Excellence and Integrity
Kevin is quite the outstanding Attorney in his field. He is unafraid to tackle the big obstacles that might stand between him and his clients best interests, including mean or pushy opposition attorneys and/or judges who may not fully comprehend the extent of the damages his client may have sustained. Im my case, Kevin Staas stayed with me for nearly 4 years righting the despicable wrongs perpetrated upon me by a sleazy husband and wife tag team of Lies who were hell bent on destroying my life at all costs. Kevin was cool and calm and prevailed with his passive aggressive style of approach. He is not only kind and sensitive to his clients pain and suffering, his dedication to seeking out legal arguments and cases to defend and to go after my opponents, proved him a worthy adversary to have on the side of right, my side. I now consider Kevin Staas my personal friend and to top it all off, he got me a judgment of $123,000. Kevin is "The Man". You would do well to seek out his council.

Real Estate
I have used Kevin Staas, Esq. twice to handle a real estate closing and each time the experience was quick and pleasant. He, as well as his staff, has been helpful, knowledgeable and easy to work with. Best of all, he speaks plain English verses legal gibberish. I have and will definitely continue to recommend him to my family and friends!

Two Thumbs Up!!
Kevin is our family lawyer. I have worked with many attorneys in my career. When I moved to Florida, I was referred to Kevin. He was just starting out after having been appointed as an Assistant State Prosecutor. We have come to know him, his staff and extended family. All quality people. As for his legal ability, Kevin is outstanding. He has matured professionally and it shows. I know some people are more inclined to use large firms, but I find that a smaller boutique firm fits our needs much better. His staff are professional and credentialled, a rare quality in larger firms. This tells me that he wants to give the best service and legal representation possible; obviously he leadership and demanding professional requirements for his staff are indicative of his professionalism and the value he places on his clients. I have no reservations and am glad to refer Kevin and his firm to anyone willing or needing an attorney.

A Good Lawyer is Hard to Come By
While moving into a new town where I hardly knew anyone and no one knew me I found myself in need of a lawyer. As luck would have it (for the other lawyers were too busy to take me on as a case) I landed at Mr. Kevin Staas' doorstep. Personally I find the law confusing and coming from a different state I needed to learn quickly about my rights, as I explained my case Mr Staas, he made me feel immediately comfortable and that I was not alone in my time of duress. He explained, he kept me informed, he consulted with other lawyers, he researched and dedicated his time and knowledge with me in such an easy and comprehensible manner that I knew I was in good hands. My emotions wanted to take over while Kevin kept giving me good sound council, advice and direction that I was able to make the right decisions at the right time. He restored my faith in the human race by his trustworthiness and his ethical manner of his work. In a friendly environment he got down to some very serious business. He always kept me informed of any new or changing issues. But most of all he made me feel welcomed and respected. I'll always be grateful.

Hard working lawyer
My experience with Kevin Staas was excellent. Our condominium association hired Kevin to represent the association with a property tax appeal. Kevin was very effective in his handling of the case. We won the appeal. Kevin kept us informed throughout the process and was reasonable in his fees.

He accomplished the impossible!
Kevin was the man that took a chance with our unusual situation. His knowledge and persistence helped us accomplish what was thought to be impossible. From the moment we met Kevin, we knew he was the one! The connection we felt was instant, and he understood exactly what we needed to accomplish. Kevin was willing to, and did everything that was necessary to succeed, even though these were paths that were not walked on by him or others before. We would recommend Kevin with the utmost confidence to anyone that is looking for an amazing lawyer! He will go beyond what needs to be done! He is the one you want by your side!
