A. Kenra Parris-Whittaker

A seasoned young litigator, Kenra believes that justice prevails. She also believes that justice is on her side–regardless of superficial facts, and even of prior governmental rulings. This gives rise to tremendous confidence—short of an actual guarantee.

.

The Nassau-born, Canadian-educated litigator attributes her success to thinking a few steps ahead of her opponent. She has a strong sense of moral values—and operates nimbly on surprisingly little sleep.

The daughter of Bahamas-real estate guru Arthur Parris, Kenra always knew she would be an attorney. She enrolled in law school (University of Buckingham, 2001, and later Inns of Court School of Law, 2004), then joined Callenders & Co., where she became a senior associate litigating commercial, probate and maritime cases

Now, as an admiralty, maritime, personal injury and commercial litigator, Kenra frequently represents crew members, vessel repair shops, shipyard owners, injured plaintiffs, and others wronged without recourse. She has obtained millions on her clients’ behalf—through judgment or settlement. She also represents clients who are seeking or defending a judicial review (in the Supreme Court) on governmental rulings such as a Port Authority license granted or denied. She has been uncannily successful in all these endeavors.

Kenra has a thriving probate practice as well. As an attorney for executors and executrices, she can often halve the waiting time for hearings, particularly for large estates.
