Kevin Lance Cadora

About me

Attorney Cadora represents all types of clients with matters involving family disputes. Attorney Cadora personally handles every stage of a client's matter including, but not limited to transactional work, pre litigation demands, filing suit, mediations/arbitrations, settlement negotiations, readiness and evidentiary hearings, law and motion hearings, orders to show cause and trials.


The attorney/client relationship must be founded on trust, understanding and zeal because only together can the client's rights be fully vindicated. The attorney's job is to assist the client's transition from a place of enormous stress and uncertainty to a place of relative harmony and relief. Our only goal is to provide high quality, competent and aggressive legal representation to clients who require help during troubled times.


Clients want results and our goal is to achieve those results through dedication, hard work and total commitment to professional excellence. 


We understand the anxiety and uncertainty that is often caused by those life shattering events. By closely communicating with each person who entrusts such important matters to us, we inspire confidence and assurance in every client’s cause.


While we respect the positions taken by our adversaries and pride ourselves in our professionalism, we are relentless in our pursuit of the truth and obtaining the best possible result as each case allows. Aggressive yet reasonable is our motto, which has served our clients well.

  • Harris Justin Brumer

    Kevin is a very fine Family Law attorney. On one case I recently had, Kevin was appointed as the Settlement Conference Judge. His role was to help the parties reach a final agreement and to avoid the time and expense of a trial. I found Kevin to be extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter and very kind and patient with my client. Kevin appears to have a knack for cutting to the heart of the matter and eliminating the superfluous issues. He is a born mediator and I was very impressed with his work. He has my highest endorsement. Truly top notch.
