I found myself in a very difficult situation that I had no knowledge of and had no idea what to do and immediately turned to AVVO after having success with finding a bankruptcy attorney here. It was a very frightening time for myself and my family and I needed help as soon as possible. After looking at some reviews I came across the review for Attorney Smith and was immediately struck by all his reviews mentioning how helpful he was and that he was the person to go to if you were in trouble.
I reached out to Attorney Smith who got back to me right away and reassured me that everything was going to be okay and walked me through each step of the process. He made a difficult situation easier by being so compassionate and really listening to me, at that point I knew everything would work out .
I would highly recommend Attorney Smith to any one who is looking for an excellent, compassionate, hardworking attorney who will fight hard for you and has your best interests at heart.

Kevin used his knowledge of the DMV process to help save my license from a 6 month suspension: first by showing up for a hearing that the state had neglected to inform me of until their letter arrived on the day of the hearing, then by winning the case. He is a talented young lawyer with a big career ahead of him. Get him while he's still affordable.
