Kevin has been litigating personal injury cases in Nevada for over 10 years. He has extensive experience working for and against insurance companies, and he uses that experience and knowledge every day to help injured clients. Kevin spent many years defending the insurance companies in all litigation matters, including car accidents,[internal link] slip and falls,[internal link] and medical malpractice cases. Tired and frustrated with working hard to help insurance companies save money, Kevin was passionate and intent to help injured clients instead of the insurance companies. Now, Kevin is proud and driven to fight for clients to achieve fair resolution of their cases and to get them the help that they deserve. Every day Kevin uses the knowledge and experience he gained from defending the insurance companies to beat them at their own game, and fights hard to protect the rights of his clients.
Originally from Southern California, Kevin came to Las Vegas upon completing law school in 2005, and has represented both plaintiffs and defendants during his time in Nevada. Kevin grew up in Riverside, California, and moved to the Reno, Nevada area when he was 14 years of age. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, with a minor in Spanish from the University of Nevada, Reno, in 2002. Kevin attended the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California, and received his J.D. degree in 2005. While in law school, Kevin performed an externship with now Nevada Supreme Court Justice, the Honorable James W. Hardesty. After graduating law school, he passed the July 2005, Nevada State Bar, and was admitted to practice at that time. He is also admitted to practice law before all Nevada State courts and Federal courts. Following law school, Kevin clerked for the Honorable Jessie Walsh in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada (in Las Vegas).
Following his clerkship, Kevin worked for many years at multi-state law firms defending physicians and hospitals in medical malpractice cases. He gained valuable experience in understanding the complexities of litigation, as well as learning medical knowledge related to personal injuries. In working with the numerous insurance carriers in those cases, Kevin was able to develop necessary negotiation skills and techniques, which he continues to use now in representing injured clients. Additionally, Kevin learned the way that insurance companies think, negotiate, and how they prepare cases to be defended. Following his time representing physicians and hospitals in medical malpractice matters, Kevin defended insurance companies in personal injury matters. From this experience he gained insight into the way that insurance companies defend auto accident and other personal injury cases.
Kevin now dedicates his time and experience to representing individual injury victims. Using his knowledge and experience that he learned defending insurance companies, he is better able to position and prepare cases for maximum settlement or trial verdicts. He approaches each case with the knowledge he has gained in his previous work and a motivation to obtain the most favorable result for his clients. He has represented previous clients at trial, arbitration, and all other phases of litigation. This experience allows him to efficiently and effectively work cases from beginning to end.
When he is not working, Kevin enjoys spending time with his family, watching Angels baseball games, playing poker, playing video games, reading, and spending time with his dogs. He appreciates the importance of these activities in his own life, and understands how devastating it can be to lose the things that are important to you to injury. Consequently, he is able to effectively represent clients whose daily lives have been broken or complicated due to injuries caused by someone else. While such things may be difficult or impossible to replace, Kevin focuses his work in each case on getting his clients what they deserve.
