Terrific Lawyer: Would Recommend and Hire Him Again
I hired Kevin to represent me in a legal matter involving a workplace issue. During the year he represented me in this matter he was terrific - always available to answer questions and guide me, offered the right legal advice for my case and never backed down against my employer in order to do what was right and legal for me. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer and if need be, I would hire him again in a heart beat to represent me. I really can't say enough good things about Kevin - he is one terrific lawyer.

Above and Beyond Expectations
Mr. Hubbard superbly handled my case which centered around workplace harassment and intimidation. His professional and attentive approach to my needs throughout the process of negotiation is the reason I am writing this review and would recommend his services to anyone. None of my concerns were too frivolous and he was able to easily adjust his strategy to suit my time-table. I am extremely happy with our arrangement and the outcome of my legal matter.

Outstanding legal help
Kevin and his team listened and asked great questions to understand my issue and handled it with great empathy and care. I always felt that they had my best interests at heart. When I called them they either answer right away or called back quickly - even emailed on weekends. Their guidance was valuable and helped me navigate very difficult circumstances. The outcome was in my favor and I was very satisfied with the results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kevin or the firm for any legal guidance / issue. They are professionals and care about their clients.
