About Kevin

Learn Kevin’s areas of practice.

Originally from Buffalo, New York, I relocated to South Florida in 2008 to attend the University of Miami School of Law. While at the University of Miami, I initially clerked for a Miami Dade County Circuit Court Judge, and then spent 18 months at the Miami Dade Public Defender's Office as a certified legal intern. Upon my graduation in the spring of 2011, I sat for and passed the Florida Bar Exam, and was admitted to the Florida Bar in November of 2011. That same month, I began working for the Broward County Public Defender's Office, where I remained until 2013. When I left the Public Defender's Office, I worked for an insurance defense firm that primarily represented one of the largest insurance companies in the world. I quickly realized that representing large insurance companies was not for me, and I began my private practice in 2014. I have been practicing criminal defense and plaintiffs’ personal injury ever since, representing the rights of the accused and injured.

Great results/ great lawyer. Highly recommended!!!
Mr Kevin McGill is an incredible attorney! He shows attention and dedication to his job and clients, making them feel comfortable and worry less because he will make sure to get the best outcome and will not stop until he does. I know from my own personal experience and I cannot thank him enough for the job he provided. He honestly made the impossible, possible! Working the extra mile and encouraging me that everything will be okay and that we will fight till the end!I will forever be thankful for his hard work and motivation. I definitely recommend him to anyone that needs legal advice and I promise you will be in great hands! As well as his assistant Viviana, what a sweet young lady, she helped us keep calm through the whole time updating me with every step of the way. Once again, thank you to this wonderful team helping me through this tough time!

Unbelievable Attorney!!!
Lets just say I hope I never need another attorney but if I do it will be Kevin McGill. His approach to your case shows that he truly cares, he just doesn't take your case for the money unlike another attorney I had prior who only wanted the money and didn't care about my case which let me to hiring Mr. McGill. Mr. McGill gave me simple to understand sound legal advice and to the point which put me at ease and when I went to court, Mr. McGill showed how knowledgeable, skillful and with his calm but determined demeanor not only got me off but Mr. McGill followed up with me and guided me in the right direction to make sure I took all the necessary steps needed to ensure that I do well. Trust me, if you ever need an attorney who will care for you and your case and not just words please contact Mr. McGill, you will never regret it!

Astonishing attorney
I was served with an injunction from an Ex boyfriend back in April. Being that i had never been in any sort of trouble before was very unsure how to handle this type of situation. A friend of mine referred me to GMV where i meant Kevin. Kevin was a big help to me with my case . He educated me on what an injunction is and what the requirements are in order for an injunction to be granted and he reassured me that my ex had no upper hand in winning this case. Needless to say the injunction was never granted. From my personal experience with Kevin he is very professional very personable with a great work ethic. Thanks again Kevin and GMV

Domestic Violence Battery
I had the misfortune of finding out how poorly Broward County handles domestic disputes between spouses.... A neighbor called the police during an argument between my wife and I; were both professionals, had never been in trouble, and had little to no experience with police. Both my wife and I assured officers that we were fine and that there was no physical contact during the argument. Despite the fact that officers took my wife in the other room and told her that one of us was getting arrested, because it "was policy," they eventually left with neither of us in handcuffs. A few weeks later, while my wife was home alone, a lady claiming to be "a victim advocate" came to our door and said she just wanted to ask my wife a few questions. A few days later officers showed up and arrested me, with my wife in a hysterical panic, claiming that the state filed charges against me. Come to find out, the so called victim advocate embelished her report claiming my wife advised her of physical violence. After spending 12+ hours in jail, both my wife and I were a mix of angry, impatient, and frustrated with the legal system as a hole. And that was before I found out that I couldnt talk to my wife or stay in our house! Mr. McGill and his partner, Alan Grinberg, were extremely patient with me, and handled my case with the utmost care. While it took some time and an appearance in court, which was utterly embaressing, Mr. McGill was able to get my case dismissed. I cannot express enough thanks. Oh, and they also handled my wife's traffic ticket and were able to get that dismissed a few months later!

Proud to call Kevin a colleague
Kevin understands that every legal situation requires independent analysis and an approach that is custom-tailored for the facts at hand. He skillfully navigates every aspect of client representation in Broward County, whether that means filing the perfect motion, going into negotiations better prepared than the competition, or pouring his heart, soul, and mind into trial preparation. Kevin's reputation with judges and prosecutors is beyond reproach, as a result. Lastly--Kevin is the most competitive human being I've ever known. This inures greatly to his clients' benefit.

Great DUI Attorney
I had been in trouble before but never for anything too serious. A little over a year ago I got a DUI for passing out behind the wheel of a car. I found Alan Grinberg and Mr. McGill from a letter I received in the mail. Mr. McGill was able to get my case broken down or the charge reduced, whatever legal jargon the judge used. He saved my job and much more. I cant thank him enough.

Great Experience Under Horrible Circumstances
I met with several attorneys before I retained Mr. McGill and his partners. My son was facing some pretty terrible charges in Broward and I had already done some research on my own, and knew it wasnt good. Unlike all the other attorneys I met with, Mr McGill didnt tell me what I wanted or needed to hear, he told me in great detail exactly what would likely happen. He really treated us like we were human beings and not a customer or criminal. We have had other attorneys for small misdemeanor cases and family matters, and we literally could NEVER talk to them about our case. Mr. McGill or his partner Allan Greenberg, always got back to us, even if it took a few days. I can also so that while my son was in jail, Mr. McGill visited him more than I did. While he didnt always get there when he said he would, it felt like he saw him at least twice a month. He came highly referred to my son by another inmate that was in jail with him but when I first met him I thought to myself that he was too young. However I can honestly say that he is an amazing attorney and much more experienced than his appearance led me to believe. At the end of the day, while Mr. McGill wasnt able to get my sons case thrown out, he was able to get him an offer that was substantially below his scoresheet. God forbid we ever need a criminal defense attorney again, but if we do I would never go to anyone else! I only hope that as he gets even better and more popular that we could still afford him!
