When I consulted with Kevin, I knew right away i was going to hire him as my attorney. I was in the initial stages of a terrible divorce and Kevin immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. His "bedside" manner was tremendous as he was always able to share with me a sympathetic and compassionate side to my situation while at the same time keeping us focused on the task at hand. Every time I spoke he made me feel that what I had to say was important and that my input mattered. He is a phenomenal listener. From the very beginning Kevin laid out a strategy with purpose and confidence that was followed and executed brilliantly. Each time we met or talked on the phone he would let me know based on his vast experiences how things would play out, how I might feel during the process, and always made me like what we were doing and how we approached the divorce procedure was the correct and best way to go about it. Kevin made the most horrific time in my life an easier and more comfortable experience with his professionalism and unique ability to make me feel like I mattered as a human being. From day one Kevin assured me that ultimately I would one day be able to move on from this unfortunate experience and be a happier person. He was absolutely 100% correct and I will never forget him for assisting me. I have complete faith in Kevin and would recommend him to anyone going through a separation of divorce. Kevin is tremendous.

Mr. O'Brien was very informative and worked with me in a difficult time on an approach aimed at reaching a reasonable resolution for both parties. He supported my position in discussions with the opposing attorney and consultation with the judge without the need to attend court. Mr. O' Brien focused on the legal issues but at the same time understood as a father how difficult of a time this process was for me.

Before I had Mr. O'Brien, I felt I had to represent myself even though I had several other lawyers. I never got the feeling with them that I have with Mr. O'Brien. Since meeting Kevin, I have not felt that need to defend myself, for he more than adequately does that for me. He will push right up to the Judge's breaking point, pushing the envelope for what is right for his client and the family in general. When he speaks in the court room, everyone listens. He has such a presence that all hinge on the next words to come out of his mouth. He is calm, but not to calm!, methodical, logical and above all, caring, knowing the critical role he can have for a family in turmoil. This is the kind of man who represented me.

I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a divorce attorney. He gave me the confidence and support I needed throughout one of the most challenging events of my life. Kevin was frank during our discussions and did not waste time or energy. He provided balanced counsel and help me navigated the legal and very personal nature of the dispute. His billing was always accurate and reasonable; he was worth every penny. Lastly, Kevin was very responsive which helped to significantly reduce my level of stress throughout the process.

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.
