A highly qualified and professional attorney.
I have referred Kevin Mcnamara to all of my clients who need assistance in the Family Law field. I have found my Clients are very happy with the professionalism and courtesy he has shown. Kevin has the ability to be a bullish and tenacious attorney when this disposition is required, yet on the other hand can manuever within the system with tact and respect. I highly recommend Kevin and will continue to refer my Clients and friends.

President, Hurricane Harrys, Inc.
Here is the deal with Mr. Mcnamara. You always know where you stand with him and get upfront accurate information. No games, hidden costs, or aggravating nonsense. He is very meticulous, and his legal theories are well thought out. My company has never lost a case with the Mcnamara law firm when we went to court. Often times he got my money without having to go to court. Best of all, you don't get a paralegal taking over your case after you pay your retainer, almost never conversing with your lawyer again like most of the big firms. Kevin is available and does a fantastic job. In closing, if you want your legal work done at a very fair prices, without games, nonsense, and hidden costs then give him a try. You won't be sorry and will thank me for writing this.

Excellent counselor and litigator with both street smarts and book smarts.
KevinMcNamara is an excellent attorney that I've relied upon for several years for counsel on real estate, family law and general legal issues. Kevin's advice is always sharp, well-informed, and extremely practical and grounded in the real world. In litigation, Kevin is a skilled, agile and determined fighter. I'm glad he's on my side.

Highly Recommended Lawyer
Kevin Mcnamara handled a custody dispute for me. He was amazingly attentive to my feelings and needs as a client and made the process incredibly smooth and easy for me. Kevin was always easy to reach, was open and realistic in everything I could expect and best of all achieved the outcome I desired. I would highly recommend his services and wish every lawyer conducted themselves in this manner.

Very Happy Former Client
Kevin is extremely knowledgeable and honest. I found his advice sound and reasonable and most important very straightforward. He does not waste your time or your money and seeks the best remedy possible.

An Excellent Attorney Highly Recommend
Kevin handled my recent divorce, and some additional new house title/ purchase work for me. He handled everything with finesse, kept me informed, and guided me through a serious legal of all, there were no "surprises" on the legal fees and everything went as discussed, unlike my wife's attorney who was a loose cannon, filing motions that were innapropriate and unecessary, and not in accordance with my wife's wishes - with unexpected fees to match!
