The Kentucky Court Trial Review praised Mr. Kinnard's work in the legal community in a post on social media:
"Randall Kinnard, a Nashville lawyer, had quite a year. He had three really significant verdicts. This guy is good.
- January - Plaintiff told she didn't have breast cancer. She did. Led to 11 week treatment delay. $1.75 million in Murfreesboro
- March - He represented Erin Andrews in her case against Marriott regarding the peephole incident. $55,000,000. Nashville.
- October - Vanderbilt lost a biopsy sample. Plaintiff doesn't (and can't know) if she has cancer. $2,000,000 in Nashville. It was all emotional distress.
If I needed a lawyer in a personal injury case in Tennessee, Kinnard (pictured) would be on my short list. He's like Tyler Thompson. Only from a little further down south."
