Kena S. Hollingsworth

Founding Partner

Kena Hollingsworth

Kena Hollingsworth is a founding partner of the awarded, full-service family law firm Hollingsworth & Zivitz. Devoting her legal practice 100% to family law and divorce, she handles all types of family law cases, including divorce and legal separation, child custody and visitation, child support and post-secondary education expense orders, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, paternity, military divorce, CHINS (children in need of services), and family law appeals, to name a few.

What Makes Her Uniquely Qualified?

Kena is also dedicated and qualified to guide clients through alternative dispute resolution for divorce, custody, and other family law matters, as she is a registered family law mediator and a trained collaborative divorce lawyer. A child of divorce herself, Kena provides understanding, compassionate counsel to all her clients, especially when children are involved, and aims to achieve favorable results whether their interests are best served through collaborative divorce, mediation, or litigation.

Beyond the Law Office

Recognized for her insights and proven experience, Kena is often called upon as a speaker and writer to discuss family law issues in seminars, as well as local television and radio programs. She has also been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers® for her family law practice by Indianapolis Monthly and Law & Politics Magazine, selected as one of Indianapolis' Forty Under 40, Indy's Best & Brightest by Indianapolis Business Journal, and a finalist for the Young Professional of the Year Award by the Young Professionals of Central Indiana. Kena also serves the Central Indiana community through more than her family law practice, serving as a director of non-profit boards and volunteering for several organizations.

A dedicated sports fan, Kena holds season tickets to the Colts and Pacers, and enjoys tennis, golf, and boxing. In her free time, she travels, enjoys photography, and spending time with family and friends.
