Best lawyer in the area !
As soon as I contacted about taking on my case he put my mind at ease. He was clear with me about his plans to help me get my charges , dui and possession , dropped. He went above and beyond for me , the results were even better than I could have ever expected! I hope I never need his services again but if I do or anyone else I know does , Kevin Stewart will be my only recommendation

Outstanding
Mr. Stewart's hard work, dedication, commitment, honesty, and perseverance throughout my whole legal process was second to none. He stood beside me and guided me through this challenging time of my life. I told him the outcome I wanted in my case and he delivered it 100%. Kevin handled everything with professionalism, but even more importantly took a personal interest in the best outcome possible for my case. Throughout the process I felt like he was not only my legal counsel but also a friend who wanted and fought for what was best for me. I will forever be grateful to him for the job he did. I highly recommend Kevin for anyone who needs legal representation or counsel and will continue to put my trust in him shall any more legal needs arise. Again, he delivered on the best outcome in my case, which is exactly what I told him in my initial consultation.

Great Lawyer, Bad Situation
Let me start by saying Kevin Stewart did me an my ex-wife's family a favor by handling our divorce. He is not a divorce attorney by trade but agreed to help me file and do what I needed to as I had no clue. He was very nice and respectable and did everything he could to help me get through a thing such as tragic as divorce. Even though it didn't turn out to be quite so amicable as I had hoped he took care of everything and even helped me to keep my emotions in check so that I didn't do anything to hastily. Mind you a vindictive ex and ex-father in-law can really put a hurting on your emotions. But he kept me focused and us on task. All in all I would love to meet this guy at a barbeque, but I would hate to meet him on the opposite side of me in the court room. Glad he was in my corner. Thanks Kevin

Better than the rest!
Kevin Stewart is a phenomenal attorney as well as an upstanding person. Through the entire process, Mr. Stewart was professional and was fully aware of the situation, circumstances, and the possible outcomes. Kevin Stewart was very down-to-earth and very personable while walking me through the entire process. I felt as if I was literally, one of his family members. Anyone that solicits his sevices will be getting the best overall representation as well as legal team; starting with the lovely secretary, Barbara. Thank You Kevin Stewart and thank you Victor Carmody Law firm.

Kevin Thomas Stewart review
I have never needed a lawyer. I had no idea how to go about finding the right one to represent me. I did an online search and made some calls. Mr. Stewart really stood out above all others I interviewed. He is extremely thorough and professional. I was quite pleased with the final settlement and really glad that everything worked out for me. I would highly recommend him.

Good Lawyer
I hired him to defend regarding my case of Possession of Marijuana and Drug paraphernalia. From day one he was very straightforward in the way he was going to handle the defense and about his fees. On the negative side, he was not very communicative for long periods, which can be a little unsettling. However, he delivered on the promised outcome of the case. I would personally recommend him for cases similar to mine.

Misdemeanor/felony defense subsequent to dispute with ex-wife
Kevin did an amazing, seemingly effortless job of handling my case. His experience and vision allowed for a level of preparedness and contingency planning that frankly humbled me on the day we faced the judge. What was almost as important as his skill in defending me was the way Kevin was ALWAYS a calming influence on me. Though the ground under me seemed to be quaking, his confident, reassuring manner kept me focused and grounded throughout the process. Lord knows...I needed that. Finally, Kevin is a just a good guy. He's down-to-earth and straightforward. I feel like we were able to relate to one another on a very personal level. I was able to communicate with him frankly and directly. Kevin's just a cool, laid back character...and a damned competent attorney. Hiring him was time and money well spent.

The Best bar none (no pun intended)
Extremely effective and knowledgeable attorney. Highly professional and went above and beyond all my expectations. Kept me abreast of everything happening with my case. He was honest and forthright about my odds a winning defense, and his confidence showed me I was in capable hands. I would not hesitate to reccomend Atty Stewart to anyone in need of competent defense representation.

Kevin Thomas Stewart Outstanding Lawyer!!
Outstanding Lawyer, worked very hard for the outcome I was looking for. Mr. Kevin Stewart services as my lawyer were amazing! He was able to get the outcome I wanted very badly, by getting the case dropped. If I ever find myself needing a lawyer again, Mr. Stewart is my number 1 choice.

Kevin Stewart Number 1 Lawyer all the way!
Not being from Mississippi Kevin went out of his way to help us. Kevin & his office staff went beyond means to help us in anyway they could. I would definitely recommend Kevin's services.

Highly Recommended
Recently I found myself in an unfortunate situation of getting my first DUI. For me this was a life altering situation. Although a first DUI is a misdemeanor, the consequences can be devastating and career limiting. I needed a good lawyer. After extensive web searches and recommendations from local residents I found myself calling Mr. Stewart. From our first conversation I knew I had found the right lawyer. Mr. Stewart was very upfront about my case and the expected results. I soon realized that not only had I retained Mr. Stewart services but all the wonderful support staff at his law office. Knowing that I had this level of support gave me a peace mind that I was in trusted hands. Not a single one of my phone calls to Mr. Stewart went unanswered. In fact, due to sensitivity of the matter phone calls to Mr. Stewart were difficult to make during work day. Mr. Stewart was prepared to discuss my case beyond the normal work day if necessary. Although appreciative of his offer, I managed to communicate with him electronically with immediate responses from him. Well and now for the good news…..Case dismissed. So, thank you Mr. Stewart for understanding my predicament and for being the voice of reason during these turbulent times. Best Wishes, MM

Mr. Stewart is a very good lawyer
I had the opportunity for Mr. Stewart to represent me in two cases, both of which worked out in my favor. Mr. Stewart negotiates well, but is very aggressive when called for.

Great Lawyer
I had gone through a checkpoint, and had been in Mississippi a week from out of state. He kept me informed and let me know all my options & the reality of what to expect. He was well versed in the players of the court, & had me finished in time to make my fight. Highly recommend Mr. Stewart

DUI help
Mr. Stewart helped me out of a big mess. I know without his assistance I would have ended up with my drivers license suspended and paying a lot of money toward fines. From day one when we contacted him he stayed in touch with us. We always knew what was going on and what the next step would be. He was upfront and honest about my DUI situation. He guaranteed he would do all he could to help with the issue but never guaranteed what the outcome would be. I know nothing about DUI laws but Mr. Stewart knew exactly what to do. I hope to never be in that situation again but I would definitely recommend him to anyone else needing help with a DUI ticket/citation. He really helped me out and I know he could help others in similar situations..

Out of State and Didn't Know Where to Turn
I hired an attorney in Tupelo first and could never reach him and he kept changing apt. times. My court date was fast approaching and I had no idea what my lawyer was going to do. I searched the internet and found Mr. Stewert. It was a risk, in my opinion, at the time. Best risk I ever took. After a series of events which he communicated consistantly with me- and answered every communication I sent him, my case was dismissed! Wonderful!

Excellent Representation
I blew a point zero eight in the state of Mississippi and after a bad first trial (which I knew was not going to be in our favour after Kevin made a motion only to hear the Judge say "I must be stupid, I have no idea what you're talking about") the case was thrown out of court before appeals. Kevin is a true bulldog, he will definitely fight the full 100 for you and won't leave prosecutors alone until you get the best deal or a fair trial. Would definitely work with him again.

"Attorney Stewart is a lawyer of high skill and a true sense of right and wrong. By way of illustration, I had an Apache helicopter pilot who came to me because his medical certificate was going to be pulled for an apparent DUI conviction in MS. The troubling part of it was that he was deployed defending us overseas in an active war zone when the state of MS found him guilty. It was clearly identity theft as he could not be thousands of miles away flying a heavily laden multi-million dollar attack helicopter and driving in the state of MS at the same time. I, being in Pennsylvania, was getting no where. I made a phone call to Attorney Stewart. He took to the case using all of his professional knowledge, reputation and experience to right the clear wrong. The serviceman was not only exonerated but was cleared for further duty, was able to keep his commission and was deployed overseas to fight the important war on terror. All due to Attorney Stewart."

This guy has a national reputation and I'd highly recommend that anyone charged with DUI in Mississippi hire him."
