Kevin Colquitt
ABOUT

Kevin thrives on the challenge of complex civil litigation. Kevin has represented plaintiffs in cases against dozens of Fortune 500 companies, including pharmaceutical and medical device companies, international banks, and major defense contractors. “One of the keys to a successful civil suit is finding a way to piece together the facts and the law in such a way that best presents the client’s case,” says Kevin. “I love cracking this puzzle.”

Before practicing law, Kevin spent over a decade working in the medical device industry. Kevin’s real world experience has given him a practical understanding of how large businesses operate. And Kevin believes understanding an opponent’s strengths and weaknesses is critical to the successful outcome of any litigation.

While in law school, Kevin himself filed a whistleblower lawsuit under the False Claims Act. He devoted himself to studying whistleblower law, but he also learned what the law means from the inside in his role as a “relator”—or whistleblower. “Being a party to lawsuit can be mentally taxing and emotionally draining,” says Kevin. “I believe my experience as both a lawyer and a plaintiff has helped me better empathize with my clients and guide them through the litigation process.”
