About This Firm

Our business philosophy is simple and straightforward. We are advocates for fairness and justice for all, regardless of size, position, or wealth: we have represented a Fortune 500 banking institution in a banking case, a store clerk in a retaliation dispute, a billionaire in recovering assets, and an indigent accused of a crime. We are passionate about our work and become deeply and personally involved in the short and long term needs of our clients. Our hands-on approach puts us where the action is, whether that is a construction site, an assembly line, a suburban office or the courtroom.

Kilgore & Kilgore has a team of highly qualified attorneys and a well-trained, skilled, support staff of paralegal and administrative personnel. We offer leading-edge technologies and a strong infrastructure, which allow us to provide the most effective solutions. We have earned a position of respect within the legal profession, the judicial system and the business world. We believe that size is relative only to our reputation. We are small enough to provide personal service and involvement, yet large enough to offer the experience and knowledge needed to be successful.


One of the oldest law firms in Dallas, we built our reputation on experience, versatility and education. Founded in 1948, we began our law practice in the oil field, quickly becoming one of the premiere oil and gas law firms in the Southwest. During the '60s and '70s, we expanded our client base to include banks and real estate developers. In the '80s, we became known for our representation of small businesses and entrepreneurs struggling to compete. During the '90s, we set ground-breaking precedents in employment law and antitrust. Today, we are a boutique litigation firm representing executives, inventors and investors.


We are proud of our track-record of achieving measurable results. The skills and tenacity of our lawyers have produced satisfying solutions in numerous cases including:

An overtime class action case where we defended our client on a flexible-fee and reverse-contingency basis,

A fraud claim against a vendor that resulted in the incarceration of the vendor and a million dollar judgment for our client, Ericsson, Inc., and

A theft of trade secret claim against Mary Kay, Inc., for our client, Anisa International.


We are trial lawyers who have argued and appealed in all major courts, including the Supreme Court of Texas and the U.S. Supreme Court. We are adept and comfortable in the courtroom. We know how to make a case to a jury. When mediation fails, we can go to court and win. State-of-the-art multi-media presentations combined with experience on the judicial floors assures that a matter will be argued convincingly and competently. Our objective is to resolve the issue in our client's favor, and we will do all within our means to make it happen.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
