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. For his entire career he has been a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, Louisville Bar Association, Kentucky Justice Association (KJA), and American Association for Justice (AAJ). 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”.  He is also active in AAJ where he serves on multiple committees as well, including as the co-chair of the First Year Engagement Committee. In 2023 he was selected by AAJ for the Roxanne Barton Conlin Certificate of Recognition.

In years past he has served on Bellarmine University’s Alumni Board of Directors including service on the Alumni Awards Committee. He was an Assistant Coach and Team Coordinator for the Louisville Male High School Girl’s Lacrosse Team and a coach in the Jeffersontown Youth Soccer League. He is also a multi-year recipient of Louisville Magazine’s Best Lawyers award in the area of Plaintiff’s Personal Injury Law, has been selected multiple times for recognition by Kentucky Super Lawyers, and in 2024 was recognized by Best Lawyers for personal injury litigation.

Kevin is married to his dear wife of over 27 years, Jane, a hospital social worker, and has two adult daughters, Tori and Mallorie, who are both licensed nurse practitioners. In his leisure time he enjoys live music every chance he gets (1000 concerts and counting), boating on Kentucky’s beautiful waterways, travel, cooking, and supporting University of Louisville athletics.
