About Me

As a graduate of Vanderbilt University Law School, Kevin possesses a very thorough knowledge of the law. Kevin’s experience includes representing prominent business clients at a prestigious international law firm.


 


In addition to his business law experience, Kevin has litigated numerous criminal misdemeanor and felony cases, including DUI, drugs, domestic violence and traffic cases. As a trial lawyer, Kevin has successfully attained “Not Guilty” jury verdicts and reductions to lesser charges in front of some of the toughest judges in Georgia.

Kevin is a native of Louisville, Kentucky. While in law school, he was a member of the Moot Court Board Managing Counsel and the Mock Trial Board. Kevin’s talents as a litigator in training earned him a trip to the finals of the Vanderbilt Mock Trial Competition and the opportunity to represent Vanderbilt University at the regional intercollegiate mock trial competition. Prior to law school, Kevin earned a Bachelor’s degree with honors in Political Science and Youth & Family Ministry from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. Kevin is also an Eagle Scout.

  • Michael S. LaScala

    Kevin is an excellent young lawyer. He tackles each case with enthusiasm and zeal. In the world of criminal defense it is all about the results. The way to get the best results is to simply work incredibly hard. Kevin understands this key concept and will not be outworked or out hustled by anyone - he refuses to lose. You are in very, very good hands if Kevin is your lawyer. I highly recommend him.
