Kevin V. Mincey
Kevin V. Mincey is a purebred trial lawyer. While the strategy he employs in each case is often what gains attention, for Kevin, it’s the people he’s working for that matter most. He approaches each case as a unique opportunity to right a wrong and improve a family’s future circumstances.
Simply put, standing up for individual rights is what motivates him. Case by case, over the course of many noteworthy trials and settlements, Mr. Mincey has built a reputation for out-preparing his opponents and finding new ways to effectively try or mediate a case.
In a case that pitted his client against the Philadelphia Police Department, Mr. Mincey’s inquisitive and assertive nature made the difference in obtaining a victory for his client. On the night in question, the Philadelphia Police Department asserted that the use of physical force was necessary to subdue two defendants following a dispute at a popular bowling alley. In court and in all of the police documentation of the incident, the officers made no mention of video surveillance of the incident being recovered by police—thus putting their word against the client’s. Mr. Mincey was not satisfied with this explanation and decided to visit the bowling alley where the altercation occurred. He quickly realized that there were video cameras spread throughout the building and became curious as to why there was no videotape to review. Further investigation revealed that the police department not only knew about the video, but also had it in their possession. The judge dismissed the case and a settlement was later awarded to Mr. Mincey’s client. READ MORE…
