  • Vaughan R De Kirby

    As an attorney with a 25-year background of representing injured victims I feel very confident in my recommendation of Robert Kraft and the fine attorneys that are part of Kraft & Associates PC. Robert Kraft has over 39 years experience fighting for the rights of victims of medical malpractice, automobile accidents, birth injuries and those who have suffered serious injury as a result of defective products. The firm is relentless in its commitment to achieving justice on behalf of the victim and their families. Mr. Kraft is recognized by his peers as an exceptional attorney serving as Director Emeritus of the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association. He served as President of the North Dallas Bar Association and at this writing is a Director of that organization. If you, a friend or a family member has suffered injury as a result of an automobile accident, birth injury, or a defective product there is only one firm to call in the state of Texas and that is Robert Kraft and Associates.

    I have known Bob Kraft for several years through an online legal discussion group and have sought his advice several times. Bob is incredibly knowlegeable yet modest. He has always brought considerable wisdom, common sense and perspective to the legal issues that we have well as a good dose of humor. After thirty years of a successful practice, I am certain that Bob could easily rest on his laurels, but he is constantly improving himself and his firm, either incorporating new practice areas or mastering new types of technology to deliver the best possible service to his clients. Any lawyer or client would be fortunate to work with Bob or his firm and therefore, I endorse Bob without reservation.
