Kevin V. Mincey, Esquire

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Philadelphia

Kevin V. Mincey is a purebred trial lawyer. While the strategy he employs in each case is often what gains attention, for Kevin, it’s the people he’s working for that matter most. He approaches each case as a unique opportunity to right a wrong and improve a family’s future circumstances. Simply put, standing up for individual rights is what motivates him. Case by case, over the course of many noteworthy trials and settlements, Mr. Mincey has built a reputation for out-preparing his opponents and finding new ways to effectively try or mediate a case.


Mr. Mincey is a well-trained trial attorney who honed his trial skills and earned his reputation prosecuting and defending criminal cases. Mr. Mincey began his career at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney in 2002 before opening his own law office in 2005. As a result of his remarkable success, his law practice has expanded into the areas of personal injury and civil rights.

Education & Licenses

Attorney Mincey received his Juris Doctorate at the Howard University School of Law in Washington D.C., and a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania.

Professional & Community Involvement

Due to the consistent quality of Mr. Mincey’s work, he has been awarded many honors and has held countless esteemed positions. Mr. Mincey is a Past President of the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia and in 2017 he was named the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia Outstanding Young Lawyer. While serving as Barristers’ President, Mr. Mincey founded the Barristers’ Association of Philadelphia Expungement Clinic which to date has donated over 1 million dollars’ worth of legal services to the Philadelphia community. Mr. Mincey has also served the Philadelphia Bar Association in a number of roles including 5 years on the Board of Governors which culminated with him serving as Chair of the Board in 2017.

Additionally, Mr. Mincey is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated.

Impact Cases

Through noteworthy trial victories, Mr. Mincey has demonstrated that his attention to detail and insistence on excellent client representation can often transform cases with dire outlooks into wins.

In a case that pitted his client against a Philadelphia prison guard, Mr. Mincey’s inquisitive and assertive nature made the difference in obtaining a victory for his client. A Philadelphia prison guard (who was a former professional boxer) asserted that his brutal use of physical force was necessary to subdue Mr. Mincey’s client who had attempted to assault him while in the visiting room inside of a Philadelphia prison. Mr. Mincey was convinced that the prison guard was not telling the truth so he subpoenaed the video footage from the prison and used that video to show that the prison guard had fabricated the assault charges against his client. After convincing the District Attorney’s office to withdraw the criminal charges against his client, which resulted in his client being released from prison, Mr. Mincey filed a lawsuit against the prison guard and later obtained a large settlement for his client.

Mr. Mincey was lead counsel on a trial that resulted in his client being found not guilty of an aggravated assault accusation that could have placed his client in state prison. On the night in question, the Philadelphia Police Department accused Mr. Mincey’s client of chasing down and tackling a police officer in the middle of the street. The officer accused the defendant of purposefully doing so despite the fact that the defendant was blind. In a grand courtroom demonstration, Mr. Mincey convinced the jury that his client was innocent by encouraging him to remove his glass eye and display it to the court. Not only did the jury hearing the case find the client “not guilty,” but Mr. Mincey also won a significant settlement for his client after filing a lawsuit in federal court.

In another case, Mr. Mincey was again tasked with defending the civil rights of a client after they were unjustly attacked by the Philadelphia Police Department. The officers who initiated the confrontation claimed that Mr. Mincey’s client was publicly drunk and thus deserved the mistreatment that resulted in emergency dental surgery. After successfully defending his client against the criminal charges brought against him, Mr. Mincey brought suit against the individual police officers responsible for the serious injuries that his client suffered. The lawsuit resulted in a significant financial settlement for his client.

Mr. Mincey’s successes are not limited to Philadelphia. He has been successful defending clients in the following Pennsylvania counties: Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Bucks, Montgomery, Dauphin, Luzerne, Indiana, and Erie. It is clear that Mr. Mincey is committed to defending those who are often initially overlooked when pitted against of state organizations. Due to his familiarity with the inner workings of the judicial system, Mr. Mincey is not fazed by the challenges that are normally associated with these cases and remains committed to achieving the best result for his client.
