A Great Attorney, One of the Best in New Orleans
Kevin is an all-around great attorney. He's knowledgeable about the law and always honest and straightforward. He works hard to help his clients and treats them like human beings rather than cattle being herded through the system. Smart, creative and personable, he's the best attorney in the area I've worked with and the only one I would recommend without any reservations.

Unprofessional, not trust worthy
I went to Mr. Gipson for a consultation, and after listening he promised that he is able to assist me and resolve a dispute , he took some notes sat with me less than 5 minutes and gave me the impression that he is an expert and my Dispute will be handled quickly as he already have an established relation with the other party and he was able to reach agreements and solve the dispute, Limited on funds he accepted a down payment and I was suppose to hear back from him the next day. What do you know didn’t hear from him, had trouble reaching his office and when I decided to drive to the office he wasn’t here , didn’t call me back .once I connected with him on the phone he said that he couldn’t help me. I am not sure if he attempted . My judgement was that he accepted my payment and never supplied me with even a letter to show he attempted to solve my dispute. I had to give him a star to complete my review but if they a(-) stat he definitely earned it

Response from Kevin Gipson August 29, 2020
Dear Reviewer: I do not recall any case that matches this description, but I will say at the outset that if you would like to contact me to discuss this matter I would be happy to discuss it with you. My office number is (504) 368-4101. My email address is [email protected] However, I must state that I have never conducted a consultation that took less than 5 minutes. My average consultation is usually an hour. It would simply be impossible to even obtain basic contact information from a potential client in a 5 minute meeting, let alone discuss your legal matter and advise you as to my thoughts as to what I could do to assist you, or any potential client with a legal matter.
