Mr. Fard negotiated with my former landlord to get out of my dangerous house and to break my lease. My house had a mold issue and my landlord refused to deal with it. Mr. Fard worked with this very difficult individual, got me my full deposit and compensation for my health issues without having to go to mediation or court. Mr. Fard explained my options, fulfilled my expectations, negotiated on my behalf and did all of this in a very timely manner. He is a great asset, I would recommend his services to anyone.
Recently, I had Kevin Fard represent me in a tenant/landlord matter, and we reached an agreeable settlement without a mediator and (even bigger plus) with minimal interaction between parties. Once I gave him all the information he needed, Kevin took care of basically everything, keeping me informed daily of progress, and even taking the time to contact me when nothing had changed. Kevin was always helpful, available, and attentive to detail. When there were issues that I did not understand, he took the time to explain every decision I needed to make when moving forward and every possible result that could arise from these decisions. He even took a call from me over the weekend and patiently told me nothing had changed - I later found out he was on vacation, though I never once felt that I was putting him out through his tone.
When certain points of the case fell outside of Kevin's legal expertise, he called a real estate attorney on my behalf to discuss further possibilities if I were to choose to move forward with legal actions.
Because Kevin was such an efficient and effective attorney, we reached a settlement within two weeks, and I was reimbursed for damages on top of receiving my deposit in full - had I not had Kevin to represent me, I would have more than likely ended up owing money to someone who had cost me an absurd amount of time and money due to slumlord-like housing conditions.
I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for quality, professional, attentive legal services.
I made a huge mistake and was charged with driving on a suspended license. Kevin helped me get my case dismissed and my license back. Best attorney I've had.
I was wrongfully charged with seven serious counts and had no idea what to do. Kevin worked hard on my case and got every single one of those charges dismissed and negotiated an incredible deal with no jail time. Kevin then represented me in my restitution hearing and saved me from a potential payment of over a thousand dollars. I highly recommend his services.
I hired Mr. Fard to handle two rather difficult DUI related issues, and found him to be extremely competent, knowledgeable and thorough in all of our dealings. He went above and beyond my expectations both in pre-court research, as well as arguing the cases before the judges.
Not only that, but even after resolution of the matters he was hired for, he continued to find resources and make calls to assist me in post-court matters related to my cases.
He did not over-promise, or inflate any possible outcomes. He was prompt, professional and available not only to myself but to those who needed updates and information.
I would gladly recommend Mr. Fard to anyone in need of an attorney.
Kevin A. Fard is an exceptional lawyer, I needed to hire and retain a lawyer to defend me on the court of law, and hiring Mr. Fard was the best choice I made, he was very sucessful on defending me. He is trust worthy, hard working, very knowledgeable of the laws and court proceeding. His entire firm tries as hard as the can to keep the cost down. I would recommend Mr. Fard to anyone who needs legal help, he makes stressful time easy to deal with.

Embarrassingly, I ran afoul of the law during an intoxicated night while in LA, and was charged with a urination in public ticket (with a misdemeanor charge). Being based in San Francisco, I was incredulous at the potential ramifications of an admittedly stupid decision to [allegedly] pee behind a tree -court appearances, professional implications, criminal record- and needed an LA-based lawyer to handle my case. Kevin's prices were reasonable, his knowledge of the law was considerable, and he has a sense of humor to boot. Most importantly, though, he delivered. Final result was a minor infraction; specific ticket was 'nuisance in public,' akin to a speeding ticket. I remain indebted to his services and would highly recommend.
Kevin did an amazing job with my DUI case and got me a great deal with the court that really saved me a lot of money and stress. He is very professional and knows exactly what he is doing and how to do it. I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone.
Mr. Fard did an excellent job reducing the penalties on my DUI conviction to a more manageable level. My BAC was well above .08, so this was the best I could hope for, and Kevin delivered.
