Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    40%
    You are a victim and you seek a remedy. Quality experience counts, as does someone who understands what it is you have lost. My office treats the client as a real-world person with real-world problems. You are not just a name on documents, or a payday at the end of the case. If you have been injured, call me at 1-888-773-0758

    30 years

  2. Criminal defense
    35%
    As an assistant district attorney, I was very tough on crime. As a defense attorney, I bring the same toughness to bear on my opponent. I have a very thorough approach from the beginning, starting with the intake interview, through the pretrial/motion stage. I know what motions to bring, and how to try them, I know what works, and what doesn't. At trial, I fight doggedly fot my clients. Experience counts, and quality experience may mean the difference between conviction or liberty.

  3. Other
    25%

I have been in courtrooms since 1987 trying cases, the first five as an assistant District Attorney. I handle personal injury cases, worker's comp, and criminal cases. Depending on the facts, I also handle civil rights.

 

Your personal injury is personal to you. For that reason, each case is handled on a case-by-case basis. You are a person who is injured, a victim; not just a name.

 

Worker's compensation has become more complex. I strive to get the best overall award, taking into account other issues such as disability and social security, along with any personal injury cases that may be possible.

 

When it comes to criminal cases, I take a backseat to no one. I am thorough in my preparation, from pretrial motions/hearings through the conclusion of the case.

One smart lawyer
Kevin Guyette was the lead attorney in a complicated intellectual property law suit and I was impressed with his mastery of the facts and his knowledge of the law and trial procedures. He is an extremely smart man and I would trust him to handle any litigation matter.

Was A Bulldog When We Needed One
Kevin represented me in a Civil Case and was exactly what we needed, someone who could vehemently pursue the truth of the matter and secure a settlement. He was easy to work with and professional throughout.

You're on your own.
Kevin was a disaster for me. He totally neglected my case, a harassment charge. I never heard from him from the day he took my retainer fee to the day I dismissed him. Six months He also never contacted the Court. I mean literally never. Then he violated confidentiality by submitting a false and damning Affirmation which totally prejudiced the judge in a non-jury trial. He claimed I was harassing my accuser by wanting to go to trial! This was after I had dismissed him. He also had a damaging conflict of interest insofar as his secretary was also part-time secretary to the presiding judge of my case. In withdrawing from my defense, his letter to Court contained several garbled statements and grammatical or spelling mistakes.He was consistently abrasive, insulting, and barely under control. He acted more as my prosecutor than defender, often bullying me (or trying to). The experience with him was a nightmare. As of his last contact with me, his bill, he still didn't know how to spell my name. I can prove this.

Response from Kevin Guyette January 27, 2015
If this writer is in the right, and feels that the truth is on his side, then he should not remain anonymous. This is defamatory, and shame on AVVO for posting it. This anonymous person should not hide, but should instead post my Affirmation, in its entirety, so all readers may see and judge. Perhaps then AVVO would not publish things recklessly.
