About me

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.


I'm a member of the Million and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum because of the past results I have achieved for my clients.


I am licensed to practice law in Texas, Oklahoma, and Illinois and is admitted to practice before the US District Court for Northern District of Texas, the US District Court for Eastern District of Texas, the US District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma and the US District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.
