Kevin recognizes the personal and professional importance of being involved in pro bono work. “There are important skills to develop. I am knowledgeable of the commercial real estate industry, but I don’t spend time in litigation defending my clients. I also learn how to communicate with different people. Pro bono clients typically don’t have the same awareness of the legal system, so it reinforces my ability to teach and communicate.”
Kevin’s most memorable case, a quiet title matter, took place in the beginning of the pandemic. As he prepared to file the complaint for adverse possession, the courts closed for months. This sudden change required constant communication between Kevin and the client. Throughout the process Kevin assured his client that he was working as hard as possible to help him obtain title to his home.
“I told him I care about this,” Kevin said. “I understand the stakes. When the litigation ended and he received a clean deed to his family, my client sent me a very nice thank you note. And it’s hanging up in my office, right next to my degrees, because it’s something I’m very proud of, the fact that I was able to use these superpowers for good.”
