Kevin is passionate about going to bat for workers who have been treated unfairly at work. His clients usually come to him after they have experienced discrimination, harassment, or other illegal employment practices, and are still trying to make sense of what happened to them. Most don’t know what their rights are or what recourse they might have. Kevin speaks with each client on a personal level and takes the time to fully understand their situation, so he can give his clients an honest case assessment and strategy to obtain the best possible outcome.
Kevin grew up in a middle-class family in Missouri, raised by two parents who worked hard for everything they had, and who also made sure Kevin understood the importance of hard work. Kevin made his way through high school, college, and law school working a variety of jobs, including as a roofer, a forklift operator, and a factory worker at the same automobile assembly plant where his dad worked for 28 years. These experiences instilled in him a deep respect and admiration for members of the “working class,” and inspired him to focus his law practice on protecting workers’ rights.
Kevin has been leveling the playing field for workers for nearly a decade, taking cases to trial when necessary to hold businesses accountable for their wrongful employment practices. Kevin recently obtained a jury verdict and judgment for over $1 million for a factory worker who was fired after being disciplined more harshly than younger employees. He was also trial counsel for a bakery worker who was defrauded by a trade school, where a jury returned a verdict in excess of $13 million for his client. Kevin successfully defended his clients’ verdicts on appeal and has argued numerous cases in state and federal appellate courts, including a state Supreme Court.
While Kevin is proud of the successful outcomes he has obtained for his clients, he believes the greatest measure of his success is his clients’ satisfaction with his services. That is why he stays personally involved in all aspects of his clients’ cases. When a client calls and leaves a message, he will return it. When a client emails, he will reply. He recognizes that the legal process may seem daunting at first, so he takes the time to explain the process and makes sure his clients are informed and prepared at each step.
Kevin is married to his high school sweetheart and they have four children. In his free time, Kevin enjoys coaching and watching his kids’ little league games, taking in concerts with his wife, and hunting with his old yellow lab, Winchester.
