Kevin Weis has continuously represented since 1999 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, and to protect innocent people from such dangers, and to ensure his clients are treated with dignity and respect from the powerful and well-funded adversaries 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. Currently, he is a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, Louisville Bar Association, Kentucky Justice Association, and American Association for Justice. He has served on the KJA Board of Governors for the past seven years having been voted to that position by election of other members, is the co-chair of KJA’s Membership Committee, and serves on several other committees. He is also active in AAJ where he serves on multiple committees as well. Kevin is an active speaker with the EndDD.org/End Distracted Driving organization. He has served on Bellarmine University’s Alumni Board of Directors for many years 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.
Kevin is married to his dear wife of 24 years, Jane, a hospital social worker, and has two adult daughters, Tori and Mallorie, who are practicing nurses in Kentucky. In his leisure time he enjoys live music leaning to the hard and heavy side every chance he gets, boating on Kentucky’s beautiful waterways, cooking, and supporting University of Louisville athletics. And perhaps one day soon, his grandchildren.
