AV-Rated Health Care Counsel. 27-Year Lawyer. Former Federal Law Clerk. AVVO 10.

Kevin Little has over 27 years of experience as an attorney and is committed to protecting healthcare providers. He is a skilled, experienced problem solver who represents successful medical practices and other healthcare providers, licensed professionals and healthcare related business owners in transactions and difficult legal disputes.

Kevin is a Georgia native. During law school, among other internships and clerkships, Kevin served in the IRS District Counsel’s office in Atlanta. Kevin worked his way through both college and law school. After completing his legal education, Kevin began his legal career with back-to-back Federal Judicial Clerkships, first for Hon. John S. Dalis, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Georgia (1991-1993), then for Hon. Dudley H. Bowen, Jr., U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia (1993-1995). He then entered the private practice of law as a business litigation associate for Hicks Maloof & Campbell (now McKenna Long & Aldridge) in Atlanta, then held a similar position with Henderson & Salley (now Hull Barrett), in Aiken, South Carolina. Kevin has maintained his own law practice for over 21 years, both in partnership with other lawyers and as a solo practitioner. He is licensed to practice law in Georgia and South Carolina.

Having extensive litigation-based experience representing healthcare providers, businesses and professionals in many state and federal courts, Kevin focuses his law practice exclusively on the healthcare industry, representing medical practices, individual physicians and physician groups, other licensed healthcare providers and professionals, and closely held healthcare-related businesses and individuals. Kevin advises and represents his healthcare clients in transactions, contracts and operations, often dealing with unique and esoteric regulatory, administrative and medical board matters. He also represents and advocates for his healthcare clients in complex civil litigation in state and federal court, at the trial and appellate levels, as well as arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution. He is licensed in Georgia and South Carolina. Kevin has held Martindale Hubbell's prestigious AV-rating for over fifteen years and is rated "10" by AVVO.

When not practicing law, Kevin enjoys cycling and other fitness activities, boating, golf, traveling abroad and, above all, the company of his family and friends.
