Attorneys > Kenneth H. Prochnow Born in Wisconsin, Kenneth Prochnow was educated at Columbia College and the New York University School of Law. At NYU, he served as the editor-in-chief of the Law Review. After clerking for Judge Leonard Garth (U.S. Court of Appeals, Third Circuit), Mr. Prochnow practiced briefly in New York as an associate with a Wall Street firm before returning to the Midwest. Mr. Prochnow's litigation practice as an associate and partner in Minnesota featured exposure to a broad variety of civil litigation, involving issues and cases from substantial securities class action work to commercial and real estate cases. His practice covered jury trials, arbitrations and appeals. Mr. Prochnow's Minnesota experience was highlighted by his completion of intensive trial lawyer training at a National Institute for Trial Advocacy National Session in Boulder, Colorado. In 1984, Mr. Prochnow moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. His practice as a Palo Alto trial attorney has included commercial disputes, real estate matters, fraud and investment cases, investment and mutual fund cases, broker-dealer and broker-customer litigation and arbitration, bankruptcy cases, and intellectual property and computer law litigation. In recent years, Mr. Prochnow has increasingly concentrated his practice in probate litigation. Kenneth Prochnow continues to practice as a trial lawyer in commercial litigation matters, breach of contract cases, disputes including allegations of fraud or breach of fiduciary duty, and real estate cases. He has been A-V rated by Martindale Hubbell for more than 20 years.
