Michael I. Kean and Bruce E. Loren
Dec 8, 2023

Loren & Kean Law is proud and excited to announce that Allen Heffner and Kyle Ohlenschlaeger have become Partners and Frank Sardinha has become Of Counsel.  Allen, Kyle and Frank are integral members of our firm who have been instrumental in the growth of the firm over the last 8½ years, and its continued and growing reputation as a high-end litigation and construction boutique dedicated to exemplary representation of our clients.

Allen has been with the firm for more than eight years, and has developed a widely varied practice.  Allen’s experience and expertise includes litigation of complex business disputes, commercial landlord-tenant disputes and secured lending and factoring disputes. Using this business and litigation knowledge, Allen has also become a skilled transactional attorney, representing clients in various purchase and sale agreements, mergers and acquisitions, commercial and residential lease agreements, and other corporate transactional matters.

Allen was born and raised in South Florida and resides in Boca Raton with his wife and two children. He graduated with honors from the University of Florida and from the University of Miami School of Law in 2010. Outside of the office, Allen enjoys trying to break 80 on the golf course and convincing himself that next year is the Gator football team’s year.

Kyle joined the firm over seven years ago and has concentrated his practice on construction law, while also maintaining a broader complex litigation practice. Kyle is a Board Certified Expert in construction law, recognized by the Florida Bar for his special knowledge, skills and proficiency, as well as his reputation for professionalism, in this area of the law. Kyle has also been selected as a “Rising Star” in Construction law by Super Lawyers every year since 2019. Kyle takes a practical approach to representation for his clients resulting in efficient handling of matters, and favorable results.

Kyle resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and son. Kyle graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Finance, and with honors from the University of Miami School of Law in 2014. Kyle is an avid boater and a Penn State alum and football fanatic, but spends the majority of his time outside the office involved in his son’s travel baseball team.

Frank joined the firm in 2021, and represents prominent and successful businesses and individual clients in complex, high-stakes civil litigation. Frank came to the firm from one of the country’s most prominent and high-profile boutique litigation firms, and since joining Loren & Kean Law two years ago, Frank has proven himself to be an essential member, providing the firm’s clients with white-glove service. He has handled some of the firm’s most contentious and complex disputes, and has achieved numerous favorable results. Frank has been named a Florida Trend magazine “Up and Comer,” Super Lawyers “Rising Star,” and Best Lawyers “One to Watch” for the past several years.

Frank was born, raised, and currently lives in Palm Beach County. He graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Finance, and with honors from the University of Miami School of Law in 2014. When he is not working at providing top-notch service to his clients, he enjoys boating, golfing, and fishing. Frank is also very active in the community, serving as a volunteer and Board Member of Florida American Legion Boys State and the Charles C. Papy, Jr. Moot Court Board at his alma mater. Along with his fellow Gator-alum Allen, he is ever hopeful for the return to prominence of the Gator football team.

Loren & Kean Law is based in Palm Beach Gardens and Fort Lauderdale. For over 25 years, the firm has taken pride in providing efficient business-like solutions and personal responsive service to our clients.
