This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
The poster of the negative review received full compensation and attorneys fees for his claim. We were his successor counsel after his first attorney ended the representation. A dispute arose over whether attorneys fees could be credited in any way back to the client, something federal law prohibits. The firm provided the client full relief, this we were surprised by his review, particularly after he expressed appreciation for the firm’s efforts.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

“Buyer Beware.”
I was a client of Kevin Byrnes and I would not recommend him as an attorney. Don’t construed experience as success. Ambiguity with him is your loss. As a client, I did not like that he constantly boasted of select past cases and I also did not like the ongoing attorney/client disagreements. My recommendation? Take your chances with another attorney. I’ve also noticed one of his employees recommended him in a review. I’ll end this review as I started it: “Caveat Emptor or Retain at your own RISK.”
