Since 1999 Kevin Weis has continuously represented people seriously injured or killed as the result of negligent individuals and corporations in such areas as Motor Vehicle Negligence, Medical/Healthcare Negligence, Premises Liability (“slip and falls”), Products Liability, Dog Bites, Tractor Trailer Negligence, and General Negligence. His passion is to assist his clients in obtaining fair compensation for what has been lost and cannot be replaced, to hold wrongdoers accountable, to protect innocent people from such unreasonable hazards, and to ensure his clients are treated with dignity and respect from the powerful and well-funded adversaries those clients face in a time of stress and uncertainty.
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, after graduating from Saint Xavier High School in 1987, Kevin earned his Bachelor of Arts in Biology degree cum laude from Bellarmine University in 1991. He continued his education at Texas A & M University in College Station, Texas earning a Master of Science in Genetics in 1995. In 1999 Kevin obtained his Juris Doctorate from the University of Louisville Brandeis College of Law during which time he authored an article published in the school’s Brandeis Law Journal, formerly known as the Journal of Family Law. He is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Kentucky and occasionally obtains admission in other court jurisdictions for select cases.

He has served on the KJA Board of Governors for the past ten years having been voted to that position by election of other members, has for the past eight years been the co-chair of KJA’s Membership Committee, and has served on several other committees. In 2020 Kevin was honored with KJA’s “Outstanding Board Member Award”.
