Kevin is reasonable and persistent. He counsels clients to choose legal battles carefully and works to create and keep positive working relationships with co- and opposing counsel. Mindful of judicial resources from his time externing with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Kevin works with his team to gameplan for the entire case at the start of the case and readjusts confidently and quickly when appropriate.

Kevin has consistently helped individuals pursue justice at all levels of the judicial system. Kevin’s represented laborers across Pennsylvania before workers’ compensation judges. He’s tried § 1983 cases for inmates seeking adequate medical care. He’s represented groups of consumers and individuals with disabilities in litigation across the country.

Kevin co-founded East End Trial Group in 2020 with his good friend and partner, Kevin Abramowicz. Today, he has a diverse practice centering on consumer protection, privacy, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. His contributions to these fields have been recognized by the judiciary, bar, and community.

In 2022, Judge Conti of the Western District of Pennsylvania appointed Kevin to a leadership position In Re: Philips Recalled CPAP, Bi-Level PAP, and Mechanical Ventilator Products Litigation, MDL 3014, Doc. 395 (W.D. Pa.). Following this appointment, the Leadership Development Committee voted Kevin to serve as Co-Chair.

During a final fairness hearing in 2023, one opposing counsel noted:

Your Honor, in my 36 years of practice, I think I can say that this is probably the only time I’ve said this on the record: I can think of few attorneys that represent the ideals of what it means to be an attorney and counselor of law and to uphold the standards of what it means to be a member of this bar than plaintiff’s counsel. We litigated this case over a period of many years. And, again, they understand how to disagree without being disagreeable. And I think that their clients have been very, very well-represented by them.

Douglass v. Mondelēz Global LLC, No. 2:22-cv-00875, H’rg Tr., 14-15 (W.D. Pa. Sept. 19, 2023).

In 2023, Kevin received the ACHIEVA Award of Excellence in Legal Services, recognizing his “extraordinary efforts on behalf of people with disabilities and their families.”
