"My business is handling your business."
Hello, my name is Kevin Lemieux and I am an experienced trial attorney in San Diego. After 15 years of working at law firms, I decided to open my own practice in January of 2018. My firm is dedicated to helping families! I practice in a limited number of areas, but everything relates back to helping people and their families. My main areas of practice are:
Criminal Defense (including DUI and traffic); and
Juvenile Law (CPS Cases--I am a Certified Specialist in child welfare law).
I've helped hundreds of families and individuals navigate the court system and plan for their future. I have literally tried hundreds of cases in a time when most lawyers have never had a single trial. Having this experience, and working for myself, allows me to "pick and choose" the types of cases that I want to handle. Because of that, I can focus all of my energy, time, and expertise on my clients and their cases. Helping you and your family is my privilege.
I am also a teacher of trial skills and trial practice; I plan and lead seminars for lawyers who want to improve their in-court performance. I'm certified by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) as a trial skills instructor, where I am also a faculty member. I am also a lead faculty member for the Juvenile Law Society and Advocacy Training Center. Having the ability to teach and mentor other lawyers has really helped me focus on my own passion for trial work. Helping a lawyer succeed on their case is just as satisfying as helping my own clients directly. I am very thankful for the opportunities I have to teach these lawyers.
