Kevin A. Lipeles

Law Office of Kevin A. Lipeles is not like your run of the mill law firm. Unlike most lawyers, Kevin did not go straight to College. Kevin went to work, so he understands what it is like in the real world. The Law Office of Kevin A. Lipeles prides itself on thinking outside the box, being aggressive yet cost effective, and being fully prepared to aggressively litigate when necessary, but also being ready to skillfully negotiate when necessary. Kevin has managed a retail business, negotiated a collective bargaining agreement and opened a full service union labor restaurant, and served as co-manager representing professional prize fighters and has managed several boxers into high profile fights including world championship fights. It is for that reason that Kevin understands his clients concerns, and can relate to their situation and why Kevin's number one goal is to make his clients legal issues become as stress free as possible. Kevin enjoys interacting with each and every one of his clients, and understanding their concerns, so that he can better help get them through a hard time in their lives.
