Darren Kavinoky is no stranger to the television cameras, courtroom, or the speaker’s podium – he is an accomplished trial lawyer, a well-known television host and legal analyst, and a compelling keynote speaker.
Darren Kavinoky is the co-creator and host of the hit TV show Deadly Sins on Investigation Discovery. He is also the co-host of Did He Do It? and the featured “criminal interventionist” on Breaking Point, also on the ID network. Darren is also a certified interventionist, attorney and legal analyst, and “misbehavior” expert who appears constantly on the Today show, The View, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, CNN, HLN, Fox News, and countless other TV and radio shows.
He is the founder of 1.800.NoCuffs–The Kavinoky Law Firm and is known as an award-winning criminal defense attorney. The American Trial Lawyers Association has named him one of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers in California” each year since 2007. Los Angeles magazine has identified Darren as a “SuperLawyer” every year since 2010. Darren received an “AV Preeminent Rating” by Martindale-Hubbell (a peer review ranking that signals the highest level of professional excellence and ethics); a perfect 10.0 Rating by Avvo.com (an independent attorney ranking site), and many other accolades. Darren has also authored three legal textbooks for major legal publishers in the field of criminal law.
More important than his professional accomplishments is the compelling inspirational tale he has to share.
Once an overweight kid from a dysfunctional family, he went on to suffer from his own addictions which plagued him for many years. To call his downward spiral a “bottom” is a gross understatement; Darren lost everything. But in May of 2000, after two decades of battling his demons, Darren experienced a pivotal moment. Since then, the kid who wore “husky” sized Toughskins has completed seven Ironman triathlons. The bankrupt attorney who swept floors in a furniture store created several multi-million dollar businesses. As an interventionist and as a keynote speaker, Darren is now obsessed with helping people and organizations produce their own pivotal moments that are just as powerful.
Darren is a true “misbehavior” expert – his own and other peoples! This has given Darren a unique and refreshing perspective. He has the innate ability to authentically connect with people from all walks of life, from white collar to blue collar to no collar, a talent that has resulted in rave reviews from jurors, TV producers, and live audiences alike.
