I know how to craft innovative solutions to problems and plot strategies that win cases for my clients. When I present an argument, the adverse lawyers tend to see aspects of the case they hadn’t considered and often must rethink their position. That’s the kind of advocacy it takes to overturn $88 million verdicts and win major summary judgments and dismissals.
As head of the firm’s Professional Liability group, Kelli Hinson helps navigate cases for major law firms, healthcare institutions, corporations, and the professionals who run them. She has handled claims against lawyers and law firms from almost every angle — representing other lawyers and major law firms around the country, serving as general counsel of her firm, and sitting on the Dallas Grievance Committee and the Texas Board of Disciplinary Appeals.
Kelli’s practice is both broad and deep, and she applies her highly informed legal acumen to shareholder disputes, derivative claims, and employment cases, including non-competition, discrimination, and FLSA matters. Her broad range of experience makes her a “go-to” attorney for high-stakes business litigation. As an amazingly quick study, she has yet to meet a legal problem she couldn’t eventually master. Kelli’s meticulous dissection of cases against her clients can leave the other side wondering what hit them.
When cases or issues get taken up on appeal, Kelli is armed and ready. Plaintiffs’ attorneys seek out her briefing skills when multi-million-dollar personal injury cases are on the line. Kelli’s stellar writing talent serves as a natural fit with her appellate practice, and she enjoys the intellectual challenge of distilling complex legal concepts into winning arguments.
Kelli knows how to take ownership of matters and get things done. She engenders a great deal of confidence, and clients trust her to guide them wisely through difficult circumstances. It turns out that the high school teacher who told Kelli during a debate project that she’d make a good lawyer was spot on.
