Kevin Caiaccio

Managing Attorney

Kevin Caiaccio, founder of Caiaccio Law Firm, has more than 25 years of experience practicing commercial real estate law. His cut-through-the-noise mentality encourages clients and colleagues to be selective and focus on big-picture solutions. He believes in fighting for what’s important, and filtering through obstacles that distract.
Kevin is recognized among his peers and network as a commercial real estate law industry leader and expert. In addition to commercial real estate law, Kevin has strong ties to the business of real estate investment through years of respected relationships with real estate sponsors, lenders, developers and investors. He is a frequent lecturer on real estate investment and development as well as equity structuring for commercial real estate ventures. In recognition of his skill, integrity, and professionalism, Kevin was awarded an AV Peer Review Rating by LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell – the most prestigious rating that can be achieved by an attorney.
A native of Atlanta, Kevin is a graduate of Georgia State University. He earned his J.D. degree, cum laude, from The University of Georgia School of Law in 1995, where he was a member of the Managing Board and the Editorial Board of the Georgia Law Review. He has been a member of the State Bar of Georgia since 1995.
When he’s not practicing law, Kevin enjoys spending time with his family and appreciates the outdoor recreation the north Georgia mountains have to offer, including fly fishing and hiking. While enjoying the outdoors provides Kevin with a respite from the office, his favorite past times illustrate his calm and steady demeanor and knack for thorough and thoughtful problem solving that result in superior big picture solutions.
A native Atlantan, Kevin is married and resides in Sandy Springs with his wife and daughter. He enjoys fly fishing, hiking, golf and chess.
