Kevin knew he wanted to be a lawyer at the age of 12 when his uncle became a quadriplegic after a commercial fishing accident in the Berring Sea due to the negligence of others.  Originally from the small fishing town of Blaine, Kevin went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington before graduating with honors from Seattle University School of law.  Kevin joined PCVA in 2011 after a two-year judicial law clerkship with the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division Two.  Kevin loves spending time outdoors with his family, skiing, mountain biking, hunting, and fishing.
