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.
