“Conflict is never easy. I found myself cross-wise with a huge investment bank with thousands of employees and teams of lawyers. A former colleague suggested I get the Kilgore team on my side. Robert Thornton and Ted Anderson built and captained their team while walking me through a multi-year process with my head held high. They guided me with expert legal and practical business advice. They didn’t stretch, fabricate or over-reach. Their hard work and skilled navigation of the FINRA arbitration process allowed us to prevail and gave me confidence and peace during this grueling marathon.” TMW, Private Wealth Manager, Wrongful Termination and Forfeiture of Deferred Compensation, 2014
There was a man at my church, a lawyer, who helped my family with a problem. The results that he achieved were inspiring, and my parents were very happy as a result of this man’s help. I was about 12 or 13 years old at the time. That memory inspired me when it was time to choose a career. Like that man in my memory, I wanted to help people solve their problems. So, I became an attorney. I have had a very rewarding career. I enjoy finding the many ways people can be helped and relieved of their burdens. One case I particularly remember. The case was being tried out of town. My family came into town so we could celebrate my son’s birthday together. It was an anti-trust suit we won after five weeks in court. In the future, I would like to work on non-subscriber claims involving people injured at work.
