Kevin Streit has practiced in the litigation arena for the last sixteen years, and for most of that time he has focused on representing insurance companies in disputes over first-party and third-party insurance coverage.  Kevin has handled matters not only throughout Virginia, but also in Maryland, the District of Columbia, Tennessee, Indiana, and Texas.  He is admitted to practice in all federal and state courts in Virginia, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fourth and Ninth Circuits, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana.

In addition to representing insurance companies in coverage disputes, Kevin has defended clients in professional malpractice actions, consumer protection actions, and personal injury actions.

A Virginia native, Kevin returned to the Commonwealth to pursue a career in law after studying medieval history at the graduate level in Canada and in Seattle, Washington.  As well as maintaining his passionate love of history, Kevin is also an avid hunter and outdoorsman — hobbies which he tries to pursue when he is not busy representing his clients, volunteering in various ministries at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parish in Richmond, or spending time with his wife, son, and their dog, Pacquiao.  For the record, Kevin does not have a cat named Mayweather.
