Kevin M. Faherty, Esq., MBA

Serving as Of Counsel to Dawson Law LLP®, Kevin advises high net worth clients on estate planning, asset protection, and business planning matters.  Understanding the complexities that often accompany the high net worth community, Kevin designs efficient strategies focused on wealth preservation, litigation avoidance, and tax minimization, including domestic and foreign asset protection trusts, revocable and irrevocable trusts, and choice of business entities.  

Prior to joining Dawson Law LLP®, Kevin began his professional career in the financial services industry supervising a department for DST Systems, a mutual fund transfer agency in Kansas City, Missouri.  In 1996, Kevin and his partner formed Centralized Showing Service, Inc. (CSS), the first ever scheduling service for the residential real estate industry.  Serving as its Executive Vice President for over twenty years, Kevin grew CSS from 200 users to over 160,000 Realtor subscribers and more than 600 employees.  In 2019, Kevin and his partner sold CSS as the nation’s largest company in its field.  Separate from CSS, Kevin also formed CodeBox, Inc., where he serves as its CEO and Chairman.  CodeBox is a fast-growing key storage lockbox manufacturing company serving the residential real estate, property management, and vacation rental industries.

Drawing from Kevin’s experience in the formation and management of multi-million dollar companies, he’s uniquely positioned to counsel clients on a wide range of business matters, including corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, business succession, and related asset and estate planning matters.

After obtaining a dual degree in Psychology and Slavic Languages from the University of Kansas, Kevin earned his Juris Doctorate, cum laude, from St. Mary’s University School of Law and his Master of Business Administration from Avila University. Kevin is a member of Real Estate, Probate, and Trust Law section of the State Bar of Texas, the Texas Center for Legal Ethics, and the College of the State Bar of Texas, an honorary organization reserved for attorneys dedicated to high ethical standards and advanced legal training.  Kevin is also a member of the San Antonio Estate Planners Council and the Society of Financial Service Professionals, a collaborative organization of professional service providers who have distinguished themselves through advanced education.

In his free time, Kevin enjoys reading history books to his 8-year old son and sitting on his balcony reading Russian and Spanish language books.  Kevin also dabbles in real estate investment, owning and managing both commercial and residential properties.
