Kevin Harp

Kevin graduated from the State University of New York at Albany with a Bachelor’s Degree of Arts in Economics in 1995. He graduated Albany Law School in 2000. He currently specializes in personal injury litigation and criminal defense. Kevin serves on the Character and Fitness Committee for the Third Judicial Department, having been appointed in 2018.

Prior to working in plaintiff ’s personal injury law, Kevin honed his trial skills and gained valuable experience as a felony-level prosecutor for 8 years with the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office. During the course of his career as a prosecutor, Kevin was tasked by the District Attorney with the responsibility of supervising The Ulster Regional Gang Enforcement Narcotics Team, a county-wide task force handling violent felonies and drug cases. Kevin has successfully tried circumstantial evidence cases, a shooting case where the victim was not available for trial, and a cold case burglary trial based on DNA evidence.

The experience as a prosecutor has helped Kevin tremendously in his representation of clients in personal injury cases. The prior experience of investigating all aspects of major felony cases and preparing them for trial has given Kevin an invaluable asset he applies to all his personal injury cases. He used to work tirelessly for those who were victims of crimes and now he applies that effort towards his clients in their personal injury cases.
