Learn Kenneth’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Appeals
    All manner of civil appeals, including family law.

  2. Probate
    Probate of wills, determination of heirship, guardianships Contested litigation

I grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated from the University of Texas and then Texas Tech Law School. 

I practice primarily in the areas of civil litigation and family law, with an emphasis on appellate issues in both areas. I also devote a portion of my practice to probate matters. My probate practice encompasses most areas of estate and trust administration, representing executors, trustees, heirs and beneficiaries in contested and uncontested matters.

Attorneys consult with me on civil litigation and family law cases regarding issues requiring particularized attention both at the trial court and appellate levels. This gives me a unique perspective that benefits both my litigation and appellate clients.

I help trial counsel focus on other areas of litigation by assisting them with legal issues, briefing, and positioning cases for successful appeals. This includes partnering with trial counsel before filing lawsuits and assisting throughout the litigation. I also assist individual parties with appealing judgments. My appellate experience spans from personal injury to family-law appeals.

Among other things, I represent appellate clients throughout Texas.  My practice involves handling dispositive motions, post-verdict and post-judgment motions, mandamus proceedings, interlocutory appeals, and regular appeals. I also assist with jury charges and appealing default judgments.

Couldn't have been better!
Upon hiring a different attorney and being taken advantage of I was lost, frustrated and out of enough money to pay a retainer. So I asked a question on here and received multiple answers. Kenneth stood out. He was reasonably priced and really answered all my questions. In the end I felt like I owed him more for all the information he gave me. He represented me 4 states away in wrapping up a Modification of Visitation/Child Support Orders. I will definitely use him again in ALL future issues in Texas and have already recommended him to friends and family. Thank you so much Kenneth!

"They say the best doctors are the doctors that other doctors go to when the need arises. The same can be said about lawyers. I'm a criminal defense attorney who also owns a couple businesses. I use Kenneth for all my business legal matters. He's proven himself as a knowledgeable, professional lawyer. As his client, I've found he's easy to get in touch with, his billing invoices are always fair and his legal advice is solid."
