Kevin J. Block, Esq.
I received my JD in 2006 from New College of California School of Law.
In 2012, I took and passed the California Bar.
During law school, I interned at the Housing Clinic, the Public Defenders Office and the Prison Law Office at San Quentin.
I have served as the director of Immigrant Services for the County of Maui's Department of Housing and Human Concerns for the past four and one half years. Prior to that, I was the deputy director of the BEST program at MEO, which is a reentry program for people who are getting out of jail. Before that I worked at the Legal Aid Society of Hawaii as a benefits advocate and a Fair Housing Investigator.
During the past ten years I have served my community in many capacities with membership on boards and commissions including the Maui County Domestic Violence Task Force, the Maui Area Service Board on Mental Health and Substance Abuse, The Board of Directors of the Maui Aids Foundation, The Executive Committee of the Kula Community Association, The Commission on Culture and the Arts and the Homeless Alliance.
I am currently a member of the Hawaii Coalition for Immigration Reform and the Hawaii Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
My mother is an immigrant who naturalized in 1952. I believe in the legitimacy and value that immigrants bring to our communities and our nation and I am tirelessly advocating at the local, state and federal level for comprehensive, humane and responsible immigration reform.
Immigration Law is one of the most complicated areas of law and it can be frustrating and even frightening to deal with. I have years of experiences with successful results and good, long-term relationships with many of the agencies and individuals that are part of the process.
