I currently live in Alaska and needed to be represented in NY for Child support and Custody. The first Consult with Kevin O'Brien was while I was in Iraq. During the consult, while discussing my case I felt at ease and hired his firm to represent me through the entire case. This was not a normal case of divorce with children, my case was bifurcated between Alaska and NY. Kevin O'Brien worked with my Alaska representation to ensure that between different State jurisdictions all aspects were covered and they were both working on my behalf towards one goal. Kevin was always available and responsive to any and all questions that arose and gave me straight and to the point advice of direction to proceed but as we moved through the process It my direction assisted by his council that direct the case.

I had a very rough divorce process. All areas of life were involved- house, kids, finances, etc. Kevin and his team were behind me 100%. They answered all questions both via phone and email, even when they were asked a few times for clarification. Kevin dealt with my ex trying everything he could to make this process go even longer- including firing his attorney four months in, to trying to cancel court appearances, to saying he was filing for bankruptcy. Kevin stuck to it, did not back down, and continued to prepare for trial. One week before the trial was scheduled he met with my ex (as he was representing himself) and Kevin told him this is what I'm going to do. My ex finally broke and we got an agreement written....prior to trial. Kevin and his team worked evenings and on the weekend to get this completed before the trial date.
While there were many bumps in the road, the outcome for myself and my children was worth the money spent. Looking back at where I started, and where I am now, all I can say is thank you. He fought for everything I asked for, and while it was not always an easy fight, he never backed down.

Kevin got the job done! He lined out what he would do in our initial meeting and did exactly that. I went to Kevin after already starting the process with another lawyer, and was immediately impressed. He returned calls in a timely manner and was committed to my case. I would recommend him to anyone that is going through a separation or divorce.

A very dear friend of mine recommended Kevin after I told him my previous attorney retired. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe Kevin. He listened, didn’t rush our meetings, didn’t speak down to me and brought the process home to me in plain language not lawyer speak. Hands down Kevin is great. If you find yourself filing for divorce make Kevin your first call.

Kevin, is outstanding, professional, and straight to the point type of attorney. He is very knowledgeable in family law and has several professional resources available in his pocket. Kevin was my third divorce lawyer, my previous attorneys both guaranteed me that they understood the military and state retirement systems, wishful thinking, they were awful (SNAFU). I was finally referred to Kevin, hence why I am finally divorced and why I highly recommend him for your case.

I engaged Kevin when my current attorney couldn't accomplish my goals. Kevin stepped in and immediately changed the tone of the conversation, which prompted the other side to come to the table with a more reasonable proposal. I enjoy time with my kids now because of Kevin's ability and efforts. I have recommended him many times to others looking for representation in contested situations.

Kevin and I worked great as a team on and off for 6 years from about 2005 until 2011. He was there for me every time I called and saw me through my divorce, my custody order and my child support proceedings. Aside from God, who led me to Kevin, he's what kept me grounded, assured, and confident during some of the darkest and scariest days. Divorces can get ugly, but I was comforted with Kevin on my side assuring me that I could get exactly what I sought, and I did!! Yes, he's experienced and knows the law, but he also understands his client's and speaks in your language. He's analytical, creative, equipped with great interpersonal skills and perseverance and will get the job done!

I hired Kevin O'Brien twice for different family matters. He got the job done quickly, exactly what was needed. He was able to expertly advise on the process, terms, and wording that would be able to fly through the court system unobstructed. Kevin is very easy to work with, and he stays on top of things to provide clear, accurate answers and as quick a resolution as possible.

I hired Kevin about 5 years ago to handle my divorce. From the first time I met with him he was very honest & upfront and easy to work with. One of the things that I liked about him is that he is very realistic but also very professional and levelheaded with dealing with the whole situation I was going through with my divorce.
Kevin and his staff were always available and easy to reach anytime I had a question or was looking to have a meeting. They were also very prompt with getting all the documents back to me and showing up to court on time. They did an excellent job representing me when they were dealing with my ex-wife's lawyer.
I have contacted Kevin 5 or 6 times over the past couple years with a couple of quick follow up questions and he always return my calls promptly and took his time to speak with me to answer the questions that I had. I think this is rare -he never charged me for any of those quick 10-15 minute follow up calls.
From the first time I spoke to him 5 years ago to the last time I spoke with him a couple weeks ago every time I hung up with him I felt like I was talking to a lawyer who really cared about my situation.
If you're looking for a very knowledgeable lawyer with a great personality and who is easy to work with and has a great staff I highly recommend Kevin and his staff.

Kevin was great at explaining in detail the entire process along the way. If I didn't understand something he would explain it again. The entire staff at the firm was always pleasant and my phone calls and emails were returned promptly. I told him what I wanted and he fought hard to get it for me.
