Rod Kernan was born in Rockledge, Florida in 1963. His parents, Roger, a Florida native, and Shirley, originally from Virginia, raised him in Merritt Island during the "Space Race." Roger worked for many aerospace companies like Convair, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, Rockwell, Lockheed, and Lockheed Martin, working on many projects such as Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle missions.

Rod is an avid motorcycle and car enthusiast. While growing up, Rod's father put a wrench in his hand early on and he was on his way to rebuilding cars and motorcycles. Starting at the age of 13 on weekends and part-time and at 16 during summers, Rod worked for his uncle James, who had a well-drilling business and construction company.

Rod graduated from Merritt Island High School where he was 1st Chair Trumpet in the 200 plus member band. More than an awesome experience with great friends, he learned teamwork and discipline, at an early age. After graduation, Rod attended Brevard Community College in pursuit of an engineering degree, while working full time.

Rod was hired on with Lockheed in July of 1988 as a Space Shuttle Technician, working on tasks throughout the Orbiter such as satellite installation, fuel cell installation and maintenance, structures repair, landing gear and internal configurations.

During the early 90's Rod decided to finish his Bachelor's Degree, so he enrolled at Barry University to work on a degree in business while working full time. While working the 2nd shift, Lockheed generously allowed him to leave work during the middle of the shift and return to complete his shift after classes. He often worked until 2:00 am. This went on for a couple of years until Rod graduated from Barry University in 1994. In 1995 Rod decided to attend law school, and while at Touro Law Center, Rod was a Notes and Comment's Editor on the Touro Law Review where he is a Contributor, New York State Constitutional Decisions: 1997 Compilation,14 Touro L. Rev. 895, 1197, 1252 (1998). During his last term in 1998, Rod interned for the Honorable Denis Hurley, United States District Court, Eastern District of New York doing research and drafting proposed opinions.

Upon graduation from law school, Rod moved back to Florida and took on some part-time legal employment while preparing for the Florida Bar Exam. He was fortunate to obtain employment with the Brevard County State Attorney's Office in 1999 as a Certified Legal Intern while awaiting the required Florida Ethics Exam so he could be sworn in. On October 4, 1999, Rod was sworn into the Florida Bar and began his legal career. Soon after that, he started with the Ninth Circuit Public Defender's Office in Osceola County. After leaving the Public Defender's Office, Rod worked at two Orlando law firms practicing in various criminal and civil areas including, personal injury, personal injury protection litigation, contract, family, immigration, property, probate, collections, and administrative issues.

Rod is the proud father of three daughters. His oldest daughter graduated from the University of Central Florida, and the younger two graduated from the University of Florida. Rod opened his solo law practice in 2002, handling mostly criminal, family and traffic, personal injury pre-suit, with the occasional small claims and eviction cases. In 2010, Rod created Kernan & Austin, LLC which served Brevard County handling personal injury pre-suit, criminal, traffic, and family matters.

Rod is thrilled to be a part of the Morgan & Morgan team and begin serving Brevard County with his array of legal experience and outstanding dedication to his client's concerns and legal issues.
