Posted by Mike
While recognizing my divorce was not the worst, it certainly was the most difficult period of my life. I initially represented myself until things became contentious as the time to finalize neared. I then became a client of Kevin Zlock. Kevin presented the perfect combination of professionalism and lightheartedness that put me at ease. He was very straightforward about how he felt the courts would rule and kept focus on what really mattered to me. There are truly no winners in a divorce, especially when children are involved, and the best possible outcome was explained in detail. Most importantly, Kevin listened to what I wanted, and didn’t push me into litigation. In my particular case, he was able to act as an intermediary with opposing council and when I was satisfied with an agreement the courts were avoided.
I also had several interactions with other professionals at Zlock & Coverdale. In particular, Kevin’s paralegal, billing representatives and receptionist were all extremely courteous, understanding and thorough. All of my concerns were addressed during that stressful time which I believe made the experience as good as it could have been. I would highly recommend Kevin Zlock to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

Kevin Zlock, Karen and the entire staff at Zlock & Coverdale are very professional. He guided me through my divorce and custody case which was extremely emotional. Unfortunately I had hired an attorney before finding Kevin (a costly lesson learned). Thankfully Kevin came to my rescue. He explained everything and truly looked out for my best interest. He even called me while he was on vacation. I highly recommend him and the Zlock & Coverdale practice.

I have the utmost respect for Kevin. Professionally he is extremely experienced, bright, and a winner. Personally he has first class ethical and moral standards, and is completely straight-forward with you whether you are going to like what you will be hearing or not. With regards to the office, they were incredibly friendly and professional, further contributing to an overall excellent experience given the circumstances.
All the above is true, and I'll share some specific details from my case: First off, it was a very contentious case involving custody primarily, and also support. This should have been a very stressful period, and it was, but it was mitigated significantly by Kevin's expertise. His ability to resolve my current issue and also forecast and plan ahead relieved me quite a bit and removed a significant portion of the burden. There were numerous occasions where Kevin would meet with me on the weekend, sometimes very early in the morning, or take a late night call when something had come up. When we did not connect, he was always very prompt with his response time.
Easy to work with and pleasant to talk to, Kevin is someone that I would recommend to anyone in my life whether they, or someone they might know, is in need of the services of a family law attorney. I found it very difficult to choose a lawyer, as there is no 'Consumer Reports' for attorneys, and it's not easily reviewable online. That said, if you are looking for the best attorney in Bucks County, look no further than Kevin Zlock.

I retained Kevin for custody and support after being referred to him by two different people.
My custody dispute was very high conflict and there's no doubt in my mind that Kevin was the best fit.
The custody process proved to be the most challenging time of my life. Not only did Kevin provide sound advice throughout the entire process but he helped me to make some very important decisions. This in turn helped my long term custody goals. I would not have made the same decisions without his expertise.
Kevin was well prepared for each court appearance. He knew my case inside and out. I was impressed with the level of detail he remembered about issues dating back almost 18 months.
Given the circumstances of my case, I could not be happier with the outcome. I have absolutely no regrets about retaining Kevin and would highly recommend him.
The staff at Zlock and Coverdale was truly amazing. I did not have the pleasure of meeting everyone in the office but those who I did meet were so kind and so very helpful.
Karen was the paralegal that worked with Kevin on my case. Her kind heart, gentle spirit, and hard work were instrumental in helping my case. Words cannot express my gratitude for her.
Mary has been wonderful in accommodating my appointment needs with Kevin. She was very patient with me at times when I knew I was being a "scheduling nightmare".
Yvonne has been on the ball with responding to my billing questions in a timely fashion. At times I ask a lot of questions and she too has been very patient.
I still have divorce proceedings in the not too distant future. Kevin is the only attorney I would even consider having to represent me.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing level of conflict and coparenting issues, I will more than likely need an attorney for several more years. Fortunately, I have the confidence in Kevin and can continue to consult with him as needed when issues arise.
Thank you, Kevin, for representing me. I truly appreciate all you have done.

Consulted with Kevin about a legal matter. He was upfront, honest and professional in giving his unbiased opinion. He was extremely helpful and set me on the right course. I would highly recommend him.

I was referred to Kevin by another client and I cannot say enough how great my experience was. His professionalism exceeded my expectations. I needed Kevin for a custody hearing. Kevin's strong suit is not ONLY in front of the master and opposing counsel but in his ability to prepare me for what was going to happen, how to act, remain in control, and predict step by step through the conference and his game plan was right on!!! I knew exactly his plan, and what he wanted to accomplish with each statement. Knowing that, I was able to make clear and confident decisions because I didn't feel rushed. It almost had a calming effect on me in a most uncomfortable situation.
While I hope to never need his services again, if need be, I would never go anywhere else.

I consulted with Mr. Zlock four times over two years with regard to my divorce and custody. Each time he would explain all available options and consequences of choices made. Often an option was an "eye opener". Highly recommend.

Kevin has been fabulous in helping me deal with my divorce! I (obviously) could not do have done this without him! Despite being emotionally exhausted with all of this, he has helped me remain calm, cool, and collected. I truly appreciate all of his kindness and genuineness with everything, as well and looking out for me and my best interests. He has explained everything to me each step of the way, in a way in which was logical and made sense to me. Thank you thank you!!

I would a recommend Katherine Coverdale of Zlock and Coverdale to anyone who is in need of domestic legal counsel. Kate handled a complicated QUADRO matter for me. Opposing counsel was strong but Kate didn't back down. She stood up for me and explained what she was doing every step of the way. Kate is professional and knowledgeable but also approachable. Kate explained the law and the legal process to me in every day language so it was easier to understand. Kate made herself directly available to me. Kate's responses to my inquiries were often immediate and certainly within the day. I can see why Kate is considered to be at the top of her profession - she is thorough, efficient, and hardworking. I trusted her judgement and I am glad I did.
Thank You Kate!

I met with an attorney (not Zlock and Cloverdale) and felt comfortable with the information I was given… the attorney helped sort out custody issues and parenting issues, and it felt like I had a good handle on things; but when we went to the Family Master meeting, I was informed most of the information was incorrect. I gave my ex everything he asked for, and then immediately he would change his mind about what he wanted – there was no way for me to resolve the situation on my own. I needed to hire a new lawyer – fast – our hearing was in seven days.
I scoured the web looking for a new lawyer. I considered hiring Kevin Zlock after reading “the lion and the lamb review” from another client on Avvo.com. “A lion and a lamb” was exactly what I needed. A two for one – a combination of fierce and calm. I needed someone who wasn’t arrogant, a jerk or too busy for me, yet able to resolve issues without adding drama or more stress for me or my children. I needed someone who would be on our side, and could make sense out of this potentially disastrous situation. I decided to interview four attorneys. Kevin Zlock was number two – I had high hopes, but knew I needed to meet with him in person before making a decision. We met and I liked Kevin immediately. I wanted a nice lawyer, someone I could relate to and I needed a quick, logical, and responsive advocate who would be knowledgeable and provide competent counsel – I could not compromise. During my meeting with Kevin, I was not disappointed. I was confident Kevin could get the job done. I cancelled the other two attorney interviews before leaving the parking lot.
Fast forward a week. We sorted emails and text messages, and decided what was most important, mildly important and irrelevant during our second meeting, (which kept us in his office until 11:00 pm on Sunday evening, on a holiday weekend) the night before our hearing. Even though the hearing was only a few hours away, we were both calm and collected. Kevin knew what was important to me and I was comfortable we’d make good partners. I had my list of “no compromise” and my list of “whatever’s” and my ideal outcome. Kevin instructed me how to dress, testify, and address those in the courtroom.
The next morning we met again briefly, then went to the hearing. I just sat there. Kevin and the other party had a conference. Kevin got the most important and no compromise things without a hitch, we gave a little on the issues which were non-issues for me, and Kevin didn’t confuse the two. My children were relieved they would not have to talk to the judge, nor make decisions about their living arrangements and now they wouldn’t be put in the middle of this contention – they can just be kids. Kevin was able to negotiate the best possible outcome for my children. Thanks Kevin.
