I am driven by a desire to help people enhance their lives by keeping them out of conflict, court, and jail. In my criminal and juvenile defense practice, I aggressively represent my clients with compassion. My experience combined with a relentless pursuit of justice ensures my clients’ rights and interests are protected and they receive the best results possible. With estate planning, I offer trusted guidance to ensure parents and families have their financial houses in order and an effective plan in place so that their loved ones are best protected and provided for the way they want in the event the unthinkable happens. In everything I do, I work hard so my clients can rest easy knowing they are being represented by an attorney who cares and is one of the very best.
Criminal & Juvenile Defense: Having worked for many years as a public defender handling countless misdemeanor, felony, probation, parole, AB109, and juvenile cases, I am a seasoned advocate with a track record of proven results. I also have the inside knowledge and experience necessary to navigate the pitfalls of an ever-changing criminal justice system. My clients have a lot at stake and being prosecuted is a scary, stressful, and time-consuming process. I formed Snyder Law with the intent to ease that burden by being the zealous advocate my clients deserve and handling their cases as if they were my own. In doing so, I emphasize open communication and availability, building strong relationships, and working together with my clients each step of the way.
Trusts & Estates: Having a growing family, I know what it means to worry about their safety, future, and what will happen to them if something happens to me. I founded Snyder Law with the mission is to inspire, educate, and empower families to design and create thoughtful and personalized estate plans that will work when their loved ones need it most. Our vision is that your loved ones will know what to do, will be taken care of the way you want, and will be left with a lasting legacy of love if anything happens to you. Our goal is to provide an informative, easy, and personal approach to demystify the estate planning process and make sure you know that you are making the best decisions for your family's future. In the event the unthinkable does happen, I also provide guidance and advocacy in probate and estate administration matters.

Innumerable lawyers stop Kevin in the courtroom hallways with a legal question which he often knows right off the top of his head.
