Kevin is a Partner of Samis+Company. Throughout his career, he has practiced almost exclusively in the area of accident benefit and bodily injury matters arising from motor vehicle accidents.

He has argued many such hearings including arbitration, both private and at the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (including the Director`s Delegate), the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal, various Superior Court appeals and the Ontario Court of Appeal. Kevin is a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada, the Canadian Bar Association, Canadian Defence Lawyers, the Toronto Lawyers Association and the Defence Research Institute.
