  • Jessica Ann Foley

    Kevin is a great attorney. He has a keen sense of the law, and great ability to figure out what is important. He recently left the District Attorney's Office, while he was there I had the opportunity to work with him as opposing counsel, he was always fair, forthright and reasonable under given circumstances.
