WHO WE SERVE
Here at Seal & Kennedy, we handle estate and business planning for clients with both large and small estates. While many of our clients are professionals and business persons, some of whose estates are in excess of 20 million dollars, our attorneys also have extensive experience helping ranchers and farmers in rural communities deal with the unique estate planning and business issues that they face. No matter how big or small your estate or legal issues may be, Seal & Kennedy is equipped to handle your needs.
Seal & Kennedy was founded in 1980 by Gregory L. Seal & Jerry R. Kennedy. Greg and Jerry attended law school together at the University of Utah. After spending a number of years working with different law firms, gaining valuable legal experience, Greg and Jerry decided to form their own law firm. Initially, Greg and Jerry saw a need in the then relatively new area of estate planning, to provide estate planning services to ranchers and farmers in rural areas. Through an association with the Utah Cattlemen’s Association, they spent a number of years traveling throughout the State, servicing the needs of those involved in agribusiness.
Since those early years, Jerry and Greg’s practice has expanded to include complex estate and tax planning of many multi million dollar estates for professionals and business persons, as well as handling many other transactional legal matters for a very wide range of clients residing in several states. While their practice has expanded greatly over the years, Jerry and Greg have not lost touch with the reasons they first opened their practice, and they still take immense pride in assisting ranchers and farmers with their unique estate planning and business needs.
In the fall of 2005 Jerry's son, Kelly Kennedy, joined the firm. Kelly immediately began working with his father and Greg, gaining experience and learning their practice. Since then, Kelly has prepared many estate plans, and business planning documents, as well as handled a broad range of other legal matters. Since joining Seal & Kennedy, Kelly has become licensed to practice law in Utah, Wyoming, and Washington. In December of 2017, after a long and distinguished career in the legal profession, and after serving thousands of client's, Jerry retired from the practice of law, turning his practice over to his son Kelly.
