Attorney Kyle Findley
As a sixth generation Texan with an attorney for a father, Attorney Kyle Findley is proud to provide his clients with high-quality legal representation in cases that range from land contamination to personal injury cases. He attended high school in Tyler, Texas and went onto the prestigious University of Texas in Austin where he graduated high university honors and a Bachelor of Arts in government.
From there, he did not enter directly into law school and, at the time, had no intentions of pursing a legal career. Instead, he went to work for a national commercial real estate firm working with investment sales for both institutions and individuals of high net worth. While gaining considerable experience in handling negotiation skills for complex transactions, he was able to close the firm's largest national transaction.
He, however, found that he did not find the personal fulfillment that he needed when dealing with this type of case. Looking for more of a challenge, Kyle moved on to law school and enrolled in the South Texas College of Law in Houston. There he participated in mock trial tournaments, moot court competitions and arbitration competitions. He was also able to clerk for Arnold & Itkin, LLP where he eventually went to work as a full fledged attorney as soon as he graduated with his law degree in hand.
Now, Kyle is proud to put his talents to work in representing clients throughout the local Houston area, the state and even nationwide. He strongly believes in providing high-quality legal representation when it is needed most and will go the distance in his efforts to provide his clients with the assistance that they need when it is needed most. Clients can rest assured knowing that by pairing a hard work ethic with creative answers that he is always prepared for the most daunting of situations. Kyle is also currently a member of the Houston Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.
