Kevin Koelbel - Legal Counsel
After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and a teaching certificate, Kevin accepted a full-time substitute teaching position in Syosset, New York. While searching for a regular full-time position, his father, a custom woodworker suffered a heart attack. Kevin, who had worked with his father growing up, agreed to help out his father, until his father recovered. That worked out so well, Kevin never went back to teaching.
After ten years, his father was ready to scale back the business and Kevin, now married, wanted to start a family. After several visits to his in-laws in Tucson, Kevin and his wife agreed that Tucson provided more affordable opportunities for a young couple than Long Island. One of those opportunities was law school. It would not seem that custom woodworking and law have much in common. Substantively, that is true. But both require patience, practice, and careful attention to detail if they are to be done well.
Kevin graduated Arizona State University College of Law in 1995. His practice includes civil appeals, employment law, and school law. He is admitted to practice in Arizona state and federal courts, the Unites States Court of Appeals for the Ninth and Tenth Circuits, and the United States Supreme Court. He recently appeared before the United States Supreme Court in successful opposition to First Unum Life Insurance Company's petition for review of a Ninth Circuit opinion interpreting the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.
