I hired Kevin for a DUI/Refusal case this past January. He was very up front with the possible outcomes and did not make any promises or try to mislead me on any of the facts. That was one of the reasons for hiring him. His knowledge of the local procedures and sense of what the outcome could be was second to none. He clearly knew what most cases around the area ended with, but still always stated that it could go any way.
One area that others told me would be the most difficult, was the MVA hearing and actually it was straight forward and he handled it with ease. Before we even walked in he knew who the judge was and made it feel very informal. This helped with the overall outcome and the proceeding being more of a business affair then a hearing.
Overall he is well versed in with who the local people are and the standard practices of the area. You can not go wrong with hiring him. His background and networking I believe helps out a lot when it comes to cases and he really brings it out for you.

Hired Mr. McDevitt for family member involved in criminal matter that went on for some time. Hopeful this is a bad nightmare that has now ended! Kevin was knowledgeable, straight forward and patient in dealing with all parties in this matter. I highly recommend Mr. McDevitt!!!

My name is Lena and I hired Kevin back in 2014 with a serious charge (2nd degree murder) and he was very clear with me on what I was being charged with and he was honest with me about what would happen and he was very supportive and he helped me get sentenced fairly overall I would say he was the best I could have asked for
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.
