Kevin moved to Colorado in 1978 with a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Texas and a desire to live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. As a high school student, he was third in the state of Texas in II-A competition in Number Sense, a math competition where the contestants must do the work in their head. Years of engineering and work on large business deals, while rewarding in their own way, weren’t quite enough, so he decided to go to law school.
After graduating from the University of Denver School of Law, Kevin went to work for a small criminal defense firm. In his first three years at that firm, he sat second chair defending two first degree murder trials, both of which resulted in acquittals. After that, he worked at a large general practice firm, and two family law firms and has worked as a solo practitioner.
As a Senior Associate Attorney, Kevin places a premium on solving the client’s problems. Like an engineer, the focus is on solving the problem and doing so with a reasonable cost-benefit to the client. That focus has enabled him to settle the vast majority of his cases. In more than three years prior to writing this biographical note, he’s only had three permanent orders trials, settling the others. He’s willing and able to try a case, but it’s frequently not the best thing for the client. Having a certain, manageable outcome and ending the brain damage associated with a massive conflict has huge value. Many clients, months after a tough day at mediation, have called to tell me how much better their life is after resolving their dispute.
