About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Attorney Thomas W. Kyle received his law degree Cum Laude with Highest Honors from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota. His entire career has been dedicated to representing victims of serious injury and death.

Tom's achievements in law school earned him membership in to the Silver Gavel Honor Society and made him the recipient of the Dean's Scholarship for Outstanding Academic Achievement. Attorney Kyle went on to compete nationally for Hamline as Chief Plaintiffs' Counsel in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America's Mock Trial Competition.

A high success rate in injury litigation over the last 25 years has affirmed Tom’s belief in the jury system. He is confident that if jurors hear all the relevant facts they will always render the just verdict. Determining what is required to motivate jurors to action is what drives case value.

A passion for honing his skills as a trial lawyer and being a zealous advocate for his clients has led to Tom traveling the country to keep current on the craft of trial presentation.

"Raving Fan" of Thomas Kyle
I cannot “Rave” enough about Tom and his professionalism and expertise advise in handling a number of legal issues that I have encountered over the last 10+ years. His guidance and recommendations have been very beneficial to my personal and business affairs. I would recommend Tom to discuss any legal situation you may encounter for his thought leadership and guidance

Great advise, ethical, tenacious.
I needed some expert advise involving a contractural agreement with a building contractor, and a subcontractor attempting to file a lein. Tom really helped me out and made what could have been a legal mess, a breeze.

Accident Attorney
Tom not only demonstrated an intensely intricate understanding of the law, but his understanding of the medical and insurance industries proved invaluable in reaching a suitable settlement. Tom took the time to understand the subtlties of our claim, presented viable options for resolution and then executed to the plan we agreed to. The entire process was very transparent so I always felt involved and aware of the current status.
