More About Kevin Hickey, Attorney at Law

Kevin Hickey is known as a fair, yet aggressive, attorney. His method in any legal matter is to always seek a peaceful settlement and only use the court system as a last resort. Clients say Kevin’s integrity, persistence, attention to detail, and excellent communication are strengths that make him an excellent choice for a divorce lawyer. “Clients want a solution, not an extended and expensive legal battle – if you can reach a resolution without involving the courts, it is better for everyone concerned. However, if going to court is the only answer, then you have to be aggressive.”
