Kendra’s Legal Experience
Kendra McCardle’s legal experience has prepared her for the position of family court judge.
Kendra began her legal career defending the rights of indigent litigants throughout Northern Kentucky as a public advocate for the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy. This role provided Kendra with valuable experience in the courtroom.
Building on this experience, Kendra formed Morgan & McCardle, PLLC, where she focused her practice on family and criminal law. Kendra’s representation of children and families has been the highlight of her career.
Every child and family that Kendra has represented holds a special place in her heart. Kendra’s representation of children as a guardian ad litem and friend of the court has been the highlight of her career.
The legal representation of children in the community is a very personal matter for Kendra. As a mother, she understands the need for children to have a safe environment that allows them to thrive. That is why she has fought to protect their best interest in the courtroom as a litigator.
Kendra’s work with children in the community has now led to her candidacy for family court judge. It is her hope that she will be able to continue impacting the lives of children and families throughout Boone and Gallatin counties.
Kendra lives in Hebron with her husband of 14 years, Malcolm, and their five year old son Aidan. Kendra attended the University of Kentucky, where she received two Bachelor of Arts degrees. She received her Juris Doctorate from Salmon P. Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University in May of 2008.
