I'm Kay Van Wey, a Board Certified Texas Personal Injury Lawyer. My clients are everyday people who have been involved in a serious accident, experienced a life-altering injury, or been harmed by a medical facility, device, or prescription drug.
My team and I take personalized, hands-on approach to help our clients navigate the legal system and ultimately achieve the justice and compensation they deserve.
In experiencing my own personal family tragedy in my late 30's, I understand first-hand what it feels like to be a victim and go through the difficult process of healing and the road to justice. This is one of the primary reasons that I do this work. I am passionate about helping my clients through that same process.
In my 30 years of practicing law, I've been recognized by my peers as a Texas Super Lawyer for 14 consecutive years (2003 to 2016). I've also been named to D Magazine's 'D Best' list of Dallas-based lawyers for 2016.
