Kevin Acevedo has ample experience as a trial lawyer, focusing principally in the areas of criminal law, personal injury, construction law, insurance law, civil rights and numerous commercial/business disputes (including contracts, intellectual property, franchise-franchisee relations, bankruptcy and maritime, among others). He also has experience in employment discrimination cases.

Mr. Acevedo is admitted to practice law in Texas and Puerto Rico, as well as numerous federal courts. Prior to joining The Gonzalez Law Group, he worked in the litigation department of a large, corporate law firm.

He served as an Adjunct Professor of the Inter-American University School of Law (2006-2009) where he lectured law students on subjects related to federal courts, trial and appellate practice. Upon graduating from law school he clerked for a U.S. District Judge and an Associate Justice of Puerto Rico’s Supreme Court.

Mr. Acevedo is fully bilingual (Spanish and English) and obtained his law degree from the University of Puerto Rico School of Law, where he served as a member of the Law Review, as Vice Editor-in-Chief, and worked as Research and Teaching Assistant to Professor at Law and former Law School Dean David M.
