QDRO and Devorce consultation
Kevin was referred to me by my Employee Assistance Program. Kevin was very easy to talk with and was available immediately. I ended up not using Kevin due to the fact that I work for the federal government so he referred me to a lawyer that deals with government 401k's regularly. I called Kevin for a follow up question and once again he was immediately available and was able to answer all my questions. If I need a lawyer in the future I will be using Kevin and I will be recommending him as well.

Kevin has been my attorney in my child custody case. I was a single Father and He is always Kind and professional. He genuinely cares about your family and keeping matters calm and focused. Kevin and his staff are always available to answer questions in a quick and informative manner.This is very important because things can be a bit overwhelming in these matters, because your Kids matter so much. If you want a person to represent you who is Wise, Compassionate and exceptionally Kind about your family child custody matters and will walk with you step by step,This is the Guy!

Great Lawyer!
Kevin is so great! He didn’t waste my time or money. He and Cindy are organized and thorough, and they know the law. It was such a great comfort to have Kevin in my corner throughout this process and I HIGHLY recommend him!!!

Excellent as a Divorce Attorney!
Kevin helped me when I ended up leaving another attorney that was just taking my money. He is extremely knowledgable and knows all the judges and other attorneys within the Orange County justice system. He is very easy to talk to and he explains things very well. He tells it exactly how it is, which is what I wanted. I wanted all the scenarios that could happen with the child custody. Kevin told me what could happen and though it didn't go exactly as I had planned, it was OK. My ex, at the end, ended up listening to Kevin also. I would recommend Kevin if you want someone who is knowledgable about divorce and child custody. He is very fair with his fees also. I wish I would have gone to Kevin at the beginning of the divorce. I'm sure I would still have alot of my money.

Phenomenal Attorney
I hired Kevin Qualls ten years ago to handle my divorce and child custody cases. He was able to resolve then both efficiently. Recently, I hired Mr. Qualls again to change the court order of child custody. He fought for my 12 year old son to have a child's interview with the courts. I feel this interview had great impact on the judges decision. Not many fathers are granted 90% custody, but Mr. Qualls made it happen. In addition, Mr. Qualls was able to erase any support I was paying to my ex-wife. Borth Mr. Qualls and his office staff respond quickly to phone calls and emails helping me feel assured that their service is "above and beyond". As a parent, I could not give a higher recommendation for Mr. Qualls services.

Best Family Law Attorney.
Mr. Kevin Qualls is the best lawyer I have had. He is not only a professional lawyer who knows what he is doing the best for his clients but he also has a heart of a friend whom you can trust. I had another lawyer before, which I lost my daughter, but with Mr. Qualls, I have now full custody. He is the best. There is no better in my opinion. I definitely recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney for family law court.

My best advocate for my divorce
I hired Mr. Qualls after interviewing 2 other lawyers for my divorce. He was amazing. He understood that a divorce might include an attempt at reconciliation, and was supportive and helpful to me during all the ups and downs of that crazy time called divorce. He and his paralegal, Cindy, were helpful and were accommodating to my needs even when I was too stressed to think clearly. He was my advocate in a difficult situation (my ex’s lawyer was making things so hard for me). I knew I could trust this team to do what was in my best interest. This knowledge decreased my stress every day. He even gave me resources for a tax consultant, and health insurance consultant. I am thrilled I hired Mr. Qualls and Cindy. I fully recommend him, and in fact have recommended him to a good friend.

Fair and Honest
I came to see Kevin Qualls after my divorce was finalized for advice on how to enforce child and spousal support. Kevin was beyond helpful! He carefully listened to my situation, reviewed my documents and gave me sound direction as to what my next step would be. He even recommended that I not retain his services at this point! It is rare to come across an individual that gives more in value than they receive in compensation. It was clear from our conversation that Kevin is familiar with all aspects of divorce and he is fair and honest.

Kevin Qualls is an exceptional attorney
Mr. Qualls has been on my case for well over a year now. He has always kept me informed and been very professional. Mr.Qualls has prevailed on every issue. He is smart and relaxed, which keep one calm in an emotional situation such as protecting the best interests of your child. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me.

Highly recommended – knowledgeable, trustworthy, and professional
Mr. Kevin Qualls is sharp as a whistle, knowledgeable, upfront about the challenges, and a tough negotiator. His advice was invaluable and negotiated a fair agreement with my ex’s attorney without going to trial. At a time when I could not think clearly, Mr. Qualls provided me with assurance that my child and personal finances were well represented. I recommend Mr. Kevin Qualls for anyone in need with family law. He is well respected in the Orange County legal community for his knowledge and experience. Take advantage of the free consultation and see for yourself.

Great family law attorney
I hired Mr. Qualls to assist me with my divorce. Even though my case was relatively simple with few assets, he was always accessible to me, answered my questions, easy to talk to and finished my case rather quickly. I know I wasn't his only client but at his office you are treated like you are the only client when your case is ongoing. I would recommend him to anyone and in fact he has now handled two of my friends' cases.
