Kyle Findley


Kyle Findley's Headshot

It’s no mystery why Kyle Findley is regarded by colleagues and adversaries as one of the finest trial lawyers in the United States. For instance, in a single year, Kyle had two verdicts that were the largest verdict of the year in their respective states. In fact, many of his verdicts have achieved historic status or been recognized by legal publications, including the largest burn injury verdict, the second-largest product liability verdict, and the third-largest brain injury verdict. He’s won multiple verdicts that have placed in the top 20, 50, and 100 verdicts of the year for the whole country. In 2023 alone, Kyle recovered over $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for his clients, with over $900 million in jury verdicts alone throughout his career. His record of verdicts and settlements would be a staggering achievement for a litigator more than twice his age, with many billions of dollars secured for plaintiffs who’ve experienced life-changing tragedy.

"Being a trial lawyer is more than a job. It is a commitment to bring justice and be the voice for those faced with tragedy, when no one else will listen. It's that simple, no one will fight for justice as hard as we will."


Kyle Findley’s results are the consequence of his fearlessness when it comes to complex or demanding litigation. He seeks out cases with extraordinary factual and legal obstacles—cases that, typically, other lawyers turn away due to the significant investment of time and effort they demand. Due to his relentless investigation and aggressive preparation, Kyle has obtained dozens of verdicts worth tens or hundreds of millions after the defendants refused to settle.

Some of his most recent results include the following:

  • $557 million verdict for a woman struck by a Union Pacific train
  • $177.5 million settlement for industrial incident.
  • $139 million settlement for the victims of a pipeline explosion
  • $120 million settlement for industrial incident.
  • $96 million settlement for workers hurt in industrial incident.
  • $92.7 million settlement for an injured plant worker
  • $76 million verdict in a pharmaceutical case
  • $51 million settlement for workers injured in an explosion
  • $46.5 million settlement for workers injured in an explosion
  • $42 million settlement for an injured plant worker
  • $40 million settlement for Jones Act seamen
  • $35.5 million settlement for a commercial vehicle wreck
  • $38 million settlement for oilfield incident
  • $33 million verdict for an injured paper mill worker
  • $27.7 million verdict for the family of a worker killed on an offshore platform
  • $17 million settlement for injured plant workers
  • $16.4 million settlement for a wrongful death case
  • $16.1 million verdict for an injured plant worker
  • $15.5 million verdict for an injured plant worker
  • $14.5 million settlement for an injured worker
  • $13 million settlement for an injured plant worker
  • $12.5 million settlement for electrocution
  • $10 million settlement for commercial vehicle wreck
  • $9.1 million verdict for a Jones Act seaman

Through sheer will and legal ingenuity, Kyle has overwhelmed defense teams with deeper pockets and larger rosters. As a result, few attorneys instill as much confidence and compel as much trust from plaintiffs. Even fewer display the exceptional trial skills Kyle has developed over years of legal practice. As a result, he’s often invited to speak at legal conferences to share the insights he’s gleaned in the courtroom. His recent speaking engagements include conventions in Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and London.

Growing up in East Texas, Kyle developed a deep, lifelong commitment to advocating for people in need against adversaries who were far bigger or stronger. When the time came to choose a career, he chose the law because he wanted to make a concrete difference in people’s lives. From the start, he set out to hold corporations accountable for the harm they cause to plaintiffs of all kinds. In relatively few years, he’s faced down—and beaten—some of the biggest companies in the world, making his clients whole.

For instance, Kyle once tried a case against Union Pacific after a train struck a young woman and left her permanently impaired. The company held fast to its strategy: taking zero responsibility, leaving our client to suffer with no money for medical care or other needs. The jury sided with Kyle’s case, awarding our client an award of $557 million—one of the largest verdicts in Texas history ever won by a single plaintiff.

Just two weeks prior to that, Kyle tried a case in federal court for a man who was killed on an offshore rig. The defendant, Talos, blamed the man’s co-workers. After trying the case for nine days, the jury awarded $27.7 million to the family of the deceased—setting a record for wrongful death verdicts in Louisiana.

From the start, Kyle’s approach to law set him apart.

He was one of the youngest attorneys to ever receive a lifetime membership to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, then the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum shortly after that. He’s been named to the “Top 40 Under 40” list by the National Trial Lawyers multiple years running and has been recognized by the Best Lawyers in America, named to the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars™, and recognized by Super Lawyers®. In 2020, Texas Monthly Magazine included Kyle in the Top 100 Up-and-Coming Attorneys in Texas, and the American Institute of Trial Lawyers named him the Personal Injury Litigator of the Year. Additionally, Kyle was recognized in the Nation’s Top One Percent of Trial Lawyers by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel and has received a host of other awards.

Kyle studied government with business foundations for his undergraduate degree at the University of Texas in Austin and graduated with honors. He then studied law at South Texas College of Law and took his first steps into plaintiff advocacy as a clerk for Arnold & Itkin. As soon as he joined the firm as a litigator, he began building a reputation as one of the top trial lawyers at a firm with no shortage of exceptional trial lawyers. He’s since been honored to build Arnold & Itkin into a world-class advocate for plaintiffs as the lead of his own trial team. Today, Kyle serves as a leader and mentor to new generations of lawyers while carving his way through big defendants with innovative legal tactics and unrelenting energy.
