About Kevin

Learn Kevin’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    Family Law issues (including divorce, custody, child support, alimony, modification and contempt) requires working closely with clients to understand their unique situation, identify clear goals, and then aggressively pursue those goals.

  2. Estate planning
    My goal is to offers sound, thoughtful counsel to clients addressing end of life and estate issues. I work closely with clients to make sure that a client’s estate plan matches their estate goals. I also help clients probate wills and estates.

  3. Business
    I work with clients at all stages of a businesses cycle: from start ups, through drafting key contracts, to litigation (if such an event occurs), to selling or transferring ownership. I work with clients across a broad spectrum of industries.

  4. Litigation

  5. Child custody

Strong, competent and fair legal representation for my business lawsuit!
Kevin is an agressive litigator. He knows the law and was able to provide the best legal representation around. He was always available and explained the process so that I could understand it. He's a great strategist. I was fortunate enough to have a very favorable outcome. I would highly recommend him to represent anyone involved in a business lawsuit! I would definately use him again if the need arises.
