Kevin is the Senior Partner and Chief Litigator of the Harris & Winger, P.C. Criminal Division. He has aggressively handled all types of criminal cases, ranging from simple traffic offenses to complex murder cases and everything in between. Throughout his career, Kevin has handled over 2,500 DUI cases, and vigorously defended each of his clients' rights.
Kevin was born in Mesa, Arizona. One of eight children, he graduated from Westwood High School in 1984. A passion for criminal defense led Kevin to earn a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in History from Northern Arizona University (the "Harvard of Flagstaff").
After traveling the world, Kevin then earned his Juris Doctorate from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, and began his career serving as a Deputy Public Defender in Yuma, Arizona. In this position, Kevin was challenged to defend many clients against a wide variety of criminal charges. Kevin voraciously rose to the challenge, and has done so ever since. Kevin joined the Kirkpatrick Law Office in November 1999, ran for US Congress in the year 2000, and in July 2001, he was made a partner of Kirkpatrick & Harris, P.C.
Kevin’s tenacious attitude and proclivity for aggressive competition have made him an excellent trial attorney. However, Kevin’s understanding of people and his innate skills in negotiation have led to numerous triumphantly settled cases. Kevin is a firm believer that his success is dependent upon the success of his clients, and Kevin will always fight for that success.
Kevin has run in the New York Marathon and rode in the Tour de Tucson, among other races. He is an award-winning collector, winning first prize at the Coconino County Fair for his bola tie collection.
During the '80s, he played rugby for the LandSharks, when playing rugby used to mean something in this town. He was a chairman on the Committee for a Better Tens Rugby Tournament for 12 years, and is now the consulting attorney for the Arizona Rugby Union and USA Rugby. In addition, he volunteers for the Flagstaff U-19 Rugby team Cobrafist.
Kevin also volunteers for Sun Sounds (an organization that helps the sight-impaired). His hobbies include skiing, archery hunting, rafting, fishing, shooting things, horseback riding, swing dancing, and SCUBA diving. He will play board games if nothing cool is going on.
