Kevin’s legal practice involves representing employers in legal issues that arise in the workplace.  He has tried cases and argued appeals not only in Illinois but also across the country.  His wall is emblazoned with a framed quote from Cicero: “the aim of forensic oratory is to teach, to delight, to move.” He began teaching at Loyola in 1977 and has returned after 7 years (2007-2014) teaching and coaching at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School.
