Kevin J. Handy has focused his legal practice in family law for over a decade, with an emphasis on divorce, equitable distribution, custody, support, and family law appeals.
Mr. Handy is especially adept in the mathematics of divorce and asset distribution, and regularly handles financially complex divorce cases. He is also accomplished at predicting the outcome of divorce cases, which led in turn to his frustration with the present divorce court system and its excessive costs and delays: if the results could be accurately predicted before court proceedings even begin, why should divorce take so long and cost so much? SnapDivorce was born from this very logic.
Prior to founding a law firm specializing in divorce and family law matters, Mr. Handy was an associate at Dechert LLP, one of the country’s top law firms, as part of its nationally acclaimed litigation group. While at Dechert LLP, Mr. Handy worked on numerous high profile personal injury trials, class action lawsuits, and appeals throughout the United States, including the successful appeal of the largest punitive damages verdict in U.S. history.
Mr. Handy is a graduate of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA, and the Temple University School of Law, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. While attending Temple University School of Law, Mr. Handy was a staff member of the Temple Law Review.
Mr. Handy also interned with the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit under the Honorable Theodore McKee. Mr. Handy has been honored on several occasions as a Super Lawyer Rising Star based on surveys of other attorneys.
Mr. Handy has always applied a cut-to-the-chase philosophy in his law practice. “I was appalled by the waste in money and time that I saw in traditional divorce over the years. If you want a divorce that is fair, efficient, and low-pressure, SnapDivorce is the way to do it.”
In his personal life, Mr. Handy enjoys running with his wife and competing in 5K and 10K races throughout the year, and spending time with his children.
