Kilgore & Kilgore PLLC

Kilgore Law is a boutique law firm that is intentionally small, offering personal service, one to one. Each of our dozen lawyers specializes in a particular practice area. We are proud of our track-record of achieving results for our clients with skill and tenacity.

We are well known for our employment law practice in defense of the employee. We recently added a lawyer with decades of experience in company management representation. Other specialities in our law practice include commercial litigation, consumer protection, FINRA arbitrations, personal injury plaintiff defense, and employee benefits litigation.

Kilgore Law was founded in 1947 by John Kilgore and his son, John Kilgore, Jr. They were joined by James Kilgore, brother of the senior. The firm began in Wichita Falls, Texas, where John Kilgore represented clients in oil and gas. After WWII, as the oil business grew, the Kilgores moved their law practice to Dallas to be near large banks that financed oil and gas transactions. After graduating from Harvard Law School, John Kilgore Jr. did substantial legal work for J. H. Whitney & Company, a New York investment firm. The work involved investments in Venezuelan oil and gas properties. Eventually, the son left Kilgore & Kilgore and became a partner at Whitney. Later, the Kilgores consented to the continuation of their law practice under its original name because they wanted clients to be able to obtain information and documents pertaining to matters long closed. All of the Kilgores are now deceased. Kilgore Law is one of the few law firms in Dallas that has continued to practice under its original name for over 70 years.
