|Kilgore Law Center in Dallas|
Kilgore Law was originally founded in 1947 by John Kilgore and his son, John Kilgore, Jr. They were joined by James Kilgore, brother of the senior. The firm began in Wichita Falls, Texas, where John Kilgore represented clients in the oil and gas business. After WWII, as the oil business grew, the Kilgores moved their law practice to Dallas to be near large banks with financing for oil transactions. After graduating from Harvard Law School, John Kilgore Jr. did substantial legal work for J. H. Whitney & Company, a New York investment firm. The work involved investments in Venezuelan oil and gas properties. Eventually, the son left Kilgore Law and became a partner at Whitney. His fluency in Spanish was a major factor in his success. The Kilgores consented to the continuation of their law practice under its original name because they wanted clients to be able to obtain information and documents pertaining to matters long closed. All of the Kilgores are now deceased. Kilgore Law is one of the few law firms in Dallas that has continued to practice under its original name for over 60 years.
