Q. How do you know this lawyer?
  • Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague
  • Friend

I have known Kevin since he graduated from law school and began his career working in the same firm that I was a law clerk for at the time, and now in which I belong to and practice alongside with him.

Q. In the cases you were involved in with this attorney, which of the following apply?
  • Same Client

Many, many serious criminal cases over the years. Kevin and I have "co-counseled" cases together in all levels of the trial courts in Mississippi, from bench trials in Justice & Municipal Courts, to jury trials in Circuit Courts.

Q. When did you work with this lawyer?
2005-present.
Q. Was this lawyer an effective advocate/counselor and why?
Yes

Kevin is very experienced in his advocacy for clients due to education, training, courtroom experience, and a natural ability of quickly building rapport with people.

His level of knowledge of the law is impressive and outstanding. Daily, as a routine, I know that he conducts additional research & reading to enhance his overall skills.

Legal Analysis: Excellent

Kevin's performance in analyzing legal problems, issues, and questions & answers is exemplary.

Communication Skills: Excellent

He regularly explains the complexities of cases in "legal terms" to other lawyers and judges, but at the same time, Kevin is able to communicate those same things in "ordinary terms" to clients and others who aren't formally trained in the law.

Ethics and Professionalism: Excellent

Although I belong to the same firm as Kevin, I am confident that anyone who has ever hired Kevin, any opposing lawyers (namely, prosecutors) who have ever had cases against him, judges, court clerks, etc., will agree with my assessment that Kevin conducts his business and performs - personally and professionally - with the highest level of excellence.
