About me

Following one year as a Rhode Island Superior Court Law Clerk, I spent six years as a state criminal prosecutor in the Rhode Island Department of Attorney General prosecuting dozens of capital cases and high profile homicides. I later joined the Newport, Rhode Island law firm of Houlihan, Managhan & Kyle, Ltd. After working for HM&K for several years, In 2011 I opened my own practice - Kevin Hagan Attorney At Law - located at 105 Memorial Blvd West, Newport, RI 02840.

Since 2002, I have successfully handled all kinds of criminal cases in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. and I have achieved acquittals at trial and favorable resolutions for my clients at both the trial and investigative stages of my cases. I have defended clients charged with all forms of capital offenses, major felonies and misdemeanors. As a prosecutor, I prosecuted hundreds of major crimes including child abuse, homicide, robbery and white collar crime.

During my years as a Rhode Island state prosecutor, I worked at all levels of the criminal justice system. I established lasting relationships with fellow members of the bar and law enforcement colleagues alike.

As a private practitioner, I now litigate DUI cases, Criminal Defense cases, Family Law cases, Personal Injury cases, Domestic Violence cases, Zoning cases, Traffic cases, and Civil cases of every kind.

I grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts. my father was a college president and my late grandfather was the administrator of probation and parole in Rhode Island. They always put a high priority on helping people, and I try to follow in that tradition as a lawyer.  I am member of the Rhode Island and Massachusetts State bars. I also am a member of the bar for the Rhode Island Federal District Court.
