Kevin Flynn | Hayward Divorce & Family Law Lawyer
Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire
Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
My client and I prevailed in a contested custody case at trial based on excellent pre-trial preparation which led to a cross-examination of the opposing party which the court cited as the key to the court’s decision to overrule the recommendation of the custody evaluator and award custody to my client. The pre-trial work also led to the court dismissing the opposing parties claims that separate property funds were used to buy the family home and should be reimbursed to the opposing party. That claim was rejected by the court.
How did you build a successful practice?
Hard work, diligence in working cases and responding to clients, honesty in dealing with clients which includes sometimes telling people what they don’t want to hear but need to .
What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Firm advocacy, backed up by preparation, responsiveness to the client, which includes realistic expectations and never any guarantees except my hard work.
How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
