"I strive to provide solutions to complex legal issues with practicality, common sense, and integrity."



A former SRC, Inc., senior contract negotiator and solo practitioner, Kevin primarily concentrates his practice on real estate and lending, handling and negotiating real estate acquisitions, sale transactions, and financing for an array of clients. He has extensive experience handling commercial leasing negotiations and provides support in connection with real estate matters involving easements and title research. As examining counsel to title insurance companies, Kevin also analyzes and examines real estate titles. He additionally focuses on executing commercial loan transactions for a federal credit union.

Kevin advises companies who do business with the federal government, the US Department of Defense, prime contractors, subcontractors, and foreign governments to understand and comply with the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Defense Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS).

Kevin also advises companies on US export-control laws and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to analyze if the sale of a particular product to a foreign government or international company requires a DSP-5 export license or if a commodity jurisdiction request to the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls is warranted.
