Kevin joined PLS as a staff attorney in the Family Matters Unit in 2022 due to his belief that all people matter and their lives have value, and because he values parent-child relationships. Before becoming a staff attorney, Kevin interned at the Schenectady County Public Defender’s Office, The Justice Center at Albany Law School in the Family Violence Litigation Clinic, and Empire Justice Center. Kevin graduated from Albany Law School where he focused his studies on criminal law and social justice. Prior to law school, Kevin earned an MTS at Drew Theological School and worked in the nonprofit sector in New York and Boston. Kevin’s decision to attend law school was motivated in large part by his experience advocating for LGBTQ+ rights and confronting gender discrimination and sexual abuse in the judicial system of The United Methodist Church.
