Originally from South Jordan, Kevin Kemp earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Utah. Prior to becoming an attorney, Kevin spent nearly ten years working in the research and development division of Michelin North America, the retail side of Bridgestone Firestone Retail & Commercial Operations, and as an outside salesman for the parts department at Gus Paulos Chevrolet. During the economic recession in 2008, Kevin finally decided to pursue his childhood dream of helping others as a lawyer.
Kevin attended Washburn University School of Law, where he graduated in December 2011 with Dean’s Honors. As a student, he was appointed to the Honor Code Committee by the faculty. He competed in the American Bar Association Law Student Division Negotiation Competition during his second and third years in school. In 2012, he and his partner took fourth place at the national competition in New Orleans, Louisiana. During his final year of law school, Kevin served as an English/Spanish translator for the Washburn University Law Clinic.
As a student, Kevin decided to enhance his education with hands-on experience. He worked as a law clerk for South Jordan City, gaining experience under the supervision of the Assistant City Attorney and the City Prosecutor. He was also an intern for the Solicitor General in the Kansas Office of the Attorney General during his second year of law school. Based on his coursework and practical experience as a student, he was awarded a Certificate in Advocacy at graduation. Immediately before coming to Pearson Butler Mr. Kemp had his own law practice focused on criminal defense, family law cases including adoptions and child support issues, small business representation, and general civil litigation. Kevin has since narrowed his practice to focus on providing excellent criminal defense for clients all over the state of Utah.
