          About Kevin Carney

          Kevin Carney is a defense lawyer that is dedicated to using his legal knowledge to serve his community. Born and raised in Stockton, California, Kevin considers it an honor to help protect the constitutional rights of his neighbors, friends, and fellow California natives. Prior to starting his legal career, Kevin joined the Peace Corps in Guatemala for two years, where he learned to speak, write and read Spanish fluently. This experience has fueled his interest and sensitivity to how criminal cases can impact a client’s immigration status. At the Nieves Law Firm, Kevin focuses on representing clients facing serious criminal charges.

          Some of Kevin’s exemplary legal work is best portrayed by the results he received for clients facing serious criminal penalties. He has successfully secured a “Not Guilty” verdict for a client facing murder charges in Stockton, California, and has received acquittals for two clients facing potential prison sentences of over 50 years for an alleged Robbery and an alleged Carjacking, both in San Joaquin County. Kevin has also received several acquittals for clients facing criminal charges related to domestic violence, DUIs, and burglary in a number of counties throughout the Bay Area.

          Kevin has been working as a criminal defense attorney for over 14 years, graduating from UC Davis College of Law in 2006. He started out his legal career working as a Public Defender in San Joaquin County. His experiences there helped him get a better understanding of San Joaquin’s criminal justice system, and he accumulated a myriad of trial experience and training, which qualifies him to handle death penalty cases pursuant to California Rules of Court section 4.117.

          When Kevin is not helping clients with their legal needs, he enjoys reading, writing and biking. He is a big fan of ocean swimming, and has swam in events such as the South End Rowing Club’s Alcatraz Invitational and the Tiburon Mile.
