Voice of Reason
Kevin Handy did a great job handling my case. He was often the voice of reason during an otherwise chaotic time and was mindful of costs. I would highly recommend his services.

Smart, Knowledgeable Attorney
Forthright, steely, and extremely smart, Kevin Handy is a fantastic attorney. He prosecuted my divorce matter, which was resolved successfully and to my benefit. Two things impressed me most about Kevin: 1) he is not intimidated by anyone and remained calm and in-control at all times, even when faced with a belligerent spouse and opposing counsel, and a chaotic courtroom; 2) owing to his intelligence, he is able to find and create options and solutions where none appear to exist. Through a thorough inspection of our financial records, he found an account I didn't even know about, had it frozen by the court, and saved it from being utterly depleted by my ex. He was both a defender and a reassuring presence during the ordeal of my divorce.

Great Lawyer
Kevin was excellent in guiding me realistically in the process of my divorce and child custody. He gave advice that helped me to save money and make the process as painless as possible. I didn't have any surprises throughout the process. I would highly recommend him.

Reliable, knowledgeable and reasonably priced!
Attorney Handy assisted me with a misuse of civil proceedings case which stemmed from a family law matter. Kevin is knowledgeable and responsive. He and his office staff kept me apprised of the case throughout the litigation process. He is easy to get a hold. The best part is that he knows the law and not only did we win the case at the Court of Common Pleas level, we won the case in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. Thanks Kevin!

"I wholeheartedly endorse Kevin Handy for divorce and family law matters. I worked with Kevin on a complex matter and he is a uniquely qualified, persistent, intelligent, and skillful advocate. His prior experience and complex litigation matters gives him The ability to simplify what is complicated. He is also uncommonly collaborative when helpful or necessary. This combination makes him the “go to“ lawyer for divorce and family law matters. I recommend him without reservation."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Kevin Handy since law school and it is an honor to be able to endorse him. Working as a family lawyer in such litigious and often acrimonious times, can be extremely difficult. You need a social worker, counselor, anger management therapist and lawyer wrapped into one. And, with Kevin Handy, you get all of that and more. He knows the law inside and out and will do all to advocate zealously for his clients. But, he also possesses a steady hand so he knows when to fight and when to pull back and let the other party hurt themselves. If you need assistance in a divorce, child custody, child support or alimony situation, I highly recommend you contact Kevin Handy. You will not be disappointed."
