Family Law Attorney
Mr. Puckett represented me in a very continuous divorce and child custody case. I can not say enough good things about him and his associates. Having no idea about the law and process, I found Mr. Puckett to be very professional and knowledgeable. He made every effort to make sure I knew the why of things when I was confused. He fought for me and always gave me good advice. Mr. Puckett does not sugar coat anything and tells you exactly what the process is. Many times, I found myself distressed about different processes and Mr. Puckett and his associates were always available to talk to and reassure me that they were looking after me and my children’s best interest. Mr. Puckett was able to provide services that gave me the best possible outcome in my case. I would highly recommend his law firm to anyone going through a divorce.

Custody modification
Mr. Puckett was very professional and helpful as well as his staff . Very straight forward and hard working. Knowledgable and really knows what he is doing in a court room. Couldn’t have hired a better lawyer to handle my custody case .

Excellent Attorney
Kevin Puckett and his entire firm have gone far beyond expectations for the excellent representation they gave to me with my case. I could drop Kevin an email concerning my case and he would reply within minutes and they always answered the phone when called. Kevin helped me get through a very traumatic time in my life and I can never thank him and his firm enough. If you ever need legal representation, I highly recommend The Puckett Law Firm

Great Team
I retained Kevin Puckett for my family law needs and was very pleased with the outcome! His office manager Heather is wonderful to work with, very detailed and found outside of the box thinking for problem-solving tactics. Kevin was full of information and got the judgment I was looking for to help me and my son.

Best Divorce Lawyer Ever!
I had 7 other consultations with allegedly the "best" divorce lawyers in town. Kevin was better than all of them combined. I learned more from him in 30-mins of chatting than from all the others. I hired him months ago and he absolutely obliterated my ex. I got full sole custody, child support, and maintenance!

Best Lawyer i could have asked for!
I definitely recommend Mr. Puckett. He and his staff went above and beyond to help me in my divorce case with a autistic child involved. Mr. Puckett made it super easy to understand everything that was going to happen in the case step by step and never failed to explain something if i had any questions. He got right to the point and the court dates went smoothly. Mr. Puckett helped me secure everything i had asked for and more. I will forever appreciate Mr. Puckett and his staff for everything they have done for my son and i.

Lots of help in a tough situation
Kevin did an awesome job. He made sure I understood everything about my case from top to bottom and was always there to answer any questions I had. He is a no-nonsense straight shooter that wont back down from a fight. Should I ever need assistance again Kevin would be my first call!

Exceeded expectations.
Kevin is a great family law attorney! He is dependable and very assertive. He clearly has the respect of his opposing counsel, but also the local judges. If you have a family law matter, this is your guy!

Absolutely do not recommend!
He was hired by me for my case outside of Avvo. I felt less than respected by this attorney. I wouldn’t wish for anyone else to go through this treatment. In my opinion, there are much more professional and reasonable attorneys in the area that will treat you with respect and dignity.

Relationship: Friend
"As law school classmates nearly a decade ago, Kevin and I were the worker bees in a nerdy group focused on how technology and law intersect. Since licensure, we've collaborated on numerous family law cases. Kevin is a rare gem in the KC family law bar. Why? Because Kevin demands the same level of accountability and competence from everyone around him that he tirelessly provides day after day to his clients. Honestly, I tell my clients, "If anything happens to me during your case, call Kevin." Big fan. Highly recommend!"
