While my law firm provides legal services in a variety of matters, my particular focus is on divorce and family law. With each case my goal is to be accessible and empathetic, and to bring a thoughtful and conciliatory spirit to my client's situation in an effort to reach the most beneficial outcome with the understanding that in some instances aggressive representation may be necessary as I work directly with each of my clients to strategize and achieve their particular objectives.

Following graduation from law school, I began practicing family law at a prominent firm in Boston where I represented clients in disputes involving divorce, child custody, visitation, removal, alimony, child support, property division, modification, contempt, and abuse prevention. Previously, while in law school, I was a judicial intern to the Associate Justices of the Middlesex County Probate and Family Court in Cambridge, Massachusetts where I gained invaluable insight in resolving contested matters from the court's perspective.

My litigation practice encompasses communities in Suffolk, Middlesex, Norfolk, Bristol, Plymouth, and Worcester counties. In addition, I am a certified divorce and family law mediator.

Great Attorney
Kevin is a truly effective advocate and advisor. I am forever thankful to him for his hard work and the result he achieved for me. It was clear from the beginning that Kevin was focused on my best interests and obtaining the result I wanted. He was always responsive, made me comfortable during each step of the court process, and I confidently recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a great attorney.

Highly Recommended!
It is great to have Kevin as my attorney. The divorce process was already stressful, and the first attorney I hired has caused me more troubles and delays. After being fed up with enough issues, I have browsed various websites to search for different attorney profiles and reviews. I have been glad that I made the right decision to hire Kevin to replace the prior attorney. When I first walked into Kevin's office, I was full of worry and concerns with the burden from my ex and my prior attorney. Kevin was able to calm me down and prepared me for the divorce process. And step after step, the outcome of the case has been much better than I had expected. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone whom needs a divorce attorney in the region.

Amazing Lawyer That Cares
Kevin renewed my faith in attorney's when dealing with a horrible experience with prior counsel during my divorce and custody battle. He not only communicated often, but truly cared about what results I wanted that was best for myself and most importantly, my children. He was instrumental in crafting the best case and truly being caring not only about the compounded issues in my case, but also my personal health as I was battling blow after blow of medical set backs during my case. I have never met a person more trusting and faithfully committed to his clients and would not ever look anywhere else for someone to represent me in a court room.

Smart, trustworthy and caring !
I reached out to Kevin after he was highly recommended By an attorney and a friend. From the beginning, Kevin made himself available knowing that I needed immediate advice and representation. I communicated that I need to make this process the easiest possible because I could not take any more stress and needed to move on to preserve my sanity, he agreed that there is no need to spend thousands when the divorce should be very simple. Kevin is a very caring ,intelligent and professional. I was surprised that his first question was if there was any chance to have counseling before getting into a divorce and that at any time I could tell him if there was something I want to consider. He quickly understood why that was not an option. Kevin spent time trying to get to know me and asked a lot of questions to get a better picture of my situation, I felt confident that if an attorney is going to take the time to profile you ,know your situation and your character that he is not leaving any room for errors or misunderstanding. Kevin also made himself available on weekends, nights to talk or to meet when he understood that it was important. His cell phone was available and he made it clear that I could reach out to him anytime should there be any emergency or motions filed. Kevin is also very reassuring when he feels like you are in emotional distress due to the divorce. Kevin does his best to understand his clients and works very hard juggling many cases and prioritizing when there is a call for it. I called him for an emergency and he was very prompt to respond in a time where I needed a quick advice. I will write an another review when the divorce process is over. I'm confident that Kevin will exceed my expectations.

Good exprience with an attorney
Kevin was extremely instrumental with me obtaining full legal and physical custody of my son. This is not an easy thing to do in this state for fathers. He was there during a kidnapping situation and was invaluable, timely and contributive in getting assistance from the local police department. With a judge the was hesitant on giving a final ruling we were able to include that all visits be supervised before the ruling.

Kevin is a fantastic attorney!
After being divorced for 12 years, I was convinced that the court system is hopelessly limited to adhering to guidelines and worksheets. I have always tried to argue to my previous attorney that the guidelines should not apply to my case. If you don’t think they should apply in your case, you’re probably right and you should discuss your case with Kevin. I was very impressed with Kevin during our first meeting. He listened intently and asked all the right questions to make sure he was getting all the facts straight. He was even better at making sure he understood what I wanted and what I thought I deserved. I hired him on the spot. During negotiations with the opposing counsel, it became clear to me that Kevin knows the lawyer game and how not to play it. Kevin saved me untold lawyer fees by simply refusing to play lawyer games with opposing counsel. If you are facing an aggressive attorney, Kevin will do his best to deflect any issues that are frivolous or are just not aren’t pertinent. In Court, Kevin was absolutely amazing. Kevin knows what Judges respond to. Kevin was very careful and methodical about preparing the Judge to make a decision. He started with stating several specific facts about my case. He then argued that my case was clearly outside the guidelines and proceeded to extensively cite several applicable case law precedents. The judge was impressed and moved. We won! After 12 years of hearing why I can’t do this and can’t do that, I finally found a lawyer that listens and fights for what is right. I couldn’t believe it was as easy as hiring a great lawyer. Thanks Kevin!

Above and Beyond
Attorney Walters met with me at late hours and on weekends to ensure that he and I could confer on my case, a response to my ex-wife's demand for modification to the child support order and our counter-claim for a change in the parenting plan that would give me substantially more time with my children. At all times, he was sympathetic and professional, seeking to know not merely the technical aspects of my situation (i.e., the existing court order, the present parenting plan) but also the background and personal history that afforded the context for all this. In the pre-trial conferences with my ex and her attorney, he maintained a professional demeanor throughout, despite several instances in which the opposing attorney exhibited less-than-gracious behavior. Strategically and tactically, he several times made decisions that had the effect of saving me additional legal fees by folding in certain of our counter-demands into the pre-trial hearing without separate filings on our part. While I could certainly wish that the Guidelines were more realistic, I believe that the outcome of the case was likely all that could be hoped for under the circumstances. At the pre-trial scheduling conference, Attorney Walters responded eloquently and compellingly before the bench to opposing counsel's repeated misstatements or elisions of the law and the facts in the case. (In fact, and somewhat to my amusement, frankly, after we sat down following his passionate oration on my behalf and the judge's indication of what she would consider a fair settlement, two different people in court that day for their own matters independently approached and asked for his business card so that they could contact him later to represent them. I was half-way tempted to ask for a finder's fee. Ha!) Given my ex's character and perpetual sense of grievance, I anticipate that this may become an annual tradition, in which she files a complaint for modification every time my salary bumps up; it is just as well, then, that I can console myself with the knowledge that I already know an extremely skilled advocate who will ably champion my side. (I can also say, without any doubt, that having witnessed from the opposing attorney a wholesale willingness to make untruthful or, at best, technically accurate but deliberately deeply misleading representations to the court, that Attorney Walters did not stoop to any such ploys; in fact, he asked me to indicate on a writing pad if at any time he accidentally misspoke during his address to the bench so that he could correct it before we sat down.) He managed to zealously represent his client's interest while still maintaining an ethical regard for the truth.

Difficult Divorce
Going into my divorce i felt very lost as it was unfamiliar ground to most of us. My first meeting with Kevin was not what i expected, there was more time spent discussing matters that I felt were unrelated, only to realize Kevin was trying to get an understanding of my values and integrity as a person. Kevin took the time to figure out what type of person i was and how handling the case would be best for me. We went into court for the 1st time with only the facts and the truth, leaving all emotions at home. There was no slander or demeaning statement towards anyone, the judge recognized this. Not to say it was a victory as there is no winning in a divorce, my spouse fired her attorney and partitioned to remove the judge as the judgment was not as she expected. We took on the same approach with the second judge and the new attorney going into court 7 months later. My spouses attorneys made discoveries that became 1500 plus pages. We did not make any ill intended comments to make ourselves look better, unnecessary request or unreasonable inquiries totaling less than 75 pages. The outcome was not in the favor of my spouse. Kevin is wise and does not make fools errands, waste time or money, keeps it clean and earns the respect of the courtroom. Over the past 14 month I've realized Kevin's approach is well thought and planned properly for my particular situation, he did not cut and paste to go through the motions. Kevin cares about his clients well being, not only is he my attorney, i consider him to be a friend.

Highly Recommended!
Kevin has been such an amazing asset to me for the past few years I have known him. He has been so helpful to me throughout the process of my divorce. I can't praise him enough. He is never unprepared, always devotes enough attention to my case, and gives me plenty of his time. I wholeheartedly appreciate everything he has done for me and I highly recommend him to anyone who is going through a critical moment in their life and is looking for guidance.

NICE GUY WITH GOOD INFORMATION
I called Kevin on a confidential matter. He answered the phone, made me feel comfortable, and answered all of my questions in a forthright manner without talking down to me. Give him a call and I trust he can help you too.

Excellent Legal Representation
Attorney Walters provided me excellent legal representation during my divorce and subsequent contempt case. Kevin was very knowledgeable, and he was always responsive and kept me informed. From the beginning Kevin clearly explained to me what to expect from the judge and he helped me achieve each of my goals. I defintely recommend Kevin as an excellent attorney.

I Highly Recommend Attorney Walters

Outstanding result
Attorney Walters handled my divorce two years ago. I would not be where I am today without him. Kevin was professional as we went up against an attorney who thought he could intimidate him. Kevin's calm, cool manner kept things in check, and his smart handling of my case rewarded me with joint custody, my home, and no child support or alimony for my ex. To top it off, I am a male residing in Massachusetts. He didn't allow my ex to play the system, and brought the injustice done to me in front of the court within 3 days. I was in the house with my 2 daughters immediately after, and have been there providing for their needs ever since. Kevin is not only my attorney, but will always be one of the most influential people I have met in life. If you have been treated injustly by "the system" Kevin is the attorney for you.
