“Kenny” Sumner is a transactional and litigation law attorney with years of experience in Business Litigation, Advising Startup Businesses, Wills, Trusts, Probate, Estate Law, Estate Litigation, Trust Litigation, Contested Guardianships, and a range of other specialties. Kenny graduated From the University of Houston Law Center in 2006. He began his career working for a large Houston Law Firm. Though this firm provided him with a wealth of experience and a good foundation, the large company size and focus didn’t fit Kenny’s career mission to make a real difference in the lives of individuals. He partnered with Paul Romano to open the Sugar Land law practice Romano & Sumner, LLC in 2013.
I was born in Littleton, Colorado, but didn’t stay there long. My father was an engineer who worked for a large oil company, and when I was six we were transferred overseas to England. We moved around quite a bit, but spent the majority of time in London. Like most kids, I wasn’t able to recognize at the time how fantastic an opportunity this was and how it shaped the way I view the world. I attended both American schools (I am an Alumni of the American School in London or “ASL”) as well as English grammar schools (where we wore uniforms and where I learned to write with a fountain pen and tie a tie). Being exposed to two very different school systems honed my ability to approach problems in a variety of ways—a skill that has served me well.
Our family moved back to the United States—to Sugar Land, Texas—where I attended Clements High School. I went on to the University of Houston where I completed my undergraduate in Information Technology and the Entrepreneurship Program. It was here that I developed my passion for small business. I later began Law School at South Texas College of Law and then transferred to the University of Houston Law Center, where I served on the Houston Journal of Health Law and Policy. I clerked at several law firms in Houston and interned for the Texas Supreme Court.
After Law School, I started at a large Houston Law Firm, before striking out on my own. In April of 2013 I partnered with Paul Romano to form the Sugar Land law firm of Romano & Sumner, PLLC. My practice focuses on Litigation, advising startup Businesses, and issues involving the Texas Estate Codes such as Wills, Trusts, Probate and Guardianships. I have met the certification to be able to bring and defend Guardianship proceedings in the State of Texas, and am also routinely appointed by Courts to serve as an Attorney Ad Litem and/or Guardian Ad Litem to protect the interests of a proposed ward. My wife, Cynthia, and I have two children. I am a volunteer for Fort Bend Lawyers Care, a non-profit organization that provides legal services to indigent parties in Fort Bend County, and I am also a Member of Fort Bend CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), an organization that assigns members as Guardian Ad Litems for children taken into the State of Texas Custody by Child Protective Services. I live locally and believe in supporting our community.
It is my hope that you have been able to find out more about me which in turn provides a level of comfort and confidence should you honor me with the ability to represent you.
