    While Kevin’s practice has always been based out of Orlando, FL, he has defended cases in nearly every county in Florida and obtained defense verdicts at trial in multiple counties throughout the state during his career.  Kevin has been a frequent lecturer on a variety of litigation issues, including Developments in Florida Medical Malpractice, Automobile Liability/PIP Case Law Update, Medical Peer Review and Amendment 7, Food-Borne Illness Litigation, Duty Owed by a Health Care Provider, Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring and Tracing Litigation, and Florida Defamation Case Law Update.
