Kevin provides problem-solving and decisive litigation results for commercial real estate owners, investors, developers, secured lenders, borrowers / guarantors, and business owners. He focuses on disputes involving:
- Real Estate (purchase & sale, option, development & disposition, lease, easements, use restrictions)
- Secured Lending (borrower/guarantor liability, foreclosure, one action rule, anti-deficiency, liens and lien priority, receivership, deed of trust and title issues)
- Business (corporate, partnership, and LLC rights and duties, contracts, fraud, dissolution & buyout, trade secrets, alter ego liability)
Deep Trial and Arbitration Experience
Courtroom experience sets Kevin apart. For 17 years he has focused almost entirely on litigation and dispute resolution. He won his first trial a day after he was sworn in as an attorney, won his first appeal three years later, and has served as lead counsel in trial, appeal, and arbitration proceedings ever since.
Kevin’s experience allows him to effectively "diagnose" risks for clients and help them avoid unfavorable outcomes, settle disputes quickly and favorably, or if necessary (and sometimes it is) win at trial and appeal.
Business objectives always drive his strategy. He aims to safeguard any client rights or revenue streams that come under attack, with a budget that's right-sized for the case.
Appellate Remedies For “Broken” Cases
Kevin has earned a reputation for repairing cases that have suffered unfortunate results at the trial court level. He is frequently retained as appellate counsel to get unfavorable lower court rulings reversed at the court of appeal.
