About the Law Office of Koby Kirkland

I’ve been handling injury cases since obtaining my Texas law license in 2014. I know the process of how injury claims work, but more importantly, how to present a case in its best light to give it the best chance of a good recovery. 
 
In 2020, I expanded my practice into Alabama, where the Law Office of Koby Kirkland, LLC is headquartered in downtown Mobile. From here, I represent injured folks throughout Alabama and Texas, and nationwide in my federal tort and vaccine practices.
 
I was born and raised in a West Texas city called Odessa--we're known for Friday Night Lights and the oilfield. Growing up, I worked all kinds of jobs: on my grandad's ranches, waiting tables, car audio, high-rise window washing, oilfield pipelining, even a stint as a Disneyworld cashier! I got my first job at a law firm in the summer of 2007, processing thousands of federal tort claims related to Hurricane Katrina. After college, I went on a 14,000-mile motorcycle trip across the country, then worked for several injury law firms before deciding to go to law school.  
 
I met my wife, Catherine, at the University of Texas. She is also an attorney (and a better one than me!) and is the mother of our children, Ben and Sam, and baby Claire on the way! 
 
I am competent but I’m also kind. I’m not a jerk who will treat the other side like garbage. That’s not my style. After all, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
 
I represent injured folks because I like working for people—families and individuals, not corporations and businesses. From bad laws, unreasonable insurance companies, and the complicated legal process, in a lot of ways the deck is stacked against injured victims. Helping people who got a raw deal navigate these obstacles and get some kind of justice is why I do this work.
