About Kevin

Learn Kevin’s areas of practice.

Kevin Mahoney received his B.A., Ed.M and J.D. all from the State University of New York at Buffalo. As a member of HoganWillig's Family and Criminal Law Departments, Mr. Mahoney regularly assists individuals who are in a very difficult time of their lives. He believes it is his task to calmly offer skilled advice and perspective during what is often a difficult or emotionally charged situation.

 

In the area of family law, Mr. Mahoney and his colleagues assist individuals with family court proceedings which most commonly involve custody/visitation and/or paternity and support proceedings. They also assist individuals in all aspects of Supreme Court matrimonial proceedings, such as actions for divorce, separation, or those seeking an enforcement of a previously entered judgment or agreement (post divorce issues).

 

Mr. Mahoney is also a member of WNY Collaborative Law Professionals, Ltd. and is trained in collaborative law, a process where the parties and their attorneys agree to work together to problem solve their issues in order to resolve their case by agreement with an express indication at the outset that Court or adversarial negotiation tactics will not be used.

 

He is also trained as a mediator and can work with separating couples by acting as a neutral guiding their discussions and preparing their necessary legal documents ultimately resulting in a comprehensive agreement which may form the terms of a future Judgment of Divorce or other Court Order.

 

Although the majority of cases in the family law arena are resolved by agreement, for those cases where litigation is necessary, our office has in the past and will continue in the future to aggressively bring issues of importance to the attention of the appropriate court in order to bring about appropriate relief.

 

A further subset of our family law work may involve child-protective proceedings, family offense cases, and those involving troubled children such as PINS or juvenile delinquency proceedings.

 

In the criminal law area, Mr. Mahoney has handled numerous cases in local, state, and federal courts.  Each case, although different, required a thorough understanding of an individual's background as well as the underlying facts that lead to the charge(s) so that the defense was appropriately presented. Time is spent to investigate these issues and to fully explain various strategies so the client is informed as to the various steps in the case.

 

He also works in our Emergency Services Department which assists various companies and individual fire and ambulance personnel with a wide range of issues from bylaw modification and contract review to internal (company level) and external (e.g. DOH) discipline.

 

Mr. Mahoney is a proud father of two, a former competitive women's coach in the USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic program, an active interior volunteer firefighter and is certified as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

Kevin is an extremely qualified lawyer and absolutely kind person.
I am extremely grateful to Kevin Mahoney for his help. Kevin is an absolutely kind person and, as I witnessed, an extremely qualified lawyer. The police issued me two tickets, one for having a forged safety inspection sticker, and the other for displaying it. Both are criminal charges. Kevin was amazing in the Amherst Town Court; he was able to have the charges reduced to the fine for driving the car with a lapsed inspection.

Wonderful Attorney as well as a wonderful person.
I was very fortunate to have Kevin Mahoney as my legal counsel during my divorce. He (as well as his staff) were always professional and very caring. After a 30 year marriage, it was, to say the least, a complicated divorce. I could not have had better counsel. I would highly recommend Kevin and the entire Hogan Willig team.

Quality Service with a personal touch
Over the years I have had little need for legal council with the exception of real estate transactions and estate planning. I have long carried the commonly held opinion of the legal profession as one of selfishness with elitists motivated only by the almighty dollar. My experience with Kevin Mahoney and his firm was a refreshing surprise and honestly changed my opinion of the profession. As a result of wrongdoing by a family member I was charged with numerous traffic violations and infractions. The situation was quite serious and I was in need of an attorney; one that could understand and respond quickly to my needs. From the first contact with Kevin I felt a sense of relief knowing he understood my problem and was willing to address it in a timely fashion. He understood the immense personal stress that the situation had caused to me and worked with me under the circumstances. When I needed to appear in Court I was terrified. Kevin gave me the personal attention that allowed me to understanding the process and put me at ease. He took complete control of the situation and handled it with a high level of professionalism. I left the court room feeling a huge sense of relief knowing I had the right attorney at my side. While my case is still pending and awaiting outcome I have confidence that I the services I have received from Kevin and his firm will provide me the best opportunity for a positive outcome. I would recommend Mr. Mahoney and his firm to anyone who is looking for great service and high competence.

Recommend with some reservation
Kevin is a nIce, helpful, knowledgeable attorney. However, he charged me $125 for a one hour consultation that I believe most attorneys would have done for free, so this makes me question his/his firm's level of honesty and integrity.
