The Kevin Steele I know doesn’t have a dishonest bone in his body; contrary to what the SFO say, this is no victory for honesty – it is my very sincere hope that truth and justice will ultimately prevail.

Reply Link Miashco 6 December 2011 at 14:17 So if he is innocent why are the two co-defendants pleading guilty and why aren’t his former employers defending him to the hilt? Reply Link Anonymous 6 December 2011 at 19:56 He was one of the best, good old Kev he always got a round in. He was just doing his best for a client and now he’s doing porridge. It’s not right Reply Link Anonymous 13 December 2011 at 08:56 I also know Kevin and have done for many years and have always found him to be a honourable and decent man. I cannot believe that he would entertain serious fraud and it is my hope that he appeals this conviction and is found not guilty. Chin up Kevin Reply Link Anonymous 17 December 2011 at 09:30 Kev is a good bloke. I worked with him in the 90’s and its hard to believe the mess he is in. I lift my pint to him and wish him well, he has a lot of supporters. cheers matey Reply Link Anonymous 7 January 2012 at 16:51 Kevin’s case sums up Mishcon de Reya when I worked there in the 1990s: Greed, aggressiveness, rudeness and arrogance Reply Link Anonymous 27 January 2012 at 09:21 Nice bloke has nothing to do with it. He has been convicted and this is ging to cost us when he is eventually struck off. Reply Link Ben Zingh 2 February 2012 at 21:22 kev was the House MD of the legal world and he is a great bloke. i think he was taken in and made a grave misjudgement i hope he gets through this. he didnt need money and was not money motivated i think he was just trying to impress a client and so that he could still show he was a big player at mishcon. he should have semi retired to a his own Surrey practice years ago. what a shame. i hope your ok big man. Reply Link Graham Cornhill 5 February 2012 at 14:18 I too have known Kevin for years, he has never in my opinion been motivated by money, he has always been a loyal and trusting man that believes in his clients and would never have knowingly done such a thing. I will welcome the day he is free as this truly is a miscarriage of justice. Our thoughts are with you Kevin… Reply Link Anonymous 13 March 2012 at 04:48 I worked with kevin in the early 90s and this does not add up to me.
