Behind a Good Trial Lawyer…

… is Kelly, Durham & Pittard, LLP. A critical perspective that often evades a litigator’s analysis is that of the judge. In litigating cases, it is critical to keep not only the jury in mind, but also the trial judge and the appellate justices.

Kirk Pittard and Leighton Durham formed this firm in 2004 to help trial attorneys maintain this perspective. Their prior experience as briefing attorneys for court of appeals and federal court judges gave them a unique perspective that translated into a practice that, for the past decade, has successfully provided trial and appellate support, including substantive legal briefing, analysis and argument in family law, commercial, aviation accident, wrongful death, products liability, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical, toxic tort, environmental, wrongful termination, general personal injury, and even the occasional stolen dinosaur case in Texas and various states around the nation.

Peter Kelly, who heads the firm’s Houston office, and Thad Spalding, both Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law, have since joined the firm, making Kelly, Durham & Pittard, LLP an essential part of your trial and appellate team.
