Kent is a litigation attorney, whose practice focuses primarily on the defense of employers and insurance carriers in admiralty and maritime litigation. In his practice, Kent passionately represents his clients with energy and zeal, and is focused on resolving matters in their best interests.
Prior to joining MMK, Kent represented individual and institutional investors in federal securities class action litigation at a law firm in downtown New Orleans, Louisiana. He also previously served as a Rule XX Litigation Intern at the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office, where he argued motions hearings, oral arguments, and misdemeanor trials.
Kent graduated from Loyola University New Orleans School of Law in 2018. During law school, he was a member of the Maritime Law Society and Maritime Law Journal, where his paper on the boundary dispute between Greece and Turkey was selected for publication. In-between law school semesters, Kent clerked at a firm that handled Longshore Act, Defense Base Act, and Jones Act claims.
Before attending law school, Kent graduated from the University of Oklahoma and grew up in Dallas, Texas.
Kent also has a genuine love for New Orleans food and culture. He enjoys attending Pelicans and Saints games (but still maintains an allegiance to the Dallas Cowboys). In his spare time, Kent attempts to string a decent round of golf together, but rarely succeeds. Nevertheless, he enjoys playing because it allows him time to spend with his friends.
