Kevin O'Brien is an adept attorney with emotional intelligence. He has helped me get my legal questions answered since 1999.
If I could summarize my experience with Kevin O'Brien and his law practice in a few words, it would be:
It's not that practice that makes perfect. Kevin L. O'Brien's law practice gets it right every time.
I am a client because I want Kevin O'Brien on my team.

As a loving father to my two young daughters I was scared of losing my girls when I filed for divorce from my wife and she fought for full custody. My ex-wife destroyed our lives though her many years of prescription pill abuse and after multiple attempts to get her help I was left with no options. She many times endangered my children's lives while under the influence. I was distraught over the end of my marriage and the prospect of my children being taken away from me and living in what I know to be an unsafe environment. A friend referred me to Kevin O'Brien He made it clear from day one that he would fight to protect my children and ensure they were safe. His knowledge, professionalism and dedication went beyond anything I could have planned for or expected. I trusted him with my life and and working with Kevin is the best decision I could have made. I can happily say now that my children are living with me, we are moving forward and the worst is behind us. I have Kevin to thank for this.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Kevin for over twenty five years professionally as we have practiced in the same areas of Divorce and Family Law. He is always a strong advocate for his client, very well prepared, and a true credit to the legal profession.
