Construction/Zoning issue
Hired is not the correct word, invested in a journey through the legal system is a better discription. Has represented my family and property. Did what he says and been there for us, with each call/question/meeting.

The man to have in your corner
I contacted Kevin Breen and he was quick to respond and schedule a meeting. Kevin is straight to the point and his manner immediately establishes trust. He gave me hope in a desperate situation and works fast. Throughout the entire process, he was consistently responsive - there was never ambiguity. I cannot recommend him highly enough and if I am to ever find myself in a situation needing counsel again, he will be my first call.

OVI/DUI
Being accused of any charge can create a level of anxiety. Especially when you're not very knowledgeable regarding state laws. Attorney Kevin Breen represented me during a time when I thought there wasn't much hope. He was very prompt, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the case. He restored my hope. My charges weren't lowered, he got the case dismissed!! I am very please with his services. He is very professional & aggressive in the courtroom. I highly recommend his services.

OVI was Lowered to Reckless Driving with Kevin Breen's Legal Counsel.
The City of Cuyahoga Falls in the State of Ohio falsely accused me of an OVI. Kevin Breen was very aggressive and smart when handling my DUI legal case. I was very pleased with his legal counsel.
