Hi, I'm Kevin

I'm Basically an Honest, Hardworking guy who loves to fight for Consumers.

 

I love giving a voice to people who can't seem to be heard in the COURTS and are at risk of having their rights pummeled by a big powerful and wealthy corporation. 

I take pride in helping out the little people of this world, I do not like bullies and I am not afraid to work hard and put it all on the line to get the right result.

On "Fight Day", I will be prepared...
