In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, skiing, traveling and playing cards.  In high school, I spent a year in Italy as a foreign exchange student.  I am fluent in Italian and proficient in French. 

 

I began practicing law in California in 2009.  I briefly worked in house for a large transportation company.  I then moved to Madera, CA to start an association with another local attorney.  On January 1, 2012, I moved my office to Fresno, CA and opened up my own practice.  I currently work as a solo practitioner, representing clients in employment, and labor law matters.

Best Labor Law Attorney
When we began our search for the best wrongful termination attorney, we interviewed just about every employment lawyer in Fresno. Several agreed to take the case on a contingent basis. We had the choice of one of the most well-known big firms in Fresno or Kevin Schwinn. After a 2 hour conversation with Kevin on the phone, we knew that he was the best attorney for us. A little over a year later and a settlement check on its way, we know that we made the right choice. Kevin displayed in-depth knowledge of labor law and, in particular, understood the intricasies of a case pertaining to transportation. What impressed us most, however, was his passion for seeking justice. It wasn't just another case to him; buy rather a cause to right a wrong. His heart convinced us to hire him for our fight. Throughout the year, he maintained his professionalism, and the highest degree of ethics. Whenever we had a question, doubt, or anxiety attack, he was available to us. He could make his own decisions without consulting managing partners or senior attorneys. Yet, he also had contacts within the legal community that he could consult for additional input. Kevin proved to be an excellent negotiator. He knew when to press the opposing counsel to their limit without pushing them over the edge. His intuitive sense, along with his ability to establish credibility and rapport with the other lawyers, contributed to our success in achieving a settlement. We believe that Kevin could face any big name lawyer with success because of his unique combination of intellect and heart. We highly recommend him and would choose him again to represent us without hesitation.
