Amazing. Committed. Determined.
Kevin is very thorough, and determined to get things done. He expedited the process of my case very efficiently. He is very smart and if you are having an issue with any university/college in Oregon, he is your man. He is trustworthy and dependable, I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. Very pleased!

Amazing dedication and understanding.
This attorney has been professional and understanding from the start. He has empathy and is one of the few attorneys that seem to really care about a client's issues. He is very knowledgeable and has always been helpful whenever we needed it. He seems to care more about the issues at hand rather then how much money he can get up front from us. But what puts him above all other lawyers is his constant communication and effort towards a case. He has also been very accommodating in regards to our financial limitations and expectations. I personally have worked with lawyers that have charged a great deal and have gotten very little done; Kevin is the opposite. He is currently working on two cases for us and we would definitely recommend him to our friends and family.

Doesn’t fight for anyone but his wallet
He is a money grabber waisted years on our case never returned calls barely spoke to us other than to get us to sign his, I get this much form, then when the case got hard and he saw he may have to do work and not get an easy paycheck he bailed.

Bad attitude.
I hired him for me and my daughter's school issue. He dropped off our case without reason after 180days (State Claim period done) He did not sent any letter and suddenly dropped off. We were stuggled. He just sent tort claim to only school district. It is weird. I would say highly not recommend.
Response from Kevin Brague June 14, 2022
I disagree with these statements, but the Rules of Professional Conduct prohibit me from discussing a former client's confidential matters.

"I endorse this lawyer."
Education Attorney | Dec 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I cannot recommend Kevin highly enough. I respect him as a peer, admire him as a colleague, and am honored to call him a friend. When I had questions about my son's rights in his charter school, I was referred to Kevin by another attorney who was equally impressed with Kevin's work. Kevin answered my questions and I can say with confidence that in this area of law he is unparalleled. I hope I never need his services, but if so I would not trust anyone else with my own case."

"I endorse Kevin as a great attorney who I have had the privilege to work with at various times over the past several years. Kevin is highly knowledgeable and always operates with the highest level of integrity."
