Kevin has had a strong sense of community and service since he was a child. Immediately upon graduating from high school, Kevin joined the Army and served with distinction. Kevin is a decorated war veteran who served his country as a reconnaissance soldier in the United States Army. This service included guarding the borders of Europe, functioning as a liberator in the Persian Gulf War, and acting as a humanitarian in Operation Provide Comfort for Kurdish Refugees in Turkey and Iraq. As a result of his service, Kevin was awarded 10 medals.
After being Honorably Discharged from the Army, Kevin immediately enrolled in college while continuing his service to community by devoting his time on the Board of Directors for a youth counseling organization that provided assistance to at-risk, low income children, youth and their families. Kevin also dedicated countless hours to helping victims of domestic violence and trained at risk students in conflict resolution. This focus and dedication earned him a Juris Doctor Degree as well as a Certificate of Distinguished Public Service. As a student Kevin was an extern for the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the Community Legal Aid Office.
After law school Kevin became a legal consultant for a major government development agency that specialized in multi-family housing and homeownership. After leaving the public sector, Kevin entered the private sector as In-House Counsel for a large Property Management Company and handled Employment Law issues, Landlord/Tenant Law, and Business Litigation issues.
As an attorney, Kevin believes that all people, regardless of income level, should be afforded competent legal representation. To help those that cannot afford representation, Kevin has incorporated the frequent use of his legal skills to go into the community to provide pro bono legal services. Kevin also takes the time to visit subsidized housing communities to encourage disadvantaged youth to enter the legal profession and to return the knowledge gained back to their community. Kevin currently serves the community by sitting on the Board of the Houston Metropolitan Dance Company, serving as President of the Houston Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Alumni, and a member of the Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children Association.
Kevin has been a guest speaker for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the National Association of Redevelopment Officials, and the American Bar Association Regional Fall Leadership Summit.
He is a member of the Texas State Bar Sections on Real Estate, Probate & Trust Law; Labor & Employment Law; Health Law; Business Law; Construction Law; and Criminal Justice.
Kevin is also a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas which is an “honorary society of lawyers who are among the best trained attorneys in Texas.
