Mrs. Jones
Mr. Sharp is a great attorney. He assisted me when I was in a car accident. He was professional and efficient. He was always available when I reached out to him. His staff was courteous and helpful as well. He always kept me informed on what was happening with my case. I would definitely use his services again if I’m ever in that situation again and needed assistance.

"Kevin is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable and is a strong advocate for his clients."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Kevin is, without a doubt, one of the most intelligent attorneys when it comes to personal injury law. Kevin works tirelessly for those that have been injured through no fault of their own. He provides a quality of service that is unmatched. Having worked with him on several catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, Kevin was always available for the clients/families and was able to connect with the clients and help them through an extremely tough stretch of uncertainty. Having previously worked with insurance companies and knowing the insurance companies' strategies, he was and is able to position cases for maximum value for clients. I would highly recommend Kevin to friends and family without hesitation."
Personal injury Attorney | Jan 16
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Kevin Sharp is a top rated personal injury lawyer with over 20 years of experience. He practiced law on the defense side representing insurance companies and companies, but then he switched sides and became a Plaintiff’s injury lawyer early in his career and has done so ever since. He is very knowledgeable in personal injury, and exhibits the highest standards of ethics while representing his clients. I highly endorse him in the field of personal injury law including nursing home and medical malpractice cases."
