I hired Kevin J. Mcdevitt after being charged with multiple accounts of DUI and DWI charges. With this being my first offense, I was not familiar with the court or legal systems. Not only did Kevin familiarize me with the systems, he made sure that I was comfortable and confident when it finally came time to walk into that courtroom. After one unexpected continuation, my court date had finally arived and I was ready. They offered me a plea for one of the two DWI offenses, but with my newfound knowledge that Kevin bestowed upon me, I swiftly counter offered for a RECKLESS DRIVING and I succeeded! I am exstatic with my outcome and will definitely recommend Kevins services to anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation. Stay safe, and don't drink and drive!

Without a doubt, Mr. McDeviitt is the 2017 version of defense attorney Perry Mason. Just as Perry Mason defends dozens of falsely accused people and he manages to clear each and every one of them, so does Kevin J. McDevitt, Esquire. I have hired Mr. McDevitt several times for several different types of cases and each and every time he was SUCCESSFUL and I left the courtroom 100% vindicated!!! Not only was Mr. McDevitt successful in defending me against these false accusations, but he also guided me in the process of getting my record EXPUNGED from the false charges!! In my latest case, Mr. McDevitt had the plaintiff stammering so badly because they didn't even know how to respond to Mr. McDevitt!! Mr. McDevitt is absolutely BRILLIANT. He thinks very quickly on his feet; he is extremely articulate; he knows the law inside and out; and guaranteed he will give you the BEST legal representation that money can buy! God forbid I ever find myself (or any of my friends or family for that matter) in legal trouble again you can believe that we will be calling Mr. McDevitt. If you want to win your case you need to hire Mr. McDevitt asap!!!!
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I strongly endorse attorney Kevin McDevitt. Over the last 4 years, I have collaborated and consulted with him on scores of DUI/DWI and criminal matters. He is an experienced and competent advocate who zealously represents and works in the best interests of his clients. Notably, he is particularly sensitive to the adverse impact that an alcohol-related or criminal charge could have on the career of a military service member or federal government employee who holds a security clearance -- and he acts accordingly. Mr. McDevitt always represents his client in a manner that will afford him the best chance of retaining his security clearance. Having myself practiced in the field of National Security Law for the last 18 years, I must note that that Mr. McDevitt's sensitivity to and knowledge of the potential impact of DUI/DWI or criminal charges on a security clearance holder -- and how to handle such situations -- clearly distinguish him from most other attorneys.
