Great Counselor of Law
I contacted, consulted with and hired Kevin Cavanaugh after searching through many attorneys outside of Avvo. Kevin is a wonderful attorney and person. I had a terrible divorce where my ex-spouse was trying to take away my custody rights with our children for over 3 years. Kevin was readily accessible, it didn't matter what time. He answered my calls and was fair with his attorney's fees. Kevin would tell me all options and avenues to take with my divorce. I prefer to refer him as a counselor, as he truly took "real" interest in my case and I could always rely on him to give solid advice. I highly recommend Kevin. Without his help I'm sure I would have lost my parental rights. I'm so glad I found him.

Client of Mr. Cavanaugh
I have worked with Kevin for approximately 3 years. He was the first attorney I ever hired and he always displayed patience, empathy, understanding, and integrity. He was always accessible for any questions I had, whether it be 2 am or 9 pm. He would always keep me in the loop about the constant changes with our case and he always informed me on how he was going to handle it. I had the absolute pleasure of working with him and will continue to hire him for any additional needs I will have.

Kevin was very professional in his representation of me. He remained level headed under pressure and reacted well to false claims. I have recommended Kevin to others.

Satisfied With Outcome
Kevin represented us as defendants in a real estate suit. He was experienced and knew exactly how to react to every action taken by the plaintiffs. Kevin was easily accessible and very good about returning calls/emails within a reasonable amount of time.

Committed attorney
Mr. Cavanaugh has guided me through several cases, giving expert advise and researching case law to get the best outsides for me. He has integrity and truly cares about his clients. I highly recommend him.

A man of his word
I used Mr. Cavanaugh for a recent traffic court action. He made it clear the disadvantages of "going it alone", and I must say there was a lot less anxiety knowing a professional had my back. He was very good at keeping me informed. I always knew what was going on. We achieved a favorable outcome, and I would likely use Mr Cavanaugh again if the need arises.

I have worked in the same office with Kevin, and have also worked with him on many of his domestic relations cases. Kevin maintains the highest ethical and work standards. He is always diligent, responsive to his clients' needs, and an excellent litigator. I would recommend Kevin without hesitation.

I am an attorney in Olathe, Kansas. Kevin and I battled it out on a very difficult child custody matter a few years ago. Kevin took my client's deposition and fought valiantly for his client. He was as tough an adversary as I can remember battling with in a long time. He did an excellent job and I plan to refer business to him in the future. He is an excellent litigator and very intelligent and tireless.

trustworthy and competent lawyer
We used Kevin Cavanaugh's services several times. Not only he listened to all our concerns and questions, he provided valuable information and assistance in getting our matters resolved. Kevin took time to answer even in the weekends and sometimes late night understanding that sometimes we ca n all get really busy and reminding us when we were close to miss something. We really felt out interests were taken at heart, our privacy respected and that we were really well and professionally represented. We would recommend him in a heart beat.

I really wanted to give him a better mark
Kevin started out strong but quickly withered extremely fast. He was not capable of handling an opposing high conflict divorce attorney that had less experience than him. He couldn't negotiate with her of influence the Court to follow basic custody guidelines in divorce cases. He was ill-prepared with details to present to a court during a conference call. Kevin also let a motion go into default by not responding on time which eventually had an extremely negative affect on my son's time with me. I want to give him a fair rating because he was able to help me file for divorce but everything went downhill fast and he could not offer solutions to balance out any conflict or legal issue.

Response from Kevin Cavanaugh January 2, 2016
No one has expressed dissatisfaction to me of anything near the magnitude of this complaint. I do not know who this person is but I doubt if this person was ever a client of mine. It looks like there may be some other motive at work here. Perhaps the opposing party of one of my current or former clients. It goes against the usual level of satisfaction my clients typically express to me.
