Attorney Profile

Since joining Flahavan Law Offices in 2013, Kevin Flahavan has come to be viewed by his peers and clients as a capable and highly respected plaintiff's personal injury attorney. His success in the courtroom and at the negotiating table is a reflection of both his care for his clients and his commitment to the ethics of his profession. This dedication has lead to large verdicts and settlements, among these are verdicts and/or settlements resulting in over $12 MILLION dollars in just the last three years. From his office in Westlake Village, California, he assists individuals throughout Ventura County and Los Angeles County who have been harmed by the negligence of others in motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, defective products, dog bites, professional malpractice and other areas relating to personal injury.

In just a few years of practice, Mr. Flahavan has been able to earn the respect of his colleagues, as evidenced by a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. Mr. Flahavan's reviews by his clients set him apart from nearly every attorney in Southern California. He has contributed several entries to The Rutter Group California Practice Guide: Personal Injury, a treatise that covers in-detail several causes of action as well as the procedural steps that are involved in this practice area. In addition, he was selected to the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Southern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. 

Mr. Flahavan is an active participant in a variety of professional organizations, including serving on the Ventura County Trial Lawyers Association Board of Directors. He is also a member of Jerome H. Benson Inns of Court, Ventura County Bar Association, Ventura County Barristers, Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Ventura County Bar Association. 

As the son of well-known personal injury attorney and author William F. Flahavan, and the god-son Tom Girardi, perhaps the most famous trial attorney in the country, Kevin Flahavan was born to be a personal injury attorney. Moreover, in just 6 years of practicing, he has already built a resume filled with achievements that most attorneys won't obtain in a lifetime. He is truly someone that clients love and insurance companies hate to see in the courtroom. 

You can't go wrong hiring this attorney and its clear he's only just getting started.
