About me

Upon graduation from law school Kevin took a position as an Assistant Public Defender for Columbia County.  During his two years in the public defender's office Kevin gained valuable experience in all types of family court matters including custody, abuse/neglect and support.  In 2000 Kevin accepted a position with the Albany law firm Roland, Koblenz & Petroccione, LLP where he gained additional civil litigation, real estate and surrogates court experience.  In 2005 Kevin, Emilio Petroccione and Carl Ferrintino formed Colwell, Ferrentino and Petroccione, LLP.  In 2008 Mr. Ferrentino left the firm for public service and Mary Colwell joined the firm.  Kevin's practice focuses on child custody and matrimonial issues.
