Attorney Kala Sellers
Kala joined Arnold & Itkin in 2014 with a passion for law and justice that developed many years ago. She believes that every individual deserves an advocate who will fight tirelessly on their behalf and has committed herself to doing just that for each of her clients. As a young girl, she often performed on stage. It is these life experiences that give her confidence as a trial lawyer in the courtroom.
Kala majored in Political Science at Duke University and graduated with a degree in Media Studies and Policy Journalism. The courses she took at Duke were foundational to her future career as a lawyer. Furthermore, Kala also learned a great deal when she spent a semester as an intern for CNN in New York.
Stopping with an undergraduate degree was not enough for Kala. She was inspired to take her education even further by enrolling in Baylor Law School. She knew that this would allow her to realize her dreams of becoming an advocate for those in need. While at Baylor, Kala was an active member of numerous organizations including the AAJ National Mock Trial Team, the ABA Labor Law Mock Trial Team, and the NCTC Mock Trial Team. Kala also finished as a semifinalist in the Baylor Top Gun Competition. This competition served as a mock trial tournament that helped further hone her legal skills. Upon graduation, Kala was a five time Dean's List student, which was indicative of her commitment to her studies while at Baylor.
Following her years at Baylor, Kala went on to join a small firm in Houston that focused primarily on personal injury cases in both state and federal court. This experience served as a backdrop to her current practice at Arnold & Itkin. Kala is licensed to practice in Louisiana, Texas, and the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. She successfully tried numerous cases to verdict in state and federal courts within the first 10 months of joining Arnold & Itkin, gaining extensive experience in front of juries.
She loves to travel and enjoys spending free time with her husband. Kala remains a fervent Duke Basketball devotee and loves supporting her team at the games.
