About me

I have been in practice since 1991.  The overwhelming majority of new clients are referred to me by my former clients.  I work in the areas of Family Law, Mediations, Collaborative Law, Personal Injury, and other trial work.

I am well-trained and experience Mediator and Collaborative Lawyer working to help individuals resolve their dispute without going to court.  For more information about mediation or colloborative law go to

I encourage straight talk and honest assessments.  I do not work with people who will not put their children first, I believe every person is entitlted to understand the law and ther options, and I believe that with honest hard work all things all possible.

I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association, Pierce County Collaborative Pracitce, Washington Collaborative Practice, and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.  I am active in the community in which my family resides.  I was divorced myself and have three children with whom I  stay very active in their lives in addition to running my law practice. 


All emails are returned as soon as possible.  I encourage you to send me a message.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • John Stocks

    I endorse this lawyer because he is brilliant, quick-witted, and experienced. He comes to court with the triple-threat of (a) compassion and bed-side manner with clients, (b) prepared on the law and facts, and (c) a polished demeanor with the Judges.

  • Andrew J Makar

    I endorse this lawyer. Kevin and I worked together on a a very difficult case. I found him professional and reasonable. He did Not engage in unproductive legal maneuvering as that drive up costs but contribute nothing to resolution.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Reprimand
    issued in WA, 2013


    This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

    Kevin’s comment: “You can see the context of this reprimand at the WSBA website. The attorney is in good standing with the Washington State Bar Association and has been practicing law with excellent client reviews since 1991.”
