Biography

After graduating from the Emory University School of Law, Kevin established a reputation based on high-profile courtroom experience. During his first three years of practice, he successfully defended a Georgia-based national firm against the Trump organization in Donald J. Trump v. Positive Concepts, Ltd. He then represented Paulette Holyfield in Evander Holyfield's first divorce. These significant early cases established the direction of Kevin's unique practice, complex and high-profile civil litigation.

Highlights

As a partner at Schulten Ward Turner & Weiss, LLP, Kevin has represented clients in complex business and commercial cases from coast-to-coast. His recent work includes numerous commercial property disputes with total disputed values of several hundreds of millions of dollars in a number of states. Recent work includes patent infringement cases in Chicago and Atlanta with potential impact on billions of dollars of international annual trade, and disputes which will impact who will ultimately lead the commercial development of Jekyll Island. He also represented over 150 witnesses in U.S. v. Kaplan, the infamous "Gold Club" trial, defended the $39,000,000 Nemnon v. Conti dispute in the Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York, and the $78,000,000 case of Mitsubishi v. Cardinal Textiles.

Family Law and Non-Commercial Highlights

In the past five years alone, Kevin has handled numerous family law cases involving marital estates greater than $10 Million. Additionally, he has represented gold and platinum selling musical artists, NFL and MLB players (and spouses in other instances), as well as media personalities. Despite their current fame, the names of these individuals do not appear here in consideration of their privacy. Kevin's representation of these individuals includes not only family law, but defense and prosecution of civil matters. Kevin was also defense counsel in the civil trial of a "shaken baby" case, which was featured on Court T.V., successfully obtaining a jury verdict against the parent that wrongfully accused a day care owner of harming a child in her custody.

Some of Kevin's family law cases have been featured in the respected legal newspaper The Fulton Daily Report, under the headlines: "Winning Lottery Made Ex-Hubby Unlucky at Support Hearings" and "Ex-Gold Club Dancer Wins Child Support."

In his youth, Kevin lived in Beirut, Lebanon for ten years, where his father pursued a profession as an archeologist, scholar and professor. Kevin says,"Years of watching a country at war helped to make me appreciate the benefits of our legal system and to understand that no matter what the opponent tries to throw at me, I have endured worse and triumphed."

Kevin is a trial lawyer who excels in diversity of practice. His success is based on diligent preparation and the goal of his trial work is to win with the truth and the law.
