Helpful phone consultation
I reached out to Kevin for advice on a car accident case. Material damages but no injuries, so other attorneys won’t return my calls. Over a brief phone conversation, Kevin spoke to the possible next steps. Thank you Kevin for your help.

Exceptional
Mr Sullivan took the time to listen and give valuable advise re a complexed case involving the Administrative Appeals Process re the discontinuation of Protective Supervision in an IHSS. He was able to negotiate a conditional withdrawal in my favor. He was able to obtain the reinstatement of Protective Supervision with retroactive back pay.

Great consultative call.
Over a brief call, Kevin put me at ease for what common practices are ... eased my concerns about settling a debt from a jerky collector with a vague settlement letter.

Most Personable Attorney I Have Ever Interacted With!
My family and I have been extremely stressed over an unexpected debt collection lawsuit; we didn't know where to even start. After contacting numerous law firms, Kevin was highly recommended to us by a different attorney. I was nervous when I first contacted Kevin but he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and I was quickly put at ease! Kevin answered all of my questions and not once did he rush me off of the phone or put any time constraints to our conversation (like a couple other attorneys had). Thank you, Kevin, for the consultation and for sharing your extensive knowledge with me. Please don't look anywhere else, Kevin is the attorney you are looking for!

Would have been lost without him
With over 50 years of driving experience, I recently encountered my first significant accident. Throughout my life, I have never encountered a situation where legal assistance was necessary. However, when a new driver recklessly ran a red light and collided with my vehicle, I initially relied on the authorities and insurance companies to handle the matter appropriately. Regrettably, my trust was misplaced. Subsequently, as the situation took an unexpected turn due to the involvement of the young driver's parents and their insurance adjuster, my spouse and I recognized the need to engage legal representation. We are fortunate to have found Kevin S. Sullivan, who provided us with clear and concise explanations of the services he could offer. His efficient management of bills, communications, and negotiations alleviated much of our stress and granted us peace of mind. Without his invaluable assistance, navigating this situation would have been significantly more challenging. Notably, he advocated on my behalf when he discovered excessive charges from my chiropractor. Now I know the importance of seeking legal counsel when things like this happen. If you ever need this kind of help, I highly recommend that you call Kevin S. Sullivan.

Excellent Representation
I hired Mr Sullivan to represent me in a debt lawsuit. What I thought was going to be a nightmare turned out to be an offer to settle that was outstanding. He accomplished this in less than 30 days. I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan. He knows what he is doing does not sugar coat puts the bad in front of the good so no surprises.

Helped with creditor lawsuit.
I want to thank Kevin for helping settle a lawsuit from creditors. He was reassuring and helped my mom and me get a piece of mind. Thanks to him we were able to settle for less and that was a big financial help. Highly recommend him!

Quick win!
Kevin helped me get a case dismissed quickly. I was being sued for an auto accident that I wasn't involved in, but making the other attorneys understand the fairly complicated circumstances could have been challenging. Kevin did so without needing to go to court. He was easy to correspond with, and we did everything via calls and emails. His rates were reasonable, which was important since the lawsuit was for a relatively small amount of damages anyway.

Positive Experience re: Debt Collections
Kevin Sullivan was very helpful in legally representing me in settlement of a debt collections summons. He explained things in detail and was prompt in his responses, as well as reaching a settlement with the plaintiff for half(!) of the original demanded amount. Highly recommend Kevin!

Superb Lawyer who is honest and cares.
Caring, honesty, and understanding were the traits I wanted in a lawyer to help with my debt settlement case. I retained Kevin Sullivan to guide, advise and represent me- he provided top-notch service that exceeded my expectations. From the initial phone call, Kevin was honest with me and very sympathetic to my situation. His advice and recommendations resonated with me and made me feel comfortable with having him represent me. Kevin informed me every step of the way as he negotiated and ultimately settled my situation to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Kevin--a knowledgeable lawyer with a good heart!

Highly recommend Kevin!
I was referred to Kevin Sullivan from work. Kevin is courteous, professional and quick to respond. He helped me with a debt consolidation case and was able to resolve it quickly and for a fraction of what I owed. I appreciate that he was upfront and honest with his legal capabilities in setting my expectations accordingly. I would highly recommend family and friends for any legal services with Kevin.
