To confer this designation, Best Lawyers ® obtained substantive evaluations of Kevin's professional ability and quality of legal services from leading lawyers within the same geographic and practice area. His selection represents the consensus view of leading lawyers in this peer review process.
For over 35 years Kevin has engaged in a broad-based civil litigation practice, handling cases from intake through full appellate practice before the highest courts in New York State and the federal court system. These cases have included precedent-setting litigation in the fields of: general contract and commercial claims, health care, trademark, civil rights, Freedom of Information entitlements, personal injury, employment practices, securities and consumer fraud, tax, banking, education and construction.
In 2013 Kevin received "Lawyer of the Year" recognition as a Leader in Law by the Daily Record for his work in achieving a $25 million recovery in a decade-long civil rights claim against New York State Department of Health officials who illegally closed his client's nursing home.
