What our clients say:
“I was devastated by the betrayal of an employee who had attempted to steal my list of customers prior to leaving our insurance agency. In my business, my sons are my partners and this business supports my family, sons, and grandchildren. This was the first time I needed a litigator and Kevin was recommended to me. He listened and told me everything is going to be okay. I watched Kevin in depositions; he was so kind and gentle to me but he methodically and aggressively tore down the defense of the former employee. Through his advocacy, Kevin was able to secure the return of my entire list of customers and in doing so, Kevin protected all of us, our 36 year business and gave us our livelihood back.” Elizabeth Schneider Managing Partner Wickford Insurance Agency Wickford, RI
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Chris on many occasions over the last 15 years. Chris’ versatility has proven time and again to be a great asset, having provided advice and counsel to my businesses on a wide variety of issues in various legal disciplines…litigation, contract negotiations, land use issues, interaction with governmental entities, administrative processes, and construction law, to name a few. Chris’ analytical skills allow him to identify a path to resolving issues quickly and concisely and his advocacy and negotiation skills get the desired end result. Chris is a top notch attorney, and I highly recommend him.”

Kevin represented us in a very complex insurance dispute and with his extensive knowledge of the law and aggressive representation, he was able to achieve a remarkable result on behalf of my company. He thinks outside of the box for solutions and had a complete understanding of our problem. In addition, he regularly called me during the entire process and kept me informed on his progress. Perhaps most importantly, he cares about your case and truly wants to help you. Since that time, Kevin has handled a wide variety of legal problems for me personally and for my company and not only do I continue to utilize his services but I recommend him without hesitation.

“My company retained Chris to defend it in a litigation matter. We had been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by a Rhode Island municipality to replace existing water meters and install an automated meter reading system. After we began work on the project we were faced with unanticipated state regulatory actions that threatened our ability to complete the contract. It was very important to us that we be able to move forward on the project. Chris adeptly navigated the political issues raised by our case and expertly guided us through the litigation process before the state agency and in the Superior Court. As a result of Chris’ efforts on our behalf we were able to successfully continue work on the project and complete the contract.”

Kevin became our lawyer even before we opened the first Siena Restaurant in 2005, having represented us in the acquisition of the property, and all of the legal obstacles that come along with opening a new business. Since that time, Kevin has handled all of our legal needs including the acquisition and opening of subsequent restaurants and has been integral in assisting us to grow our restaurant group to the size that it is today. Kevin takes ownership of all of the legal challenges that we face as if they were his own and this, combined with his wide range of legal knowledge and attention to detail, set him apart from most attorneys. We trust Kevin implicitly and have referred him to other friends, colleague’s friends, and family.

“My mom passed away unexpectedly when I was 11. I was too young to deal with many of the issues brought on by the circumstances. I needed someone to act in my best interest until I was mature enough to manage my own affairs. My family hired Chris to establish a guardianship on my behalf. Chris was able to safeguard monies that my mother had left for me; monies that were otherwise at risk. Thanks to his efforts, those assets were protected and preserved while I was afforded the opportunity to grow and mature. It is because of Chris’ hard work, advice and trustworthiness that I have a solid foundation from which I can move forward with my life.”
