Daley Law offices

Principal Attorney - Kevin v. daley, esq.


If you find yourself heading to a courthouse, an arbitration, a mediation, a negotiation, or a business or real estate transaction, you need someone with the rounded experience and insight who will effectively fight for your justice and best opportunities.

Problems can alter your perspective, opportunities can be derailed, but we can keep you on course.


After Kevin Daley graduated magma cum laude from Northeastern University, he joined the U.S. Peace Corps. Following months of training in Samoan culture and language, he taught refrigeration at the Western Samoa Technical Institute (now part of National University of Samoa). While there, he also founded a multi-national culture club, edited a newsletter, and was a U.S.P.C. delegate to U.N. International Volunteer Day and to the U.S. Navy's Project Handclasp.


At Howard University School of Law in Washington, D.C., on scholarship, Kevin was one of its few Caucasians graduates. He won awards and earned a spot on the national and international moot court teams. He and his classmates protested the Rodney King L.A. controversy across from the White House. Kevin also was a law clerk at federal government agencies and marched in President Clinton’s inaugural parade.


In Boston, a stint with a law firm kicked off Attorney Daley’s legal career, working for a partner who was the president of the Massachusetts Bar Association. Kevin's own law firm—in Government Center, Boston, for a dozen years—was in Cambridge until Covid-19. (See Practice Areas).

Kevin also has enjoyed: Social Law Library’s program, Kafka and the Law; judging at the American Trial Lawyers Association competition at the federal courthouse; and judging at the Boston University School of Law moot court competition.


He has been an adjunct professor of law for over two decades at Bunker Hill Community College of Boston. He is now an adjunct professor law and ethics at Northeastern University, since 2013 (in 2021 he phased out Bunker Hill due teaching half time at Northeastern). Working with his students keeps the law's purpose and evolution fresh in his mind.


Volunteering included: the Boston Area Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, a community non-profit corporation where he was a board member and vice president; People Making a Difference; Cambridge Cares About Aids; local schools such as King Open; and campaigns for U.S. congress and Cambridge city council. 

Playtime: softball and sailing, hikes and bikes, snowboards and soaring on roller-blades--but not simultaneously. Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee Hidy Ochiai awarded Kevin a black belt in Washin-Ryu karate after years of overseeing his training, practice, and competitions in kata, sparring, and weapons. Tennis is now his favorite.

Kevin studied fiction writing at UCLA with mentor and best-selling novelist Lynn Hightower. He also studied at Grub Street, Boston’s premier non-profit creative writing center, including a Masters Novel class, and at Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Kevin loved the summer novel-writing program at Charles University, Prague, on scholarship, with authors Robert Everz and Arnost Lustig and with Professor Petr Bilk, Chair of the Czech Literature Dept. Kevin also joined a select group of writers at a Pacific coast lighthouse for an Algonkian novel-writing workshop.
