunteers at the University of Tulsa with international students and their son is a Junior mechanical engineering major at Oral Roberts University. Kendall and his wife attend Asbury United Methodist Church where they are very active in small-group and discipleship leadership and volunteer as mentors for engaged couples.
